Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) PlayStation VR is due to launch worldwide in a little over two weeks time, and wherever you’re based there’s going to be plenty of videogames available on day one to play. But for Japanese gamers who may have been looking forward to the new edition of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Fortune from Koei Tecmo it seems they’ll have to wait.
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Fortune was originally scheduled to launch the same day as PlayStation VR – 13th October – but a recent report by Japanese gaming site Famitsu now states that date has slipped. There’s no details from Koei Tecmo on why Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Fortune has been delayed or when it may now see a release, just that a new announcement should be coming soon.
It won’t worry any western gamers as the developer has previously stated that the title won’t see a global release, saying back in 2015: “DEAD OR ALIVE Xtreme 3 remains in development and is still planned for release in Japan and Asia only.”
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is a beachball title that features characters from the main series. This spin-off franchise to the beat-em-up has generally been a controversial one due to the depiction of women in beachwear, and this latest instalment is no different. Last month VRFocus reported on new gameplay details being revealed, including a brand new gameplay mode called ‘Event Paradise’. The cast of the videogame take part in a photo shoot in which the player is the photographer. If the shoot is successful then players are rewarded with special items.
VRFocus will continue to keep you updated with all the latest details on Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Fortune as Koei Tecmo makes further announcements.
