When Koei-Tecmo said it wasn't getting a western release, play-asia effectively cornered the market on the game in the west. They have got to be happy about that. The twitter thing was just the icing on the cake.

I don't really play games, but...I think it's silly and stupid that this company didn't release this game because they're scared shitless of complaints. It's not like racier things haven't been imported before.

Nobody said there were a backlash for the game releasing in the west. Tecmo just didn't want to äcause a backlash, that's the reason for them not wanting to launch it in the west. I guess you could call it playing safe on their side since they didn't have the balls to get called out as being "sexist".


That wouldn't change anything. Assuming that's the real reason, which I strongly doubt, it just shows they had nothing to fear at all. The Facebook comment that made the statement has since been deleted, which doesn't help that argument either.


But while canceling the game in US/EU they linked to Play Asia that decided to #SJW and attack SJW. Play Asia's Twitter is ran by a international Ambassador team with people they think fit the role of social advertising. And I don't think there's any 15 year old that would fit the role....


Wow I....really didn't think I'd need to specify that little comment wasn't meant to be taken literally. The social media guy could be 10 or he could be 60 and it wouldn't make a difference; he's been acting like a child while representing his company. I don't think his superiors should just laugh that off.



I'm actually in a education for game development and we've talked a bit about costs to publish games.

One part of their decision to not release the game could be the one I mentioned above. However anyone can figure out that's not the whole reason as to why they made the choice to cancel the game in EU/US markets.

If we just take a look at the sale figures for the 2 previus games in the series, then you we can clearly see that the series have decreased in sales and therefore the amount of total revenue Tecmo earns from the games.

Then if we add in the fact that publishing and localization is expensive as fuck. When localizing a title the have to proper a new advertisement campaign for each and every country you choose to localize in, due to cultural differences in each country. Most countries understand English, so you don't have to translate the adverts in most of the cases. Just localize the ads to the individual markets in english. Then after the adverts you'll have to pay age rating boards in every country you want to release the game in, if you want it on consoles. Like this game only releases on, since Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo doesn't allow unrated games. In the US then there's just one age rating board (ESPB), but in Europe there's a lot of diff once with the EU's own PEGI being the biggest one. Therefore it would be expensive to have a western release. This might have been the major reason as to why it didn't release over here.

Then Tecmo might not even have been able to afford the release like you mentioned thanks to poor sales. And if that's the reason, then they might have found blaming it on Female treatment in games in western countries as an excuse to dodge the bullet that they would've received from both customers and investors if they said their not able to afford the release.

And then we know what happened after that with Play Asia taking on SJW and a war between SJW and Play Asia starter, where Play Asia profited like crazy

I haven't laughed as hard of a twitter fight as I have over this. the SJW crowd is now claiming that Play Asia is doxxing them and doing all kinds of REALLY EVIL SHIT when all the twitter is doing is shitting out memes and making me lol hard.

I wouldn't be interested in the Doa spin-offs but nothing should stop Tecmo Koei from releasing the game over in the US and Europe.

Here's the part I don't get: the Dead or Alive franchise has already been subjected to criticism for objectification, so all that would really happen if they released this latest installment is that they'd continue to face criticism. What's more, Dead or Alive isn't the only fighting game franchise subjected to this sort of criticism, and several of its competitor franchises are performing as well or better as far as I'm aware. So what is there to be afraid of that isn't already out there?

Also, while I think it's fine to be critical of media I don't consider the franchise to be genuinely exploitative. Even if I did say it was exploitative I'd also say that any exploitation one might point to in Dead or Alive doesn't seem like a serious enough problem to warrant a boycott (though people should feel free to have a boycott if they want). Honestly, the game has a decent enough amount of challenge and skill involved to be worth playing, and accommodations for those who aren't comfortable with the sexiness have already been made. You can wear less skimpy costumes if you want, so if the sexy ones really bother you that much you can pretty much avoid them entirely in multiplayer matches. Besides, a while ago I saw an interesting video released by the Game Theorists that explains how sexy costumes can actually be a useful and proactive element in gameplay and strategy, so they're not just cheesecake if you look closely enough.

So the takeaway is this: I don't see what the company actually has to be afraid of (they already face the exact criticism they're saying they fear inciting) and I don't see the criticism that is lobbed against the game to be particularly strong.

I wish I had the strength to care, about DoA, about whiny SJW's, and about whiny people whining about whiny SJW's.

Now I just have to buy the game!

In fact, everyone, EVERYONE should buy the game right now at play-asia, to show every game publisher out there that these stupid bitches's opinions have absolutely no importance and should never be listened too!

NO QUARTER! If we want to play ecchi games, we will do so! For the past years nothing has changed due to this stupid criticism, and we sure as hell should not tolerate any change now!

BUY BUY BUY!
