The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its rating summary for Dynasty Warriors 9. The PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC open-world action game from Tecmo Koei ended up with a Teen rating due to contents categorized as alcohol reference, mild language and violence. You can find the complete ESRB description from the ninth mainline Dynasty Warriors installment below:
This is a tactical action game in which players assume the role of warriors battling for control of ancient China. Players engage in hack-and-slash combat with hordes of enemy soldiers using swords, spears, crossbows, hammers, and bladed weapons. Battles are highlighted by sword-slashing effects, impact sounds, and cries of pain; enemies collapse to the ground when killed. In a handful of cutscenes, characters are depicted impaled by arrows and spears.
The game contains references to alcohol in the dialogue (e.g., “I hope you can hold your alcohol, because I want to have a few drinks tonight”; “He loves wine, too, and drinks a lot of it”; “I like to share some wine with my friends.”). The word “bastard” appears in the game.
