If easily offended by cartoon blood, look away now.Rising Star Games are afraid that their latest title, No More Heroes, will receive the same fate as ManHunt 2 in Europe if they leave the game unedited and try to get it past the UK's BBFC censors. They're not willing to take that risk and therefore the sword-slashing Wii title will be edited for European release, so we'll be treated to the same version that Japanese gamers have, with less violence and less blood.
Okay, so you can chop heads off and slice people in two, but the graphics are hardly photo-realistic, it's animé after all.
This is just one of the trailers to have been released in the last year. If easily offended, by cartoon blood, don't watch it.
It seems that the BBFC tactics, their recent refusal of ManHunt 2 and the increasingly strict ratings system are already making developers think twice about the violence that they use in their games. Rising Star Games aren't even going send the original uncut version to them, they're just going to assume that it wouldn't pass.
Let's hope others don't do the same.
