ESRB rates Corpse Party: Blood Drive for Switch

2014-released survival horror game adding a new platform?

Corpse Party: Blood Drive

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has rated Corpse Party: Blood Drive for Switch.

The Team GrisGris and 5pb.-developed survival horror game was first released for PS Vita in July 2014 in Japan, followed by October 2015 in North America and Europe. An iOS and Android version was released worldwide in February 2017.

Here is the ESRB’s description of the game:

This is a survival-horror adventure game in which players help students escape a haunted school. From an over-head perspective, players traverse environments, avoid monsters, and interact with various objects and characters. Cutscenes sometimes depict various acts of violence: a man stabbing himself with a knife; a character crucified and burned. Violence is also described in text (e.g., “She continued to hack at me, again and again. . . From behind me, I could hear the sound of blood gushing into the air from the gaping hole above my neck”). Blood is frequently depicted near corpses and when characters are injured. During the course of the game, a handful of sequences depict characters whose nude bodies are partially obscured by lights, steam, and/or other body parts. Some sequences are accompanied by suggestive dialogue (e.g.,“Not that I’d expect you to be too turned on by these raisins o’mine,” “Hey, stop jiggling them,” “And where do you think you’re touching?! Those are my boobs!”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in dialogue.
