A rating for Corpse Party: Blood Drive for Nintendo Switch has popped up on the ESRB’s website. While not officially confirmed yet, this usually means that a release of the game is coming up sometime soon. Corpse Party: Blood Drive was initially released for Playstation Vita in 2014; a version of the game for mobile phones has also come out since. The ESRB gave the Switch version an M rating for “Blood, Partial Nudity, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes, Violence”. Here’s the ESRB’s description of the game:
This is a survival-horror adventure game in which players help students escape a haunted school. From an over-head perspective, players traverse environments, avoid monsters, and interact with various objects and characters. Cutscenes sometimes depict various acts of violence: a man stabbing himself with a knife; a character crucified and burned. Violence is also described in text (e.g., “She continued to hack at me, again and again. . . From behind me, I could hear the sound of blood gushing into the air from the gaping hole above my neck”). Blood is frequently depicted near corpses and when characters are injured. During the course of the game, a handful of sequences depict characters whose nude bodies are partially obscured by lights, steam, and/or other body parts. Some sequences are accompanied by suggestive dialogue (e.g.,“Not that I’d expect you to be too turned on by these raisins o’mine,” “Hey, stop jiggling them,” “And where do you think you’re touching?! Those are my boobs!”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in dialogue.
