THE CAPCOM GAME WILL HAVE LESS BLOOD COMPARED TO THE NORTH AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN VERSION
Only a couple of months to go before we can get our hands on the new Resident Evil: Village. The next iteration of this popular survival horror franchise has kept us in high spirits for the gameplay footage and trailers.
He also got a lot of attention for the villains that he will have this time, in addition to maintaining the Resident Evil VII formula, with a first-person perspective and focusing more on surviving against the threats found in the gloomy castle.
However, something that has hardly been shown is the degree of violence that this Capcom video game will have. We know this is a saga full of blood and violence, so we expect to have both grotesque and bloody scenes.
At least on this side of the pond we can be sure that it will be so, but in Japan they will not have the same fate. According to the developer itself, Resident Evil VIII will receive more censorship in the version for the Japanese territory.
NEITHER DECAPITATIONS NOR LOTS OF BLOOD, SAYS CAPCOM
Through the official Twitter account in Japan, Capcom announced that Biohazard Village, as it is known in that nation, will not be the same as the American and European versions. At least not in terms of gore and violence.
According to the question and answer article published by the Japanese company, Resident Evil will be less bloodthirsty for Asians. Among other things, the main changes you will see in the land of the rising sun is that it will not have as much blood as in other territories.
In addition, it will not have beheadings and all the scenes that CERO considers, the one in charge of classifying video games in Japan, will be eliminated from this title. Taking into account the type of content that is generated in that country, it is curious that Resident Evil receives this type of censorship.
