ESRB Gives "Conception II" RPG a Mature Rating

"Children of the Seven Stars" heads to 3DS and Vita this spring

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) officially has a rating for the North American release of Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars. Thanks to "Fantasy Violence, Language, Mild Blood, Partial Nudity, and Sexual Themes," the Atlus-published RPG has been rated M for Mature.


Right now they just have a rating listed for the Nintendo 3DS version. Here's the full description from the ESRB, hilarious as always:


This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of a young student trying to rid the world of monsters. While exploring dungeons, players engage in turn-based battles with a variety of human and fantastical enemies (e.g., ogres, demons). Human characters occasionally use guns to shoot the player's characters; other fighters use hammers, swords, or blasts of energy to deplete opponents' health meters. 


A handful of scenes depict a character covered in blood across the chest and upper arm. The game includes some suggestive dialogue (e.g., “You have giant boobs!” “I think your breasts are very lovely . . . Um, well…Their shape is…I think boys would like them.”). 


During the course of the game, players are able to engage in a Classmating system, in which two characters interact to create a Star Child; these brief sequences do not depict sexual acts, though the female characters shown are often partially nude and placed in suggestive poses (e.g., on their hands and knees). Female characters are also depicted with jiggling breasts, and camera angles often zoom-in on cleavage and buttocks. The words “sh*t” and 'a*shole' appear in the dialogue.


Conception II heads to Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita in North America this spring.
