Ninja Gaiden 3: RE is Australia's first game rated R18+

You finally did it, Australia

It was a good day when Australia's R18+ rating was passed for videogames, paving the way for adults to purchase games that might have previously either been edited for content or refused classification. Of all the games that could have been first to receive this rating, it ended up being the Wii U's Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge.

The action title received the R18+ rating for "violence that is high in impact because of its frequency, high definition graphics, and emphasis on blood effects," according to director of the classification board Lesley O'Brien. This has been a long time coming, to put it lightly. Now, what's the bloodiest image of Razor's Edge I can find? Why yes, that'll do.
