Monster Hunter Generations Rated By ESRB
The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has assigned their age and content rating for Monster Hunter Generations, the Nintendo 3DS exclusive’s blood, crude humour, fantasy violence and mild suggestive themes seeing it awarded a Teen rating.
Summarising their decision, the ESRB writes: “This is an action-adventure game in which players engage in hunting missions in a fantastical world filled with monsters. Players use swords, lances, bombs, and firearms to kill various creatures (e.g., dragons, dinosaurs, sand sharks) and complete missions/quests.
“Battles are accompanied by impact sounds, cries of pains, and realistic explosions. Red blood-like spurts briefly appear as characters and monsters are injured. Players can equip female characters with revealing outfits that depict large amounts of cleavage. During the course of the game, players can throw ‘dung bombs’ at enemies, resulting in depictions of greenish-brown clouds.”
Monster Hunter Generations will launch exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in Europe and North America this summer.
