Kotaku has just taken note of further classification news today, stating that The Walking Dead only warranted an MA15+.
The bestselling, game-of-the-year material adventure game series was never submitted for classification in Australia back in April of last year.
A post on the Telltale forums indicated that the reason was due to our arcane and restrictive classification system, but it seems that such hesitation was unnecessary.
Furthermore, the game never came out in New Zealand, which got caught in the crossfire of Australia’s ratings system one last time, as it was grouped into the ANZ region and denied a release in spite of its R18+ rating.
Regardless, it’s great news for gamers everywhere.
