Video game censorship is arguably more of a thing nowadays than ever before. Even PlayStation's creator Sony has come under fire in recent times for censoring certain titles to varying degrees.
Common targets of censorship appear to be Japanese-made games featuring mature content and over-sexualised themes. It’s even got to the point where some games are now completely skipping a western release. Naturally, this has fans of certain types of video game experiences on edge, about what games will and won’t be localised, or if they’ll be censored upon localisation.
In the case of Arc System Work’s upcoming fighting game Kill la Kill: IF, based on the popular anime starring a school girl named Ryuko Matoi, there’s no need to worry. In a reply to a fan on Twitter, the game’s western publisher PQube confirmed the game would "be the same across all regions" and platforms. It also said how if anything changed, fans would be notified:
The publisher confirmed this release would include dual audio as well, so you can listen to it in Japanese or English. Kill la Kill: IF arrives in both physical and digital form on the Switch later this year.
