Resident Evil Village Will Be Censored in Japan - 2 min read

Japanese gamers will have a slightly different Village experience.

Resident Evil Village

The Japanese ratings board, named CERO, has been known to be a little skittish when it comes to violence.

However, their solution is a bit different from the ESRB‘s, the American equivalent. Oftentimes, CERO allows modified versions of a game to be made, so as to allow those under 18 to play it with less gruesome visuals.

Such is the case for Resident Evil Village, it seems. According to a Japanese tweet from Capcom, which was translated by BHd friend, Alex Aniel, the game will have a bit of content toned down. It’ll even have two different versions.

It seems that neither version will feature decapitations, a series staple by this point. It also will have certain scenes censored, though the nature of said scenes is a mystery for now.

Capcom doesn’t seem worried about this, and neither should Japanese gamers. While there’s nothing to be done with the PlayStation versions, PC players will likely have a workaround created within the week of launch.

For us Western fans, Resident Evil Village will remain uncensored, a point of worry for many a Japanese game fan. After all, we sometimes see bizarre censorship on Japanese title, such as Tokyo Mirage Sessions seeing female characters hip bones being smoothed out.

Either way, gamers will get to see exactly what CERO was worried about when Resident Evil Village launches on May 7th.
