Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation Gets Goodies, but Tamaki Is Gone Once More

Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation gain more swimsuits and goodies, but loses Tamaki once more, or at least the ability to unlock her.

Koei Tecmo and DMM are continuing their regular updates for the PC game Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation, with the latest being version 01.24.00.

This also marks half a year since the release of the game, and to celebrate a special login bonus will grant 500 V-stones to each player every day for a week.

A new event is also been added, titled “Kizuna Festival – The Bunny is Lonely” centered on the ongoing bonding between Luna and Ayane. As part of the event, players will be able to earn a special SR swimsuit and more goodies. Those who will get a good placement in the overall ranking will also get SSR vouchers (as usual, eight of them make a ticket for a guaranteed SSR swimsuit) and a special SSR accessory for Ayane.

Being a “Kizuna Festival” which is based on bonding (that’s what “Kizuna” means in Japanese), having many friends will help you, as using a friend’s character as a guest player will provide scoring bonuses.

As usual, we also get a new gacha, with a new SSR swimsuit for Luna and one for Ayane. Unfortunately, they have the usual ludicrous percentage of 0.38% each. So good luck with that.

Speaking of peculiar choices, new character Tamaki is gone once more after the expiration of her paid-only gacha. The SSR swimsuit that allows to unlock her still has not been added to the regular gacha, differently with what happened with Luna, meaning that there is no way to obtain her at all.

At this point, I do wonder whether DMM has simply decided to keep Tamaki fully exclusive to time-limited paid gacha, cutting out players unwilling to pay for the crazy-low chance to unlock her. We’ll have to wait and see about that.

In the meanwhile, below you can check out a few official pictures of the new swimsuits, and a video of the event’s intro.
