Enter Dynamic Zan: Nintendo of Japan's first M-rated game

In the past, Nintendo of America has published a few second party M-rated games in the US like Eternal Darkness and Geist. Nintendo of Japan has come close with a few Cero Cs (Japan's equivalent to a T-rating in the States) like Fatal Frame IV and Disaster: Day of Crisis, but that's as far as they've gone. That's why the release of Zangeki No Reginleiv (referred to as Dynamic Zan for western audiences) is such a milestone. As you probably gathered from the headline, Dynamic Zan is the first game from NoJ to carry a Cero D rating, which means "M for Mature" in Japan. It's set to be released in February of 2010.

From that 16 second long video, it's hard to tell exactly why the game's getting such a strong rating. From what I've read though, the game has more than it's fair share of decapitations and disembowelments. Better yet, it's coming from the development team behind the cult hit Earth Defense Force 2017 on the Xbox 360, so fans of schlocky good times can rest assured that Dynamic Zan wont disappoint.

The game features gigantic monsters, hundreds of different types of weapons, and four player simultaneous online co-op. That could do well to lure in the million-or-so Japanese gamers who bought Monster Hunter 3 last August. The game certainly doesn't look like it cost a lot to make, which leads me to think that there is a good chance that NoJ will at least break even on this one. Oh, and if you like scans, I threw a couple in the gallery. They show a few of the playable characters, and the enormous size of some of the games enemies.

So what do you think? Could Dynamic Zan go on to become another timeless Nintendo classic?
