The ESRB just rated Devil Survivor Overclocked this past week, which means it’s the second time they’re perusing the game, in a sense.
Overclocked got a Teen rating just like the original DS game, but for fun, we dug up the older game’s rating to compare the two:
Devil Survivor Overclocked
This is a strategy role-playing game in which players battle demons that have overrun Tokyo. From a 3/4–overhead perspective, players use guns, swords, and magical spells to engage demons and human characters in turn-based combat (e.g., selecting attacks/weapons from a menu screen); enemies disappear when defeated. During one sequence, a police officer summons a demon to kill a suspected thief (e.g., “I’m sorry . . . but you get the death penalty . . . Die! Die! Die!” and “Did a policeman really just . . . kill that guy . . .?”); the man is briefly depicted lying in a small pool of blood. A handful of other scenes contain similar portrayals of blood and violence. During the course of the game, some female characters are depicted in outfits that expose moderate amounts of cleavage; players can also access a gallery mode in which some creatures appear to be partially nude, though these images contain no discernible details (i.e., nipples or genitalia). The words “d*ck,” “pr*ck,” and “a*s” can be heard in the dialogue.
This is a role-playing game (RPG) in which players battle demons that have overrun Tokyo. The majority of gameplay involves navigating through menus and triggering events that advance the storyline about escaping or stopping the demons. Combat is turn-based, as players select from several attacking, guarding, or defensive moves. In two instances, small pools of blood form around the bodies of fallen citizens. The blood quickly disappears as the storyline continues. During the course of the game, some female demons are depicted wearing outfits that expose deep cleavage; other demons are dressed in fur that barely covers their breasts or pelvic regions. Characters frequently use expletives (e.g., ‘a*s,’ ‘pr*ck,’ ‘damn,’ and ‘hell’) in the dialogue.
Devil Survivor Overclocked is due out on August 23rd. Devil Survivor 2 will follow early next year.
