Dead or Alive Festival has just happened and during it KOEI Tecmo announced a bunch of new things for the Dead or Alive franchise. Included in that was an announcement for an expanded version of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 for both Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet has everything the original Xtreme 3 offered and has so far announced to be including some content that arrived in the Free-to-play edition Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation, such as the new character Misaki.
The game will be releasing March 20th 2019, though it is very unlikely it will make it’s way to the western market. After the big media drama back in 2016 where KOEI Tecmo ended up pulling the planned release of the PS4 and Vita title, we can’t expect to see it suddenly arrive again now. However a good thing to note is the original PS4 Asian edition has fully supported English language, and if that continues to the Scarlet edition you’ll be able to import it no problem thanks to both PS4 and Switch being region free!
What are your thoughts on a newer version of Dead or Alive’s “sports” title Xtreme 3 coming out? Are you glad to see it come to Switch over Vita? Let us know in those comments!
