You may have seen our recent review of Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword done by James Best.  But if you live in the Australia or European regions, you haven’t been able to enjoy the game like James.  However, if recent developments suggest anything, this will soon be enjoyed by our friends in the PAL regions.

A rating from the Australian Classification Board has revealed a PG rating – similar to E10+ from the ESRB – for Hana Samurai: Art of the Sword (unless we are way off and Nintendo just happens to have a new game that has pretty much the same name, it’s the PAL title for Sakura Samurai).  No rating has surfaced from the Pan European Game Information (PEGI) ratings board but we do expect it to appear at some point.

Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword is available in the Japan and North America regions right now on the eShop and has been well-received by numerous publications, including us.
