The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its rating summary for Akiba’s Beat. The upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game ended up with a T (for Teen rating) due to blood, fantasy violence, mild language, suggestive themes and use of alcohol. You can check out the complete ESRB description of third installment of the Akiba series below:
This is an action-role-playing game in which players assume the role of a young man (Asahi Tachibana) caught in a mysterious time loop. As players explore surreal environments, they interact with local people and battle fantastical creatures and human enemies.
Characters use swords, pistols, and magic/special attacks (i.e., blasts of fire, energy) to deplete enemies’ health meters in melee combat. Battles are highlighted by cries of pain, impact sounds, and light effects. One cutscene depicts a character holding a bloody sword after attacking another character; blood is also shown splattered across the screen.
Some characters engage in suggestive dialogue (e.g., “It’s more that he’s…trying to touch them against their wishes”; “Sexual predators deserve no less than to be hunted down”; “Whenever Moe would lean over, I felt such euphoria squeezing me from all directions.”). One scene depicts a “total drunkard” slurring his speech and hiccupping. The words “b*tch” and “a*s” appear in dialogue.
Akiba’s Beat is releasing on the 2nd of May in the North American region. If you are interested, you can preorder the PS4 and Vita action role-playing game with this link on Amazon.
