God Eater Resurrection is making it’s way to the West on June 28 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, and August 30 for PC (via Steam). Speculation of censorship occurred when it was announced that Bandai Namco had altered some of the scenes of blood in the game. These altered scenes take place during devouring segments where the player’s weapon forms fangs that bite into monsters. During these scenes, blood splatters on the screen and grants the player more power. It’s important to note that when the PSP version of God Eater Burst was localized the blood was left in, but a few scenes were completely taken out of the game. Among these scenes was a boob touching segment during the games’ story.
Unfortunately, the bloody scenes in God Eater Resurrection have been toned down for the West, but why? Well, oprainfall spoke with a Bandai Namco representative to not only confirm the changes, but find out if anything else had been taken out. The rep not only verified the toned down blood, but also stated that the previously censored story scenes taken out of God Eater Burst have been put back in for this release of the game.
When we asked why these changes were made, we were told it was to keep the game at a T rating so that it could be bundled with God Eater Rage Burst 2. To ensure both games come out quickly, Bandia Namco is releasing God Eater Rage Burst 2 bundled with a free code for God Eater Resurrection. Evidently, they ran into problems when trying to bundle a M rated game with a T rated game in the West. No other changes were reported during the conversation about the upcoming game.
God Eater: Resurrection will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on June 28 and Steam on August 30.
