Back in January, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was rated in Japan with a Sexual Content and Violence rating. At first it was believed that being a more reserved culture (in a world where Senrai Kagura exists), was one of the reasons why they had decided to give it a more adult-oriented rating.

Now, the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has also rated Breath of the Wild for North American release, and it has shed more light into why it received such a rating was given earlier.

So there you have it, over-exposed fairies, drunk characters, and suggestive themes. This certainly sounds like the Link of old, but it took long for some rating services to catch up to the little rascal. But those hiccups seem to have pushed the ratings over the edge.
