The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D gets higher ESRB rating than other versions

The ESRB has given a higher age rating for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, which you can preorder right now on Amazon with this link, than the previous versions. The original Nintendo 64 release got an Everyone rating while the Virtual Console version on the Wii also got the same when it came out.

For the remake, the ESRB decide to increase the recommended age rating to Everyone 10+, meaning that the software is suggested for anyone over the age of ten. Among the questionable content are animated blood, fantasy violence and suggestive themes. It also seemed like the ESRB has an issue with the revealing outfits being worn by the Great Faeries. Find the full description of the rating below:

This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of Link, a young hero who must stop the moon from destroying a fantasy world. Players solve puzzles, explore dungeons and fields, and use swords, bombs, bows, and magic to defeat enemy creatures (e.g., skeletal warriors, giant spiders, slime creatures). Some abilities and ranged weapons allow players to shoot projectiles (e.g., arrows and bubbles) from a first-person perspective. Combat is accompanied by slashing effects, mild explosions, and occasional green splashes emitted from creatures. During the course of the game, a handful of female creatures (Great Faeries) wear somewhat revealing outfits (e.g., covered only in ivy/leaves).

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D was announced last month. In case you missed it, you can find the first screenshots below this paragraph.

The remake is coming out in 2015 for the Nintendo 3DS.
