A lot of hype has been surrounding the release of Quantic Dream’s follow-up to Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain. Today, Sony has released the official box art as well as the announcement of the M rating.
We’re also able to confirm Heavy Rain’s final ESRB rating has come in at a strong M for Blood, Intense Violence, Nudity, Sexual Content, Strong Language and Use of Drugs. And for those of you who have asked, the content is exactly the same as what’s being released in all our territories, so you’ll get to enjoy it exactly as Quantic Dream intended.
It is especially nice to see that no other regions tried to contest the rating that was given (I’m looking at you Australia). Please note that this is the US box art. Heavy Rain is set for a US Release on February 23, 2010, so be ready for that date. Remember to support these types of games, if you want to see more in the future.
