Xenoblade Chronicles 3 ESRB Rating Explains Suggestive Themes and Violence
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is out in July. The game is confirmed to launch on the Nintendo Switch and appears to continue the story from its predecessor.
ESRB has rated Xenoblade Chronicles 3 giving it a Teen rating. This is similar to its predecessor and pretty much the case for all the previous games as well. Their reasons are cited as Language, Mild Blood, Suggestive Themes, and Violence.
Take a look at what the ESRB had to say regarding the various suggestive themes and violence in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
This is a role-playing game in which players follow fighters through a conflict between two nations. From a third-person perspective, players complete quests and engage in melee battle against enemies (e.g., animals, creatures, human boss characters). Combat is highlighted by impact sounds, explosions, and cries of pain. Cutscenes depict further instances of violence: characters impaled by sword; a character shooting herself off screen; a man stabbing himself off screen. A handful of scenes depict blood (e.g., droplets falling from a wounded character; drips of blood on a character’s face). Some fantasy characters/creatures are designed with revealing armor and/or anatomy (e.g., deep cleavage, partially exposed breasts). The words “sh*t,” “ar*ehole,” and “b*tch” appear in the dialogue.
The game is set to launch on July 29 and will be available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
