Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

This game is visually breathtaking, the combat is barely gory. Although some clothing can be a bit revealing, it's not too serious though. I have to say I even enjoyed watching my kid playing this game. She fell in love with the characters and the story line. This is a must have game.

I cannot say enough good about this game. The characters are amazing, there are really funny battle quotes and there is an awesome open-world design which emphasizes exploration which is awesome. I think the developers definitely put their all into creating this game to make it the best they could. It's completely different from a lot of other games I've seen and trust me, I've seen a lot of video games during my life. Definitely recommend it for lots of people. Keep up the good work Monolith and Nitendo!
