The Callisto protocol is too violent for the Japanese review board

After being pushed back by Japanese censors, the Callisto protocol won’t make its way to Japanese consoles and screens in December anyway.

The Computer Entertainment Ratings Organization (CERO) considered horror game The Callisto Protocol – with its ray traced eyeballs and copious entrails – too gory and violent for public consumption, refusing to review it unless Striking Distance Studios agreed to a censored edit for the region. Given CERO’s strict measures, Japanese developers are used to making this compromise, with Capcom softens Resident Evil games (opens in new tab) for their home turf releases.
