Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate has been rated by the ESRB.
The full rating, as seen below, details the weapons players can use, as well as some of the more mature themes with blood, seduction and even a strange appendage all in there – and some will wonder why it’ll ship with an “M” for mature:
“This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the roles of several members of the Belmont Family as they battle evil forces in a supernatural setting. Players use whips, chains, axes, and other bladed weapons to attack a variety of fantastical creatures (e.g., zombies, werewolves, vampires, harpies). Boss battles contain more frenetic action, with interactive sequences that allow players to stab creatures close-up (e.g., cutting off creatures limbs/torsos; stabbing monsters in the eye). A handful of cutscenes depict human characters getting stabbed with large stakes. Enemies emit splashes of blood when struck, and some enemies burst into pieces when killed. During the course of the game, an extended sequence depicts a female vampire seducing a character while caressing a woman’s thigh. A handful of creatures briefly appear topless in battle, and a male werewolve character appears to have an appendage/genatalia between its legs.”
Developed by MercurySteam, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate releases in March for the 3DS.
