Japan says "Sayonara" to Dead Space as ban received (Germany and China too)
The recent release date shifts of Dead Space continues - but not in a good way. In fact, if you're reading this in Japan, Germany or China and have been looking forward to EA's sci-fi survival-horror dismember-athon, you might want to brace yourself. The release date in these countries has now moved to, well, never.
Destructoid seems to have the scoop on the ban, quoting Dead Space Community Manager Andrew Green that the gruesome antics onboard the bad-ship Ishimura have been banned outright in the aforementioned countries.
Details are still emerging and we'll put a call out to EA to see if they can comment with any further information as it's likely cuts to the game will enable an eventual release in these affected regions.
For the rest of us, expect to slice and dice alien scum on the 14th of October.
