Dead Rising is an action adventure game that was developed by Capcom Production Studios 1. The video game was released by Capcom for the Xbox 360 in North America on August 8, 2006. The game was banned in Germany and was also censored in Japan due to CERO's guidelines. A remastered version, which was released for PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One on September 16, 2016, has also been censored.



Why Dead Rising still has regulation issues in Germany

German censorship[]

Japanese censorship[]

European censorship[]
