Final Fantasy XVI has been given a provisional PEGI 18 rating, according to a label found in a recent email Square Enix sent to subscribers.

This provisional placeholder could mean a potential ESRB M rating in North America.

Read the official description of the 18 rating from PEGI:


The adult classification is applied when the level of violence reaches a stage where it becomes a depiction of gross violence, apparently motiveless killing, or violence towards defenceless characters. The glamorisation of the use of illegal drugs and of the simulation of gambling, and explicit sexual activity should also fall into this age category.
