Wait until you get the Mermaid suit from Zack.
Ayane: Raccoon suit
Wait until you get the Raccoon suit from Zack.
Ayane: Get as a partner
Ayane can be a difficult to get as a partner because
she is stubborn. Buy anything purple (flowers, glasses, swimsuits,
etc.). Ayane also loves butterflies (as you can see in the Dead
Or Alive 3 introduction sequence). Do not buy origami, as
Ayane will throw them away. If you play as her or Kausmi and you
receive them from someone and select "View", she will
say "This brings back bad memories". Also, if you are
Kasumi, Ayane will not team up with you (and vice versa). Kasumi
and Ayane may be half sisters, but they do not like each other.
It would be a waste of money if you are playing as either one
and try to get the other as your partner. Another way to get Ayane
as a partner is to keep visiting her after you send her gifts,
and after you have defeated her in a volleyball match. It should
take a few days, but Ayane will become your partner.
Christie: Cat ears
There is no way to buy the cat ears for Christie at
the accessory shop. The only way to get them is to buy (or wait
for Zack to send it to you) the "Panther" one piece
bikini. The swimsuit has a panther tail, and once equipped to
Christie, she will automatically wear cat ears.
Helena: Get as partner
If you are having trouble getting Helena as a partner
try these steps. Always buy her white (clothes, shoes, glasses,
flowers, etc.). You can also buy her anything that has to do with
the ocean, as she loves dolphins (get her dolphin clocks, the
silver dolphin, dolphin Sea World tickets, sea shells ,etc.).
If Helena is still refusing to be your partner, play against her
once then send another gift over to her and she should say "Yes".
Hitomi: Cheerleading suit
Buy it in the store with Hitomi. There are different
versions of it.
Hitomi: Cat ears
There are two ways to get cat ears with Hitomi. You
can either buy them at the accessory shop or wait for Zack to
send them to you. You will have to play with Hitomi for at least
two vacations before they appear in the shop or Zack gives them.
Hitomi: Get as partner
Though Hitomi's favorite color is "sky blue",
there are not that many items of that color. The next best thing
is anything blue (flowers, swimsuits, volleyballs, glasses, etc.).
You can also get Hitomi other colors. Be careful of what you choose.
Visors, glasses, shoes, and some swimsuits are acceptable, but
do not get her different color flowers, nail polish, swimsuits
etc. Hitomi should be yours within two to three days if done correctly.
Kasumi: Army hat and gear
To get an army hat and two canteens with Kasumi, go
to the sport shop. It probably will not be there until after the
first day. Look for the Salvia swimsuit. It costs 330,000 credits.
When you purchase the bikini, you will not see the hat and canteens
until you put it on Kasumi. The only way to get the army hat and
canteens is with Kasumi, and they will never be in the accessory
shop. Zack will never send you the Salvia swimsuit, as well as
any other character, since Kasumi is the only character that can
get it. You can send the Salvia to the other girls, but most of
them will throw it away.
Kasumi: Get as partner
Buy Kasumi everything pink (flowers, hats, stuffed
bears, glasses, swimsuits, etc.). You can also buy her swimming
goggles. Within one or two days, Kasumi should be your partner.
Play as Ayane and accept Lisa as your partner. Immediately begin
buying gifts for Kasumi .Check the guides for gifts that she likes;
but she generally loves anything pink, and origami from the Zack
of all trades. Play volleyball when you do not see her out during
the day to keep your cash flow high. Whenever you see her, flood
her with gifts. Do not be frustrated if she rejects them at first,
as she undoubtedly will the first few times. You may want to start
by giving her cheaper gifts first. Once you are sure she is accepting
gifts, send her the more expensive, rarer Zack of all trades gifts
whenever you see her. This may take a while (even most of your
vacation), but is worth it.
Leifang: Wearing almost nothing
In order to see the most of Leifang's skin wait until
after the fourth day for the Oreial swimsuit. It barely covers
her skin, but costs a lot of money.
Leifang: Panda costume
Wait until Zack gives you the Panda suit. It has panda
If you wait long enough, Zack will give you the Phoenix.
Leifang: Get as partner
Lei Fang is easy to get as a partner because she is
nice to everybody. If you are having trouble getting her as a
partner, buy her cute items (stuffed bears, cushions, yellow butterflies,
sunflowers, etc.). Buy her anything yellow (fans, flowers, hats,
sunglasses, etc.). If you want to buy a swimsuit for her, the
best kind are ones that have the color yellow or those that have
flowers or animals (in Hitomi's, there is one that has a yellow
sun flower on the front).
Lisa: Leopard ears
Allow Zack to get you the leopard suit.
