Update 2: Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory has been rated "Approved for children aged 12 and above" in Germany.
Update: Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory has been rated PG in Australia for mild themes and fantasy violence, online interactivity. Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory won't be censored either.
Like most of the games in the Kingdom Hearts series, Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory has been rated E10+ in the United States by the Entertainment Software Rating Board for fantasy violence and mild language. The organisation has provided some detail behind this decision:
This is a rhythm-based game in which players help characters battle through worlds from the Kingdom Hearts series. On a scrolling track, players time button presses with musical queues in order to attack, dodge, and use magic against fantasy enemies. Animated sequences sometimes depict characters using keyblades to attack enemies in one-on-one combat; a handful of sequences involve characters being impaled—depicted off-screen or obscured by bright flashes of light. One song title contains the word “damned.”
Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year.
