It was announced earlier this year that Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 was being developed specifically for Asian regions, but the company finally revealed why to Crave Online.
“Do you know many issues happening in video game industry with regard to how to treat female in video game industry? We do not want to talk those things here. But certainly we have gone through in last year or two to come to our decision. Thank you.” The response was given after Crave Online reached out regarding a Facebook post. ”
“We do not bring DOAX3 to the west and won’t have any plan change in the future. Thank you for asking.”
There is no doubt that Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 has an interesting portrayal of women, which the western world would immediately take to as being sexist. Regardless, the comment chain on Facebook has pleaded that the game be released in North America and Europe. One comment reads, “This is not fair, SJW are never going to buy your games, no matter what you do, we, the gamers are the ones that buy your games and products, I bought Dead or Alive 5 two times, one in Xbox 360 and the other in Xbox One, please bring this game to america, I don’t care what Kotaku and Polygon have to say, reviews are obsolete anyway, or at least give us the option to buy the DLC, more than ever, we need Political Incorrect games, just look the copies that GTAV or Hatred sold, SJW do not buy games.“
