Atelier Meruru Shipments Halted Due to Ratings Issue
Ratings board pulls A rating from recent PS3 title.
Gust has stopped shipments on Atelier Meruru in response to findings from ratings board CERO that the game has scenes that do not fit its "A" rating.
In a statement issued today, CERO said that it conducted an investigation after having received information that the game has visual content inappropriate for an A rating. The investigation determined that the claims were accurate. Furthermore, the offending content was not included in materials submitted by Gust during the ratings process.
As a result of the investigation, CERO has pulled the game's A rating, and Gust has halted shipments. The game will undergo rerating and will reship with the new rating mark when ready.
Released on June 23, Atelier Meruru is the third PS3 entry in the Atelier series and forms a trilogy with predecessors Atelier Rorona and Atelier Totori.
