This latest submission to the Australian Classification Board joins free-to-play fighting game Spartacus Legends and Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge for Wii U as the first group of games to receive an R18+ rating following the introduction of new classification guidelines for video games on Jan. 1, 2013.
