A Look At The 3rd Birthday's Packaging & ESRB RatingNo surprises here, but look at the cool Twisted Edition that Europe gets!02.09.11 - 4:24 PM
Last week Square Enix finally dated The 3rd Birthday
for us Western fans, and announced some members of the famous voice cast. To exactly no one's surprise, the Entertainment Software Ratings Board has given the third game in the Parasite Eve
series an M rating for the blood, violence, sexy outfits for protagonist Aya Brea (not to mention all that clothing damage she takes) - and oh yeah, that shower scene. To read the full description go here
Square Enix also provided the final packaging art for the North American edition, which looks not unlike the Japanese edition. What's most interesting though is the Twisted Edition that will be available in Europe: It comes complete with an 'CTI Confidential' 48-page artbook which includes concept art and Aya's many costumes, two Aya lithographs, and the game packed into a blood-red PSP case. Buyers will also get a code to download an Aya costume for Lightning in the upcoming Square Enix title Dissidia 012 [duodecim]: Final Fantasy.
The 3rd Birthday for the PlayStation Portable will be available in North America for $29.99 US. The game and its Twisted edition will also appear in Europe in late March for €39.95 and the UK for £34.99.
