Although 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim has been available on other platforms for a few years now, Atlus is still concerned about spoilers in the lead-up to the Switch version's release next week. To combat this, it's enforcing streamer guidelines to ensure nobody ruins the surprise.
Here's the breakdown: Streamers will be required to warn viewers of spoilers in the title of their streams, so everyone is aware of this before clicking on a video. It also doesn't want any spoilers in the description or thumbnail images, either.
It doesn't end there...Atlus also forbids anyone from streaming past the ending cutscene after the final battle. In fact, you can't even "replay" the final cutscene in the game's video archive. Here's precisely what it said, courtesy of Siliconera:
“Additionally, please do not stream content past the ending cutscene after the final battle or replay the final cutscenes within the game’s archive.”
Steamers will also be required to mention the copyright of Atlus and Sega in their streams. Atlus also doesn't want anyone streaming the game's soundtrack by itself.
And for anyone who plans to play this game on Switch when it is released next week, be aware that there are probably already spoilers floating around as the game was originally released on PlayStation 4 in 2019/20.
