It seems the Australian Classification Board has turned down Idea Factory International’s upcoming dungeon-crawler MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death. This will give the game an RC rating in the region, a rating that was last given to Hotline Miami 2, in Australia.

MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death is loosely tied to characters from the PlayStation Vita game Trillion: God of Destruction. Additionally, there’s no word at this time on why the game is receiving this rating. The ESRB has given the title a Teen rating and Japan similarly received a Cero B.

Operation Rainfall is currently working on an impressions piece from our time with the title at E3. It’s safe to say that the RC rating is a stretch, as there wasn’t much in the way of fan service. Other than a few giggling boobs and outfits. This could mean that the game will have to undergo changes to receive a lower rating in Australia, but nothing has been revealed at this time.

MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death is coming to the PlayStation Vita in Fall 2016 in North America and Europe.

    Australia is not a good place for gamers. I doubt there’s anything too controversial in this game to justify the ban.

    In any case this is one dungeon crawler I’m really looking forward to.

    IFI said they wouldn’t release any games that needed censoring. I have no idea why it got this rating, I mean what did Trillion get with those hot springs CG’s?

    • Seems to me that they’ve refused to rate it because of provocatively-dressed “underage” females.

      But the hot springs scenes had little kids in the buff, I highly doubt this game is worse, I can’t comprehend it lol.

    Australia is retarded.

  • It’s like they make up the rules and apply it only when it suits them doesn’t it?

    Australia has become such a leftist-SJW shit-hole.

    Fuck Australia and fuck the SJWs.

      I’m not sure its “feminists” that are doing it. Doesn’t Australia have that law with the no flat chested females shown in a sexual light on television rule? I think its just a board full of prudish old people.

    • The mainstream media, news media, news outlets, politics, entertainment media, advertising, activism, campaigns, academia, education, etc. all operate on and push feminist ideology propaganda. If you live in the USA or Europe you’ll know this. For example I’m in the UK and have to put up with this shit every day in the media.

      Feminists make up the vast majority of Social Justice Warriors. And these SJWs constantly get into important/high positions in big companies to influence and push their agenda. I believe they’ve done this with the ratings boards. I do not have any proof of course, but this kind of censorship fits in with the current climate of extreme leftist SJW-feminist ideology that is infesting absolutely everything right now.

      – Giving fictional female characters “rights” has always been a feminist advocation and an excuse to get them censored.
      – “Think-Of-The-Children” has always been a feminist excuse to get things they dislike banned.
      – Taking away entertainment media that boys/men enjoy has always been one of the main goals of the feminists.

      So these boards full of “prudish old people” are very likely to be SJWs or influenced by SJWs/feminists.

      It may not be directly from feminists, but it’s the same puritanical shit that stems from it.

      You should also be aware of the fact in France and the UK, politicians are trying to push to pass a law to implement a ‘Sexism’ label for video games to depict female characters “positively”. Guess who’s behind the campaign? Socialist feminists.
