Tekken 7 has 'deep cleavage,' laxatives, pizza, a peeping Tom, and flatulence, according to the ESRB

It's pretty clear that the developers of the Tekken series love tossing humorous elements into their fighting games. Tekken 7, for example, will feature some of the goofiest equip-able items we've ever seen in a competitive fighter.

But it looks like this time around, Bandai Namco didn't limit the funny to just unlockables. According to the ESRB's summary of their Tekken 7 rating, we'll be seeing more outlandish things sprinkled across the rest of the game.

The ESRB notes that the game contains crude humor, mild blood, mild language, suggestive themes, violence, however, the specifics are the best part. Players can expect to see "deep cleavage" that sometimes gets zoomed in on, a scene involving laxatives and flatulence, and quite a bit more.

You can read the summary below.

Tekken is one of the most celebrated series in fighting game history, both commercially and critically, and during its 23-year history, a lot of things have happened, some more known than others.

Did You Know Gaming's latest video goes into detail on many of Tekken's lesser known intricacacies such as how the series' juggling originated, the extremely simple reason Tekken Force was introduced as a mode in Tekken 3, and one astoundingly bizarre character left out of Tekken 3's release, but still present in the game's data.

Tekken 7 adding some of the most goofy things you'll see in a fighting game - and I totally want them

Tekken 7 has some of the most ridiculous custom items available to players, and I badly want them.

These items include animations which activate as you fight with them equipped.

Although, if Akuma is able to use his shotgun during the course of the match, it might create a slightly unfair advantage...

Kidding aside, these items are just for visually enhancing your characters, but these are some of the most goofy, and yet still awesome, things I've seen in a fighting game.

He'll be joining the cast of Tekken 7: Fated Retribution upon release on June 2, 2017. Here are some screen shots, and you'll catch the full trailer below.
