Age Rating for Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

This is a role-playing game in which players help a group of fighters retrieve a stolen artifact. Players traverse a fantasy world, interact with characters, complete quests, and engage in melee-style combat against humans and fantastical creatures (e.g., giant tortoises, wild beasts, dragons). Players use swords, knives, whips, and magic spells to defeat enemies in frenetic combat. Cutscenes depict additional instances of violence and/or blood: a character stabbed in the stomach; a man slashed with a sword, causing blood to spray out; dead wolves amid pools of blood. The game contains some suggestive material: characters wearing outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage; dialogue pertaining to breast size (e.g., “No need to be so sassy, Flatty McChesterson” and “Like my boobs could fill out that top”); scenes involving a man peeping at women bathing. Within some environments, players can engage in poker games and exchange winnings for in-game currency. Players can also enter taverns and interact with townspeople who slur their speech when ordering drinks; alcohol is also referenced in the text (e.g., "Nothing is solved by drinking. I know that. But I can't get by without my alcohol."). The words "a*s" and "bastard" are heard in the game.
This game has received a PEGI 12 because it features mild violence, realistic violence of a minor nature towards human characters, moderate violence to fantasy characters, use of offensive language and encouragement of gambling. Not suitable for persons below 12 years of age.
