Shin Megami Tensei V ESRB Rating Details The Mature and Sexual Content
ESRB has given a Mature rating to Shin Megami Tensei V, and just as expected, the game is quite dark with some sexual content.
Fans of the series won’t be surprised to see this rating since there are quite a few demons in the game that are sexual like Succubus. Heck, there is a phallic-shaped demon named Mara. All of this is also detailed in the ESRB rating.
Here’s what they had to say regarding the game. The game retains a mature rating and will be out later in November for the Nintendo Switch.
This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of a high-school student traversing a nether realm in Tokyo. Players explore the environment, interact with characters, and battle demonic creatures in turn-based combat. Players select weapon and magic attacks/demonic abilities to kill enemies; battles are accompanied by light effects, impact sounds, and screams of pain. Some attacks result in blood-splatter effects, while pools of blood are seen in some areas. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a character impaled through the chest; a character impaling a woman with a sword. The game depicts several female monsters with partially exposed breasts and buttocks; one creature appears with a phallic-shaped head and torso. A handful of demons (e.g., Succubus, Incubus) are described with sexual characteristics (e.g., “They are known to visit men/women in their sleep and have sex with them”; “…said to engage in intercourse with human women….”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the game.
Shin Megami Tensei V will be released on November 11, 2021, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. While you are here, why not check out the English voice cast for the game.
