@_brandNEWdays @KoeiTecmoUS Kudos to the TN’s CM for being honest. But if you really want it, you can import EN ver. https://t.co/efYcEeGZFo

Not too long ago Koei Tecmo had said they would bring Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 West if they felt the demand was high enough. Now it appears that has changed. A fan asked their PR Facebook account if the company had any plans to bring the game West to which the representative running the account at the time responded:
“We do not bring DOAX3 to the west and won’t have any plan change in the future. Thank you for asking.“
The rep then went on to say:
“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.“
These two statements very much contrast each other. You can check out the entire Facebook Thread here. We’ll keep you updated as this story develops further.
The game is currently available for import in English from Play-Asia.
