Tina Joins Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation

Dead or Alive Tina

Superstar pro wrestler and Dead or Alive franchise alum Tina Armstrong is going back to the island. Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation has added Tina as its newest playable character. As previously announced, Tina’s inclusion comes as part of the franchise’s 25th anniversary celebrations.

Koei Tecmo also included a trailer promoting Tina in Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation. You can view it here.

Tina Armstrong is an original Dead or Alive character. She has appeared in every main DOA game since 1996. She also appeared in the original Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball, the original spinoff that formed the template for Venus Vacation. She’s the daughter of DOA character Bass Armstrong. She continually enters DOA tournaments as a way to boost her celebrity profile. In DOA 5, she becomes a mentor to the character Mila.

Tina is the second mainline Dead or Alive character to be added to Venus Vacation post-release. Leifang joined the roster in 2018. Otherwise, the development team has mainly focused on adding new original characters like Koharu, Elise, and Nanami in the post-release period.

Players wishing to add Tina to their personal Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation rosters will need to roll the SSR Swimsuit “Dream Chaser (Tina)” on the in-game gacha system. To commemorate her addition, Koei Tecmo is also running a promotional campaign. The event awards players free V-Stone currency and gacha tickets.

Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation is available on PC via Steam, DMM, and Johren. It’s region-locked to Japan and Asia.
