Bandai Namco has revealed an alteration that they made to their upcoming monster-slaying game God Eater: Resurrection for the PlayStation Vita.

The company took to Twitter after a livestream event for the game to ask if fans enjoyed it. A twitter user asked the company why they were “censoring this[God Eater: Resurrection]”. Bandai Namco responded that the game will ship with less blood than it’s overseas counterpart and that nothing else was touched.

This change was possibly added to keep the game at a Teen rating for ESRB and Pegi. Additionally, Dualshockers reported that they didn’t notice the change after a hands on with the game at a press event. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

God Eater: Resurrection will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on  June 28 and Steam on August 30.

    I’m extremely skeptic changing the amount of blood magically give you a T rating instead of a M. That or something else was changed too.

    • Steve Baltimore

      My fear is they cut a lot of it out cut scenes and such, cause looking at Gameplay from both I don’t see that much difference.

    • azariosays

      hm, darkening the blood would most likely happen in the case of cut scenes, but i think if they completely cut out a scene i think that’s something they would consider a change.

    • Steve Baltimore

      Making it more black than red would be a good way to handle that tbh.

    • Audie Bakerson

      Blood (and bare tits/non-sexual full frontal) actually is pretty well established as the line between T and M.

      Still absolutely inexcusable.

  • Mr0303

    Oh, FFS! We’re back to the 90s where blood is an issue. Did they change it to sweat or something?

    I was very hyped for the two GE games, but this is just disappointing to hear. From day 1 purchases now they moved into the “maybe” category for me.

    And now they’re toning down the violence. Guess sexual content isn’t the only victim of the censorship monster that has been going on the rampage. I’m not interested to begin with since I gave up on the PS4.

  • Censored and no retail copy for Vita, yeah I’m suddenly losing my interest in this one.

  • Dgnfly

    They should have just made the option to turn it on or off instead of this bullshit. I’m actually not all that interested in this game english dub only.

    Wow, I was expecting more costume and story content alterations, since that seems to be the current trend for censoring these days. But Blood censorship? Since when has a JP game ever needed to tone down the violence/gore to get a lower rating in the NA/EU? I thought it was usually the other way around? But this feels like hearkening back to the 90’s. Not a great feeling TBH.

    Not too sure I can accept this unless Bandai/Namco show proof that the ESRB required them to censor it to get a lower rating. Also not sure I believe them when they say this is the extent of the changes. It seems like a common trend to simply stay silent on full scope of what is being changed and we won’t know until after release.

  • JGuill

    They should just implement a cheat code to enable the blood!

  • Rampaging Zeroroute

    I call BS. I mean, Arkham games pre-Knight really pushed the T rating but I don’t think this does as much.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Unacceptable.

  • Getting a little tired of all the censorship. They’re clearly hoping that more kids/families will pick this up; but with a name like God Eater, they’re probably hoping for too much. It’s pretty stupid, honestly. They’re pissing off fans, to try and appeal to people who aren’t likely to pick this up anyway…

  • j0eeyy_p

    I want to see what is being censored before I decide whether to pick this up. At least here in Europe we are getting physical GE2 for both platforms so there’s that saving grace.

    Is there less blood than Gods Eater Burst?
