[UPDATED]Leifang Is Included in Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet; Misaki’s Sister’s Nagisa Revealed in Venus Vacation
Koei Tecmo revealed Leifang is included in Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet for PlayStation 4 and Switch; Trailer for Nagisa's reveal in Venus Vacation.
Update: Koei Tecmo released a new trailer for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet showcasing Leifang and Misaki, you can find it at the end of the article. The gallery has also been updated with screenshots of Leifang and Misaki each wearing one of the two “prohibited swimsuits” costumes found in early print copies of the game.
Famitsu published a short teaser video for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet, revealing Leifang is included in the game. Leifang wasn’t included in Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune for PlayStation 4 nor Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Venus on PlayStation Vita. She is, however, in the DMM browser game, Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation.
Koei Tecmo had previously teased that Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet has another unannounced character. This turned out to be Leifang. Her inclusion might be a good argument to get the game for her fans. In my case though, rather than buying Scarlet on PlayStation 4 or Switch, I’d say it’s a much better choice to wait for the free trial version that will be out exclusively for Nintendo Switch, it’ll release a bit shortly after the game.
Here’s the full list of differences between Dead or Alive Xtreme 3’s versions. The main appeal of the Scarlet PlayStation 4 version is exclusive to PlayStation 4 Pro owners: when using VR Mode on PlayStation 4 Pro, the girls’ facial expressions will be greatly improved compared to other game modes and other versions. On the other hand, the PlayStation 4 version of Scarlet removes some features included in Fortune, like swimsuits becoming slightly loose. This could be related to Sony Interactive Entertainment’s new policy. I’d like to write about this one day, in order to explain my point of view on the matter, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever have the time to do it.
Meanwhile, Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation added another brand new character in late December, Nagisa. She’s the fifth new Dead or Alive character first appearing in Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation, following the shy Misaki (who’s also included in Scarlet), the intellectual and goofy Luna, the sultry Tamaki, and Fiona the princess.
Nagisa, voiced by Maaya Uchida, is a 20 years old theater actress and the older sister of Misaki. Nagisa is 1m56, her blood type is A and her three sizes are 79-54-87. She’s very protective of her little sister and acts coldly towards the owner because of the apparent affection they get from Misaki. Nagisa’s birthday is on May 5 and her favorite types of food are soufflé pancakes and strawberry shakes. Her favorite color is white. She hates eating green peppers and hates the owner too. She also likes to watch swimming videos.
Nagisa was first revealed during a live stream on December 19, featuring Nyotengu’s voice actress Akemi Satou, Fiona’s voice actress Kaede Hondo and Marie Rose’s voice actress Mai Aizawa. To quote them: “Nagisa is like an overprotective father who thinks his daughter’s fiance isn’t good enough for her”. You can watch the stream here, and it shows Nagisa gameplay from 45:25 to 56:30.
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet‘s first trailer can be found here. You can find Leifang’s teaser video below, along with the Venus Vacation trailer introducing Nagisa, and the trailer for the current New Year event in the game. Keep in mind we’re talking about the Dead or Alive Xtreme series here, so you might not want to watch these trailers at work.
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet releases in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on March 20. A trial version for the game will launch slightly later on Switch. Meanwhile, Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation is available for PC. If you’d like to try the game, we’ve previously written a guide on how to get into it. The guide is a bit old and could use an update, but it’s still quite useful if you have absolutely no idea where to start.
