MadWorld Finally Coming to Japan

Black and white and red Wii title MadWorld was made by Japanese developers, but wasn't announced for The Land of the Rising Sun — until now.

The "blood-soaked" game was released outside Japan last March by SEGA, which has a publishing deal with the title's developer, Platinum Games. Due to its violent content, the game experienced controversy in the UK and Germany — the game has not been released in Germany. Nintendo has even caught heat for MadWorld by groups unhappy with this adult-skewed game.

MadWorld will be released this Winter in Japan. Interesting to note: The title will not be released by SEGA, but by publisher Spike.
