In a move which may been seen to combat the increasing criticisms of microtransactions aimed at the young, Tecmo Koei is to introduce spending limits in its games for those under 20 in Japan.
As reported by Silicon Era, the publisher of Dead or Alive will only allow $50 a month to be spent by under 15s, with the 16-19 year old age bracket being limited to a maximum of $200 a month. No restrictions will apply to players of 20 and up.
The system is due to be added to Tecmo Koei's games in Japan before the year's end. There's no news yet as to whether this will become a global policy.
