Rating Summary
This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of a high-school student traversing a nether realm in Tokyo. Players explore the environment, interact with characters, and battle demonic creatures in turn-based combat. Players select weapon and magic attacks/demonic abilities to kill enemies; battles are accompanied by light effects, impact sounds, and screams of pain. Some attacks result in blood-splatter effects, while pools of blood are seen in some areas. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a character impaled through the chest; a character impaling a woman with a sword. The game depicts several female monsters with partially exposed breasts and buttocks; one creature appears with a phallic-shaped head and torso. A handful of demons (e.g., Succubus, Incubus) are described with sexual characteristics (e.g., “They are known to visit men/women in their sleep and have sex with them”; “…said to engage in intercourse with human women….”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the game.
