Corpse Party For 3DS Has Been Rated By The ERSB

Every now and again a game is accidentally announced via an ESRB rating. This is the case with Corpse Party, now apparently coming to the 3DS courtesy of XSEED. The title has previously been released in Japan last year under the name: Corpse Party: Blood Covered…Repeated Fear. The trailer for the game, which is completely in Japanese, is below, as is the ESRB description of the upcoming game.



Corpse Party
Platform: Nintendo 3DS
Rating Category:  M

Content Descriptors: Blood, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes, Violence
Rating Summary: This is a survival-horror adventure game, in which players help high-school students escape from a haunted elementary school. From an over-head perspective, players explore the school and interact with various objects and characters. Some interactions can lead to sequences that depict acts of violence: a character repeatedly stabbed with a pair of scissors; a character stabbed with a knife.

Violence is also described in the text (e.g., “The third victim was stabbed in the left eye an indeterminate number of times”; “Buckets of blood spilled out from my head. I’m sure it was hell to clean up later…”). Blood is frequently depicted near corpses and when characters are injured. The game includes some suggestive references in the dialogue (e.g., “Big t*ts does it for you, eh”; “If you don’t, I’ll email you a beautiful crotch shot—so watch out; “He grabbed me and forced me down, then began unbuttoning my blouse…”). In one scene, bathing characters are depicted with soap bubbles covering their chests and genitals. The words “f**k” and “a*shole” appear in dialogue.
