It’s already June 6 in Japan, which means that it’s the birthday of one of Dead or Alive’s heroines, Marie Rose. The free to play PC game Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation is celebrating in the usual way.
If you follow the game, you likely already know what it’s all about. Koei Tecmo and DMM are celebrating Marie Rose by introducing a new costume part of a paid-only gacha with a crazy-low 0.78% chance of actually getting it.
Since only one paid gacha isn’t enough to satisfy the publishers’ cash-grabbing inclinations, they also brought back last year’s birthday costume, so you have two options to throw money at the game instead of one. Not double dipping in this momentous occasion just wouldn’t do.
Incidentally, the same costume from last year will likely be featured in the celebration of the Steam version in English, which is behind in content by approximately a year, so the new one released today on the Japanese client is likely coming in 2021 there.
You can check out a trailer 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 recycling a lot of is assets but with extremely simplified gameplay, available only for PC.
