Record Of Agarest War 2 As Described By The ESRB

71M62snue6L._AA1280_I wonder what thoughts the ESRB reviewers have whenever they examine a Compile Heart title. Record of Agarest War 2, like the other games in the series, is infused with innuendo and bizarre banana use. Extra features like the PlayStation Move massage mini-game made the cut for a T-rating.

 

Here’s what the ESRB has to say about Aksys’ upcoming RPG.

 

This is a fantasy role-playing game in which players control a hero who must restore balance in a magical land. Players explore towns, travel along map points, and fight humans and creatures in turn-based combat. Action sequences consist of selecting weapons and attacks (Ice Vein, Trick Hit, Rushing Jaeger, Drop Dead, etc.) from a menu screen; damage is indicated by slashing sounds, light effects, and floating hit points above characters’ heads. The game depicts several female characters whose breasts/buttocks are partially obscured by hot-spring mist and soap suds.

 

During some bathhouse sequences, players can engage in massage-based mini-games, applying oil or foodstuffs (e.g., bananas, mushrooms, popsicles) to the bodies of bikini-clad women. One related achievement is called Ecstasy Time. Other still-frame images depict female characters in provocative poses (e.g., women hiding behind bed sheets; two characters eating a banana together) or engaging in suggestive dialogue: “Bigger is better, right?” The words “sh*t” and “a*shole” appear in dialogue.

    Is this still getting a teen rating? The PEGI version of Zero is already upped to 16+, so I bet this will be like 18+ over here. That, or banned for underage massaging

    Its official. The ESRB is trolling. They’re looking at the games Compile Heart makes and say “Well we don’t see any actual tits or ass, and while there is a massive amount of innuendo nothing explicate is said. T FOR TEEN!”
