Sean Cunningham, art director for God of War III, has said that he and the team are worried that Kratos’ newest adventure may be banned in Australia due to its ultra violent content.

“There is (concern),” he told Screen Play. “We try to push the boundaries a little bit. (But) we’ve had meetings and discussions and internally we all have a good gauge on what’s ‘too far’.

“You throw something past [content rating boards] and they might say ‘Absolutely not! You could not do that!’ and we’re all like: ‘Aww, c’mon, that was a great idea!’ There have been a couple of those.

“Also visually, everyone’s really excited. The disembowelment of the centaur, ripping Helios’s head off, the reaction from the floor has been amazing. Everybody in the studio is very happy.”

Game’s out in 2010, which should give the devs plenty of time to bow down to the Australian ratings board should they choose.
