Much of the world is currently enjoying the hot new 3DS fighter Dead or Alive: Dimensions, but thanks to a child pornography scare, fans in Sweden, Denmark and Norway are forced to miss out.

3DS fighter Dead or Alive: Dimensions is very good, but its quality hasn't resulted in big sales in the UK, as it's failed to make the top 40 chart. Even with Nintendo's sales and marketing expertise behind the game it failed to sell enough copies to make it into the top 40 All Formats Chart.

The great fight begins
Nintendo Europe clearly has faith in the fighting skills of its 3DS handheld: not only is it taking care of marketing and distribution for Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, it's going to do the same thing for Tecmo Koei's Dead or Alive Dimensions in May. While Tecmo Koei will maintain publishing privileges, Nintendo's...
That video of Samus Aran appearing in Dead or Alive: Dimensions?
