Dead or Alive Xtreme 3's VR mode looks exactly as you'd expect

PlayStation VR’s launch library clearly has something for everyone

PlayStation VR has yet to arrive — the headset launches Oct. 13 — but Koei Tecmo has already nailed down its plan to attract a certain consumer base to the new hardware. Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, the series’ latest, Asian region-exclusive research project on the female form, will support the PlayStation VR on launch day, and the first, not at all safe for work footage of the mode in action leaves nothing up to surprise. got to immerse itself in Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, capturing the experience on camera. Watch above for nearly three minutes of gazing upon a bikini-clad beach babe who takes no issue with being studied up and down from inches away during her tropical vacation.

There’s a cut to the player himself near the halfway mark that captures the Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 VR experience in just a matter of seconds. The single-player mode, which Siliconera reports is called "VR Paradise" and comprises a swimsuit gallery and photo option, among other features, will have individual PlayStation VR users visiting that paradise on their own. Those who see this as the headset's killer app will be delighted as much by the exotic view as the ability to lean in close for a better look at it.

Koei Tecmo first announced the VR mode last September, alongside the game. Virtual reality support comes to PlayStation 4 owners of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 as part of an update on Oct. 13. As the publisher said back in December, the main game isn't coming West — following a social media post that pointed toward Western ideas of female representation in games as the reason why — so don’t count on playing the VR mode outside of Asian regions.
