PlatinumGames, the developers of Mad World, have stated that at the moment there aren’t any plans to release Mad World in any of the censorship heavy countries like Germany, Australia or Japanâ€¦ I didn’t even know Japan was censorship heavy.
Honestly I don’t blame them at all, they have an art style and plan for their game and I see no reason why they should soften it up just because certain governments don’t think their gamers can handle it.
It really is pretty pathetic, especially when you consider that ultra-violent movies seem to be aired with no problems what so ever.
No news on whether or not South Africa will be getting Mad World, but I don’t think the chances are high. Purely as our market isn’t big enough to justify the riskâ€¦ they really should though, this game could become a huge cult hit.
