Dead Rising 3 Will Not Be Released in Germany

Bad news for Germans looking forward to getting their zombie chopping fix, as it was revealed today that the game will not be released in Germany. According to German site Gameswelt, the Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons has expressed concern with Dead Rising 3 (likely stemming from its excessive gore), denying the game a rating.

This makes it difficult Microsoft to localize the game, who will now skip localizing the game altogether. No other details are known at this time.

Just be thankful that we don’t have a “Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons,” although we suppose it would be shut down anyways.
