The ESRB has rated From Software's upcoming beauty Dark Souls, and as always, the rating does a fine job of making the game sound awesome. Among the delectable treats, we've been informed of multi-headed dragons, bodies on spikes, and bird-like people with "exposed buttocks." Oh, ESRB, you and your buttocks!
"Battles are accompanied by slashing sounds, cries of pain, and large splashes of blood," writes the ratings board. "Blood pools may also appear on the ground, and some environments depict flaming bodies impaled on spikes. Boss battles include instances of dismemberment and decapitation (e.g., cutting off a gargoyle’s tail, slicing multiple heads off a dragon).
"... During the course of the game, one female enemy’s breasts are barely obscured by strands of hair; some bird-like humanoids are also depicted with exposed buttocks."
Sounds about right. The game has, unsurprisingly, been given an "M" rating for its violence and bird-butts. Look below for the full summary.
