ESRB Issues Rating For The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has issued their verdict on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, seeing Link’s next adventure rated Everyone 10+.

There aren’t any particular surprises or spoilers, but ESRB warns of “some mildly suggestive material.” That specifically relates to the Great Fairies, which the board explains have “moderate cleavage and/or exaggerated-size breasts,” as well as references to alcohol.

“This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of Link on a quest to stop a growing evil in the land of Hyrule,” the rating reads. “As players explore the open-world environment, they can forage for materials, explore shrines, and engage in melee-style combat against fantastical creatures (e.g., goblins, skeletons, centaurs).

“Players use swords, axes, clubs, and bows to defeat enemies that generally disappear amid puffs of smoke. One brief sequence depicts a battlefield strewn with the bodies of enemy creatures; in the background, a few bodies appear to be impaled by spears.

“The game contains some mildly suggestive material: fairies with moderate cleavage and/or exaggerated-size breasts; dialogue such as ‘I get to see a young hunk draw a bow again?’ and ‘If I have to have something pounce on me, why couldn’t it be a lady?’ During the course of the game, a shop owner tells Link that she only serves ‘…drinks that are definitely just for adults…’; players can also encounter a drunken character that occasionally hiccups.”

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release exclusively on Nintendo Switch and Wii U worldwide on March 3rd.
