A newly minted ESRB rating seems to infer Compile Hearts’ Superdimension Neptunia vs. SEGA Hard Girls title will see a Western PC release on top of the originally intended Vita release.
The game fuses together Compile’s Neptunia franchise with SEGA’s Hard Girls, both franchises are famous for their console-themed grills. This isn’t a huge surprise as other Neptunia games have found their way to PC before but it’s always nice to see niche Japanese content land on PC — even if I’m not its target audience.
Rating Summary:This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of a goddess as she travels through time to save the past from destruction. As players explore dungeon-like environments across eras, they traverse platforms, collect items, and engage in turn-based combat with various enemies. Characters use swords, magic attacks, and blaster-like weapons to defeat robots, demons, and human characters. Combat is highlighted by frequent light effects and cries of pain. Some female characters wear low-cut outfits that display cleavage and jiggling breasts. One scene, involving a talking motorcycle, contains suggestive innuendo: “[Y]ou both get to ride me at the same time. . .Those people would probably beg to be ridden by you.” The words “sh*t” and “b*tch” appear in the dialogue.
