Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Gets An ESRB Rating
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is due for a release soon so it has been rated by multiple rating boards around the world including ESRB.
The game has been rated Teen by ESRB for Alcohol Reference, Blood, and Violence. The rating is for the Nintendo Switch version of the game but it is also confirmed to launch on the same day and date on PC along with the Nintendo Switch.
Here’s a description of the ESRB rating which provides some insight into the game.
This is an action adventure game in which players assume the role of a hunter who must save a village from a monster invasion. Players traverse a fantasy world and hunt down and kill various dragons, wyverns, and giant spiders. Players use swords, hammers, bows, and axes to kill creatures in frenetic melee-style combat. Spurts of blood are often depicted when players and creatures are injured during combat. A handful of missions allow players to operate mounted turrets and cannons to shoot rampaging creatures. The game contains several references to alcohol in the dialogue (e.g., “Enjoy the occasional drink and you’ll never need a docto—*hic*”; “I had a couple of sips of alcohol…”; “Drinking alone ain’t the worst thing, but booze tastes better with company”; “Pops tells the story whenever he gets boozed up.”).
Recently, Capcom has confirmed the release date for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak revealing that it will be out on June 30, 2022.