Tina: Rabbit or cat ears
There is no way to purchase cat or rabbit ears in the
accessory shop with Tina, and Zack will never give them to you
as a gift. To get them, go to the Sport Shop and buy the Arnob
one piece swimsuit. Note: It is not cheap. When you play in a
volleyball (or hopping) game with Tina, she will be wearing rabbit
Tina: Black Cat suit
Wait for Zack to give you the Black Cat suit. It has
Tina: Getting as partner
Use the following trick to get Tina as your partner
at the start of the game instead of Lisa: Tina is probably one
of the most difficult characters to get as your partner besides
Christie. Start the game as Lisa. Tina will now be in the chair
at the start of the game instead of Lisa. Note: Tina will give
you an expensive present every night (for example, swimsuits that
only she can get or rare accessories) as long as you send her
a blue gift each night.
If you are having trouble getting Tina as a partner follow these
steps. Always buy blue items for Tina. Not all blue items work.
For example, if you are playing as Lei Fang and you give the Heron
swimsuit to Tina, she will either throw it away or it will bring
down her friendship with you. It depends if Tina likes you or
not. Some recommended items would be anything leopard (volley
balls, wristbands, shoes, etc.), western items (western hat, gold
guns), and anything American. It should take a few days before
Tina will become your partner and say "I'll Do It!".
If Tina refuses a gift at anytime, either go back and see her
the same or send it to her from the hotel.
Keeping on good terms with your partner
Give your partner their favorite gift in color, type,
hobby, or their nationality (one or two gifts). When you wake
up in the morning, check the music notes around their head. If
only one music note floats up, you are not doing well with your
partner. If it is two music notes, then their enthusiasm is pretty
good. Three music notes indicates that both of you are getting
along very well.
Selecting a partner
Choose your partners wisely. Try to partner up with
girls that have a lot of power; for example, Tina or Hitomi. Then,
when you are receiving the ball during game play, try to have
them make the first hit upon return, in which case you set them
up for a spike using [B]. Very often, the other players,
even if they are blocking, will be knocked down by their enormous
Getting a partner easily
Note: This trick may not work on Christie, Tina, or
Ayane. Instead of buying gifts for the partner you want, defeat
them in a volleyball match. The better you try, the better they
will like you. If possible, try make the person you want make
mistakes a lot of times so that you have a better chance of getting
her. You may need to defeat some girls twice in order for her
to like you.
Knowing when someone is ready to
One way of knowing when a character is ready to leave
is to look at the music notes that float above the their picture.
Another way is by looking at the character's pictures as they
will change if they are confident, unsure, or unwilling.
Moving your partner
If you do not like the position in which your partner
is standing during a match, you can move them by using the "Right
Managing your items
While in any shop, choose the item that you are interested
in. Press [X] and the girl will tell you if she has seen
that item before. This will help you determine if you have the
item in your inventory. Keep in mind that if you have given another
girl the item, she will say she has seen that item before. This
hint would probably work better for someone who is starting the
game from the beginning. However, it is useful when trying to
fill your girl's inventory.
You can change the music playing at anytime by pressing
[Black] (advance to next track) or [White] (repeat current
Hold [L] immediately after someone scores.
When viewing a "Gravure" movie or another
camera-controlled angle, click the Right Analog-stick to
lock and unlock the desired angle.
Click the Left Analog-stick to lock the view controlled
by it in its current position. Zoom to a desired magnification
then press [X] to lock it at that setting.
In order to receive 1000 points for each serve, make
sure that your calibration is adjusted so that it is about 30%
(one third of the way from the left of the bar), then press [A]
firmly to throw the ball in the air. Press [A] firmly again
just before the player is about to make contact with the ball.
This is very helpful during game play, as you can still get some
points even if you lose your match.
When your partner sets you up for a spike, there is
an easier way to score. Hold [Left Analog-stick Left] to
make the ball fly closer to the net, so it is harder for the other
team to recover. If they try to block your spike, use the same
method only use "Tap" and they will almost never get it.
While playing the a volleyball game, it is often useful
to toss the ball to your partner who may spike it and score a
point. However, if you toss the ball to your partner while she
is back half way or more from the net, she may try and spike the
ball hard and hit the net, causing the other team to get a point.
Control ball during a spike
Press [Left] during the spike to spike it short;
[Right] to spike it deep; [Up] to spike it high (to
the top of the screen); or [Down] to spike it low (to the
bottom of the screen). You can do this in a combo (for example,
press "Down/Right "to spike it low and deep.
Avoid getting blocked during a spike
Hold [Away] on the D-Pad (towards your
side of the court) and tap [B]. This will gently tap the
ball just over your opponent's head. It will fall behind them,
just far enough from their partner's reach.
Preventing cheap shots
When you are playing a match, and the opposing team
spikes the ball so hard that your player receives the ball but
hits the ground and the ball flies back over the net, about 90%
of the time the opposing team is going to spike that ball at where
you are laying. Use the Right Analog-stick to move your
partner to the spot where you were standing, so they can bounce
it to you while you are getting up, or hit the ball back over
Finding an easy match
When looking at the selectable courses, look at the
profiles of the two characters you are playing against. They seem
to follow the same ones from Exhibition mode, where if her head
is turned slightly, it indicates that she is less willing to play
with the person she is paired with. This often leads to a lot
of missed volleys and spikes on their part, making for an easier
match and a chance to win more money.
