Mary Skelter 2 Banned in Australia

Idea Factory International have confirmed that Mary Skelter has been banned from sale in Australia.

The news comes via Twitter, as one user asked the company that since the game was not getting a Steam release, would it still be sold in Australia and New Zealand. Their answer was not hopeful:

“Hi there! Unfortunately we cannot release in Australia because the age rating was not accepted :(“

While the game’s prequel Mary Skelter: Nightmare was rated R18+, it seems something in Mary Skelter has run afoul of the Australian censors.

Other games to recently get banned in Australia include We Happy Few for the second time, and Kingdom Come: Deliverance, despite initially having a rating of R 18+. Back in July 2018, Australian Senator and leader of the Australian Liberal Democrats David Leyonhjelm proposed a bill to the Australian government to prevent video games from being banned in the region.

Mary Skelter 2 is launching for Nintendo Switch on October 22nd in North America and on October 23rd in Europe. The game will be getting a physical release via Limited Run games on November 26th.
