The ESRB has rated Brutal Legend M for Mature.
What naughty things happen in the game that got the rating? Blood and gore, intense violence, partial nudity, suggestive themes and strong language.
The BBFC rated it a 15 here in the UK not too long ago.
More through the link.
It’s out on “Rocktober”/October 15 for PS3 and 360.

Episode Four of Brutal Thoughts with Jack Black has arrived, promoting Brutal Legend.
It’s after the break courtesy of Joystiq.
Forget Jack Black’s attempt at humor in this video and instead concentrate on the use of the battle axe in the game clips.
Its looks amped, bangin’, spiffy, righteous, and other terminology uttered in the eighties.
Game’s out in “Rocktober”.

Brutal Legend is Jack Black. Jack Black is Brutal Legend. Apparently, though, Double Fine boss Tim Schafer never thought Herr Black would be interested in the title.
“We didn’t think we’d get someone of that calibre in the game,” Schafer said, talking at EA’s spring showcase in London.
“We were just inspired by him. When I saw School of Rock it reminded me of how I’d wanted to make this game for years: just that character, and how sincere he was, how much he loved metal.
“When we cast the voice, we were like, ‘We don’t want to get an imitator. That would just be stupid.’ Then we heard through secondhand information that he really liked Psychonauts, and that gave us the courage to get in touch with him. We pitched him the game, and he loved it. And he signed up.”
It could have been Lemmy, kids.
Brutal Legend ships for PS3 and 360 this October.

Double Fine has released some concept art for Brutal Legend.
You’ll notice that the main character originally looked a lot like Lemmy instead of Jack Black.
Either one would have been fine we reckon, but Lemmy is a whole lot scarier.
Check them out here.
