Over the past few years we have seen a boon in niche Japanese games being localized for Western release but we have also seen the rise of some annoying censorship issues. Some of the censorship does make a bit of sense while others are absolutely ridiculous and a few titles have pushed the limit so far that they weren’t even touched for Western release. As such with Koei Tecmo working on bringing Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita the company has been rather mum about releasing the game in the West, with only the passing mention of a “modified” version if it ever is released.
As such many have turned directly to importing Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 and there is some good news for those that do. According to Koei Tecmo and Play-Asia, the Asian version of the game will support English subtitles when it is released on February 25, 2016, allowing for a far smaller barrier for those who don’t want to wait to see how the title may be handled, if at all, by localization.
