Digimon Survive ESRB rating rated T Teen Bandai Namco Witchcraft release date 2022

Digimon Survive is definitely going to release eventually, but it’s definitely not coming this year. It was delayed to 2022 in a financial report earlier this year, and then Bandai Namco and developer Witchcraft reiterated the delay to fans this past October. Nonetheless, Digimon Survive has received its ESRB rating — T for Teen — and an ESRB rating usually indicates that a game is in the home stretch of its development. That’s something!

The ESRB rating also offers up a succinct description of gameplay in Digimon Survive and why it has received the T rating. It involves a Poop Toss:

This is a visual novel, with strategy/role-playing game elements, in which players follow Japanese teenagers lost in a world of monsters. As players follow the storyline, they periodically engage in turn-based battles using Digimon (monsters with special powers/abilities). As human and Digimon characters move around grid-like battlefields, players select attack moves/skills from a menu and watch short animations of monsters executing moves. Attacks can include kicking, biting, blasts of energy, and elemental bursts. One cutscene briefly depicts a still image of a bloodstained corpse. Out of a variety of attack moves, Digimon can perform a Poop Toss, which is depicted as a cartoony poo coil thrown at opponents, and is accompanied by squishy sound effects. The words “sh*t,” “b*tch,” and “p*ssed” appear in the dialogue.

Hopefully you can stomach words like “p*ssed” in your video games. Digimon Survive will launch sometime next year on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
