CoD: Black Ops censored in Japan

Blowing off limbs gets the chop

Square-Enix has announced that Japan's version of Call of Duty: Black Ops will be censored so that players can't blow off character's body parts.

The move comes after Black Ops was slapped with a CERO Z certificate, which is the equivalent of on Adults Only rating over here.

Sqaure said on its Japanese website that the rating had enough influence to see the game censored so that the Japanese dubbed version wouldn't sport limbs leaving bodies thanks to explosions.


One thing that won't feature in Black Ops worldwide is a co-op campaign mode. On the plus side, however, there will be split-screen online multiplayer.
