.hack//G.U. Last Recode rated for Nintendo Switch by the ESRB

Released in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC, .hack//G.U. Last Recode from developer CyberConnect2 and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment could soon make its way to Nintendo Switch. Last Recode includes the first three volumes in the .hack//G.U. series fully restored and remastered, plus an additional exclusive fourth volume. The RPG collection has now received an ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) rating for a currently unannounced Switch port. Mimicking the rating of previous platforms, the game has been rated Teen for Alcohol Reference, Fantasy Violence, Mild Blood, Mild Language, and Suggestive Themes.

“This is a collection of four role-playing games in which players assume the role of a participant in a fictional game called The World. From a third-person perspective, players explore towns and dungeons, interact with characters, and battle various enemies (e.g., monsters, human rivals, robots). Characters use swords, scythes, magic attacks, and guns to defeat enemies in melee combat. One cutscene depicts words written in blood on a hospital wall. Some female characters wear outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage; cutscenes also depict male characters ogling women’s breasts and buttocks. Characters make several references to alcohol in the dialogue (e.g., “…[H]urry up with the booze”; “…in order to fog their minds with drink”; “…the legendary drunkard”; “Liquor! More liquor!”). The words “b*tch” and “a*s” appear in the game.”
