    The reason for the delay is uh…uh… English(voice) localization. Yes. Totally.

    • Mr_SP

      The QA guys said they’d need “more time”. For, uh, reasons.

      • Bimz

        can’t… code… while fapping!!

    Noooooooooooooo! T_T I’m assuming this means the English Asian version will be delayed as well since it had the same release date?

    • Sal Romano

      Pretty much definite, yes.

    • Milewide

      I feel utterly crushed.

  • Yuntu

    Well there was probably something not jiggling right with the producers.

    • PuppetMaster

      They want the best shape for those T&A :v

  • makubexnas

    25 Feb around the world ……

    • Ice Highwind

      i prefer a wet towel

  • genkivision

    Sure why not. My money would’ve gone to Street Fighter V anyway

  • OldManObelisk

    They don’t want to share the fap material.

  • Bob Obb

    Genuinely shocking considering Tecmo isn’t a company that cares about game quality, and isn’t above releasing unfinished games. I’m assuming the reasons are financial.

    • Fighunter

      February is a rather packed month, but now that I look at it, so is March.

      • Kamakuma

        Oh is March just as bad?

        • Fighunter

          I can’t assume that the DoAX3 fans would purchase any of these games, but March has Gundam Breaker 3, Skullgirls, Summon Night 6, a Senran Kagura rerelease/special edition, a PsychoPass VN, God Eater Offshot 6 (basically a photography game of GodEater characters), Star Ocean 5 and Dark Souls 3.
          I tried to include “anime” games as that’s the closest to what I think would be DoAX3’s audience, and I included the biggest releases since you never know about audience overlap.
          By contrast April is rather empty. All I see is another GodEater Offshot, OnePiece, and Uncharted 4.

          • Kamakuma

            Hmm I’ll need to check my list. As for me Feb was turning out to be the most expensive month with a few imports and local Limited Editions coming out by then even. I had no idea Summon night 6 was out in March though.

            I do have my eye on the Star Ocean LE but it might be sold out by now haha. xD

  • Kamakuma

    I don’t know about others but this is GREAT news for me. x’D Now I’ll be able to almost afford the influx of games coming our Feb. x’3

  • genkivision

    Meh. Studio Fow already has me covered.

  • MegaRay

    Them boobies need more works…

  • ohlala lala

    Already know about this 2 weeks ago from local store new pre-order dates. I guess the inform the retailer before reveals it to media.

  • Pastmaster

    They got scared by the SFV month.

  • Geese Howard

    Noooooooo~!!!! No ‘soft’ engine till March now! Feb is when Valentine’s Day is, so Team ninja know’s a lot of guys will be focused on real chicks rather than virtual chicks… That is no excuse for the softness to be delayed!

  • Devin Lowe

    I’m just not at all convinced by the xenophobic “misogynistic” accusations from people here in the U.S. about this game.

    The characters are varying degrees of cute and sexy, and they’re wearing swim-wear, which isn’t the most revealing of attire.

    It’s not “objectification” at all. It’s just a silly side-game in the DoA series.

    Of course, some power-hungry “feminist” bitches want to ban the game from the U.S…. I HIGHLY doubt that they’re actually feminists in every sense of the word.

  • Kiera

    I can wait cause February is full with Games, so not bad for me.

    • Cutie Shut-In

      same. Sooo….two pervy games for me to buy in march…senran and DOAX3.

  • Bimz

    wow. can’t remember the last time I was disappointed from a delay :| I usually *embrace* delays. The silver lining is it’s better for my wallet as I need to buy SF5 day 1. maybe I can set aside some cash for doax3 collector’s edition this way. welp.

  • Momiji

    I just hope it is to make the game good, and not save it from disaster. At least they had the guts to delay it, that counts for something.

  • James Reilly

    Saw it coming with how tight the timing is. Better delay to get the game right though and assuming this is last delay it’s not a major one with it being a month

  • PunkishVampire

    Aww, I just recently pre-order this too. Oh well hopefully they make it better than ever!

  • Pepperkeet

    they needed to get the butt jiggle just right!

  • Joachim

    We should feel sad about this delay?

    • DrForbidden

      Just feel sad for blue balls.

  • Cutie Shut-In

    Yes! now I can buy naruto and nep nep without having to waste so much money.

  • chroma816

    Thank god – now February isn’t nearly as packed for me, game-wise.

    • Elvick

      Came here to say similar. Was thinking of cancelling this actually, but now I don’t have to.

    • ChronoSloth

      Agreed! Wasn’t looking forward to the import cost of this along with other February purchases.

  • DavidCage

    Tecmo:”we need more time to add specific “hair” to some private part of the body”

  • Vincent

    dammit all to shit i hope none of the other ebuary games i pre ordered gets delayed next like mighty no 9 street fighter neptunia . attack on titan etc

  • devilmaycry0917

    i hope they will use the extra time to add stuff not cut stuff

  • Unknowingreaper

    I wonder what their bikinis smell like after playing volleyball in the hot sun all day MMMmmmm………..

    • Brandon Artbandit McDuffie

      ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      • Unknowingreaper

        You know want a whiff

  • ChronoSloth

    I wonder what the reason is for the delay :( One month isn’t too painful, though. I’m okay with them taking the time they need for the GOTY to be perfect.

  • Zubin HV

    Oh cmon Just found this out today! was all hyped that my import’s going to begin shipping today. checked and was hit with the “Release Date: March 24th” Dx ffffffffffff
