Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden Gets T Rating By ESRB

by Dean James


Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is the next entry in the longrunning Butoden series. Sparingly making it to the US in the past, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden was announced for the West fairly recently and now it has been officially rated by the ESRB.

To little surprise, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden has been given a T rating by the ESRB for cartoon violence. This is basically on par with most of the series, though this style game is easier to tone down than others.

The official description by the ESRB for why it received this rating can be seen below:

“This is a fighting game in which players battle characters from the Dragon Ball universe. Characters mostly punch and kick each other in an attempt to deplete their opponent’s health meter. Each character can perform special attacks that usually involve dramatic bursts of energy in the form of balls or beams. One-on-one battles are highlighted by frequent yells/cries of pain and impact sounds. Cutscenes sometimes convey characters dying through text/dialogue descriptions.”

These descriptions are very typical for not only the anime series that the game it based on, but also the other games in the Butoden series over the years.

Look for Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden to arrive in the US on October 20 on the Nintendo 3DS.
