Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Developer Offers $1,000,000 to Koei Tecmo for U.S. Publishing License

on November 25, 2015 4:17 AM

Yesterday we learned that Koei Tecmo has no intention to publish Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 in the west, and that obviously caused malcontent among the fans.

Others saw the opportunity for business, and the folks at Huniepot, developers of the PC dating sim HuniePop and of the upcoming “camgirl tycoon” game HunieCam Studio took to Twitter to make an offer.

If you’re wondering how serious the offer is, at least according to Huniepot, it’s 100% so, and they also explained the rationale due to which Koei Tecmo should accept the offer.

Of course, the possibility for such a deal to actually happen is minimal. Koei Tecmo seems to want to reduce the visibility of the game as much as possible, and having others publish it would probably defeat the purpose, as the game would still retain its original branding.

Of course, it’s worth mentioning that by giving the response they did, the folks at Koei Tecmo already gave the game much more visibility than it had before.

It certainly would be nice for another publisher to take up the task of localizing the game, but I wouldn’t hold my hopes up if were you.
