Ground Zeroes to be censored in Japan

Apparently, a scene in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has been censored in the Japanese version. This reports the French magazine Jeux Video during their impressions of the game. The scene is a ‘gory and painful’ sequence featuring Paz, so possibly this is about the ‘surgery scene’ we saw earlier in the Red Band trailer.


Of course Kojima isn’t too happy about this, saying that the Japanese censors have understood nothing of the symbolic meaning of this scene. The scene’s impact is supposedly ‘reminiscent of a scene from Metal Gear Solid 3’.

The European and American versions remain uncensored.
