Suggestive themes, use of alcohol and more detailed for The King of Fighters XIV


The ESRB has revealed its rating summary for The King of Fighters XIV. The PlayStation 4 fighting game ended up with a Teen rating due to content relating to language, suggestive themes, use of alcohol and tobacco as well as violence. You can check out the full rating description for the 14th mainline installment of The King of Fighters series below:

This is an arcade-style fighting game in which players compete in one-on-one/three-on-three tournament matches to lay claim to the title of King of Fighters. Players punch, kick, and use special abilities (e.g., fireballs, electrical strikes, sand blasts) to drain opponents’ life meters. Combat is accompanied by frequent impact sounds, cries of pain, and colorful light effects. Several female characters are depicted in low-cut outfits that display large amounts of cleavage and/or buttocks. Female characters’ breasts sometimes jiggle during matches. One female character’s special attack depicts her pulling an opponent’s face to her breasts. A handful of sequences depict close-up shots of a character smoking a cigar and a character drinking from a sake bottle. Some still-image screens show drunken characters holding glasses of beer. The words “sh*t,” “d*ck,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.

The King of Fighters XIV is expected to come out for the PS4 on the 23rd of August in the North American region. You can preorder the upcoming fighting game, if you are interested, on Amazon with this link.
