After "Dead or Alive" team said that "Dead or Alive Xtreme 3" will remain in Japan due to the ongoing discussion of portrayal of women, HuniePot, the developer for "HuniePop," would offer $1 million to publish the game for a Western release.
Probably nothing to them but I'd give Koei Tecmo $1M for the rights to publish DOAX in the US. Let me take the heat.
100% serious. It's an extra million they otherwise wouldn't have. Seems like a no brainer to me. Let them know.
.@KoeiTecmoUS I'll give you $1M for the rights to publish DOAX in the states. Serious offer, for whatever it's worth. HuniePot
This was what the "Dead or Alive" team said to curious fans who wanted to know if "Dead or Alive Xtreme 3" was coming to the West (please bare in mind this is a rough translation from Japanese to English provided from the team):
Do you know many issues happening in video game industry with regard to how to treat female in video game industry? We do not want to talk those things here. But certainly we have gone through in last year or two to come to our decision. Thank you.
Whether Koei Tecmo ignores the offer or takes them on it isn't known at this point. As of this writing, "Dead or Alive Xtreme 3" will remain in Japan only until further notice.
