There’s a new video compilation featuring all the pole dancing routines from Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 on the PS4. Despite the teaser trailers hinting at it being a risque, stripper-style setup, the pole dancing is actually rather tame and will disappoint those looking for something… titillating.
Now don’t get me wrong, the outfits the girls are in easily make the video NSFW. However, if you’re expecting lots of jiggle, bounce and tissue-tearing material, you may have to look elsewhere. In fact, the Soft Engine 2.0 looks rather tame in the sequences below.
You can check out the 15 minute video featuring Marie Rose, Honoka, Ayane, Kokoro, Nyotengu, Hitomi and Kasumi, courtesy of YouTuber Fighterspottv.
[Update:] It appears the above video was flagged for copyrighted content. There are additional individual videos below featuring each of the girls in the game.
Some girls seem to get more time than others, and it’s obvious there’s a preference for certain outfits over others, but all in all you get to see the same routine, over, and over, and over again.
I suppose if the routine didn’t look so stiff it may have been more appealing… and also comes across as if the mo-cap actor/actress was embarrassed? The stilted animations and lack of any sort of jiggle or geometry affectation made the whole thing look like typical uncanny valley stuff. Had they added more bounce and indentation, and maybe put some more oomph into the motions, it may have been more sensual.
As it stands, the pole dancing is actually a lot less bouncy and tantalizing than the other beach mini-games, which seems crazy when you think about it.
In fact, the more I see of the game the more it looks like it could have nearly escaped with the ‘T’ for Teen rating. There’s some fan-service obviously, but the jiggling is no where near as in-your-face as Senran Kagura Estival Versus. Marvelous and Tamsoft at least really pushed the ‘M’ rating in Estival Versus, showcasing plenty of skin and physics-based bounciness.
By comparison, Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is… tame.
If it weren’t for so much sociopolitical noise surrounding Koei’s outing they might have even been able to escape with a lower rating. But getting the Cero ‘D’ rating for those ages 17 and up is ludicrous. So far I just haven’t seen anything in the game to justify that kind of rating.
Realistically, people should be complaining that for all the hoopla about “sexism” and “misogyny”, the Dead or Alive Xtreme series is more about the celebration of female femininity in tropical settings. Congrats to the SJWs for not recognizing that a non-violent game about girls having fun, dressing up and wearing nice things isn’t coming to the West because SJWs complain first and think never.
If you want Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, you will have to either import a physical copy or download the Asia version from the PSN store. If you’re looking for more titillating fan-service, I would probably suggest checking out Marvelous Entertainment’s Senran Kagura Estival Versus.
