What the ESRB has to say about ToB

As usual, here's the ESRB's desription of Tales of Berseria.

Platform: Windows PC, PlayStation 4

Rating category: T (13+)

Content Descriptors: Blood, Mild Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Partial Nudity, Use of Alcohol, Violence

Rating Summary: This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of Velvet Crowe, a warrior on a quest for vengeance against an evil lord. As players explore towns and fields, they can interact and recruit additional characters to help battle enemy soldiers and fantastical creatures (e.g., dragons, werewolves, lizard men) in melee-style combat. Players use swords, lances, pistols, and magic spells to defeat enemies. Battles are frenetic, highlighted by impact sounds and cries of pain. Cutscenes also show acts of violence: a man impaled with a sword; a man repeatedly shooting himself in the head. Some sequences depict blood stains on characters' bodies and/or clothing. The game contains some suggestive material: female characters and creatures depicted partially nude (no genitalia or nipples are seen); suggestive references in the dialogue (e.g., “You mean it feels good to get whipped,” “Your butt is a bit bulky,” and “Eating lots of vegetables will give you bazongas”). During the course of the game, some characters are depicted drinking alcohol, slurring their speech, and discussing drinking (e.g., "If you guys are going to have a drinking contest, you're going to need some snacks to go with all that alcohol, right?"). The words “ass” and “bastard” appear in dialogue.
