The Director of the Classification Board, Ms Lesley O'Brien announced today that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge was the first computer game in Australia to be classified R 18+ in the newly created adult category.

The Classification Board classified the game R 18+ (Restricted) with consumer advice of ‘High impact bloody violence'.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is an action adventure game for the Nintendo Wii U console in which players assume the role of Ryu Hayabusa, a cursed ninja battling a terrorist organisation.

Ms O'Brien said computer games classified R 18+ are legally restricted to adults.
