Koei Tecmo announced that they're not releasing Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3 to America or PAL Regions (AKA Asia only), since then, there's been debate, Condescending Clickbait videos and articles from self important journalists who are trying to cash in to the story (DO I EVEN HAVE TO NAME NAMES!!!!!), and feminist backlash to Play Asia. I'm here to tell everyone to STFU because we lose either way!!!!!
The reason the game isn't getting released is quoted in the Koei Tecmo Official Page...
We do not bring DOAX3 to the west and won’t have any plan change in the future. Thank you for asking.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.
Yes, this is seriously how they said it... I'll give you a minute to facepalm. I'm not going into SJW Accusations, because there has to be a bigger reason to not release the game. Basically they don't want to get any backlash from overly sensitive would-be so-called professionals in the media, even though that is the whole point of the DOA Series, Especially the Xtreme Games. I'm a fan of the DOA Series, but not the Xtreme games, juts because other than the ugly ass fanservice (except for the first game), there's no there in there. Just because a game features fanservice as the whole point doesn't mean you can deny the game the right to exist. If you don't want to sexualize the DOA Girls, DON'T FREAKING SEXULAIZE THEM!!!!! About anything can be sexualized if you wanted to, even Body parts everyone has. Case in point, breasts, asses, penises, and vaginas, not everyone sexualizes them, and if you don't want to sexualize them, DON'T!!!!!!!!!! Sexualization occurs in the Mind, heck Some people Sexualize something as weird as game controllers. Also Tecmo is just as guilty as everyone else. They (Possibly, more on that later) gave into the entitled feminists and turned into cowards. Don't give a mouse a cookie, it's going to want a Glass of Milk. Grow some thicker skin, and stop expecting others to fight your battles for you. Become like Rockstar (the Makers of Grand Theft Auto), and man up. Hell, I;m just as guilty as you are when it comes to dealing with criticism. If this is true, then this presents a dangerous future for all games to come. As Kyle from South Park once said "Either it's all Okay, or none of it is"...
There's also an alternative explanation, that it might not sell well. I can see that, since the games sold less and less each game in the US, I really can't blame the consumer, since the games aren't really that good to put it bluntly. But after the whole ordeal, the game increased demand and gotten a lot of gamers curious. This is like the games equivalent to The Interview movie from last year, only with 100% less connection to North Korea, so Koei Tecmo Might as well bite the bullet and release it worldwide.
Now to us, the gamers. While this is becoming less and less the case each day, It's still pretty true. Games taste are different all over the world. For example, dating sims are popular in Japan, but a majority of the West never really cared, Unless your name is HuniePop (speaking of, I really should do a gaming bits on the game for Valentine's Day), or the dozens of them on steam. FPS Games aren't really popular in Japan. because a majority of them are developed by the Western studios, and we all know how well Western companies do in the Japanese game market *Cough* XBOX One *Cough*... None of that will matter when all consoles become region free and import games become easier to get. Oh by the way, Threatening Anita Sarkeesian, Zoe Quinn, Brianna Wu, Bob Chipman, among others, make their actions seem more justified. I mean I don't like those people (with the exception of Moviebob, who's my main inspiration for doing this), but threats aren't really justified for any of them.
So yeah, this is a real damned if you do, damned if you don't situation, and I have no real solution for this, sorry...
