The land of Japan is laying down the law with black censor bars. At least, unless you’re willing to fork out a little more money.
The upcoming hack-and-slash cheerleader-based zombie killer Lollipop Chainsaw is going to have two versions of the game released, one for 17 and under and one for 18 and up. The 18 and up version faces some harsher purchasing restrictions, but will feature the gore as the game developer intended it.
Censorship is always tough for games, and it’s strange that the land of tentacle rape would be worried about violence, but who are we to pass judgement? The US version, as far as we know, will not be touched.
