Computer Entertainment Rating Organization (CERO) is the organization that rates video game and computer software in Japan with levels of rating that informs the customer of the nature of the product and for what age group it is suitable.


The old CERO Rating System
All Ages

Ages 12 and up

Ages 15 and up

Ages 18 and up

The symbols the CERO uses are stylized depictions of numbers, meant to convey at a glance a game's suitability:

  • A All ages (Equivalent to the ESRB's EVERYONE and PEGI's 3+ and 7+)
  • B Ages 12 and up (Equivalent to the ESRB's TEEN and PEGI's 12+)
  • C Ages 15 and up (Equivalent to the PEGI's 16+)
  • D Ages 17 and up (Equivalent to the ESRB's MATURE)
  • Z Ages 18 and up Only(Equivalent to the ESRB's ADULTS ONLY and PEGI's 18+)

One of the symbols above is displayed on the front of the package. This mark is the notation of the age suitability based on the contents.
