Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice mature rating

After watching several footages of the upcoming video game, it is pretty much confirmed that that it will get a mature rating, which is right now. ESRB has finally handed down the mature rating for it and they also revealed the rating summary to give fans a better idea of what to expect when it launches later on.

The only two content descriptors that the game received were Blood and Gore, and Violence. In-app purchases was not mentioned at all, which means the developer’s previous statements about not having any microtransactions have been confirmed. The whole summary actually reveals how bloody the game’s combat is. Check out the summary below:

This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of a disgraced shinobi on a quest to rescue his kidnapped lord in ancient Japan. Players use swords and a prosthetic arm to battle members of an enemy clan and supernatural demons in frenetic combat. Large blood-splatter effects occur as enemies are killed; some attacks result in decapitation and/or dismemberment. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a man impaled through the chest with a sword; a child stabbed with a sword off screen.

The game will launch on March 22. It will be available on PlayStation 4.
