The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Shining Resonance Refrain. The Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One JRPG ended up with a Teen rating due to Fantasy Violence, Language, Partial Nudity, Suggestive Themes and Use of Alcohol. You can find the full ESRB rating description below:
This is a role-playing game in which players control young fighters through a fictional continent called Alfheim. As players explore fantasy kingdoms and interact with townspeople and royalty, they perform quests and battle enemies in melee combat. Characters mostly use swords and magic spells to defeat dragons, demons, and enemy soldiers in frenetic battles. Combat is highlighted by light effects, impact sounds, and cries of pain.
The game contains some suggestive material: a mission in which party members dress in bikinis to advertise for a client; characters wearing low-cut tops that reveal swaying/jiggling cleavage; a hot-springs sequence depicting topless characters, with their breasts covered by water (no nipple detail). One town person, labeled “drunk man,” briefly discusses drinking sake; another character appears intoxicated from a “juice.” The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.
