Rule of Rose Canned By 505 Games

Rule of Rose was supposed to be released today but you will not find it on any stores shelves as 505 Games will no longer publish the controversial horror title in the UK. The announcement comes as the game faced much criticism in the media and beyond with even the Mayor of Rome, Walter Veltroni voicing his disapproval of the title. Even more nasty words came from European justice and security commissioner Franco Frattini blasting the games’ as he labelled it “obscene cruelty and brutality.

Following discussions with our retail and publishing partners, 505 Games has taken the decision not to publish Rule of Rose in the UK at this time,” said the publisher.
