A free version of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is available to download now on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Asia.
The beach volley title using the female characters from the Dead or Alive series was only launched in Asia after “Internet outrage” threw the spotlight on the game once again. Koei Tecmo said
Do you know many issues happening in video game industry with regard to how to treat female in video game industry? We do not want to talk those things here. But certainly we have gone through in last year or two to come to our decision. Thank you.
The stance is usual since North America was the games largest market in the past and caused for many online to call it a case of self censorship.
You can download the free version of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 from the following PlayStation Store locations:
Hong Kong PlayStation Store
Japan PlayStation Store
If you don’t have an account at either of those locations or you want a disc version of the non-free to play variant then you can import it through Play Asia.
