If you thought Twilight Princes was Nintendo’s attempt at the whole “Dark and Gritty” aesthetic, you haven’t seen anything yet. Apparently the bright and almost cartoonish looking Breath of the Wild is going to be much dark than anyone expected. So much so that the game is going to be rated M for Mature….
In Australia were the rating more akin to a T here in the states.
Sorry about the bait and switch there, but it was too good an opportunity to pass up. But yes, the upcoming Nintendo game has been rated M by the Australian rating board for “Moderately Impactful Fantasy Violence”. While i’m sure some were hoping that the cheerful look of the game was hiding some dark and gruesome secret up its sleeve, it would appear the game will be business as usual. Personally, i think that will be for the best.