Detecting bad emotions on the court
During the first few matches with a new teammate, she
will compliment you on a good serve or spike. The moment your
partner stops giving you kudos, it is time to cheer her up as
best as possible. If it is someone you can do without, this is
not that important, but otherwise you will need to buy your friend
something she will really like to stay in good terms with her.
If none of the shops have exactly what you want, go to the Sports
Shop and buy a moderately expensive swimsuit. That usually does
the trick and usually there is something that she really likes
in the shops the next day. Remember, when the two of you break
up she will not accept any more gifts from you until the vacation's
Easier survival mode
Choose two characters that you are very good with.
When you start, the first character(s) are very easy to defeat.
Once you get to about 7 or 8, it starts to get difficult. Always
pick up the little icons that drop from the CPU when they lose,
as this brings up your health slightly. When the CPU is on the
ground, quickly press [Down] + [Black] button as your
second character (if playing in team attack mode) to stomp on
the CPU character. If successful, an icon will come out of them.
If you are low on health, pick it up. When the CPU keeps attacking,
grab their attack after the first hit. For example, when Zack
keeps kicking you can grab his kick after the first hit if you
are fast enough. If the CPU keeps switching characters, block
and hit when you can get the chance then quickly switch to your
other character. Note: You can tell when they are going to keep
switching if you watch their health. Their first and second character
should be at the same amount of health. If one is higher than
the other, the CPU will call the character with the lower health
When playing in survival mode, press [Start] on controller
two. You will go to a two-player versus battle. Defeat the non-moving
opponent, and select "Return". Your health will be fully
restored, and your wins count will not be reset.
Hidden FMV sequence
Go to the casino and play the slot machine "My
Fair Lady" (Tina's slot machine). Bet $300 every time when
playing until you get three Tinas. You will then see a short FMV
sequence of a neon light showing Zack kissing Tina.
Give any girl the Venus swimsuit
Play as Lisa and win about 1,500,000 credits playing
volleyball. Buy the Venus swimsuit then start a new game. Lavish
the desired character with gifts. After the character in question
starts to give you a lot of gifts in the hotel, lay the Venus
swimsuit on her in the morning. Next, buy her a couple more gifts
-- one that she will really like and one that she will dislike.
Start a new game with the character you gave the Venus swimsuit
to, and it should be in their inventory.
Play the game as Lisa and earn 1,000,000 credits. As you are earning
the money, start giving the person you desire gifts that she really
likes. Wait until the music notes start to move rapidly. Once
you have enough to buy the Venus, wait until evening to give her
the swimsuit. She has to open it in front of you.
Give any girl a swimsuit
If you want to give a girl an expensive suit, but she
keeps throwing it away, get on good terms with the girl. Keep
trying to give her the suit. If you give it to her three times
and she throws it away each time, leave the island and start a
new game with that girl. Give a lot of gifts to the girl who has
the suit. She will eventually give it to you as a gift. This may
take some time and money, but it almost always works.
Increasing your swimsuit inventory
Since any single character can only buy certain swim
suits, it can become somewhat tedious to obtain every outfit.
In order to speed things up a little, team up with someone you
know has a costume you would want, or one that your teammate does
not have yet. Once you become better friends, anything you give
her as a gift, in this case a swimsuit, she will keep. The key
is to make sure she is at least somewhat happy with your performance
on the court. After you give your teammate an outfit, it is most
likely you will get one as thanks when you return to your room
the next evening.
If your character is not performing very well, take
them to get some juice or food to eat. Afterwards, do the pool
hopping game to increase their response and enthusiasm.
Keeping items fresh
Certain items purchased from the Accessory Shop or
Zack Of All Trades can spoil or dry out if held too long. The
best time to give gifts is back at the hotel since you can give
something to everyone without time passing. If you are going to
buy something that could go bad, such as a favorite food, it is
best to buy it during the evening before the last match of the
day so it will not spoil until the next morning. This is also
useful when you need to put these things in the collection, which
can only be transferred from the items section at the hotel.
Hopping game views
While playing the hopping game, stop your girl on any
float and watch her try to keep her balance. She will not fall
off. This gives you another option to watch her with the two toggles
and the [R] zoom. Use [L] and set the camera, click
down on the toggle to lock the view, then do the same with the
right toggle. Press R to zoom and L to change the camera angle.
Do not play for too long. It seems you will get on
a losing streak if you play over fifteen times in roulette, twenty
five times in poker and blackjack, and thirty times on the slots.
However, some days are better than others. You can win the most
money in roulette
Winning at roulette
Save about 1,000,000 credits. Then, go to the casino
and set your chips to 10,000 credits. Play roulette and put all
the chips you can on either the red or black panel that has no
numbers. The red or black panel is the row closest to you. You
will have a 50% chance of winning.
The more items you buy, the more videos Zack sends
you. If you play forever and never by anything, not a single video
will be sent to you. Try to collect as many items, swimsuits,
etc. as possible. The Ninja Gaiden trailer is the eight movie
to come from Zack.
