The ESRB has confirmed details on Aliens: Infestation, the WayForward-developed DS side-scrolling shooter which was outed by the Australian Classification Board back in May.
According to the ESRB listing:
“This is a sci-fi action platformer in which players control a marine squad on a mission to eradicate alien creatures,” describes the ESRB. “As players run and jump through side-scrolling levels, they use rifles, pistols, flamethrowers, and explosives to kill enemy soldiers and aliens (i.e., “xenomorphs”).
The frenetic battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, explosions, and cries of pain; injured aliens emit green splashes of blood before collapsing to the ground.
Some sequences also depict red blood spurts when human characters are killed (e.g., an alien bursting out of a man’s chest; characters getting bitten by aliens). During the course of the game, players can enter a locker room and see a male character whose buttocks are briefly exposed. The words ‘a*s,’ ‘bastard,’ and ‘hell’ appear in the dialogue.”
SEGA has yet to confirm Infestation, let along whether it will be a boxed title or a DSiWare download, but we’re betting on the later.
