ESRB explains its Teen rating for MediEvil on PS4

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for the PlayStation 4 version of MediEvil. The remake of the action-adventure game ended with a Teen rating due to contents categorized as Blood and Gore in addition to Violence. You can find the full ESRB description for MediEvil below:

This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of a resurrected knight attempting to stop an evil sorcerer. From a third-person perspective, players use swords, clubs, and crossbows to hack and slash their way through fantastical enemies (e.g., demons, skeletons, ghouls). Enemies are somewhat stylized and can also include headless zombies, figures hanging from nooses/gallows, and monsters impaled on wooden stakes. Combat is highlighted by slashing sounds, cries of pain, and frequent blood-splatter effects. A book in the game includes cartoony pictures of decapitated zombies and creatures with their intestines hanging out; an introductory scene depicts a disembodied hand (with bloody stump) crawling through environments.


MediEvil, which is being developed by Other Ocean Emeryville and will be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, is coming out on Oct. 25, 2019, in the U.S. region. If you are interested, you can pre-order the PlayStation 4 exclusive with on Amazon this link from the online retailer.
