When there's no more room left in Hell, Dead Rising still won't be allowed in Germany. Destructoid reports that Xbox One launch title Dead Rising 3 has been refused classification by the German entertainment software self-regulation body, much like the other games in the zombie-killing series.
"While Microsoft is disappointed with this decision, we respect the views of the review panel and have withdrawn Dead Rising 3 from Germany’s Xbox One launch line-up," Microsoft said in a statement to Destructoid. "Dead Rising 3 will still be available in all other launch markets on 22 November 2013. Beyond that, we have no further comment.”
The panel found both Dead Rising 1 and 2 to be too violent for classification, in effect banning their sale within Germany. It seems the same has occurred with Dead Rising 3 which, to be fair, is at least as violent as its dismemberment-happy predecessors.
Players can still import the game, but it's one less launch title for German Xbox One early adopters.
