Stating the Obvious, Naruto Generations Rated T for Teen

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is slated to come out in North America on March 13, 2012. Up until recently, North American promotional material has had the “Rating Pending” or “RP” mark as the game was awaiting review. Well, that is no more! The North American version of yesterday’s 9 minute trailer lists the ESRB rating as “T” for Teen, which is the same as Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2.

The ESRB, also known as the Entertainment Software Ratings Board has this to say about Generations as part of their ratings review:

This is an action-fighting game in which players engage in one-on-one battles against characters from the Naruto Shippuden universe. Players punch, kick, and use special moves (e.g., fireballs, energy blasts) to drain opponents’ life meters; a variety of characters can also summon fantasy creatures (e.g. giant snakes and birds, winged demons) that complete unique attack animations. The frenetic battles are accompanied by punching sounds, cries of pain, and colorful light effects. Animated cutscenes depict other acts of violence: extended swordfights; the silhouette of a warrior impaling himself on a sword. One character shouts “Damn you!” whenever defeated.
