Capcom happy to keep Resi 5 uber gory

MCV report that Capcom remains very keen on keeping Resident Evil 5 a very violent game, and they flat out refuse to remove any gore from the title in the hope of getting a lower age certification, and possibly a few extra sales as a result

We’re never going to create a gore-free Resident Evil title to try and get a lower rating as it’s a game about the horror experience and gore is part of that,” said Rhys Cash, Capcom UK’s research and planning manager. “We’re primarily about making great games and if it’s appropriate to the title we won’t shy away from making a 15+ or 18+ title.

As we’ve shown with Resident Evil 4 Wii and Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles there’s still a market for more mature titles even on these formats. There’s no reason why an appropriate adult title should be seen as something to be shied away from. What I do see publishers moving away from is titles whose only raison d’être is ‘adult themes’ and only goal is to shock,” Cash added.

Capcom recently commented on having a similar mindset in regards to the upcoming release of Bionic Commando Rearmed on PSN, XBLA, and PC.
