Dead Rising 3 has become one of the first games to receive the Australian Classification Board’s elusive R18+ ratings, ostensibly due to its “high impact” violence and gore, “strong impact” sex and “moderate impact” nudity.

Saints Row 4 only just released a few days ago here due to the cut necessary.

Killer Instinct will be a free download with extra fighters costing £3.99/€4.99 each or through the Killer Instinct Combo Breaker pack for £16.99/€19.99. Thanks, CGR Trailers.

Killer Instinct will have a playable character in it that is some sort of “spider woman,” according to a video which was posted and then pulled by GameTrailers. EventHubs spotted it before the pull and has screencaps of the lady on its site. She appeared during a combo clop trailer, which is why her section of it only lasts 14 seconds. Her identity is a mystery at present, and it’s unknown if she is a new character or a redesign of an older one – like with Chief Thunder. Killer Instinct will be a free download with extra fighters costing £3.99/€4.99 each or through the Killer Instinct Combo Breaker pack for £16.99/€19.99.
