In a rather funny turn of events, the Koei Tecmo just released a “mystery Venus” on the English Steam version of its free to play game Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation.
Veterans of the game will likely understand rather easily why this is so hilarious.
Koei Tecmo is doing things exactly the way it did with the Japanese version of the game, adding this new girl without announcing her name or even showing her face.
The issue with this hush operation is that the English version is a year behind the Japanese version, so everyone who has paid even cursory attention to the news knows very well that the mysterious girl is Nagisa.
If by any chance you’re unfamiliar with her, she’s Misaki’s older sister. While Misaki is sweet and naive, Nagisa is basically the tsundere prototype, super-abrasive but quick to blush after she warms up.
You can also watch the super-mysterious tease in the dedicated teaser trailer.
Unfortunately, if you play the English version of the game, you won’t be able to get Nagisa immediately unless you’re willing to delve into the paid-only gacha with abysmal SSR percentages.
If the game keeps following the pace held by the Japanese version, you won’t be able to get her for free until March. In Japan, she was released in December 2018 and her first appearance in a non-paid-only gacha happened in April 2019.
That’s a long wait indeed, but this is the nature of the Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation beast.
You can take heart with the fact that Nagisa’s introduction means that Leifang should become withouth spending real money soon enough.
