After it was first announced that Saints Row IV was too rough for release down in Australia and their appeal on the rating was denied, Deep Silver has been able to squeak into the country with an edited version of their game which netted them a MA15+ rating by the Australian Classification Board.

The company stated that the reason for the refusal in classification centered around the use of virtual alien drugs that players could use to improve their superpowers for a short time during an in-game mission with Shaundi. The Rectifier Probe weapon, part of the game’s announced DLC, will still be included in the Australian version of the game. This means that after the removal of that mission from the game, Saints Row IV is cleared for release in Australia when the game’s release date of August 22nd comes around.

As a big fan of anime and games I’ll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
