Katana ZERO has been Refused Classification in Australia
Those hoping to pick up Katana Zero tomorrow will be disappointed. The game has been refused classification in Australia, most likely due to the games drug usage.
In the game the main character is an assassin who uses Chronos, a drug that allows you manipulate time, using drugs in games toward a positive effect are usually frowned upon by the Australian Classification Board.
Devolver Digital who is publishing the game let everyone know via Twitter this morning. They are hoping to resubmit the game and get it through. We’ll let you know if that happens.
Update: It looks like Devolver will try and get it rated outside the IARC system and that’ll hopefully get it over the line.
It was originally submitted through IARC, we will now submit back through the individual boards.
