Resident Evil 2 getting a CERO Z version in Japan for those who’d like a little extra gore in their game

Capcom has announced that a version of its upcoming remake of Resident Evil 2 will be released with a CERO Z rating in Japan, titled Biohazard RE: 2 Z Version, alongside the standard version rated CERO D in the country. So if you like your games extra gory, you know which version to go with.

Resident Evil 2 will be released worldwide on January 25, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

In Japan, only the PS4 version of the game will be released physically, while Xbox One fans have to settle with a digital version.

The Japanese Collector’s Edition of the game will be similar to the one announced for the US during Comic-Con this year.
