DoA Extreme 3 Not Coming To US, Koei Tecmo Explains
If you've been following along with video game news, you probably know all about the Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 fiasco.
As it turns out, the game will not be released in North America or Europe, much to the chagrin of franchise fans. The reason? Well, many are saying that it's not coming due to heightened sensitivity to sexism in gaming, particularly in regards to females. Okay, let's face it- exclusively in regards to females.
At any rate, through all the speculation, Koei Tecmo has released an official statement on the matter via Twitter and it doesn't explain much. The company merely distances itself from comments made by an employee on Facebook, and adds that they only want to deliver "the best fighting entertainment to our fans around the world, while consciously respecting and strategizing to support the different global audiences the Dead or Alive franchise lends itself to."
As of now, Xtreme 3 is only releasing in Japan and Asia for PlayStation 4 and Vita in February 2016. The game features a suntanning option and of course, various swimsuits for the women. And really, I have no comment as we're reaching a point where comments and opinions are about as heavily policed by the growing PC Gestapo as our smartphone activities.
