What Are “Lady Boners” Doing In Etrian Odyssey IV?

The ESRB have published their rating for Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan. The game has received a T (Teen) rating with content descriptors like Mild Blood, Mild Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, and Mild Suggestive Themes. Here’s the rating summary:


This is a role-playing game in which players control a group of fighters that explore fantastical labyrinths. Players engage in turn-based combat against a variety of fantasy creatures (e.g., large insects, slime creatures, sorcerers), selecting moves from a menu-based set of options. Attack moves are accompanied by light effects, bashing sounds, and hit point values. One labyrinth contains a hallway and a door that is stained with blood; a bear is also depicted with red stains on its fur and claws. A few female characters are depicted wearing bikini/low-cut tops that expose deep cleavage; one line of suggestive dialogue states, ‘I gotta lady boner harder dan steel for dat stuff!’ The words “bastard,” “damn,” and “hell” appear in dialogue.


Lady…boner…? Sounds like Atlus USA had their fun localizing the game. We’ll get to see their work come February 26th, which is when Etrian Odyssey IV reaches North America.
