The Entertainment Software Rating Board today revealed their rating summary for the upcoming multiplatform title, Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection. The compilation received a T (for Teen) rating due to cartoon violence, crude humor, mild blood, use of tobacco. You can check out the latest screenshots from the remastered anime fighting games in the slideshow at the top of this article and the full rating summary from the ESRB below:
This is a fighting game in which players engage in one-on-one battles against characters from the Dragon Ball Z universe. Players frequently punch, kick, and use special attacks (e.g., fireballs, colorful energy bursts) to drain opponents' health. Impact sounds and loud cries of pain can be heard during each battle. Animated cutscenes also contain violent acts, including the depiction of a character chopping a giant creature's tail. A handful of sequences portray wounded fighters with bruises, cuts, and blood stains on their bodies. One male character's outfit becomes tattered during combat, exposing part of his buttocks in the process; and a pre-battle sequence also includes instances of crude humor (e.g., “I'm . . . suddenly gettin' a pain in my gut. Ohh gotta hang . . . on . . . oh” and “Defeat Vegeta within the time limit to make it to the bathroom!”). One arena mode depicts a man smoking from a pipe on its menu screen.
Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection includes the remastered ports of Dragon Ball Z Budokai 1 and Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3. The compilation will be released for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year.
