Dead or Alive: Dimensions Ousted from Norway, Denmark and Sweden Due to Child Porn Allegations

It turns out that the developers may have gone just a bit too far with the sexiness in Dead or Alive: Dimensions. The release of the game in the aforementioned territories has turned into a catastrophe, thanks to accusations of – and this is a bit of a doosey – child pornography. The mention of just a possible violation led to the distributor (Bergsala) snatching down the game with no questions asked. This was reportedly to avoid causing any further sensation from the recent Nordic case involving a manga artist and child porn.

The accusation was born from the 3DS title’s Figure Mode, which allows players to view various poses of the scantily clad female characters from any position. Kasumi, Ayane and Kokoro are all seventeen years old and can be viewed in extremely suggestive ways. In fact, that’s Ayane in the S&M getup above. This is a trademark of the series. This news is certainly heartbreaking for Nordic fans of the series and I extend my sincerest regret to them all. Dead or Alive: Dimensions hits US store shelves next week on May 24th.
