The 3rd Birthday Gets Its Shower Scene, Rating Goes Up
Many will remember the shower scene in Parasite Eve II and given Aya's history (and body), fans of the series were hoping for something similar in The 3rd Birthday.
Well, they got it: another shower scene. In speaking with Famitsu, producer Yoshinori Kitase finally decided to toss one in, which actually resulted in a change in rating for the game. Still, Kitase said he realized how important Aya's physical appeal was and adds that the scene in question "is really suggestive." For a peek at it, head over to Siliconera to view the assortment pic. It's a little borderline for us; a couple shots in there could be considered "topless" by the conservatively anal. It's a little funny that director Hajime Tabata apologized to the marketing staff for the rating hike but there's no going back now. The game is out in Japan and we're patiently awaiting news of a North American launch. This, combined with the feature that causes Aya's clothes to tear when she takes damage, has certainly gained plenty of attention from gamers worldwide.
And now, the wait for a full YouTube video of the shower scene in The 3rd Birthday begins. Probably won't take long.
