Tales Of Berseria Rated Teen For Partial Nudity, Language, Blood
Tales of Berseria ESRB Rating
(Last Updated On: December 27, 2016)

Minor blood stains, language, alcohol and partial nudity all make an appearance in Bandai Namco’s upcoming Tales of Berseria for the PS4 and PC in North America. The game was recently rated by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board.

Game Idealist did a quick write-up about the rating for Tales of Berseria, where they detailed that the game will have some amounts of violence, including a guy getting impaled by a sword, they point out there are blood stains depicted in some scenes, and that a man “repeatedly shoots himself in the head” at one point. Really curious to see how that plays out.

As far as the partial nudity is concerned… it doesn’t sound like much, with the official ESRB page stating…

“The game contains some suggestive material: female characters and creatures depicted partially nude (no genitalia or nipples are seen); suggestive references in the dialogue (e.g., “You mean it feels good to get whipped,” “Your butt is a bit bulky,” and “Eating lots of vegetables will give you bazongas”)”

I wonder if that line about eating vegetables is referring to balloons or balls? I’m pretty sure it’s the former, but given how emasculated men have become in America this generation under the kakistocracy of regressive politics peddled in our education system, I wouldn’t be surprised if it referred to the latter.

Anyway, there’s a bit of alcohol and some minor foul language.

The brief mention about the man being impaled makes me wonder if Bandai may have slipped back in that one scene that was supposedly censored in the West? According to Namco, had they kept that scene in it would have ratcheted up the rating to an 18+ instead of the 16+ they managed to secure ahead of release.

Anyway, you can look for Tales of Berseria to launch on PS4 in the West starting January 24th, and on Steam starting January 26th.

    Here the infamous credits of geno cyber.

    That BBFC passed it, and regression bamco got in a tizz about a minor getting stabbed.

    That nothing compared to this. And rather graphic.


    • Thanks for sharing such an awesome late 80’s early 90’s anime, those were the best, now I have another great OVA to see 👍.

      Rather sad to see how pussyfied the world has became.

      • Heh, yeah the 1980s/early 90s anime were no joke. They’re WAAAAAAY different from what we get these days. Like Mad Bull 34? Cartoon didn’t pull any punches whatsoever.

        That anime would be way too politically incorrect for today’s standards, just the same as most games back then would be too politically incorrect for today’s standards, too… like Vendetta or Chuck Rock.

    The man being impaled is not as important as a minor being impaled.

    Name any media that doesn’t have a minor hurt or killed. Because you can’t.

    “The brief mention about the man being impaled makes me wonder if Bandai may have slipped back in that one scene that was supposedly censored in the West? ” it’s WAS censored and they already confirmed it, the man being impaled is another one, that you can easily guess who is, and also understand why the kid getting impaled was important for the story.
