Seems like this is becoming common in these two countries, but Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni  has been refused a rating in both Germany and Australia. PQubed said the Australian OFLC board didn’t go into any details about its decision, however the Germany’s USK Board released a statement that read pretty much just like the one they issued for the Criminal Girls 2.  The game has already been rated by the ESRB which it received an M rating, and by the United Kingdom’s PEGI board in which it was rated 16.

Let’s just hope our friends in these countries don’t have too difficult of a time importing the game so they can join in the fun.


About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    they’re basically like “no lesbians for you”

    It is always discouraging when a game is banned in a country, no matter what the game. Region free games should always be the norm.

    • I don’t know what’s more discouraging – the game getting banned in the country or the seemingly lack of dissent against it

    • Mr0303

      Good thing PlayStation platforms are region free as all consoles should be.

    Nothing spells democracy quite like refusing to let other people experience something you find a bit morally questionable, right?

    • Kiryu

      That’s western democracy for you;where the minorities dictate the majority what is and isn’t allowed.

    • darkgamer001

      Pretty much. Partly explains some of the anti-establishment feeling in many countries, but I digress.
      Back on the topic, if the gaming industry had balls it would fight this tooth and nail and try to implement autonomous ratings that would force countries to either accept or be left in the dust.
      But of course, that’s not gonna happen anytime soon

      No chance, virtually the entire Western games industry and media has completely sided with Anita Sarkeesian and the feminists.

      The only way this shit will end is when the normies and sheeple wake up and get tired of the SJW/feminist gender politics, making the ideology no longer profitable.

  • Kiryu

    This is getting ridiculous now.This is an obvious witchhunt against japanese games since they can’t order japan what they can or can’t produce.

  • Go2hell66

    Right on schedule

  • Kazkari

    Atleast the people in Germany can order from France and other parts of Europe, I feel really sorry for those is Australia though no matter what they will be screwed by the importing aspect.

  • DariusQ

    Australia I can understand, but Germany? With the wild history of fetishes they’ve got this video game should barely be an afterthought.

    • Cats736

      Germany has been heading towards the gutter for a while now.

  • MusouTensei

    The USK can go fuck themselves, fucking homophobes.

  • Mr0303

    This doesn’t surprise me anymore. Germany and Australia’s draconian rules are making things harder for niche gamers over there.
