Captain Obvious: Splatterhouse denied rating in Germany

0

Game Captain is reporting that the gore-soaked Splatterhouse has been denied classification by the German classification board and, thus, will not be published in Germany. Hard to imagine that what is being marketed as one of the most brutally violent games this year would somehow not see release in a country known for preventing the sale of violent media. Truly, we should all be shocked.

Namco Bandai aren't stupid or anything. I am certain that nobody was under any illusions as to whether or not this particular game would see release in Germany. Which means that there is a benefit to them submitting a game like this. Such as creating yet one more example for the public to cite when making an argument for the replacement of the USK board with PEGI. And, when the games get denied, people like me write stories about them providing further free publicity on a worldwide scale.

Really amazing how easy it can be to take a bad thing and turn it into a good thing, isn't it? Good for Namco Bandai, I mean, not the gamers of Germany who will have to import their copies of Splatterhouse.
