Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate is coming soon! This 3DS-only game takes place 25 years after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and before the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. It will be released March 1, 2013 (LoS 2 will be released December 31, 2013). While doing some digging on this upcoming game, I came across the ESRB rating and got a good laugh out of it. They have to spell out in a very detailed manner what’s doing in the game, which is pretty entertaining at times.
Content descriptors: Blood and Gore, Partial Nudity, Suggestive Themes, Violence
Rating summary: 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 leg.
Ahahaha! Well, not only do you have werewolf action to look forward to in this game, but you also get a nice view of some werewolves’ junk. Ahaha.
Check out the (genatalia-free) trailer:
Anyone planning on picking this game up in March?
