The Callisto Protocol is too violent for the Japanese classification board

After the Japanese censors’ rejection, The Callisto Protocol won’t be hitting Japanese consoles and screens in December after all.

The Computer Entertainment Ratings Organization (CERO) considered the horror game The Callisto Protocol – with its ray-traced eyeballs and viscera plentiful – too bloody and violent for public consumption, refusing to rate it unless Striking Distance Studios agreed to a censored edition for the region. Given CERO’s stringent measures, Japanese developers are used to making this commitment, with Capcom tones down Resident Evil games (opens in new tab) for your releases at home.
