Last summer, Koei Tecmo announced that they would be making a third entry in the Dead or Alive Xtreme series. While many fans were hoping to see a western release, Koei Tecmo announced in December that Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 would only be released in the Asian market. As a result, many decided to take matters into their own hands and purchase Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 through websites like Play-Asia. DualShockers recently reached out to Play-Asia to check out how sales of this game were doing, and the answer they received was overwhelmingly positive.
“I am able to confirm that we have broken all previous sales records for Play-Asia.com with the release of DOAX3. DOAX3 set our current record for pre-order copies sold of a single title from any region in the history of Play-Asia.com. Our previous record holder was the Japanese release of J-Stars Victory Vs. for the PS3 & PSVita.”
Koei Tecmo previously stated that potentially low sales for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 would be a factor for not releasing the game in the west, but these sales records clearly prove that prediction wrong.
