To the surprise of absolutely no one, Tecmo Koei is still adding new Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 DLC sexy costumes. Considering that the game was made to capitalize on the sex appeal of the series’ female fighters, this was inevitable. Some fans might defend the Volleyball mechanics, but even they’ll admit that this isn’t the reason they bought the title.
Interestingly enough, Siliconera said that the latest batch of DLC will only available for a limited time, which is an odd move. These sexy costumes have been available since December 29 and will be downloadable till January 11. Oddly enough, the sexy costumes aren’t holiday-themed, so one has to wonder why it’s limited.
The Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 DLC has sexy variations of an officer uniform and two nurse outfits, which are typical but nicely designed. In addition to that, there are also a number of new swimsuits that the player can outfit their favorites. Overall, these should make fans of the game very happy, in more ways than one.
Some of the costumes have color changes, so there is some variety in the game’s sexy outfits. It’s not that much variety, like say in a proper Dead or Alive fighting game, but it will please fans. One has to wonder if the DLC is worth it since the game is already filled with sexy outfits.
Still No US Release
Despite the love for the series, there are still no plans for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 to come to the US. While Japanese and Asian fans will definitely enjoy the Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 DLC, those in the US and UK won’t be able to get them. It’s a shame, but it’s not like this is a game that players are craving for.
Western fans can always enjoy Dead or Alive 5, since the game’s ladies are still quite attractive in it. The game has also received good reviews, so players can actually enjoy the fighter and not feel bad about liking it. Granted, they shouldn’t have to feel bad for liking Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, but it’s easy to see why some might.
