The much-awaited Final Fantasy XV is definitely not for kids as the ESRB released its rating for the said game. The rating was given due to the violence, language, and partial nudity content in the game.
In terms of violence, it is already expected that Final Fantasy will never be for five-year-olds. With weapon-wielding characters, who also use magical elements and super powerballs, players should expect a lot of blood and death in the game.
"Fights are highlighted by cries of pain, dramatic light effects, and realistic gunfire. A handful of cutscenes depict characters impaled on swords; one cutscene involves a woman being stabbed off-screen; another scene depicts a character with a bloodstained wound," a part of the description reads.
It also indicated that the game has partial nudity words where women appear topless in some scenes and characters using mild curse words.
Despite the rating, a survey conducted by Famitsu, a Japanese gaming magazine, revealed that 93.3 percent are looking forward to buying the game. The survey involved 1,050 readers being asked whether they will buy the game or not. Although this does not represent the whole gaming community in Japan, the show of support should be a good sign for FFXV developer Square Enix since they announced before that they will determine the future of the franchise based on the public response for Final Fantasy XV.
The survey also revealed what fans are most expecting about the game with 821 respondents saying that they are excited about the story while 537 people are looking forward to the game's battle system. The third element fans are excited about is the graphics and the characters come in fourth place.
Final Fantasy will be available in the North American region on November 29 but fans can already pre-order from Amazon.
