Well this didn't take long. The Australian Classification Board has just signed off, and it's official: Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is our first R18+ game.
The game hit the R18+ threshold for what the Classification Board describes as "High impact bloody violence".
Interestingly, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is coming out for Nintendo's Wii U console. Here I thought it would both take longer than it has and be on a different console.
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge hits store shelves with a big, fat R18+ sticker soon.
