Callisto Protocol (Opens in a new tab)The horror game from former developer Dead Space has been canceled in Japan after receiving a thumbs up from the country’s Computer Entertainment Rating Organization (CERO). In a statement posted on Twitter, the game’s team said it would cancel. Completely released the game in Japan. Instead of making the necessary changes to worsen the ratings board.
This text is in understandable Japanese. But we can provide a basic translation. It reads, “The Japanese version of the Callisto protocol has been discontinued. It currently fails to pass the CERO rating,” before going on to say that the team decided that the necessary changes to CERO would “do not provide the experience that players were expecting”, so the game would not be released in Japan at all.
as you hoped Japanese players who pre-ordered the game will receive a refund. Unfortunately, the game has reached this blind spot thanks to the Japanese rating board. This statement does not address the reason CERO turned its back on the game. But it shouldn’t be too surprising if the game’s absurd violence disturbs regulators. CERO is known for its sensitivity to gore and fragmentation, and The Callisto Protocol has it all in spades. (Opens in a new tab).
Whatever the reason for CERO Responding to a tweet announcing the cancellation was filled with Japanese players who were unhappy with the news and were displeased with CERO, with more than a few people slyly asking if the game’s international release still has a Japanese language option. no This can be a slightly tricky way for dedicated fans to get their hands on the game, even if CERO denies it.
They will be answered when The Callisto Protocol releases in the coming months, December 2nd via Steam.

Actually When I thought about it, maybe CERO had the right idea.
