Drug references, partial nudity and other content detailed for the RPG, Stella Glow


The ESRB has rated Stella Glow, giving the Nintendo 3DS RPG a Teen rating. The videogame contains content such as blood, drug reference, fantasy violence, language, partial nudity, suggestive themes and use of alcohol.

The females in the game are shown “partially nude” in the hot springs in addition to, at times, wearing very revealing clothing. There are also some suggestive dialogue lines in regards to breasts in the texts. You can read that part of the description from the ESRB summary below:

The game contains suggestive/sexual material: female characters partially nude in hot springs and/or wearing outfits that barely cover their breasts; dialogue/text that states, “Those massive knockers float around like they own the place” and “Do you want your boobs grabbed?”

The handheld RPG will also feature characters making references to drugs and alcohol. Not to mention that there will be a few profanities:

During the course of the game, characters engage in several discussions about alcohol; one extended sequence portrays a character drunk and slurring her speech. The game also includes references to drugs (e.g., “Mopium…This is a drug harvesting field” and “This is what has been driving the Port Noir economy…The exportation of the illegal drug mopium.”). The words “sh*t” and “a*shole” are heard in dialogue.

In terms of violence, the attacks are highlighted by light flashes, impacted sound effects in addition to some occasional bleeding. The cut scenes can also get quite violent. You can find the rest of ESRB’s description for Stella Glow below:

This is a strategy role-playing game in which players lead a company of heroes on a quest to stop a destructive villain. From a 3/4-overhead perspective, players position characters around a grid-based area to fight human soldiers and fantasy creatures (e.g., orcs, fairies, jellies) in turn-based combat. Players use swords, spears, and firearms to attack enemies; damage is indicated by flashes, impact sounds, and occasional blood-spurt effects. A handful of sequences depict still-images of characters stabbed/impaled by swords and knives; some of these scenes depict large bloodstains on clothing.

Stella Glow is the latest RPG from Imageepoch. The company’s previous works include Time and Eternity on PlayStation 3, Fate Extra on PSP, Arc Rise Fantasia on Wii in addition to the Luminous Arc series on the DS.
