Seven titles in all were Refused Classification in Australia during 2009, and while the public was aware of six, the name of the seventh banned game is only coming to light now.
The Refused-Classification website names the seventh banned title as Enzai: Falsely Accused, a 2002 Japanese anime-style game released in Japan in 2002 and in the U.S. in 2006. The game was submitted for classification by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) with no-name in order to thwart any undue attention being showered upon it. The name of the title was revealed in the Classification Board’s Annual Report.
Here’s why it was given an RC rating:
In the Board’s view this computer game warrants an RC classification as it contains depictions of sexual violence that depict matters of sex and violence in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that it should not be classified. It also contains descriptions and depictions of child sexual abuse involving a person who is, or who appears to be, a child under 18 years.
Refused-Classification notes that while no game submitted by a distributor has been banned yet in 2010, another game submitted by the AMCA was. The name of that title will also remain unknown unless the Classification Board decides to name it in next year’s report.
American cover art for the game, which appeared to receive the rarely-utilized “Adults Only” (AO) rating stateside (though it doesn’t show up in the ESRB database), is shown.
The other six titles Refused Classification in 2009 were: Necrovision, Sexy Poker, Risen, Left 4 Dead 2, Crimecraft, And Alien Vs. Predator.
