Blood, Partial Nudity and Violence detailed for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The Metroidvania game ended up with a T (for Teen) rating due to contents categorized as Blood, Partial Nudity and Violence. You can find the full ESRB description for the upcoming title below:

This is an action role-playing game in which players assume the role of Miriam, a cursed orphan who must battle her way through a demon-infested castle. As players traverse side-scrolling environments, they use swords, spears, pistols, and whips to battle fantastical creatures (e.g., harpies; spiked armor; demon-like birds, rodents, dogs) in melee-style combat. In one sequence, players encounter a boss character emerging from a bathtub full of blood; her magic attacks can cause blood to rain down on players and stain the walls and ceilings. Another sequence depicts an impaled corpse, with blood flowing heavily into a large fountain pool. The game also depicts a topless female boss creature (no discernible nipples).

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is expected to come out sometime later this year in the North American region. It is slated to arrive on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One home consoles in addition to the PC platform.
