Strange, but if this is true, it would be one of the few Nintendo exclusive games to have M rating.

If this is true my guess would be because of the language used in the game. There might quite alot of profanity (although I haven’t noticed it in the beta).

Also, some of the subject matter. It is pretty dark and adultish.

From what I heard the Australian ratings differ from the US ones.
If I'm not mistaken, it is the same as a T rating in the US.
Even though the game has dark themes and suggestive dialogue ("...go pleasure yourself." Come to mind, lol.) I still it's tame enough for a T rating.
IMO, I don't mind either way.
