Dead or Alive: Dimensions reclassified in Australia

Dead or Alive: Dimensions has been reclassified "M" (Mature) by the Australian Classification Board for "violence and sexualized gameplay." The game, which previously held a PG rating, recently had its status revoked for unspecified reasons.

The most likely cause for the reclassification has to do with fallout from Sweden, where the game is no longer being distributed due to "underage" DoA characters being placed in risque situations within the game's "Figure Mode." This isn't the first example of Australia changing a rating after the media picks up on a game's questionable content.
