The Computer Entertainment Rating Organization(JP) (CERO) is a Japanese video game content rating system used for Nintendo's gaming systems starting with the Game Boy Advance and the Nintendo GameCube. It was established by the Japan-based Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association (CESA)(JP), an organization that Nintendo is a member of.
The CERO does not rate games that contain excessive sexual, violent, criminal, or indecent content. In addition to this, Nintendo hasn't allowed these types of games to be developed for their systems long before the CERO's establishment.
