PS Vita Exclusive Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Rated by the ESRB: Intense Violence and More

on December 7, 2013 4:08 PM

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc for PS Vita has been rated by the ESRB, that gave the quirky game hitting the shelves on February the 11th a predictable M for Mature.

Here’s what the rating board has to say about it:

This is a puzzle-adventure game in which players follow high-school students attempting to escape from a robot-bear captor. As players navigate the school, they sometimes come upon various corpses. Players investigate the various crime scenes, looking for clues and interviewing rival classmates. Finding the killer can trigger “punishment” cutscenes, in which acts of violence are depicted: students killed by a pitching machine, run over by a truck, crushed to death. There are also depictions of characters getting impaled by spikes and knives.

Blood is frequently depicted on and around dead bodies. During the course of the game, the dialogue contains suggestive material (e.g., “Like I’d w-want to go anywhere with a dirty slut like you,” “It’s not some pervy ‘adult’ video or anything” and “He…abused me…And he…he took pictures”). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the game.

The content descriptors are as follows: Blood, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes.

Personally, I can’t wait. Danganronpa is a very unique series, and it’ll make a very worthy addition to the PS Vita library, bringing even more variety than what we already have.
