Back for another pseudo-Survive update.

The Australian Classification ratings board classified Survive in August, in September Brazil did, Korea did in October, then a month ago Taiwan did.


The world tour hits the US as we have ratings info from the ESRB

survivetesrb_esrb1_2021.png


It was rated "T" for Teen. This is the third rating on the ESRB scale in the US after E (Everyone) and E10+ (10 and older). The 'T' rating is stated as suitable for 13 and older.

Basically it can have moderately more violence, minimal blood, infrequent language, etc.


They note Survive got T for: Crude Humor, Fantasy Violence, Language, Mild Blood.

The full ratings summary...
This is a visual novel, with strategy/role-playing game elements, in which players follow Japanese teenagers lost in a world of monsters. As players follow the storyline, they periodically engage in turn-based battles using Digimon (monsters with special powers/abilities). As human and Digimon characters move around grid-like battlefields, players select attack moves/skills from a menu and watch short animations of monsters executing moves. Attacks can include kicking, biting, blasts of energy, and elemental bursts. One cutscene briefly depicts a still image of a bloodstained corpse. Out of a variety of attack moves, Digimon can perform a Poop Toss, which is depicted as a cartoony poo coil thrown at opponents, and is accompanied by squishy sound effects. The words “sh*t,” “b*tch,” and “p*ssed” appear in the dialogue.





Overall this lines up roughly with what we saw from previous countries, and is what we expected it to be rated in the US.

Thanks to Gematsu for the heads up that it had been rated in the US

YOOOO!! As edgy as I seem saying it, Teen rating with a note of blood is something nice to see as it could mean the tone of the trailer could still be accurate to the tone of the game

When's the celebration party

Decent amount of info in there. Pic of a bloody corpse is pretty crazy and it saying "Poop Toss", the recent dub name for Numemon's attack, makes me confident it'll be a Worldwide day one release very soon. Just Europe and Japan left for the main ratings now

Also your post about each Country it does it in, that's once per month lmao so January next!

Also the part about it being a "visual novel with rpg elements" is an interesting comment, I guess it's mostly about the story with minimal combat.

Incredibly funny to me that poop toss got more attention in the rating description than the literal bloody corpse

It took over three years but we seem to be getting closer to that fabled release. I can't wait to try it once it comes out, and based on the rating description it seems it should still keep the atmosphere that they said they were going for.

From what I've seen over the years, there could be a scene where the enemy Digimon write the lyrics to the digirap with the guy's organs and the ESRB would still be focusing more on poop and nudity

Hopefully this means we're getting a trailer soon and maybe a March release.

Worst case scenario this just drops in January with no promotion whatsoever

What are you talking about with the worldwide release? This game is basically guaranteed to come out everywhere at the same time

If i recall correctly, world next order was release in the 2016 for the vita system and then the year after the game receive a PS4 version for europe,US and Japan. So it's not tecnically a global release, but a closed one yes. Hopefully Bandai will release in the same time survive everywhere :D

No celebration party until it's in my hands.

As an American, I can confirm that the censors will totally ignore blood and violence, but show anything even remotely construable with natural bodily functions and they'll have a conniption about it.

Also it seems to be because of how Xbox One games work now, but it mentions that an Xbox Series version of the game will be available (but not PS5). I do find that interesting though I guess it wouldn't have mattered anyway with backwards compatibility (but: not all games are listed as being on Xbox Series as well recently, this tweet seems to indicate that if you release a game on Xbox One physically you have to say it's coming out on Series as well? confusing)


whatever the matter, it seems a Series version is also a thing, which is technically a new confirmation.
