The lights are on
Atlus is bringing the fourth in the long-running Japanese RPG series to our shores in February, looks like this one has some…innovative…new features.
The website Siliconera, which specializes in covering the hardcore Japanese gaming scene, spotted this intriguing development in the game's ESRB rating summary. Etrian Odyssey IV will earn a T rating for Mild Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, and Mild Suggestive Themes…and lady boners, apparently.
This is a role-playing game in which players control a group of fighters that explore fantastical labyrinths. Players engage in turn-based combat against a variety of fantasy creatures (e.g., large insects, slime creatures, sorcerers), selecting moves from a menu-based set of options. Attack moves are accompanied by light effects, bashing sounds, and hit point values. One labyrinth contains a hallway and a door that is stained with blood; a bear is also depicted with red stains on its fur and claws. A few female characters are depicted wearing bikini/low-cut tops that expose deep cleavage; one line of suggestive dialogue states, ‘I gotta lady boner harder dan steel for dat stuff!’ The words “***,” “damn,” and “hell” appear in dialogue.
Ladies and gentlemen, 2013's "best writing in a video game" award is already sewn up. Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan releases in the U.S. for Nintendo 3DS on February 26, 2013.

Anyone who's played an ATLUS game shouldn't be surprised. Can't wait for this game!
Only one problem I see in this picture. It is only on the 3DS. That is my only complaint. OTher than that. Well it is Atlus. Who is truly surprised? After all they bring us strange titles all the time from Japan and we really love for it as they rarely fail.
O.o Well then......
well i know what game im getting :D
That was great lol this really made my day
So, hypothetically, how does a lady boner work?
i want this game. XD
sounds like something Dan will like.
AHHH this cracked me up.
oh atlus, what will you think of next?
Ha, thanks Japan!
Ahhhh... the 3DS.
Oh lord, very funny. The Japanese industry never ceases to amaze me. And I'm pretty much sold on this game!
This is now a contender for Game of the Year.
We shall use her nips to break through doors that require keys. Her lady boner will prove most useful in more than one way
I'm trying to think of what possible 3 letter word would need to asterisked out of existence? The only two I can come up with is ass and tit. Neither of which is exactly the F word.
Anyway this is pretty damn funny, and I've definitely found a new catch phrase to throw out into the world. Let's all embrace it, and make ‘I gotta lady boner harder dan steel for dat stuff!’ a household thing. Enjoy your Tuesday.
