Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 players had long given up on the release of the PlayStation VR component of the game for the Asian version, that includes English subtitles (and as such is the one that has been purchased by most western fans).
At long last, today Koei Tecmo announced that the feature is finally coming tomorrow, August 3rd. While there have been several months of delay since the release for the Japanese version of the game in January, it’s finally coming.
Owners of the game will be able to download the “VR Pass” for free tomorrow, after updating the game to the 1.16 version. To do that, you’ll need to launch the game, select “VR Paradise,” and you will be prompted to connect to the PlayStation Store, where you’ll find the free “VR Pass” DLC. At that point, you can download it, and you’re set.
The VR Pass will be available for free only until August 31st. If you don’t get in time, you’ll have to pay for it.
Those that have the free version of the game will also be able to purchase the VR Pass in combo with the license to play with Marie Rose and Honoka.
Interestingly, the VR Paradise feature is enhanced for those who play it on PS4 Pro, but this does not extend to the rest of the game.
