Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will show some skin

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will feature “deep cleavage” and “partially exposed breasts” according to a statement recently released by the Entertainment Software Rating Board. The game was rated “T for Teen” due to its “language, sweet gore, suggestive themes” and “violence”. Pushed back almost two months, the game will be released on July 29, 2022.

Before describing the sexual content, the ESRB points out the different depictions of violence in the game. “This is a role-playing game in which players follow combatants through a conflict between two nations,” notes the band. “From a third-person perspective, players complete quests and engage in melee combat against enemies (eg, animals, creatures, human bosses). Combat is highlighted with impact sounds, explosions, and cries of pain. Cutscenes depict other instances of violence: characters impaled by the sword, a character shooting himself onscreen, a man stabbing himself offscreen. A handful of scenes depict blood (e.g. droplets falling from an injured character, drops of blood on a character’s face).


Adding to their description of the various forms of violence in the game, the band goes on to say that “some characters/fantasy creatures are designed with revealing armor and/or anatomy (e.g., deep cleavage, partially exposed breasts). “

In addition to this violent and sexual content, the ESRB also points out how “the words ‘shit’, ‘ass’ and ‘bitch’ appear in the dialogue”.

The inclusion of this relatively mature content will come as no surprise to fans of the Xenoblade Chronicles franchise. The developer behind the game, Monolith Software, is well known for its “revealing armor”. The franchise’s first entry even had “partial nudity” according to the ESRB. The description for the second game states that it contains “suggestive material”, including “female characters/creatures wearing outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage” and “camera pans and persistent shots of buttocks and/or breasts”.
