Anyone who's saying 7-12 clearly hasn't played the game.
The game is not exactly for children. Presentation might be, but the battle system will **** a kid up. It gets more and more complex since you're managing 12 characters at once, while trying to maintain damage and stay alive.
12 and over. There are children in the world younger than this that can beat games like this but very few. It's not a matter of skill more of matter of patience, which many younger kids don't have. They want a lot of instant gratification.
I could see a soccer mom not wanting to let their child play this game because of cursing, since they damn and hell quite a few times. Even Drippy said hell though he said like helluva lol. I treat it like a family movie (like Disney and Pixar). For those who don't understand what a family movie is go look it up.
If your in it for the battle system though I'd say you'll like it. Since I have both of those games and enjoy them plus I enjoy NNK.
