XSEED Games has Rated Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven for the 3DS

lord of magna maiden heaven 02-05-15-1

We’ve learned (via Gematsu) that Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven has been rated for the 3DS by the ESRB.

The rating, filed by XSEED Games, is following the clear tease last month that the game would be localized.

You can find the rating below, and it’s worth mentioning the game is rated “T” for “Teen.”

This is a role-playing game in which players help an innkeeper assist a maiden to regain her memories. From a 3/4 over-head perspective, players explore landscapes, interact with characters, and battle fantasy creatures (e.g., dinosaur, gargoyles, robots). Players use swords, guns, and magic spells to defeat enemy creatures in turn-based combat. Battles are accompanied by mild explosions and impact sounds. One sequence depicts a character impaled by a sword. The game contains some suggestive material: a bath house sequence depicting female characters with exposed buttocks and/or partially obscured breasts; a female character scrubbing another character’s breasts; dialogue pertaining to breast size (e.g., “You really lucked out when filling out, huh” and “I wished mine were that big.”). The word “a*s” can be heard in the game.

We’ve reached out to XSEED for comment, and we’ll let you know if we get an answer.

    So is the blacklisting dealt with then?

    “Ass can be heard in the game”? Dub confirmed.

    (Umm, is it normal for the ESRB to censor their own descriptions of games, “a*s” really?)

    Not surprised one bit, if it was rated M on the other hand, that would be a different story.

    The line between T and M has been thin lately. If a game has discussion of breast sizes and stops short of showing a female nipple. That is a lot of games, Senran Kagura for all of the lewd stuff is still in the same place.

    I can’t really be surprised unless something gets AO.

    “We’ve learned (via Gematsu)…”

    “We’ve reached out to XSEED for comment, but we’ll let you guys know if we get an answer.”

    Doesn’t look like it.

    This was an ESRB listing, not a presser. I’m still waiting to hear back from them… :/

    That really sucks. Third parties throwing in wrenches just because. Some people have /no/ professionalism in them.

    There’s something unintentionally hilarious about the ESRB describing the game they rate. It’s like hearing a hoity-toity Englishman describe sex in the cleanest, G-rated way possible.

    I’m pretty interested in this. I always like to keep new JRPGs on my radar.

    Googling lord of magna: maiden heaven.

    It looks like all reviews are only 6 days old, like this one. They could be simply not talking to any publications. It might not just be nichegamer.
