Bring Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 to the West

This petition had 5,346 supporters

It has been stated recently that the game Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 will not be ported to western countries out of fear of moral backlash. The publisher, Koei Tecmo, is afraid of the cultural outrage occurring in the west over video games, and has chosen to let it get the better of them.

This is a mistake. The puritan sensationalists are nothing but a self-glorified cabal of bullies and narcissists who are vastly outnumbered by their critics, most of whom are core gamers. The idea that any game should be withheld from its audience because of fear of depicting the female body is so outrageous that it should be called out and challenged wherever it is condoned, lest we give ground to the hackneyed pearl-clutchers who would put the world in a bottle if they had the power to.

People care about this game. They have been looking forward to it and yearned for the fun they will have when they get to play it. Now they won't, and the reason for it is because somebody else doesn't want them to. I cannot accept this. I won't live in a world where the comfort and happiness of a human being can be so effortlessly taken away from them by outside influences. For our lives and our hometowns, we must resist. Please, help us bring joy back to our industry and to our hobby.
