Australia is going buck wild with their new R18+ rating for video games. Free-to-play fighting game Spartacus Legends and Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge for the Wii U were the first games to receive the R18+ rating after the introduction of new classification guidelines for video games. The new guidelines started on January 1, 2013, and according to to the classification board, Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel will be the third game to receive that rating.

The Classification Board entry for The Devil's Cartel cites high impact violence and strong impact themes as the main reasons the game received the R18+ rating. Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel will launch on March 28 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Meanwhile, Mortal Kombat -- which was previously banned -- is submitting its Komplete Edition to the Classification Board for consideration under the new R18+ rating.
