The Computer Entertainment Rating Organization (CERO) has rated Kadokawa Games' R-15 Portable, the PSP adventure game based on Hiroyuki Fushimi and Takuya Fujima's R-15 light novel series, as an age 17+ game.
Kadokawa said that it had originally planned the game to be rated age 15+ (as implied by the franchise's title) and Kadokawa apologized to the game's fans for the rating.
The game's story centers around Taketo Akutagawa, a student with a secret: he is a talented pornographic novelist with a newspaper-serialized work. He enrolls in a school that only accepts geniuses, and risque trouble ensues there.
In the "Manuscript-Writing Part" of the game, the player (as Akutagawa) has seven days before the deadline for his latest novel. Meanwhile, the player also has to juggle his relationships with his fellows students in the game's "School Life Part." Depending on how much of the novel is completed and how well the player does interacting with the other students, the player can experience over 20 different endings.
