Different cultures have different tastes. That's a given, and will always result in slight differences in game ratings. But what's just happened to 3DS game Dead or Alive: Dimensions is too strange to overlook.

On February 26, the Nintendo 3DS will be released in Japan. If a 3DS game has a release date — or even release window — this is where you'll find it.
Venerable fighting series Dead or Alive will get its shot at the 3DS with Dead or Alive: Dimensions. Here is the five-minute trailer for the game shown at the Nintendo World event for the 3DS.
That is, if you live in Japan. Nintendo is rolling out its Nintendo World 2011 next year in Chiba, Japan. The Kyoto-based company has a list of titles that will be playable for those over six. You're over six, right?
The first three months of 2011 are full of Musou flavor, courtesy of Dead or Alive and Dynasty Warriors publisher Tecmo Koei. It might also squeeze in a pair of Nintendo 3DS games, right around the 3D handheld's launch.
Street Fighter isn't the only fighting game making its way to Nintendo's 3D gaming handheld.
