Sega Australia has confirmed that the Classification Review Board has overturned the original decision to Refuse Classification for Aliens vs Predator and has given it an MA15+ rating.
Sega Australia’s Managing Director, Darren Macbeth, said, “It is with great pleasure that we announce the success of our appeal. We are particularly proud that the game will be released in its original entirety, with no content altered or removed whatsoever.”
“This is a big win for Australian gamers. We applaud the Classification Review Board on making a decision that clearly considers the context of the game, and is in line with the modern expectations of reasonable Australians,” added Macbeth.
As previously written by Smarthouse, the Classification gave the game a Refused Classification for its “Depictions of violence such as the above are accompanied by copious amounts of blood and gore, including ample wound details and visible skeleton.”
Sega says that local Special Edition offers will be announced at a later date.
