Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Is T, Kojima Wishes It Was E For Everyone

imageMost Metal Gear Solid games are rated “M” by the ESRB in North America. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is shooting for a broader audience since it’s being designed as a “T” rated title.


What does that mean? No blood, but the game’s plot is still serious. Hideo Kojima explains more in a tweet.


“This time around we wanted to go for a ‘T’ rating since it’s on the PSP. There is no bloodshed effects so the younger crowd can enjoy it as well. But the MGS world and theme lives on. The script is seriously written…anti-nuke and anti-war with the nuclear deterrence theory as the backbone. Wish it could of been ‘E.’”


Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is rated CERO C in Japan, which means its for ages 15 and up. So, one of the differences between an ESRB “T” and “M” rated Metal Gear Solid game is blood. What would an “E” rated Metal Gear Solid game be like then? Would everyone carry super soakers?
