ESRB: Dark Souls has bird-people with buttocks

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.

Dark Souls ESRB Rating Reveals Multi-Headed Dragon Boss [Siliconera]

This is an adventure role-playing game in which players must battle monsters and collect souls to lift an undead curse across the land. Players use swords, axes, and magic arrows to kill zombies, demons, giant spiders, and other fantasy creatures in both ranged attacks and melee-style combat. Players can also use stealth attacks (e.g., stabbing) to dispatch enemies at close range.

Battles are accompanied by slashing sounds, cries of pain, and large splashes of blood. 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.
