BBFC gives Soul Calibur IV a 12, no bare ass involved

The BBFC has given Soul Calibur IV a 12 rating, thanks in part to the fact you can’t strip the female characters to the nude.

“The game… contains some female warrior characters with exaggerated ‘curvy’ figures accentuated by skimpy costumes,” said the body. “They are presented in a comic book manner and although the game allows characters’ costumes to be customised, the player is not able to create a character with full breast or buttock nudity.”

Game’s out on August 1.

Thanks, DarkZero.
