Metal Gear Rising Revengeance has recently been rated M for Mature by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is Konami’s upcoming multiplatform title that is currently being developed by Platinum Games. The company known for Bayonetta. The ESRB’s reasoning for the M rating was due to the “Blood and Gore, Intense Violence and Strong Language”.
The rating description then goes onto detail scenes in the game from stealth tactics to the rather rude words that can be heard in the games dialogue. Here is the full description for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance and is well worth a read:
This is an action game in which players assume the role of Raiden, a cybernetic soldier on a mission to stop a futuristic terrorist organization. Players use swords, guns, and rocket launchers to kill enemy cyborgs and giant robots in frenetic melee-style combat. Players can also employ stealth tactics (e.g., impaling/stabbing enemies close-up) to eliminate targets. Combat is fast-paced and frenetic, with realistic gunfire, explosions, and cries of pain. Exaggerated blood splashes occur frequently when enemies are injured, and slow-motion effects highlight various finishing moves (e.g., dismembering enemies). Some cut scenes also depict intense acts of violence: a character impaled in slow motion; a close-up angles of dismemberment; a character’s heart ripped out. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in dialogue.
