The ESRB has officially rated NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…! The game is scheduled to release on April 23rd, 2021, so it seems everything is good to go for release with the game being rated! You can check out the rating below.

This is an action role-playing game in which players help Nier save his terminally ill sister from an infectious disease. Players explore a futuristic fantasy world, interact with characters, engage in various quests, and battle both humans and creatures (e.g., robots, mutant skeletons, organic shadows) in melee-style combat. Players use swords, spears, and lances to hack/slash at enemies, and a floating book to fire lasers from a distance. Battles are frenetic, often accompanied by explosions, screen-shaking effects, and large blood splatters that stain the ground. Bloodstains are also seen around several corpses. Some sequences depict additional acts of violence: a woman impaled through the chest by a giant spear; a giant shadow creature impaled by a wood column. The game contains some suggestive material: female characters wearing lingerie during battle; a character with partially exposed buttocks and breasts; close-up camera angles of characters’ cleavage. The words “f**k,” “a*shole,” and “sh*t” are heard in the game.
