One Piece Unlimited World: Red Rated “T” In North America

0

 

One Piece Unlimited World: Red has been rated “T” (Teen) by the ESRB across all four platforms that the game is being released on. The PS3, Wii U and Vita versions rating can be viewed here, while the 3DS rating can be viewed here. They’re both identical.

 

Content descriptors are listed as: Cartoon Violence, Comic Mischief, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, and Use of Tobacco. Below is the full rating summary:

 

This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the roles of Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirate crew as they search for treasure and battle evil forces. Players engage in various quests, help expand a town, and battle enemy characters (e.g., dragons, slime creatures, pirates) in melee-style combat. Players punch, kick, use special attacks, and wield stylized/cartoony weapons to defeat enemies. Combat is highlighted by cries of pain and light effects.

 

Some female characters wear low-cut outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage; cameras occasionally linger on characters’ bodies from low angles. The dialogue contains some suggestive references (e.g., “Do you mind if I take a peek at your panties?”). In once comical sequence, a character emits flatulence to keep flying in mid-air. During the course of the game, several characters are depicted with cigarettes/cigars in their mouths. The words “a*s” and “bastard” can be heard in dialogue.

 

The “T” rating is in line with what other One Piece games have been receiving of late, from One Piece: Grand Adventure to Romance Dawn and Pirate Warriors 2.

 

One Piece Unlimited World: Red will be available in North America on July 8th and in Europe on June 27th.
