That was an impressive 180 turn by NISA. But unless the BD/DVD by Aniplex set charts on fire, I doubt it's coming.

Now I came across this: A CERO Z-rating for the game?

I'm thinking about the infamous Episode 3 for causing this rating (we know it's equal to the ESRB M-rating) to be slapped on the side.

Or possible could be D-rating. If Banpresto lighten the violent content in it, might be a C-rating (equivalent to T in the ESRB rating system, but for 15+)

A dungeon crawler with a Z-rating? Unless you'd witness Episode 3 all over again in this game, the rating seems unnecessary.

As I said, Z Rating in Japan would mean killing any sales expectations, unless they plan on selling 5-6000 copies at best.

Yeah... Z rating is pretty bad. It's like a game in the states getting an Adults Only rating instead of Mature, or a movie getting NC-17 instead of a R rating. Unless it was like porn to begin with, having the most extreme rating ruins sales.

Because today's adult games rating typically use a D-rating (for Japan) and M (for Americans).

Personally, given the gruesomeness of the show, the fact this is happening to middle school girls, and Japan pretty much giving very violent games a Z rating, I wouldn't be suprised if the Z rating for Madoka Magica PSP is real.

That's different from a Z rating in Japan or AO for America. There's nothing wrong with an M rating. However, most stores simply refuse to sell AO games.

That's because too much blood and also the scenes are quite disturbing, so many stores that sell video games wouldn't AO-rated games in America. In my opinion, it could be this version's violence can be toned down. Because it is still under development, so the rating in the picture still not absolute

A Z? That's too much, unless they added some gore to the game. Higurashi has way more stuff than Madoka, yet it got a D (on PS2).

Or maybe they added an XXX scene, that's a 100% surefire way to get a Z, lol...

Given that the pic came from the Yaraon! blog, I'll never know if the rating is for real, unless we bother to check the website for the game to see the actual rating.

I agree with you. We can't decide the rating first, unless if it has been established by CERO, or even ESRB (if publisher and developer want to provide license).

What...Z? All the more I want this....I'd expect they'd made it at least as gory as the manga like this.
