* A common myth is that [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive Dead or Alive Dimensions]] is banned in Sweden. At the time of it's release, Sweden was caught up in a highly publicized, highly controversial trial of a Manga translator, who'd been caught with {{Lolicon}} on his hard drive. In response, a guy asked on a forum if the VideoGame/DeadOrAlive games shouldn't be banned then, since they clearly sexualize teenage girls (all DOA games before or since, have been released scot-free in Sweden) and in response Bergsala (Nintendos Swedish affiliate) didn't pick up Dimensions for distribution. But it's not banned. You can import it with no trouble whatsoever, and for that matter Sweden doesn't have any government branch or ratings board dealing with video games.
