In 2017, the Koei Tecmo team included Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation a game of the spin-off series was published for the first time in Japan for the PC. Two years later the title found its way to Europe. The release on the PC then caused a wave of mods that the publisher does not fully agree to use. Koei Tecmo has now commented on a special case.
This is about material from Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation, which was recorded with several mods and offered as a DVD on various marketplaces on the Internet. Including a nude mod that removes all of the game's protagonists' bikinis. The creator of these videos is now dealing with the Kanagawa Prefectural Police. Despite the changes made by mods, this is of course still a copyright infringement. Publisher Koei Tecmo has also filed a lawsuit in court, which revolves around damages and the illegal sale of protected works.
Koei Tecmo also announced that the company will deal with copyright infringement much more strictly in the future. The first game in the spin-off series was released for Xbox back in 2003 – back then as Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. This was followed by two more successors: Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 (2006) and Xtreme 3 (2016). In the game, several characters from the famous fighting game series spend their time on a vacation island, which is equipped with numerous mini-games and activities.
