It’s already May 5 in Japan, which means that Koei Tecmo’s free-to-play game Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation is celebrating Nagisa’s birthday.
If you’re familiar with the game, you likely know that the celebration is most definitely not free. A new gacha has been introduced with a celebratory costume, and only V-stones purchased with real money are eligible to participate.
On top of that, the gacha cheats. Instead of offering the costume with the basic 1.1% rate, which is already low, it’s reduced to an abysmal 0.78% because other random SSR costumes are thrown into the pool.
As usual, if you’re playing the Steam version in English, you get a similar deal, but since that version is behind in content by a year, you don’t get the newest costume.
If you want to see what the costumes looks like, you can check out the trailers below for the Japanese and English versions respectively.
Whoever coined the “it’s the thought that matters” phrase certainly never played Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation.
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.
