Hotline Miami 2 Refused Classification in AU

Kotaku Australia reports that Hotline Miami 2 has been refused classification in Australia, meaning the game will not be sold in the region. After years of wrangling, Australia recently added an R18+ rating for mature games, but word the serial killer sequel's inclusion of a scene where a character is "implicitly" raped goes too far, and this "visual depiction of implied sexual violence" has resulted in this situation. They say developer Dennaton says they are considering reworking the game, though the story also notes that these complaints are not "an exhaustive list" of reasons the game was refused classification.
