ESRB rates Iron Brigade for PC release

It seems that a new title isn't the only change in store for the game formerly known as Trenched. Now labelled Iron Brigade in all territories following a trademark dispute in Europe, an ESRB rating has surfaced suggesting the game may also be set to appear on a new platform before too long.

The new entry, which is rated T for Teen (due to "Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Use of Tobacco, Violence") has been listed for both Xbox 360 and PC, sparking rumours that Double Fine is planning a second launch.

Iron Brigade

According to the ESRB:

This is a third-person shooter in which players pilot and control giant weaponized mechs to defend against robotic enemies. Players use machine guns, sniper canons, and grenade launchers to kill waves of enemy creatures and larger bosses. The combat can be frenetic at times, and is accompanied by realistic gunfire and explosions; enemies fall to pieces and disappear when defeated.

The, ahem, "suggestive themes" are primarily included in magazine covers or character descriptions - referring to "The Sex-Beast of Route 66", "Saucy Succubi of Transylvania" and the obviously perverted pilot who "loves to sleep with his wife".

As fitting for wartime adventures, several characters smoke cigars and cigarettes (less of a big deal back then, of course). We're also warned the game includes unrated, user-generated online features.

...so yeah. Placeholder entry, or promise of something new from Tim Schafer and his team? We haven't heard anything specific about a PC release of Iron Brigade, but the ratings board wouldn't lie to you, would it?
