Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition Is Heading Down Under At Last

Posted by Damien McFerran

Classification finally comes through

Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition has been available almost everywhere since the launch of the Wii U, but poor old Australia has been missing out.

Thankfully, the wait is almost over — the Australian Classification Board has just rated the game, meaning that it's on its way.

We've got no date for release as yet, but if you've already studied our Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition review you'll be aware that it's worth the wait.

Any Australians out there looking forward to this one? Let us know by posting a comment below.

It probably takes longer now that games have an extra rating classification... Seriously, it wouldn't surprise me if all games now have go to a separate department for reviewing for R content... And it has to run the gauntlet down through to G...

That's absurd. There is no separate "classification department" on the basis of classification category. Classification board members are expected to be able to assign a classification to a game or film regardless of the strength of its content.

The only other department is the "classification review board" which looks at classifications that an applicant hopes to change (which was often the case with publishers wanting to challenge a banned game).

There is a ridiculous amount of games being rated R18+ now, including a Vita port of a PS3 game which was originally rated PG!
