A video game that has been likened to child pornography is to be pulled from the shelves after having its classification revoked.
The Classification Board originally gave the Nintendo 3DS fighting game Dead Or Alive: Dimensions a child-friendly PG rating.
But the board was forced to reconsider the rating after media reports brought some risque content to its attention - namely the ability to look up the skirts of scantily clad teenage characters.
The board asked Nintendo to advise it why the classification should not be revoked but was not satisfied with the response.
The game is now officially unclassified, meaning it cannot be sold in Australia unless Nintendo resubmits it for a new classification.
Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor welcomed the decision.
"The material in this game is clearly not appropriate to be played by children," Mr O'Connor said in a statement.
"I am pleased the Classification Board took swift action to address community concerns."
The game - the latest in a long-running series of combat games featuring big-breasted female warriors - was also pulled from sale in Europe.
