As was probably expected, Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet has been officially confirmed (by South East Asia distributor Active Boeki) to remain exclusive to Asian territories. Considering the original Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 for PS4 was planned to come out west back in 2016 but KOEI Tecmo backed down soon after a controversy happened over the under-dressed ladies flaunting around on New Zack Island.
However we have some good news with this. Active Boeki have also confirmed that English will be a fully supported language for the game along with Chinese and Japanese. So feel free to import the Switch or PS4 edition without much hassle from the likes of Play-Asia or Amazon.co.jp. Due to the region free nature of both consoles you’ll have no problems at all enjoying them.
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet will be releasing on March 20th for Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch, with the Switch receiving a free-to-play version later on in the year. Also keep in mind that the PS4 version will be censored, even though it’s an Asian release only.
