Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory’s ESRB Rating Won’t Surprise You

0

The ESRB have published their rating for Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, and the rating summary shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone that’s familiar with this series of games. The game is rated “T” and the rating summary is as follows:

 

This is a role-playing game in which players control a young goddess on a quest to return home from an alternate dimension. As players advance the storyline, they use swords, lances, guns, and colorful light attacks against fantasy creatures (e.g., plants monsters, dragons, robots). Combat is turn-based, and damage is indicated by impact sounds and a loss of hit points. During the course of the game, some female characters are dressed in low-cut outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage and/or buttocks; one bathing sequence depicts female bodies partially obscured by hot-spring mist and soap suds. Characters also make several suggestive/sexual comments (e.g., “Are those boobies? Mine get big when I transform” “Wait, is she a dominatrix…?” “I’m sorry for all the foreplay” and “Even if you get groped a bit, or get into some kinky stuff, you’ll end up able to transform.”). The words “sh*t,” “a*shole,” and “b*tch” appear in the dialogue.

 

Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory is schedule for release on March 12th in North America and March 15th in Europe. You can watch a recent trailer for the game here.
