Dead or Alive Extreme
You might be wondering where Dead or Alive sầu 6"s latest DLC character comes from since Koei Tecmo pretends that Dead or Alive sầu Xtreme doesn"t exist in North America. But it does, và you should know about it.

Dead or Alive has always been a fighting game franchise that has over accentuated their female fighters" assets. The first game released on the Sega Saturn and PlayStation 1 baông chồng in the "90s to lớn middling success, but Dead or Alive sầu 2 hit the Dreamcast & PlayStation 2 with its vastly improved hardware. Notably, the consoles allowed for then-novel "jiggle physics" that made parts of the women fighters anatomy far more life-lượt thích.

Since then it’s been pretty much standard issue for all Dead or Alive games to lớn come after it, including the bizarre spinoff series that began with Dead or Alive sầu Xtreme Beach Volleyball.

Although the game reviewed relatively well and even had some decent volleyball gameplay, you will not find a more transparent attempt to grab the eyes of lonely hetero male gamers in any other video clip game franchise.

Transparent though it may be, the ploy worked. Dead or Alive sầu Xtreme Beach Volleyball 2 came out in 2006 for the Xbox 360, followed by Dead or Alive sầu Xtreme 3 for the PS4 in 2016. However, that last game was only available for Asian audiences as Xtreme 3 never made it lớn North America.

This is where things get weird. Xtreme 3 was eventually turned inkhổng lồ a free-to-play PC version called Dead or Alive sầu Xtreme: Venus Vacation. It reuses a lot of DOAX3"s assets but adds a few minigames lớn fit the new demographic. It launched in Japan in 2017 và included English subtitles, but it never released in Europe or North America.

Venus Vacation was a huge success in Japan, however. So successful that Koei Tecmo regularly advertises using the Venus Vacation name.

It became clear in 2015 just what was going on. A Koei Tecmo employee posted a bizarre rant against DOAX3 on the company Facebook page that was quickly taken down, but in their apology, Koei Tecmo made it clear they were keeping the Dead or Alive Xtreme series to Japan/Asia-only.

Fast-forward lớn 2020 & we"ve recently found out that one of the new characters added in Venus Vacation is now coming khổng lồ Dead or Alive sầu 6 as a DLC character. Takami is a swimsuit model with no obvious martial arts background, but that doesn"t appear to lớn be stopping Koei Tecmo from shoehorning her into lớn a game she was never intended for.

The best part? As Twinfinite points out, the Japanese ads for Takamày openly acknowledge her Venus Vacation origins, but the North American ads leave it out. She"s just a "curious gal" that"s wearing a string đồ lót lớn a street fight.
