As we know, Minecraft has now spread all over the world. Where as a whole the game can be played by anyone, including children because it can be considered as an educational medium.

But unfortunately, this does not apply to South Korea. Where Minecraft in that country gets an adult rating of 19+. This rating itself applies because of the regulations that the country applies.

For those of you who don’t know, the law can apply because of the Cinderella law. Launching from GamezIndustry.bizThe law, named Cinderella, contains that all children and adolescents under 16 years are prohibited from playing online games from 12 pm to 6 am.

Not a new law, this Cinderella Law has been created since 2011. Because of this, Microsoft inevitably has to provide an age limit for players in South Korea who want to create a new account.

But unfortunately, the rules made by Microsoft are also quite easy to trick. The good news is that Microsoft is now known to have tightened this rule and made the game really apply to adult ratings.

Now, Minecraft players in South Korea who want to buy the game must have a Microsoft account and must pass the age verification stage where the age limit is 19 years.

Furthermore, the adult rating for Minecraft was also protested by most players. Where they are known to have created a petition to protest this and aim to change this policy.
