Censorship is a topic that has generated a lot of heated discussion as of late, with some games being modified due to content, specifically on the PlayStation platform. With that in mind, publisher Arc System Works wants to put to bed rumors that one of its games might be censored based on PS4. Arc System Works has confirmed that the upcoming Kill la Kill: If will not be censored for content on any platform, regardless of region.
This comes by way of a tweet from the publisher’s official Twitter account, which said “I’m putting this to bed once and for all, you crazy conspiracy theorists… The game has NOT been censored in anyway. The Japanese, EU, and NA versions are identical. So, just stop it. kthxbai.”
