Back at the end of 2022, Koei Tecmo announced a new collaboration with Type-Moon in the form of Fate/Samurai Remnant, which will be available on Switch sometime in 2023. This is a brand new action RPG based on Type-Moon’s Fate visual novel series, which began with Fate/stay night.

Outside of the debut trailer and a few scant details, we haven’t heard too much about the game, but that changes today with an ESRB rating. While it doesn’t give a ton of specifics, we do get to see some of the actions and content the game will have to offer. You can see the full ESRB description below.

This is an action game in which players follow the story of a swordsman during the Edo Period of Feudal Japan. Players explore cities, interact with characters, complete objectives, and engage in melee-style combat. Players use swords to battle human enemies (e.g., ninjas, samurai) and fantastical creatures (e.g., demons, ghosts) in fast-paced combat.

Battles are highlighted by sword-slashing effects, cries of pain, and blood-splatter when characters are hit. Cutscenes depict additional instances of violence and blood/gore: characters decapitating serpent creatures; a character’s severed arm falling to the ground; a character impaled through the chest—blood pooling underneath the body.

During the course of the game, the text makes several references to brothels and prostitution (e.g., “…{M]aybe we could keep that brothel map our little secret”; “…prices for time with a courtesan are quite high”; “It wouldn’t be known for prostitution anymore.”). The dialogue contains references to alcohol and tobacco (e.g., “A sweet, easy-to-drink, luxury sake”; “I’m quite fond of this country’s liquor”; “A favorite among drunkards at the food stalls”; “A vermillion pipe with burnt tobacco inside”); a handful of sequences depict characters holding smoking pipes. The word “sh*t” appears in the game.
