Stellar Blade Rated 18+ in Korea for Body Exposure and Violence

The Korean rating board has recently given the upcoming Shift Up action game Stellar Blade an 18+ rating. The reasoning given for this rating is due to the game’s suggestive expressions and body exposure, primarily with the protagonist, Eve. Additionally, the “excessive violence” seen in corpses, blood, and other imagery served ample enough reason for the high age rating. Consequently, players should expect a Mature rating from the ESRB and the equivalent rating boards in other regions.

In Stellar Blade, the enemy called Naytiba makes humanity flee to an off-world colony. The protagonist, Eve, is a member of the seventh airborne squad; she’s trying to save the planet by defeating the elder Naytiba. Her companions are Adam from Earth and Lily. Artemis is a member of the fifth airborne squad and upgrades Eve’s equipment throughout the game.

Xion is a city built under the Wasteland by humanity’s last survivors. Eve is called Angel by the residents, being both feared and in awe by others, though many will come to trust her throughout the game. You can camp around the world to upgrade her capabilities and heal. Xion is connected to semi-open world areas called the Wasteland and the Great Desert, which encourage exploration. You can gather Hyper Cells; Eve finds these to restore Xion to its former state of glory.

Other items include Exospines and Gears, which are used to acquire SP EXP and new skills, as well as cosmetics like accessories, costumes, and hairstyles. Moreover, this adventure’s soundtrack will be almost entirely comprised of choruses and vocals.

Stellar Blade will be released for PlayStation 5 on April 26, 2024. Pre-orders are now available.
