Today is January 23, which means that Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation is celebrating the birthday of one of the most iconic DOA heroines, Kasumi.
Of course, this is is a free-to-play game with optional microtransactions, so the game is celebrating Kasumi’s day with… more microtransactions. You didn’t see this coming did you?
If you’re still wondering what the celebration entails, you likely missed all the previous birthday. Ultimately it isn’t very different from a real birthday. It involves players possibly spending a whole lot of real money in a paid-only gacha to try and get a new SSR costume with extremely low chances of success.
To be more specific you have to throw your hard-earned money at the game hoping to hit that 1.1%, which will require a whole lot of luck. If you’re that lucky, maybe you should get a lottery ticket instead.
As a bonus, by using the birthday cake that comes with your paid gacha, you can enjoy a special series of beach volley matches, and you can unlock an event which will award you with a ring for Kasumi.
Keep in mind that this is valid only for the Japanese version of the game via DMM. The Steam version in English is behind in content by approximately a year, so it features last year’s birthday event instead.
You can check out the related trailer below, showing the coveted swimsuit included in the gacha.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation, is a free-to-play version of Dead or Alive Xtreme, available only for PC.
