The Entertainment Software Rating Board, or ESRB, has gone up with their official rating summary for Final Fantasy XV. While the majority of the description is fairly vague, we must stress there are a few spoilers here so continue at your own risk.
Final Fantasy XV is rated Teen for Language, Mild Blood, Partial Nudity and Violence. Read on for the full details.
This is an action role-playing game (RPG) in which players control a prince and his friends as they attempt to save a kingdom from evil forces. From a third-person perspective, players move around battlefields and city environments, perform various quests, and battle an assortment of human and fantastical enemies (e.g., demons, titans). Characters use swords, guns, and magic attacks (e.g., exploding fireballs, blasts of ice) to defeat soldiers and oversized animals in frenetic combat. Fights are highlighted by cries of pain, dramatic light effects, and realistic gunfire. A handful of cutscenes depict characters impaled on swords; one cutscene involves a woman being stabbed off-screen; another scene depicts a character with a bloodstained wound. During the course of the game, some female characters are depicted topless, with breasts that lack discernible details (i.e., no nipples). The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.
Final Fantasy XV is due out on November 29 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
