Tecmo's 3DS brawler Dead or Alive: Dimensions has been controversially cancelled in Sweden, Norway or Denmark.
The game has been pulled from release in the Nordic regions due to a potential violation of child pornography laws.

Nintendo of Europe stated: "Nintendo of Europe have decided not to release the game in Sweden, for various reasons. However, they do not want to list any details regarding their decision. We are sorry for how this impacts the Swedish fans of Dead or Alive. Thankfully, it's extremely unusual that these things happen."
