Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet is scheduled to release in early 2019 for the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 4. We know that the PS4 version of the game will be censored, and the Nintendo Switch version of the game will be uncensored and come with 4D jiggle physics.
According to a listing over on Play-Asia.com, it’s also been recently confirmed that the PS4 version of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet will support English subtitles for the release in Asia.
You get the best of both worlds, considering that the voiceovers are in Japanese, but the subtitles and menus are in English.
This means subs win out over dubs, just like with the original release of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 for the PS4 back in early 2016.
The big difference this time around is that the definitive edition (minus the 30fps limitation) will be the Nintendo Switch version, which will not only come with the exclusive 4D jiggle physics functionality that utilizes the HD rumble feature on the Joy-Cons while you fondle and jiggle the boobs of the girls wearing skimpy bikinis, but it will also feature many of the swimsuits from the DMM version of Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation, Misaki and her sister Nagisa, along with the special golden and black fans.
While the PS4 version will receive all of the same characters as the Switch version, it will not have the golden or black fans, nor will it feature all of the bikinis from the DMM version of the game. So while you will be able to play the game at 1080p and 60fps, you’ll be losing out on a lot of features due to Sony’s censorship policies.
Right now we still don’t have confirmation on whether the Switch version will contain English subtitlesor not. Play-Asia has yet to receive information on that version of the game, but it has been confirmed that the Switch version will have multi-language support, we just don’t know which languages, yet.
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet will release in Japan and Asia starting March 20th, 2019. Both the Switch and PS4 versions of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet are available for pre-order over on Play-Asia.com.
[Update:] Richard Pell contacted Play-Asia about the Switch version’s language options, and received a response indicating that the company will check into whether or not it will support English subtitles.
