Australia Gets Its First R18+ Video Game

Ironically, it's for a Nintendo System

Finally, all the fuss and endless waiting has come to an end for the good people of Australia. We recall: until lately, the highest possible rating for video games was MA15+ ("not suitable for persons under the age of 15"). That was a shame mostly for two reasons:

  1. Australia has always had an R18+ rating but didn't apply it to video games.
  2. Some very popular games had to be censored in order to obtain the 15+ rating (Syndicate [2012], Mortal Kombat [2011], The Witcher 2, only to name a few). We reported about many of those incidents.

Mid 2011, the first attempts were made to apply the R18+ rating to games, as well. Now, the benefits of this act can be observed for the first time.

Just recently, the Australian ratings board OFLC (Office of Film and Literature Classification) classified the extended Wii-U porting of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge with the R18+ label. Nothing more to say to that, except: congratulations and happy gaming, Australia!
