As expected, the ESRB rated Trinity Universe with “T” for teen rating. Unless you find peg-legged penguins squawking about hard liquor irksome, NIS America’s game won’t be controversial. What’s amusing to read is how the ESRB dryly sets up some of the game’s boob jokes.
This is a fantasy role-playing game in which players control a group of characters as they attempt to prevent evil forces from destroying their world. Players use swords and magic to battle humans, skeletons, and demons in turn-based combat. Sword slashes are accompanied by grunts of pain, cascading light effects, and hit points that rise above injured characters.
Characters sometimes engage in suggestive dialogue, including several references to breast size; for example, "I’ll be able to pay sexy, curvy women to stand by me," "I’m SO sorry for having a flat chest," and "Don’t be so arrogant just ‘cuz you’ve got big, bouncy t*ts!" The dialogue contains references to liquor or being drunk; for example, "I just want some liquor," "he’s a total alcoholic" and "Peace is the best for enjoying gratuitous amounts of hard liquor, dood." The words "sh*t," "b*tch," and a*s" can also be heard in dialogue.
More of that and the screenshots below next month when Trinity Universe is released in North America.
