Koei Tecmo has released the official PlayStation VR update for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3… for the Japanese version of the game. According to gamers and a Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 news source, the Asia version with the English subtitles does not have the PSVR update enabled… yet.

Gamers were asking about the Asia/English version but Koei Tecmo has been mum about enabling VR for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 fans outside of Japan… understandably so.
When they first demoed the VR update for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, SJWs that run enthusiast media outlets in the West claimed that the VR update promoted “virtual sexual assault”.
Following the controversy, Koei Tecmo announced that they were delaying the VR update for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3. Silently and sneakily they rolled out the update exclusively for Japanese gamers. The update for the PS4 version of the game was accompanied by a short trailer that Sankaku Complex picked up, indicating that starting today, January 24th, Japanese gamers could receive the free VR update and use their PlayStation VR headset with the title.
The update can only be used with a special mode that allows gamers to interact with each of the girls in virtual reality, complete with physics-based feedback on their supple Soft Engine 2.0 bodies.
Previously the media had an absolute fit that Play-Asia allowed gamers to import the title from Japan. They attacked and threatened the stop supporting the company in response. Despite receiving the empty threats, real gamers went on to pre-order and import Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, making it the fastest and top selling import title on Play-Asia, breaking records for the company, as reported by DualShockers.
The media and SJWs tried lying saying that Koei Tecmo didn’t want to release Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 in the West due to potentially having no market to sell to and having low sales due to the historical sales of previous Dead or Alive Xtreme titles. However, Koei regularly releases niche titles for extremely tiny markets, such as their English localization of the Nobunaga Ambition series, which has only sold 25,000 copies since releasing back in September of 2015, according to Steam Spy.
Koei Tecmo had originally mentioned that the militant feminists in the West made a release of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 untenable. Back in November, 2014, a Koei representative mentioned on Facebook…
“We do not bring DOAX3 to the west and won’t have any plan change in the future. Thank you for asking.”
“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 fact that all the major mainstream and enthusiast media outlets adopt SJW and regressive leftist ideologies, Koei Tecmo simply didn’t want to have to deal with being attacked for being misogynistic and sexist by releasing the game in the West.
Nevertheless, despite withholding the game’s release outside of Asia, the SJWs in media still attacked Koei Tecmo, calling them “sexist” and misogynistic, as evidenced with an article recently published in December of 2016 by Lakebit.
There’s no date or information on whether or not the Asia/English version of the VR update for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 will be made available.
