Koei Tecmo Implements Micro-Transaction Spending Limits in Games for Japan

December 6, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

Koei Tecmo has introduced spending limits for micro-transactions in its games for those under the age of 20 in Japan. According to Silicon Era, the company will only allow $50 a month to be spent by someone under the age of 15, with the 16-19 year olds being limited to a maximum of $200 a month. No restrictions apply for players 20 years old or older.

Koei Tecmo plans to add these limits in its games in Japan before the year's end. No word on if this policy will be a global one or if it is just specific to Japan.

In case you didn't know, Koei Tecmo produces and publishes the Dead or Alive and Dynasty Warriors series.
