It’s January 1 in Japan at the moment of this writing, which means that it’s the birthday of Monica from Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation.
Of course, the free to play PC game is “celebrating” in the usual way. If you’re familiar with the game, you know the drill.
The developer released a new paid-only costume gacha with the usual abysmal SSR chance that pretty much turns this into a money sink.
There is a 1.1% chance to draw an SSR, but the odds to get the new one are even lower since they threw in random older costumes. You need to hit a crazy-low 0.78% and that’s certainly not easy.
Since only one gacha wasn’t enough, they also restored the costumes from last year, so you get two ways to sink money into the game instead of one. isn’t throwing money at frustrating low-chance gacha a joyous way to celebrate the new year?
Incidentally, only the older gacha is included in the Steam version in English, which is behind in content by approximately a year.
You can check out a trailer featuring the new costume below.
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.
