Blood Is Removed From Red Steel 2

Blood Is Removed From Red Steel 2

The creative director behind Red Steel 2, Jason Vandenberghe, has defended the decision to remove blood from the game and to tone down the levels of violence. It is a decision that has perplexed fans of the original game and is another decision from Ubisoft that is likely to be viewed as controversial.

Speaking to Computer And Video Games Jason said:

“It was quite controversial, all through Ubisoft people had strong opinions. The team like mature games so they were like ‘why not? Why can’t we do this?’ My opinion was that I wanted to tell a story about a goodie. I wanted to play a game where I’m doing good, I’m cleaning up the world one bad guy at a time. That’s my fantasy, that’s my hero fantasy.

When I picked up a sword it was never about I’m going to murder people by chopping them into pieces – that’s just not my fantasy. I’ve played that game – I’ve shot the heads off civilians in Grand Theft Auto so again I’m not judging. But I wanted this to feel like those guys deserve it and I’m doing a good thing.

I’m not going to say it’s a bad marketing decision. It’s a good marketing decision. You wouldn’t believe me anyway if I said that wasn’t part of the f***ing decision.”
