Persona 5 Strikers Retains Mature Rating For Partial Nudity and Sexual Themes

Persona 5 Strikers has been rated by ESRB. The game has retained its Mature rating which is similar to its predecessor, Persona 5 Royal.

Persona 5 Strikers is a sequel to Persona 5 Royal while it is more of a spin-off instead of a direct successor. The game is primarily an action RPG developed by Koei Tecmo instead of Atlus. It recently received a new gameplay trailer that showcased the various dynamic points in the story and action-packed gameplay.

ESRB has rated Persona 5 Strikers today giving it a Mature rating. The game has been confirmed to launch for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC.

This is an action role-playing game in which players follow high-school students operating as Phantom Thieves in two different worlds. As players explore dungeon-like areas, they engage in battles against fantastical creatures (e.g., demons, evil spirits, shadow creatures). Characters use blades, guns, and Personas (i.e., creatures with magical powers/attacks) to defeat enemies. Combat can be frenetic, highlighted by impact sounds, occasional gunfire, and cries of pain. One dungeon contains several large bloodstains on the floor/walls; characters occasionally rip masks off their faces, resulting in splashes of blood. Several female monsters/demons/Personas are depicted with partially exposed breasts, and one creature has a phallic-shaped head and torso. Various Personas (e.g., Succubus) have sexual characteristics described in text (e.g., “A demon who tempts sleeping men…”; “They visit sleeping men and have sexual intercourse with them.”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.

This is similar to how ESRB rated Persona 5 Royal. Both of these games have a Mature rating and the reasons cited are partial nudity, violence, strong language, sexual themes, and blood.
