ESRB has given Samurai Warriors 5 with a Teen rating and shared details on the in-game content.
This is an action game in which players assume the roles of famous warriors through battles in feudal Japan. Players use swords, spears, rifles, and explosives to kill hordes of enemy soldiers and generals in melee combat. Battles are frenetic, highlighted by screams of pain, explosions, and occasional slow-motion effects. Cutscenes sometimes contain indirect depictions (e.g., from behind, off-camera) of characters being stabbed, shot, or dying by suicide (e.g., slicing their throats, stabbing themselves). Some female characters are dressed in revealing outfits (e.g., sides of breasts exposed, skin-tight outfits), and the camera occasionally pans/lingers on characters’ body parts). The words “bastard” and “a*s” appear in the dialogue.
Here are some of the features of the game taken from the Nintendo eShop.
- Experience an intense historical drama set during Japan’s Sengoku period, told from the perspective of this era’s foremost military commanders: Nobunaga Oda and Mitsuhide Akechi.
- Both returning heroes and brand new characters have received re-imagined designs in order to showcase the captivating world of the Sengoku period.
- Enjoy exhilarating strategic action on an evolved battlefield.
- Enemy forces continue to evolve as time passes in the story, making full use of a number of different military tactics to take on the player.
Samurai Warriors 5 will be out on June 24, 2021, for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
