Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet - details on content, changes, framerate, resolution, and more, plus character and cover art

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet was revealed for the Switch over the weekend, and we know it's based on a title that hit PS4 back in 2016. Wondering what updates and content there are in this version? The official teaser site for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet has opened, and it shares some of that info.

■ Girls

Misaki (New)
??? (announcement later)
Marie Rose
■ Soft 4D

The Switch version of the game uses “Soft 4D,” which is a combination of the Soft Engine and HD Rumble.

■ Improvements

Various aspects of the game have been improved for “greater comfort” and “ease of play” based on player feedback, including the easier rising of Owner Level and accumulation of Zack Money, and some swimsuits being purchasable with in-game currency.

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet Free-to-Play Version will be released for Switch at a later date.

The new characters will be released for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Fortune (as paid downloadable content) at a later date.

by my sight, they're missing that framerate target by a couple digits

I'm still thinking they should have brought a real DOA game over this silliness. But even this couldn't get a freaking 60FPS target? Come on... What's the point of even bringing it over if it'll run at half the speed and the inputs will feel all wrong. (unless they optimize it properly) Kinda hoping they'll port the first DOA sometime, if they can't with 6.

Visual framerate doesn't have to be the same as processing framerate. For example, I think it's Super Mario 3D World (might be 64) that calculates movement twice per vdisplayed frame.

Hey, Team Ninja! How about, you know, a REAL DOA game? Or a Ninja Gaiden remastered trilogy? Or, you know, ANYTHING other than this?

Metroid Other M: Game of the Decade Edition

edit: Hmmmm.... maybe the ??? character is Samus.

Kimishima's final decision as Nintendo's president. /salute

That.... That would actually be damn awesome. ZSS. But what about her in a "real" DOA game, eh?

Is there a fun volleyball game in there or is it mostly just about perving out?

It’s no Beach Spikers but the volleyball actually is enjoyable. Making the girls happy really is the main focus of the game though.

Oh, so this is another port. Why am I not surprised? I thought maybe this was a new and original game, should've known better. And it's not even a real DOA game. SMH.

At first I was like "DOA=fighting game but only in 30 FPS?" Then I started to wake up a bit and saw it's not a fighting game... 30 FPS is fine on this one.

Oh and, boobiez!

Butt battle time, get hype...

I am, I am. No worries there ;)

Not 1080p and not even 60 fps in docked mode. Pathetic.

On a sidenote, i'm under the impression that the PS4 version will be censored (missing a few items or options).
