Dead or Alive: Dimensions returns to Australian retail

Nintendo has been successful in obtaining an M15+ classification for Dead or Alive: Dimensions within Australia.

After resubmission, the Classifications Board approved the game’s return to retail in the next age bracket up, with content advisories for “violence and sexualised gameplay”.

Interestingly, only the “violence” advisory has been upgraded; the original PG classification already included mention of sexualised gameplay.

Dead or Alive: Dimensions was pulled from retail after a media furore sparked a classification revocation.

Local media were concerned by reports from Nordic territories that the game’s Showcase mode might contravene child pornography laws.
