After an impossibly long period of hype, the October release of Resident Evil 6 seems to be relatively close. There's been plenty revealed in recent weeks, along with footage of the game itself, but it seems that the American ESRB has gone into some of the reasons for giving the title a 'mature' rating, with one in particular standing out.

As well as "blood and gore" and "intense violence", a rather bizarre boss encounter contributes to the title's nudity and suggestive themes. ESRB describes the following scene:

One female boss character (a human-spider hybrid) is depicted nude-though without any discernible details (i.e., no nipples or genitalia). During one attack move, she briefly caresses her breasts while straddling on players' character. The words 'f**k' and 'sh*t' can be heard in the dialogue.

It's all a far cry from shooting zombies in a creepy mansion.
