ESRB issues rating for “Call of Juarez: Gunslinger” on Nintendo Switch
The ESRB recently posted a new listing for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger on the Nintendo Switch. Originally developed by Techland for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2013 (damn…), Gunslinger is the fourth game in the Call of Juarez series. From the look of the rating, the violence and adult themes all appear to have made the transition to the Nintendo Switch intact. Yee-haw!
Here’s the full listing straight from the ESRB:
This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a gunslinger named Silas Greaves. Players use pistols, shotguns, and rifles o shoot and kill dozens of enemy bandits/thugs in gun fights. Shootouts are highlighted by realistic gunfire, cries of pain, slow-motion effects, and large splashes of blood, which sometimes stain the ground. Each level ends with a duel in which players must draw and aim a gun to kill an opponent. Some dialogue in the game includes sexual material (e.g., “While you’re off providing for the family, she’s spreading her legs for every Tom, Dick, and Cole Younger!”). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c**ksucker” appear in dialogue.
All of this sounds like a damn good time to me. In case you were unaware, the words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c**ksucker” are “fuck”, “shit”, and “cocksucker”, respectively.
Techland released a trailer for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger in 2018, which features references to Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2. At the time, it seemed like either a good-spirited nod to the return of the Red Dead series, or a quick way to capitalize on Red Dead Redemption 2‘s success and tease that a Call of Juarez revival was in the works.
There is no release date for when the Nintendo Switch will release, or if there will be any Switch-exclusive features. HD rumble to mimic my six-shooting sidearm? I could go with that. Make it happen, Techland!
