Bandai Namco US took to Twitter recently to address a concern over censorship, and in the process revealed that God Eater: Resurrection would be censored in the West.
If you’re a fan of getting Japanese games as they were meant to be released, you’re in for some bad news – God Eater: Resurrection will have blood effects toned down in the Western release, and will do so to retain a lower than “Mature” rating.
@voltronraider Hello James – There's just a bit less blood in the US/EU versions for ESRB/PEGI ratings. No other content is being censored.

With blood being censored – but nothing else apparently getting the editing treatment – are you okay with their decision to appeal to a wider audience?
Looking to Twitter it seems there are mixed opinions, with some users wondering whether the reduction of blood will have an effect on the title’s tone. Personally I share this worry, though we definitely need to see a comparison to know for sure.
God Eater: Resurrection releases July 28th in North America and August 30th in Europe.
