Dark Souls II Bosses Kind Of Spoiled By The ESRB

Don’t read on if you want to be surprised, but we have some more details about the bosses in Dark Souls II thanks to the ESRB description.




You are about to go over the cliff…



Dark Souls II reportedly has a "giant snake boss holding a severed head" and "a giant boss creature composed of hundreds of corpses."  Giant rats return along with the usual ghouls, zombies, and skeletons you would expect from a Souls game.


This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of an undead fighter in the realm of Drangleic. Players traverse dungeon-like settings and battle a variety of fantastical enemies (e.g., ghouls, zombies, skeletons, giant rats) to gain souls. Players use knives, swords, and arrows to defeat enemies. Combat is highlighted by cries of pain and small splashes of blood. Some locations depict instances of blood and gore: a giant snake boss holding its severed head; a giant boss creature composed of hundreds of corpses; dead ogres near a pool of blood; a torture device with streaks of blood. During the course of the game, a boss creature appears partially topless (e.g. hair barely covering breasts). The words ‘bastard’ and “pr*ck” can be heard in the dialogue.

    Sounds pretty much what you expect from Dark Souls.

    I’d love to see a next-gen version of Legion from Castlevania.

      If you want a good castlevania you should ask Ganbarion to do it

    “a giant boss creature composed of hundreds of corpses.”

    Hello, Castlevania. Except that we can probably expect this boss to be far more difficult.

      To be honest, I was thinking more about: http://a.mangawolf.info/manga/p/436/16267/13.jpg ~.

        Really can’t wait for this game. Already got my masochist hat on.

      Nito came back! You can’t kill what’s already dead

        You can’t kill what doesn’t live, but you can still blow them to pieces, as the Quake manual taught us.

    Useless ESRB

  • Kornelious

    Still trying to figure out how this got a T rating and Conception 2 got a M rating ……

    • The Watcher

      Does it really matter?

      • Kornelious

        Not really just curious is all…

    • Cybersteelex

      Usually Sexual Content > Violence/Gore

  • Joshelplex

    How did this even get a T rating anyways? The content and violence level are basically the same, so is the ESRB caring less about the impaling, dismemberment and the bloodstains now?

  • fairysun

    A giant boss creature composed of hundreds of corpses …. hmmm ….that rings a bell …

  • Cybersteelex

    Quelaag type bosses :3

  • Lloyd Christmas

    Snakes… why did it have to be snakes?

  • Samsara09

    lol,bravely default got a T for some random shit taken out of context and this game got a T for things that clearly qualify as M.The one who should go over the cliff is ESRB.This is ridiculous.

    • kthanxyousuck

      WAIT. Bravely Default is rated T? LOL I never even noticed that. Wow.

  • Audie Bakerson

    “hair barely covering breasts”

    OK, so reason it’s only a T is NOT that it doesn’t have anything like that.

    The only difference I can think of is that there is no mention of human enemies, but we know you can still attack merchants and invading is still in, so hmm.

  • DarkLight

    But they didn’t rate it yet.Wow.
