Sorry Australia, No Deadly Premonition For You

Despite the press release last week stating that Deadly Premonition would be coming to PAL regions, it appears as if Rising Star Games weren't completely clear on which PAL regions.
Speaking to Australian Gamer, Rising Star Games told the site, "As part of our normal procedures in submitting any game for classification, it was determined internally at Rising Star Games that the game would not satisfy the criteria for an MA15+ rating in Australia and further that any changes to the game would not be possible. It was therefore decided, with regret, the game will not be released in Australia."
If you were an Australian hoping that the you could sample a truly Marmite game that has for the most part split the critics, it looks like you're going to have to import... I mean, miss out. Another victim of the non-existant 18+ age rating category it seems.
