At the beginning of last April it was revealed that the Japan Computer Entertainment Rating Organization had planned temporarily suspend activity due to coronavirus.
As many of you may know, this organization, known as ZERO, is in charge of classifying games by age in Japanese territory. This organization ceased operations since last April 8
Obviously, this announcement caused a stir on the Internet, since this company was in charge of giving a rating to the games based on the recommended ages and, when temporarily ceasing its activity, it was not known what would happen to those games that were to be released but have not received their corresponding ranking. For this reason, they were expected delays in numerous games
Well, recently thanks to the Twitter account of @Nibellion we have been able to know that CERO will resume its activity on May 7 with better health measures for staff.

It is certainly good news. Meanwhile, it's worth noting that featured games from Nintendo such as Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, The Island of Pokemon Sword and Shield armor or 51 Worldwide Games because in these three cases they have already been classified by ZERO previously. However, other releases scheduled for the future may be affected.
