In keeping with series tradition, ESRB has rolled out an M for Mature rating for upcoming PS4 and Vita title Senran Kagura Estival Versus, citing “partial nudity and sexual themes.”

There’s also sexually suggestive dialog and mini games, while expletives will pop up based on your, ahem, interactions with the female ninjas.  

Here is the official rating breakdown courtesy of ESRB:

This is an action game in which players lead one of five shinobi factions through battles on a mysterious island. Players punch, kick, and use weapons (e.g., swords, scythe, rifles) to defeat humans and creatures (e.g., wooden golems, cat girls) in melee-style combat. Battles are accompanied by cries of pain and impact sounds. By inflicting damage, players can cause human opponents’ clothing to rip apart, revealing lingerie/underwear or partially nude bodies—breasts/buttocks obscured by bright lights and orbs. In one mini-game, players can repeatedly tap on a female character’s body to remove her clothing. Some gallery images depict female characters with exposed buttocks; pictures sometimes depict characters groping at breasts. The dialogue also references suggestive/sexual material (e.g., “Please, kindly, may I grope your boobs?” and “Y-you’re rubbing it all. . .Ahh?! Auh!”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in dialogue.

Senran Kagura Estival Versus will hit PS4 and PS Vita across North America and Europe in March.
