    Hmm, less people will play it because of the rating but then more people will play it because of the rating. Probably more people that will be turned off (i.e. kids who can't get their parents to allow them to play) so it's probably a good thing because it raises the average age and reduces the amounts of kids, though probably not by a big percentage.
    Also helps that parents usually are more against their kids consuming media with anything overly sexual in it than they are against violence.

    Though for the title itself, M rating sounds good. I'd be concerned if it would get past that because when titles get past that rating it is rarely out of necessity to tell a good story or enhance gameplay but mostly just to show off guts & gore for the splatter fans and the kinds that think it's the height of awesome.
    Same for sexual themes, M rating means they don't need to pull punches and can gives us these kind of outfits (though admittedly some decent female clothing that does not reveal a large amount of skin would be nice once in a while) but it's still a log way from emphasizing sexual theme like e.g. that nude mmorpg where girls with boobs bigger than their heads run around showing off just about everything.

    Both would just distract from the actual story and gameplay if it was enough for an 18 and up rating

    M rating never stopped kids before. Far from it. What will stop them and parents is the overly sexualised stuff. Its why they are putting in censorship for our version. Likely why the ability to create lolis was the first to go.

    Thats our culture. Most parents are fine with violence, gore, dismemberment, but throw a loli in a g string doing a stripper dance in there? Then they raise holy hell. Shame that they are censoring far more than that. Id have been just fine with loli removal.

    Kids are not the problem. The kids who like to scream and cause trouble are busy with pvp-oriented games, like MOBAs and non-story FPSes. At worst, you'll just meet a kid who asks for freebies (meseta/equipment), or who constantly asks "What's the best class?" while still in the tutorial part of the game and then complain about being misinformed when they cannot match performances of more experienced players. But this behaviour is not really limited to kids.

    Though I will be looking forward (in a sarcastic way) to see chat in Battle Arenas in the West version.

    I still remember PSO on the OG XBOX with kids popping-in my game when I didn't have 4 players. They were running around me when I was I trying to kill enemies just asking with their high pitch voices "Got any rare items you can give me". Half the time after telling them no, they flipped me-off and left while the other half, they didn't leave and I had to leave a create a locked game.

    Back in PSO era MOBAs didn't exist and PvP-oriented FPSes like Quake and Unreal Tournament were very limited for internet play (like 4-people matches) and mostly experienced in netcafes. The only games I remember pre-2010 are the original Dota and Counterstrike. Kids back then (which are now people in their 20s to 30s), when they had access to the internet, were exploring more games than just those 2, so they "leaked" into slower-paced games like RPGs. Nowadays this will not be as prevalent because the majority of vocal bad-behaved kids is attracted to games with PvP and ranking systems with leaderboards.

    I am not saying they will not exist; I am saying they will exist but at a lesser degree than back then.

    They're all butchered versions of Rico's outfit.
    She's pretty much the "Kawaii" Red Ring Rico of PSO2. Just... not as great.

    This is Innocent Cluster though.
    Not-So Innocent.
