Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet was announced for PS4 and Switch as a new version of the Dead or Alive spinoff game, and Koei Tecmo shared additional details on what’s new.
The new version of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 features all nine girls of the base game in Kasumi, Momiji, Hitomi, Helena, Marie Rose, Honoka, Nyotengu, Kokoro, and Ayane. It adds Misaki from Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation as a new character and there will be one more new character revealed later, for a total of eleven girls in Scarlet.
New character: Misaki
The Nintendo Switch version of the game introduces a new “Soft 4D” engine that combines the Soft Engine and Nintendo Switch HD Rumble. Koei Tecmo says it aims to provide the feeling of various jiggles to go with the visuals of the Soft Engine before your eyes. The developers say players will get to experience a new kind of jiggling experience with the left and right Joy-Cons having their own movement and vibrations.
As for the PlayStation 4 version of the game, it will have VR support. Koei Tecmo says PS4 players will get to look forward to exciting experiences of being closer to the girls in VR Paradise with the PS4’s high graphics. It’s also worth noting that several features won’t be included in the PS4 version. These include the Jet Black Fans and Gold Fans that are used to loosen outfits, and the soft skincare items. Some paid DLC costumes will also be omitted on PS4.
