Reports say everyone’s favorite beach volleyball title from Koei Tecmo won’t be making its way to western shelves anytime soon.

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is being withheld from Westerners due to it’s  representations of the female body. With a history, and even so much as a focus on their infamous “jiggle physics”, DOA Xtreme 3 won’t be coming our way despite a strong interest from dedicated fans. As a direct result of the Western focus on misogyny, Team Ninja issued the following statement:

“We do not bring DOAX3 to the west and won’t have any plan change in the future.”

While this doesn’t detail much as to why, Team Ninja elaborated in a follow-up.

“Do you know many issues happening in video game industry with regard to how to treat female in video game industry? We do not want to talk those things here. But certainly we have gone through in last year or two to come to our decision. Thank you.”

We at PowerLeveled are picking up the pieces after this tragedy and hope for better days in the beach volleyball genre.
