Tekken 7 Gameplay Video Pits Shaheen Against Lars, Teen Rating Explained

April 6, 2017Written by Jason Dunning

In the latest Tekken 7 gameplay video today, Bandai Namco offers up a full fight between Shaheen and Lars.

Today also saw the ESRB revealing that Tekken 7 is rated Teen due to crude humor, mild blood, mild language, suggestive themes, and violence. Here’s their full ratings description, which details some of the suggestive material:

This is a fighting game in which players engage in one-on-one combat with a large cast of human, animal, and supernatural characters. Players use martial-arts punches, kicks, and throws to drain opponents’ life meters. Some characters can also use machine guns or throw fireballs at opponents. Cutscenes depict further instances of violence: a character throwing another person off a cliff into lava; a soldier shooting a character in the arm. Small blood splashes occasionally appear on the camera during cutscenes; one sequence depicts splashes of blood on a character’s nose after being struck.

The game contains includes some suggestive material: female characters wearing outfits that reveal deep cleavage (the camera occasionally zooms in on their chests); a male character peeking at a woman as she showers (no nudity is depicted); a man falling face first into a woman’s chest. One cutscene involves pizza, laxatives, gurgling noises, and flatulence as two characters scramble to reach a bathroom. The words “a*s” and “bastard” appear in the dialogue.

Tekken 7 releases on June 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Post-launch, Bandai Namco plans to bring out two paid guest characters and stages.
