After being rated in Taiwan last month, Koei Tecmo’s action RPG Fate/Samurai Remnant has been rated by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board in the United States (as spotted by Gematsu). It could indicate a new trailer and release date for the title, which launches this year for PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC.
The ESRB listing also offers some new gameplay details. As a swordsman in the Edo Period of Japan (one who can seemingly summon a Servant), players will fight enemies like ninjas, samurai, demons and ghosts with swords. However, you’ll also explore cities, meet other characters and complete “objectives.”
Combat is “fast-paced” with “sword-slashing effects, cries of pain, and blood splatter.” Despite being rated T for Teen, there’s a hefty amount of violence in the cutscenes, with dismemberment, gore, decapitations of “serpent creatures,” and more. Alcohol and tobacco references also abound, though the explicit language is seemingly limited to “s**t.”
Stay tuned for more details, with an announcement perhaps happening at the Summer Game Fest Showcase today at noon PDT.
