Age RatingsAge Ratings

Rated PEGI 16 because it features scenes of bloody violence in an arcade setting. Some games feature scenes in which human characters can be stabbed or cut in half, accompanied by blood effects. Violence is not presented in a realistic style, given the arcade nature of the games, and lacks strong injury detail. This game offers players the opportunity to purchase additional games by visiting the platform's store. Some parents or carers may want to be aware of this. Parents, carers or other responsible adults should check to see what is being offered before making any purchase on behalf of a child.

ESRB TEEN with Violence, Blood and Gore, Mild Language, Partial Nudity, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco.
