The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its rating summary for 7’scarlet. The visual novel ended up with a Teen rating due to Alcohol Reference, Blood, Mild Language, Mild Suggestive Themes and Violence. You can find the full ESRB description of 7’scarlet below:
This is a visual novel in which players help a young woman search for her missing brother in a remote town. Players uncover dangerous truths, investigate clues, and interact with various characters along the way. Some interactions can lead to sequences depicting blood and violence: a man bashing a character’s head into the ground; a man set on fire; a woman with blood-soaked hands running away from an assailant. Violence is also described in text (e.g., “[He] grabs the man’s head with his blood-soaked right hand and smashes the back of it on the floor”; “[His] right leg, which was shot yesterday, is covered in blood.”).
The game contains some suggestive material: a couple embracing in a hot spring, with text that reads, “My dripping wet skin is pressed against him, and I can feel the heat of his body”; dialogue that states, “Although, I never thought you’d peek into the men’s bath…” and “His nose is almost touching my stomach, which makes my heart go wild.”
During the course of the game, characters make several references to alcohol (e.g., “He might’ve had a bit of alcohol,” “Please get this drunkard out of here,” “You can really hold your liquor!” and “I’d like to have some of that iced wine…”). The words p*ssing me off” appear in dialogue.
