ESRB rates Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition for PS4, Xbox One

"Complete Edition" incoming?

Final Fantasy XV

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated a “Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition” for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

While the description of the rating does not provide any further information, it is likely the Royal Edition is a “Complete Edition” containing the main game and all of the downloadable content released up until now.

Here is the full description:

This is an action role-playing game (RPG) in which players control a prince and his friends as they attempt to save their kingdom from evil forces. From a third-person perspective, players move around battlefields and city environments, perform various quests, and battle an assortment of human and fantastical enemies (e.g., demons, titans). Characters use swords, guns (e.g., pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers, sniper rifles), and magic attacks (e.g., exploding fireballs, blasts of ice) to defeat soldiers, monsters, and oversized animals in frenetic combat. Fights are highlighted by cries of pain, dramatic light effects, explosions, and realistic gunfire. A handful of cutscenes depict characters impaled on swords; one cutscene involves a woman being stabbed off-screen; another scene depicts a character with a bloodstained wound. During the course of the game, some female characters are depicted topless, with breasts that lack discernible details (i.e., no nipples). The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.

Final Fantasy XV is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will launch for PC in early 2018.
