Callisto Protocol canceled in Japan after devs refuse to make rating board changes | Biden News


The Callisto Protocol (opens in a new tab), the meaty, goopy space horror game from former Dead Space devs, has been canceled in Japan after a thumbs-down from the country’s Computer Entertainment Rating Organization (CERO). In a statement posted to Twitter, the game’s team says it will cancel the Japanese edition of the game entirely instead of making the necessary changes to soften the board on ratings.

The statement is, of course, in Japanese, but we can provide a basic translation. It reads, “The Japanese version of the Callisto Protocol has been canceled. Right now, it cannot pass the CERO rating,” before going on to say that the team decided that making the changes required by CERO “would not provide the experience that players waiting”, so the game won’t release in Japan at all.
