The [London] Sun reports that the PlayStation game Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix will star a pair of lesbian crime fighters. Hana and Rain will be battling evil together in a relationship the game’s booklet describes as “partners and more.” One scene apparently features the two reading a gun magazine while Rain caresses Hana’s shoulders. A spokeswoman for the game’s manufacturer, Eidos, admits that “there are a few risqué pictures.” The game carries a 15 certificate, meaning that the product is intended for consumers age 15 or older.
