Age Rating for Octopath Traveler

This is a role-playing game in which players follow a story, through the perspectives of eight different characters, in the fantasy world of Orsterra. As players explore villages and caves, they interact with locals and battle brigands, monsters, demons, and other fantastical creatures. Combat is turn-based, with players selecting attack moves from a menu. Characters use swords, spears, and magic attacks (e.g., ice spikes, fireballs) to defeat enemies; battles are highlighted by cries of pain, impact sounds, and light effects. One boss character is depicted with a bloody sickle and a bottle of blood; a pool of blood also appears in a cutscene. A handful of female characters wear outfits that reveal large amounts of cleavage; the dialogue also contains suggestive material (e.g., “That naughty mouth of yours belongs to me. Put it where it belongs...” and "Master...go pleasure yourself."). One sequence requires players to spike a barrel of wine and give it to others; another scene depicts a slurring, hiccupping man called “Crest-bearing drunk.” The word “bastard” appears in dialogue.
