Injustice 2 has received the rating from ESRB, the Entertainment Software Rating Board, and to my surprise, the game got T for TEEN rating. Now some of you might ask why Surprise as the previous Injustice game was also rated T from ESRB, the answer is that going by the detail rating summary I can say that Injustice 2 must have been really close to getting an M for Mature rating. You guys can read the full rating summary below.
This is a fighting game in which players engage in one-on-one battles with popular heroes and villains from the DC Comics universe. Players punch, kick, and use a variety of weapons (e.g., knives, swords, machine guns, laser blasters) to drain opponents’ health meters in melee-style combat.
Matches are highlighted by impact sounds, splashes of blood, and colorful light effects as fighters are hurled across the screen or to the ground. As players engage in fantasy combat, they can trigger super attacks and transitional attacks that propel opponents from different levels of fighting arenas. Some super attacks depict blood-splatter effects as characters are injured by creatures and/or impaled with swords. Cutscenes depict additional instances of violence and blood: a character impaled with a sword; a prisoner lying in a small pool of blood; a character stabbed with a trident; a villain’s throat slashed off-screen.
The game’s dialogue contains brief sexual references (‘They’re thieves. Rapists. Murderers.’), and some female characters wear revealing outfits (deep cleav$%^, tight-fitting clothing) and/or perform suggestive poses. One fight setting takes place in a bar with several alcohol references: signs that read ‘Beer’; drunk patrons in the background; kegs of beer that can be thrown at opponents. The word ‘s**t’ is heard in dialogue.
