Square Enix starts grown-up games label

Extreme Edges to publish violent titles.

Square Enix has announced a new sub-label for its Japanese localisations of violent, Western-developed games.

Dubbed Extreme Edges, the new label will be applied to Square Enix games that receive Japan's CERO D or Z content ratings (roughly comparable to PEGI 16+ and 18+ ratings, respectively).

This is expected to include upcoming Japanese releases from Square Enix subsidiary Eidos, but also many Activision games, which Square Enix publishes in Japan.

The label will launch on 6th May with the Japanese release of a new map pack for the PS3 version of Modern Warfare 2.

No word yet on whether the new branding will also show up on the Western releases of these games.
