German rating board USK rates Final Fantasy Type-0 HD aged 12+

Despite the ESRB rating of M/Mature, the German age rating board USK rated Final Fantasy Type-0 HD for players aged 12+.

The ESRB previously complained:

"Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large blood-splatter effects; some sequences depict blood stains on players' screen and corpses lying in pools of blood. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a man stabbing himself with a sword; a girl shot by a sniper; a character shot close-up. During the course of the game, some female characters are depicted in outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage and jiggling breasts. In one sequence, players can use a spy camera to zoom in on a female character wearing a bikini. The game includes event scenes in which a character sedates/drugs players' character and performs unknown acts on them; it is implied that some of these acts may be of a sexual nature."

As mentioned in the end of the article its yet unknown whether Square Enix made cuts in the game to get that USK 12 rating. The article just retells the ESRB's reasons.
