Our aim is to enable everyone to purchase and enjoy computer and video games free from concerns about content.
As the technology of household game consoles advances and the age brackets of game consumers expand, computer and video games have been diversified both in content and expressions. Given this trend, social requirements have intensified, and a typical requirement is related to the influence that the content of a game may have on young people. To fulfill those social needs, the Computer Entertainment Rating Organization (abbreviated as CERO) was founded in June 2002. CERO is operated independently of any specific corporation or organization for the sake of fairness.
CERO was accredited as a specified nonprofit corporation by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government in December 2003.
Indication of "Age Classification": Consumers can use an indication of age classification as a piece of information when deciding to purchase computer and video games. Everyone can purchase games with little concern over selection and thereby fully enjoy them. Note: "Age classification" denotes that the content and expressions included in the game are suitable only for individuals the indicated age and above.
