Hyperdimension Neptunia’s Slightly Dirty ESRB Description

By Spencer . December 29, 2010 . 8:31am


Hyperdimension Neptunia jokes with the video game industry or should I say Gamindustri by making Arforie the main enemy. NIS America’s localization is also bursting with toilet humor and boob references, according to this ESRB description.


This is a role-playing game in which players control a young goddess trying to unite other goddesses to fight evil forces. Players engage in turn-based battles and use swords, claws, over-sized syringes, and colorful light attacks to fight fantastical enemies (e.g., robots, bats, blob-like monsters); damage is indicated by the loss of hit points. Some goddess characters are depicted in low-cut outfits that expose a lot of cleavage; a photo gallery also contains images of female characters in revealing outfits (e.g., tops that barely cover characters’ breasts). Dialogue frequently references characters’ breasts (e.g., "Hey, don’t grab someone’s breasts from behind," "One grope of Compa’s left boob and we’ll call it even," and "Where are your two slutty girlfriends?"). In one cutscene, there is an extended reference to bathroom humor (e.g., "I’m all outta TP . . . can you leave me a roll by the door?" and "Man, that was a doozy . . . I dropped a pound. I hope Iffy won’t be too mad about the clog."). The words "sh*t," "t*t," and "b*tch" appear in the dialogue.


That sounds like… a lot of groping.

    I love ERSB reports… They’re always hilarious for so many reasons…

      I’d suspect it’s because the ESRB still assigns genres of games to teams based upon the interests of said teams. The folks who write the descriptions enjoy what they are playing.

    Looking at this is almost as if the ESRB is complimenting NISA’s dirty games. :)

    Now let’s wait for Ar Tonelico Qoga’s description!

      After watching a few YouTube videos of battle gameplay for AT.. I can only imagine how it will be worded!

    • M’iau M’iaut

      “sh*t,” “t*t,” and “b*tch”

          paraphrased(taken) from dictionary.com
          1) A small child
          2) A small measure of spirits

          1)to total as in: totted up the bill

          • Testsubject909

      And so, on the next Tiger Woods, you’ll see the following….

      “Players can use a variety of real world golf gear from Nike, Ping and T*tleist.”

    “Man, that was a doozy . . . I dropped a pound. I hope Iffy won’t be too mad about the clog.”

    How… unladylike.

      “D*mn it, I gotta go p*ss like a racehorse.”

  • FireCouch
