Action RPG ‘Fate/Samurai Remnant’ Reveals ESRB Rating Description

The ESRB rating description for the previously announced console action RPG for the Fate franchise by Type-Moon, Aniplex, and Koei Tecmo, Fate/Samurai Remnant, has been revealed.

This may be indicative of news being revealed somewhat soon, so we’ll keep you all updated. In case you missed it, check out our announcement coverage for Fate/Samurai Remnant.

You can view the full quoted ESRB rating description below:

This is an action game in which players follow the story of a swordsman during the Edo Period of Feudal Japan. Players explore cities, interact with characters, complete objectives, and engage in melee-style combat. Players use swords to battle human enemies (e.g., ninjas, samurai) and fantastical creatures (e.g., demons, ghosts) in fast-paced combat.

Battles are highlighted by sword-slashing effects, cries of pain, and blood-splatter when characters are hit. Cutscenes depict additional instances of violence and blood/gore: characters decapitating serpent creatures; a character’s severed arm falling to the ground; a character impaled through the chest—blood pooling underneath the body.

During the course of the game, the text makes several references to brothels and prostitution (e.g., “…{M]aybe we could keep that brothel map our little secret”; “…prices for time with a courtesan are quite high”; “It wouldn’t be known for prostitution anymore.”). The dialogue contains references to alcohol and tobacco (e.g., “A sweet, easy-to-drink, luxury sake”; “I’m quite fond of this country’s liquor”; “A favorite among drunkards at the food stalls”; “A vermillion pipe with burnt tobacco inside”); a handful of sequences depict characters holding smoking pipes. The word “sh*t” appears in the game.

Unfortunately, not much information has been shared about this game other than it being an action RPG. Further, fan-favorite character Musashi shall be present in some capacity.

The teaser trailer alongside this announcement showcases in-engine footage with the protagonist and currently unspecified circumstances. The official website lacks additional information for now.

Fate/Samurai Remnant will release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in 2023.
