So, they are finally allowing R18+ games to be released in Australia. What game is it?
Well, as the title states, it's published by Nintendo (in conjunction with Tecmo), who are infamous for being that "kiddy" company, despite many efforts at trying to tone down that image for a long time to the point of actually publishing a few games themselves.
*I know that's not the AU boxart, but bear with me here and see the link above
Is that an accomplishment, or what?
I don't think Nintendo was trying to change image. It was more like trying to get moe people to buy from them. As a "kiddy" company there do decently well.
What I'm sick of is people blaming rated m "badass and gorey" games and people saying kids only play m rated games because they're violent.
@shadowchronicle Never said they were changing image, just that they've been trying to peg it down since N64.
nintendo already published two M rated games here and in japan they published a D rated game so i dontsee why this is such a big deal.
@lewispetty It's a big deal because this is the first game to be R18+ in Australia. Also, Nintendo published THREE M rated games in the states, it wasn't just Eternal Darkness and Geist on GameCube, they also did Perfect Dark (back when Rare was with them) for N64.
They have some crazy laws down under, but it's nice that gamers there won't have to import the game to play it. :)
