Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation Gets Screenshots and PC Requirements; Will Use Soft Engine 2.0

PC gamers will finally be able to enjoy the flavor of Dead or Alive Xtreme with Venus Vacation, with added gacha and a new character.

Today Koei Tecmo released a new batch of screenshots and information about Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation, that will be released in Japan for PC this year through the DMM Games platform.

We get to see the equipment screen that will let us equip the girls with swimsuit coming with different specs and abilities, a beach volley match that also features the new character Misaki. As the match goes on, the girls’ stamina will decrease, so having high stamina is crucial in long matches. Stats like power and technique, alongside skill bonuses, will influence the outcome of attacks and defense.

The gacha system at the base of the free-to-play business model of the game will let you draw new swimsuits, and the scene you’ll see depends on the rarity and attributes. If you get a SR bikini, there will be only one scene, but SSR swimsuits will show two.

In the screenshots you can see scenes with Marie Rose, Honoka and Hitomi.

Interestingly, swimsuit “malfunctions” are also included with certain combinations of characters and swimsuits. For instance the SSR swimsuit “Minuet” for Marie Rose and the SSR bikini “Libra” for Hitomi will show malfunction scenes.

Pre-registration also begins today, offering a plethora of free items. You can find it here, but you’ll need a DMM account (in Japanese) to do it.

Last, but not least, we find out the minimum and recommended PC system requirements. Interestingly, if you match the recommended specs the game will use the Soft Engine 2.0 (which is the same used on Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 for PS 4). If you have a weaker PC that only matches the minimum specs, the game will use the Soft Engine Lite (originally used on Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 for PS Vita).

You can read those at the bottom of the post, and find the new screenshots below.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
