Stellar Blade will have the same uncensored version in all countries

Shift Up! has officially confirmed that Stellar Blade will be uncensored in every country. This follows weeks of controversy around the main character.

I haven't actually seen anything the needs to be censored.

CrimsonWing6926d ago

I mean, things like cleavage, sexy outfits, jiggle physics, and even gore have been censored. For the west they dramatically cut down on the suggestive themes and titillation. The game is surprisingly gory, which Japan heavily censors.

True, but they censored Trish’s buttcrack in Devil May Cry 5, so they’re weird about shit sometimes.

jznrpg26d ago

There should be no censor in M rated games. That’s why it’s rated M.

Now I am forced to support it for good behavior.

I love how Ring Fit Adventure pops it's head back in the top 10 telling us that people ate too much during golden week!

I laughed my ass of at the score.

coolbeans2d ago

Yeah. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and read what they have to say, but it's suspicious in the face of other recent indies that've been praised.

Levii_922d ago

I bet Edge is gonna give Breath of the Wild 3.0 a 10 again.

Anyone else playing Stellar Blade and made it to the Great Desert?

I felt the story barely had us do anything here but there are a lot of side quests taking us back and the framerate is kind of all over the place. Curious if anyone else is noticing the same?

It's the only blemish so far in what's surprisingly become my current GOTY.

Levii_922d ago

I don't see how can the framerate be all over place? It's litteraly one of the most stable games released, unless maybe you have it on Balanced mode, put it on Resolution or Framerate mode.

And yes the Great Desert is almost exclusively just a gorgeous big zone for side quests and fun.

Tacoboto2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Yeah that's what's surprising me - the rest of the game even on Balanced feels like a solid 60fps (and my display is 120hz VRR).

But even on Prioritize Performance it feels like it struggles in certain spots only in the Great Desert. The Buried Ruins section felt like the roughest area but another one was more into the desert near a statue with scaffolding wrapped around (and a dozen or so enemies including the tentacles).

All the side quests I had there are done now so I may only return now to fish again. But framerate aside I agree - it's one of the more beautiful gaming deserts and this game's side quests have been way more nice and varied than I thought they'd be.

Levii_922d ago

I have to say i haven't explored the Great Desert 100% maybe just 40%, i plan on exploring everything there on NG+ so i don't know how Buried Ruins feel yet and also i'm running the game unpatched so maybe that's it i don't know but for me the Great Desert is perfect framerate wise if it's not on Balanced mode.

I absolutely agree man, the game is much more than i thought it would be in terms of content, exploration, collectables, secrets and side quests. Classic video game stuff! None of the modern BS. It's my GOTY as well so far.

VersusDMC2d ago

From what i remember the 2 open world hubs only have 1 story mission each. The gun missons. Most of the open world sections are for side missions, upgrades, cans,costumes, etc. Still fun to run around and discover some wierd puzzles there.

I feel like there are some fps dips but not all over the place.

And for people who don't do enough of the side missions...know that you will be locked out of a section of the game if you don't do enough. Fill that lily bar to 100%.

Elda2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Stellar Blade a 6? That score is blasphemy. Score should be a 9, no lower than an 8. It's GOTY.

badz1492d ago

It's EDGE! The only games they are generously rating are Nintendo games.
