The hottest fighters in video games are once again donning swimsuits and hitting the sands for volleyball matches. Announced earlier this month, Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 received its first screenshots, highlighting the gorgeous island setting as well as the curvy figure of series mainstay, Kasumi. Though Kasumi is probably a shoo-in, her inclusion actually is not a guarantee; the nine characters that will launch with the game are actually being decided via a poll on the Japanese PlayStation Store. Koei Tecmo released 15 character themes on August 20 on the Japanese PlayStation Store, and the nine most-downloaded characters featured on those themes will be the roster of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3.
The game will be released in two versions: Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Fortune will launch for PlayStation 4 and Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Venus will release on PlayStation Vita. There are currently no plans for a Western release for either version of the game, but if demand is high enough, Koei Tecmo will localize the game. If you are interested in seeing Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 in the West, let them know! In the meantime, check out the screenshots below:
