Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Has Been Rated “M” In Australia

Zelda: Breath Of The Wild got an official rating in Australia. The rating is “M”, with notes of mild themes and moderate fantasy violence. As for the “M” rating, in Australia it stands for Mature and “contain content of a moderate impact and are recommended for teenagers aged 15 years and over”. This is roughly the same as a “T” rating from the ESRB. It’s likely that ratings in other regions are not too far off, and if so, we’ll you know when they’re announced.

    1. Yeah…. no. Twilight Princess and even Skyward Sword both had M ratings in Australia. This means nothing.

    2. If an age rating determines how proud you feel about a game, that pretty much shows how childish and insecure about your maturity you are.

    3. um… “As for the “M” rating, in Australia it stands for Mature and “contain content of a moderate impact and are recommended for teenagers aged 15 years and over”. This is roughly the same as a “T” rating from the ESRB”

      Twilight Princess was also rated T for teen, so it’s not the first Zelda to land a T esrb. Australia must have pretty mature kids if mature is 15+ haha

  1. Will be very much akin to Twilight Princess. Nintendo going all out to make this GOTC (game of the century).

  2. Don’t games get sent in to these kind off rating agencies relatively close to release day?
    I wonder if this means the game’s release won’t be so far off.

    1. Not really; they do it much earlier so they can have an age rating in their trailers, and the actual content has to be finished by now. They just need to make it work well and asjust some things here and there, and also write the whole text. But the meat of the game is done, which is what the rating is based on.

    2. Not always. Some games get rated and dont release for months. Civ Rev 2 for the vita got rated back in may… of 2015. It didnt release till march of this year. Thats almost a whole year.

    1. What others don’t understand that our M rating isn’t equivalent to the ESRB M rating. Our M is equivalent to the T rating. Australia’s MA15+ is what the ESRB M rating equivalent is.

    1. Australian M rating is actually the equivalent to ESRB’s T for Teen. People need to understand this instead of thinking the Australian M is equal to the ESBR M.

    1. It’s like you’re scared of research, since you don’t understand M rating in Australia is not the same age range as the ESRB’s age range for M is. Australia’s M is equivalent to a T for Teen rating.

      1. I like that you are taking the time to clear misinformation, but at the same time no need to attack people cause they don’t know this obscure piece of trivia like you do.

      2. And, magcargoman, some Australian stores banned GTA V, and LFD2 was even banned at one point. Sorry if you live in Australia, but it’s the truth that they’re not as lenient with videogames as others would like.

    1. M in Australia is T in North America, M in North America is I believe AO in Australia. Our rating system makes more sense but that does not mean the ESRB rates games correctly, usually people makes fun of us ‘muricans but now it’s the other way around.

  4. There’s the problem! They’ve got it set to ‘M’, when they should have set it to “W” for Wumbo.
