Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Without Western Release
On a Facebook page frequented by employees of developer KOEI Tecmo, a reason was given why the game Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 would only be released in Asian territories and not in Western markets like the predecessors. It has to do with activists for women rights.
When the 2nd game was released some years ago, there were already protests that the game was sexist but young women in bikinis were no reason to ban it (e.g. the German rating was "12"). And while the current installment surely wouldn't have problems with the ratings boards either, community has formed strong fractions in recent years that speak out strongly against possibly sexist and other unwanted aspects. They rather promote censorship or bans than hold freedom of speech and art in high regard. And these groups are the ones that KOEI Tecmo doesn't want to confront and thus decided not to release the game outside of Asia.
On December 1st, the publisher issued an official statement in which they distanced themselves somewhat from the text on Facebook but stuck to the decision not to release the game anywhere else.
