Stellar Blade is ‘censored’ everywhere

April 22, 2024 by No Comments

According to a recent message posted by ShiftUp, the developer behind Stellar Blade, the upcoming PS5 exclusive will be ‘uncensored’ in all countries ‘including the Japanese version’. Surprisingly, Stellar Blade managed to pass some censorship standards, which is surprising considering the controversy surrounding the protagonist’s appearance. A regulator gave the game a higher age rating based on the ‘jiggling breasts’.

Stellar and uncensored

Stellar Blade is an amazing game on the surface, with intense combat, an immersive and original story, and great world-building from ShiftUp. However, many critics could not separate themselves from the ‘eye-candy’ protagonist – and some of the supporting characters. ShiftUp wanted to create a traditionally beautiful lead character, and to achieve that, they scanned the body of a South Korean model.

There’s plenty of revealing clothing and behind that, the game’s combat mechanics make for a gruesome affair, with pools of blood and beheadings being the order of the day. It’s a wonder it’s not censored anywhere in the worldBut no one complains about it.

Stellar Blade will be released exclusively on PlayStation 5 on April 26.
