The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has given their rating for Naruto Storm 4 – it is the expected T for Teen, just like all the Naruto Storm games before it. In short, the the reason is because the game has blood, language, suggestive themes, and violence. Specifically, they give the following description for their rating:
This is an adventure-fighting game in which players engage in one-on-one and group battles against characters in the Naruto Shippuden franchise. Characters punch, kick, and use special moves (e.g., fireballs, electrical blasts, energy swords) to drain opponents’ life meters; players can summon and control fantasy creatures (e.g. giant frogs, wood golems) to engage in battles. Some sequences depict blood-splatter effects as characters defeat enemy ninjas and/or attack giant enemy creatures with swords. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a character impaled through the chest with a sword—blood appears on the tip; characters impaled by arms/hands. During the course of the game, a character performs an attack that summons a “harem” of bikini-clad women with jiggling breasts; the attack depicts women rubbing their bodies against the opponent. The word “a*s” appears in the game.
