Aliens: Infestation details revealed by ratings board

Contra 4 developer making side-scrolling Aliens platformer for DS

Aliens: Infestation, first revealed by Australia's Classifications Board in May, is a side-scrolling platformer for DS, according to US ratings body the ESRB.


Developed by Wayforward Technologies, the studio behind A Boy and His Blob and Contra 4, the title's due to be published by Sega.

As spotted by Siliconera, the US classification body has granted the game a Teen rating, noting that it features blood, mild language, partial nudity and violence.

Here's what the ESRB had to say about it:

This is a sci-fi action platformer in which players control a marine squad on a mission to eradicate alien creatures. As players run and jump through side-scrolling levels, they use rifles, pistols, flamethrowers, and explosives to kill enemy soldiers and aliens (i.e., "xenomorphs"). The frenetic battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, explosions, and cries of pain; injured aliens emit green splashes of blood before collapsing to the ground. Some sequences also depict red blood spurts when human characters are killed (e.g., an alien bursting out of a man's chest; characters getting bitten by aliens). During the course of the game, players can enter a locker room and see a male character whose buttocks are briefly exposed. The words "a*s," "bastard," and "hell" appear in the dialogue.
