    Many top selling games are M rated and I know of no stores reluctant to sell them. Wal-Mart has gone back on it's policy and sell GTA now. The only restriction for M rated games is prohibited sale to minors, which is only store policy.

    Is the article not confusing M with AO (adults only)? Stores won't sell AO games, of which none have been made.

    And DOX2 was rated M, and showed way more skin than this game.

    Wait, this is an M rated game or an AO rated game? There are tons of M rated games out there. All the Resident Evil and Grand Theft Auto Games are rated M and places like Wal-Mart, Target, Gamestop and Best Buy sell these games. I'm pretty sure the ESRB just doesn't want a repeat of the Hot Coffee incident.

    And if you want proof that Americans get all pissy about sex and nudity and don't mind violence too much, watch the South Park episode "Good Times With Weapons".

    It was rated M but the holding company seems to be throwing a fuss about it. They wanted a Teen Rating but since it got an M they want to scrap overseas distribution rather than have a toned down Teen Rated version.

    Well, that's stupid. So what if its an M-rated game? I've been playing M-rated games since I was 13! Valcon is just being stupid.

    You know, Dead or Alive somehow managed to get a T rating... though I've not seen any of this game's content, the description certainly suggests nothing racier than was in there.

    Of course the bosom-juggling in that one was so extreme as to be comical rather than erotic, really.

    If they are intelligent enough they will put an "english language" option in the menu and make a few more copies for importers, that way even english speaking users will fully enjoy the game.

    This is because America is more sexphobic than it is afraid of violence and such. Everyone sees nudity at some point, especially since we have to be naked to do things like shower. It's an all natural part of life. Ripping someone's arm off and beating them over the head with it is not so nice but we'd rather see that than a nipple. I hate our backwards morals. Maybe if we loosened up a bit we'd be happier.

    Though I could always go for some exaggerated breast jiggling myself.

    When is the ESRB gonna learn that the majority of boys learn to fap in their early of before they even reach their TEENS? Teens need to fap. If only they didn't have to feel so wrong about it.

    How funny. In the Sega Saturn game, Fighting Vipers there were several Female characters who you could strip down to nearly nothing by destryoying their armor, and how about Soul Calibur? The Breasts in that game Jiggle nearly as much as they do in Dead or Alive.

    Sounds like the publishers just got lazy to me.

    I didn't even know about this game before this. :P I hope they end up releasing it uncensored with an M rating at least.

    But it won't make a lot of money, especially since you can pretty much bet it won't show up at Wal-Mart.

    "All the female characters are dressed in short skirts or skirts with a high slit. The game features frequent depictions of panties, cleavage, and exaggerated breast jiggle. A special attack move allows some characters to rip opponents’ clothes to shreds - exposing even more of the female anatomy (legs, breasts, partial buttocks)."

    WTF? The reasons why they gave it an M basically EXACTLY describes other games already on the american market that have a T rating, like SOUL CALIBUR 4. If they can be released with a T then why can't Ikkitousen? That's just majorly FUCKED UP.

    I say they just release it uncensored but with the M rating. Dead or Alive 4 had it and it sold well. I would have liked that option in the poll.

    What did this game get rated in Japan?

    I think it's interesting how they are reluctant to release an M rated game, and yet 96% of the poll says they'll only buy the uncensored version.. bad marketing judgement? I'd say there's more than enough "Mature" guys to buy this game, should they ever release it as it is.

    I've heard of this kind of thing happening with AO ratings, but this is the first time I've heard of M rated games having a hard time getting on shelves...

    AOs aren't going to be on display in major markets that don't specifically deal in sex-related things anyway, so they already know what's what about that. Ikkitousen, however, is far more known for its echiness than insane fights; you can bet most people that pick up the title aren't looking for an engaging storyline or the actual gameplay.

    It's just a really expensive excuse to see big-titted girls get naked. I bet there's not one selectable non-boss guy in the whole game.

    An M rating wouldn't have done anything to the title. Every game store sells M rated games. This more on the lines of the company not wanting to release it as such.

    I wasn't even expecting this game to come to the US, this would be the only game I would want play from this publisher if it's not censored, on their site every other game is just whatever.

    Even if they're aiming for a T rating it still wouldn't sell well. And I'm sure the diehard Ikkitousen fan already has a import, or a burnt copy.

    Something isn't right when "jiggly breasts" are given the same rating as "severing an enemy's testicles by pulling a sickle between his legs" and "stabbing an enemy in the back with a crowbar, following it up by jamming it into the enemy's head, wiggling it in the skull, and finally prying the head off from the spine" (from the game Manhunt).

    most obvious is the Grand Theft Auto argument i suppose. that franchise has always pushed the line with game ratings and im surprised they havent passed M yet. With that said,the franchise has never had real trouble generating profit off their famous products and i believe that either the japanese company that produces ikkitousen didnt want to fight harder for their game's release or couldnt afford to. Probably being sold on a near obsolete model console(ps2 is somewhat phased out at this time lol) didnt help either. It really shouldnt and probably couldnt of been the pure violence vs sexual conflict,but more so a well thought out pro con decision.

    Well I think it's a bit pointless to censor a game which has been promoted almost completely on the breasts that move, the clothes that are torn apart and panchira...
    I mean you don't watch Ikkitousen or Queen's blade only for its story or you'd be lying, you watch it also because you can see all of this so why the fuck would you want to censor it if it's done specically for all this?
    But I guess it was more or less predictable ... Unnecessary but predictable ... -_-'

    Because much like Famitsu and Cero ratings for game quality and age ratings it all depends on who and how much you pay.
