Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is Australia's first R18 game

The first game to get the R18 nod is a bloody fighting game. And no, we're not swearing.

So, there you have it - it's taken less than a fortnight for Australia to get its first R18 rated game. The Australian Classification Board announced today that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, has passed classification, and earned the new adults only rating.

“Under the Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games, R 18+ computer games will have a high impact and it is for this reason that these games are not suitable for under 18s,” said Lesley O’Brien, the Board's Director, in today's release.

“Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge contains violence that is high in impact because of its frequency, high definition graphics, and emphasis on blood effects.”

Interestingly, the game is an updated version of a title released last year, and rated MA15. This time around, it includes a slew of DLC and enhancements that apparently up the violence level appreciably.
