A few weeks ago it was revealed that Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is the first Final Fantasy title to receive a “M for Mature” rating, and today the ESRB released the rating details, revealing the reasons.
I'm excited to check this one out. Was going to play the unofficial English patch on an emulator, but decided to just wait it out. Good thing too! Considering I'll be getting the FFXV demo as well!
OMG, I was justr saying how FF XV should keep the blood of the previous trailers and stuff, and how FF should go from T to M because most of the fanbase is older now and we need more mature, deep stories. I hope this becomes a trend. Just check out my previous comments to see that this is what has been on my mind for some time.
To be fair, you can still tell a dark and incredible story with a "teen" rating. However, I am quite excited to see how a more mature rating will open things up. It'll be very interesting to see!
i played it in japanese and then the english patch, it is such an amazing game for what it was on the psp and i can't wait for the hd version
FInally an M-Rated FF its been time to move on from the T rating.
Yea I want a dark final fantasy game
what does the rating have to do with anything? what should matter is if the story and gameplay are good. "move on from the T rating" is just the talk of an ignorant gamer who believes that the more explicit content the better the game.
Considering just blood and violence score a mature rating, it does not mean much. Also I seriously doubt the story would be any worse if the game was rated T.
I'm so damn ready for this game! Can't wait.
Awesome, played it in Japanese a while back.... was epic run but couldn't understand everything. Really can't wait for a deep immersive jrpg on ps4, the demo is a bonus.... which I'm also eager to play to death lol! This, FFXV and Kingdom Hearts 3 is literally almost 10 years of waiting!
Jeepers. That's a lot of M-rated stuff in that description.
I didn't know Bill Cosby was in the game.
I wouldn't worry, nanny states are no doubt making excuses to make all games rated M as they want gaming banned/limited. It will be a regular FF game just PC people pushing it.
Yeah the ESRB is right on this one. The game is pretty dark, probably the darkest FF game to date. A game about war will be like that. So don't expect a lot of fluff in this game, if you are looking for a hardcore storyline look no further. Having played & finished this on the PSP u guys are in for a treat. In my opinion the best FF game to come out in a long time.
Now I am interested.
think consumers care about the rating a little too much
