The Nintendo Direct last week went out with a bang - revealing Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was coming to Switch this September.

Now that the secret is out, the game has been rated by the classification board in Australia. It's received a classification of 'M' for 'Mature' and contains "fantasy themes and violence". This 'M' rating lines up with the local ratings given to Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

And here's a bit about the game, in case you missed the announcement last week:

"A vast world awaits in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the next game in the acclaimed RPG series from developer MONOLITHSOFT. Players will step into the roles of protagonists Noah and Mio amid turmoil between the hostile nations of Keves and Agnus. Six characters hailing from those nations will take part in a grand tale with “life” as its central theme. Explore a new world that will connect the futures of both Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, launching for Nintendo Switch in September 2022."
