No Steamy Shower Scene In The 3rd Birthday

By Spencer . August 13, 2010 . 11:09am

A hot topic among fans and even gaming magazines, according to director Hajime Tabata, is a shower scene for The 3rd Birthday. Parasite Eve II had a movie of Aya taking a shower and ever since The 3rd Birthday was announced people asked if the PSP game would have one too.



Fans hoped The 3rd Birthday would have a similar movie using the latest technology. “I’m afraid to say it won’t have one,” Tabata said, responding to questions about a shower scene for The 3rd Birthday, on Twitter. Why not? The story doesn’t have a situation to put the shower scene in.

  • oh cmon… the girl needs a shower… to stay “pure” and “clean”… xDD

    • tubers

      True! Sounds like an excuse when they said a shower scene can’t fit in the story. Did PE2 shower scene fit in the story? WTF

      Wow. So they weren’t expecting much from PE fans so decided to do whatever with an Aya Brea game? This isn’t looking too good.

      Now, show us the “abilities” clips since she wont be using PE in this game. Don’t tell me u scrapped that idea SE?

  • Well, im not really into CG, but this scene’s graphics were pretty smooth

    • Ereek

      Yeah. I never really cared much about the scene, but PE2’s CG was quite good. Even better when you realize when it came out.

  • urbanscholar

    Considering we have the clothes damage and what not, I’d say she’s amply sexualized in the game.

    who cares. go beat off to something else.

  • Scallion

    Good to know that fellow fans have their priorities in place. I mean, it’s not as if I really cared about changes to the core gameplay. I reaaaaally wanted to know why she was wearing a wedding dress, and all of the fascinating ways you can rip her clothes! ^^

    Stuff like this irritates the hell out of me. Is there some sort of machine dedicated to keeping the mouth-breathing, basement-dwelling geek stereotype alive? And if there are real people telling the game’s staff these things, I’d hate to think that they are the ones who are shaping the game when they’re hauled in for focus group testing or have their posts acknowledged on forums.

    If that’s the case, then it explains a lot.

    Well that sucks! What a tease!

    I don’t recall ever actually playing any of the Parasite Eve games, regardless of the number of times I came by a trailer, etc in my youth and my fascination with it. So maybe it’s because I don’t understand the scene, but I don’t entirely see how she had to be in the shower for that scene either, if it’s because ‘The story doesn’t have a situation to put the shower scene in’. But I suppose a shower scene fits even less in 3rd Birthday.

    Either way, I’m just thinking the same thing as some of the other commenters. You know, the shower scene is so much more important to gameplay, and way to keep the mouth-breather geek stereotype alive.

    But I guess her clothes are already taking damage, so we get to see some skin out of her.

    This is good to hear actually, the second game having this was quite shocking at the time but if they put in another one it would feel forced and tacked on (like the DOA Xtreme games)

  • xavier axol

    Oh no! This is an outrage. how could they do this to me, after all the excitement with the clothes ripping apart thing, and the body transfer thing, and aya sweat lovely face expression from the trailer. Why! Why!
    They better make it up to me, with some kind of erotic scene or else….

  • Eh. They couldn’t come up with a better shower scene than Heavy Rain’s anyway.

    • Aoshi00

      lol, true, I was going to mention Heavy Rain. Madison’s face looks a bit off, but her model was very hot, her shower scene was great.

      Come on, you have Ikkitousen cloth ripping but no obligatory shower scene, boo.. I still remember the smoking Chun-Li shower scene in she SF animated movie :)

      • RAVENKam

        Chun-Li shower scene (SF animated movie) = best shower scene ever.

      • MGSBigBoss

        ikkitousen was actually a pretty good anime, i thought it was gonna be horrible but i can watch it, i believe there are 2 seasons? ive watched all the episodes ryofu was the best ^_^

  • xxx128

    No shower, no buy :O

  • Day2Day

    The thing I like about their reason for not putting the scene in is that it implies that if there were a situation where they COULD have put in a shower scene, they happily would have…

  • ShinNoKami

    I don’t know why the shower scene is such a big deal to everyone. o.o I find Aya hot like the next person but… seriously. :/
