Rated M games in Japan

    0

     

    CERO recently announced that they changed their rating system, which ended up looking similar to the ESRB’s scale. Now there are two distinct ratings for “M” type games. A game gets a “D” rating if it’s made for gamers 17 years old and the “Z” rating is for game is for adults only (18+). Currently only a few games landed the infamous Z rating and they are:

     

    Driv3r

    Max Payne

    killer7

    Grand Theft Auto Double Pack

    Grand Theft Auto Vice City

    Grand Theft Auto III

    The Getaway

    The Getaway: Black Monday

    Berserk

    Simple 2000 Vol. 61: The Oneechanbara

    Simple 2000 Vol. 80: The Oneechanpuru

     

    Quick side note: The Oneechanbara games are the bloody hack and slash games where you play as a bikini clad female samurai. Here’s a link to a video of the first game.

     

    Also interesting to note are some of the games that got a labeled with a D rank. Previously most of these titles had a CERO 18 label, so it is like they’ve been downgraded from AO to M. Here are some of the games on the list:

     

    Ninja Gaiden

    Dead or Alive 4

    Fable

    Metal Gear Solid 3

    Outlaw Volleyball

    Resident Evil 4 (and most of the RE series)

    The Matrix: Path of Neo

    God of War

    Dead to Rights

    Rumble Roses

    Shoubushi Densetsu Tetsuya Digest Volume 3 (a gambling game)

    Sukinamono wa Suki Dakara Shouganai!! First Limit | Target Nights (and the rest of the series)

     

    Quick note about Sukinamono wa Suki Dakara Shouganai: This game series is based off the manga where a boy falls out of a four story window and ends up falling in love with his male dorm mates. The game is like a standard dating game except that it includes cross dressing and that it’s part of the “boy’s love” genre.
