Mild suggestive themes and more detailed for Shenmue I & II

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Shenmue I & II. The remastered collection ended up with a Teen rating due to contents categorized as Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Simulated Gambling, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco in addition to Violence. You can find the full ESRB description below:

This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of a teenage jujitsu artist (Ryo Hazuki) seeking to avenge his father’s death. As players travel around the city of Yokosuka, they can engage in missions, search for clues, and battle street thugs in hand-to-hand combat. Characters punch, kick, and throw each other during battles. Fights are highlighted by impact sounds and cries of pain.

A handful of environments contain pinup posters or magazines depicting female figures in bikinis; one character is shown wearing a low-cut top that reveals large amounts of cleavage. Players are able to wager in-game currency on slot machines, as well as dice and roulette-style games. Characters are occasionally seen smoking cigarettes, and one scene depicts two men drinking from beer bottles and slurring their speech. The word “a*shole” appears in the dialogue.
