Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable PC Version Rated

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable has recently been rated for PC in Korea.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 combines elements of traditional role-playing games and simulation games. The game follows the protagonist characters, balancing their daily lives of going to school and building relationships with other people by fighting evil beings known as Shadows during the mysterious Dark Hour.

The franchise’s games have never been very sensitive as they usually dwell in a peak fantasy experience, but due to blood and gore, imagery, violence, adult content, and a few other minor variables, it gets pushed a bit higher in its age ratings.

This leads us to Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable, which has officially received a rating in Korea for an imminent PC version, suggesting a release of the game on PC soon. The game has been rated “Available for 15 Years Old” due to minor elements of drugs, violence, and money, something the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona games are somewhat notorious for.

The specific reasons stated by the Game Management Committee in Korea include “limited sensationalism (exposure of the body)” and “limited violence (expression of partial blood).” Hence, the game was rated for 15 years old and above players, “Therefore, Article 21 of the Game Industry Promotion Act and Classification Decided to classify as ‘Available for 15 Years Old’ in accordance with Article 7, No. 3 of the Regulations.”

The reception of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 was mainly positive; critics enjoyed its many social elements, while some found its combat and environments extremely grindy and repetitive. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable, as the name suggests, was meant to be for portable consoles, such as the PlayStation Portable. However, it’s unsure as to why it was rated for PC in Korea.

Although the reason for this rating is purely based on social impacts and cultural aspects, the committee also looks at the addiction factors. Considering all the factors that take place in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona games, it is actually quite difficult to give it an exact rating as the game is interpreted differently by different people.
