Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet is a new and improved version of the original game released back in 2016. Last week we announced that Leifang was added as the second new character, and now KOEI Tecmo Japan have released a new trailer for the game showing both her and Misaki – The first announced new character – kicking butt and having fun on New Zack Island.
You can see the trailer below:
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet releases March 20th for Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan. With the Switch version getting a free-to-play edition later in the year. Still no news on a western release but the game should hopefully be very import friendly as it’s original was in 2016.

It’s only been a couple days since the announcement for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet, and we already have ourselves a controversy along with Sony’s new Censorship policies. Though rather ridiculous, certain items (that are still present in the original version on PS4) have been removed only from the PS4 edition of the title – the Nintendo Switch edition isn’t effected.
Three items specifically have been mentioned to of been censored: Jet Black Fan – An item used to “blow” away certain clothes to show undergarments. Gold Fan – A golden version of above. Softening Gel – An item used to increase the jiggle physics velocity, enabling more easy loss of bra straps and such.
Though it may not seem like a big deal, but that is just it – is it that big of a deal that the game has to even remove these? How are we in today’s society so scared of some skin being shown but heavy violence is a-okay? Though that’s a rant for another time.
There has been no official word from Sony themselves on all these recent censorship issues hitting numerous “fan service” based games. There is also no real confirmation if any other items may be removed from the PS4 edition, though this is likely to be the only removals.
What are your thoughts on Sony’s new censorship policies? Are you fine with the removal of these items? Let us know in those comments!
Thanks to the recent Dead or Alive festival we have been given a bevy of news related to the franchise. With Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet being announced for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan, we now also have news that a free-to-play version of the game will be arriving on the Switch later on after the initial release.
The free-to-play version will play similarly to how Venus Vacation works. Alongside information of a Free-to-play version for Nintendo Switch arriving, there is also news on exclusive features for the Nintendo Switch edition. The main feature focused is “Soft 4D”, which is heavily reliant on the Soft Engine and the Nintendo Switch’s HD rumble functionality. The Switch edition also boasts 900p in TV mode, 720p in handheld and a locked 30 frames-per-second.
As for the Scarlet edition as a whole, it will offer various game tweaks such as being able to level up as an owner far easier, as well as an easier accumulation of the game’s currency Zack Money. Also alongside Misaki being a new character, there is yet another unannounced character that will be coming with the Scarlet edition (NiCO perhaps?). Scarlet will also include full VR support (requiring a “VR Passport”) just as the original game does on PS4.
Team Ninja have also confirmed that both Misaki and the unannounced character will be available as paid DLC for the original version of the game later after release.
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet will be releasing March 20th 2019 for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan. As we said before, it is unlikely it will receive a western release due to how the original game was cancelled, but it will be region free on both platforms with (hopefully) the same English support.
What are your thoughts on Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet going free-to-play as well on Nintendo Switch? Who do you think the unannounced character is? Let us know in those comments!
