ESRB rates Scribblenauts Showdown for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch [Update]

Another rating, but this time with a description.

Scribblenauts Showdown

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated Scribblenauts Showdown for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch following its initial rating in Taiwan in early December.

Here is the description of the game provided by the rating board:

This is a party/puzzle-platformer game in which players engage in a variety of tasks and mini-games using a selection of words/actions/modifiers/characters. Mini-games include fishing, racing, and using drones to deliver items. Players can type in random nouns and adjectives to create different word combinations that trigger comical scenarios. Some games/tasks prompt players to use “cartoony” weapons (e.g., bazookas, bombs, swords) to deplete the health meters of other characters. Characters can also eat/bite other characters when prompted by a modifying word/trait. A handful of areas contain enemy characters (i.e., skeleton warriors) that will attack players if approached. During an eating-contest mini-game, players’ character may vomit if they consume too much food without swallowing; a comical “gagging” sound effect is heard, as well as brightly-colored green vomit.

Update 9:15 a.m.: Warner Bros. has officially announced Scribblenauts Showdown for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. Read more here.
