Drake's Ratings Roundup - June 2008

As we don't usually create a news article for each new game that gets a rating, we thought it would be a good idea to do a monthly roundup listing each game rated by every ratings board to keep you up to date.

Here is a quick explanation of the different rating boards which we track:

ESRB rated: The ESRB stands for Entertainment Software Rating Board and is North America's rating board. Anything that's ESRB rated should be released on the American Virtual Console.

OFLC rated: The OFLC stands for Office of Film and Literature Classification and is the rating board for Australia. This means that any game that's OFLC rated should be coming out in Australia, but because Europe and Australia usually get identical releases on the VC.

USK rated: The USK stands for Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (German for Voluntary Monitoring Organisation of Entertainment Software) and is Germany's ratings board.

PEGI rated: PEGI stands for Pan European Game Information. They are another European ratings board. Usually they don’t reveal ratings until the game in questions comes out, but sometimes they can slip through the net before being hidden again from public sight.

So with that out of the way, here's what got rated in the past two months that hasn't yet been released in the region the rating belongs to:

ESRB rated:

OFLC rated:

USK rated:

PEGI rated:

  • Nothing new got rated the last two months for VC.

That's all that was rated recently which isn't out yet. Clearly the US is a bit slower with getting rated games out! It should also be noted that Hudson's VC site lists the following TurboGrafx-16 games as being released in the US in July:

Most of these should most likely be coming soon. Which of these would you like to see first?
