DMM’s Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation was updated with a brand new nurse-type character, Sayuri. She joins the ever-growing roster of bountifully gorgeous women that occupy the game’s fan-service laden features, and she’s also a stark reminder of the difference in design philosophy between Eastern and Western game developers.
Sayuri heads to the island with the intention of being a nurse, but ends up joining the cadre of girls as a volleyball-playing gravure idol while donning a bevy of bewitching bikinis.
You can see Sayuri in action below in her debut trailer, courtesy of Koei Tecmo.
As outlined by Siliconera, Sayuri is voiced by the lovely Azumi Waki.
The entire trailer is themed around making Sayuri’s personality come across as fetching, innocent, and demure as possible.
Despite the risque bikini attire, they give her a very comforting and maternal vibe, something completely missing from almost every single Western-made video game in the AA and AAA market these days.
In fact, you can count on one hand how often you come across a actual attractive female character who also has the qualities of someone who you would say is wife-worthy material.
Most Western-made games focus on females who act more masculine than men, are oftentimes butch lesbians, and rarely have any sort of redeeming feminine qualities about them. In other words, there’s nothing attractive about the their character either from a visual or narrative standpoint.
To make matters worse is that in nearly every single game you have to constantly find yourself being bombarded with these hideous looking females that constantly remind you how empowered they are and how much they don’t need a man. Not that any man would want most of them anyway.
I mean, sure, there is the one-off case of Overwatch being a recent game that’s the poster-child of a Western-made game with sexy female characters, but half of them seem to be dragged through the alphabet soup or looking like they came out of a dollar-a-day pamphlet to feed the children.
Anyway, Sayuri is a great reminder to support developers who appreciate feminine beauty and ignore the ones that don’t.
You can learn more about Sayuri and her bust and waist size by visiting the official Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation website.
Expect to see her make an appearance in the region-locked version of the game on Steam. If you don’t know how to access the region-locked version of the game on Steam, there’s a workaround guide available.
