Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes censored in Japan, Kojima confirms

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes has been censored in Japan, following a decision by the nation's game rating board CERO.

It follows my opinion blog on whether or not Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is worth £30.

Director Hideo Kojima confirmed the move in this week's issue of Famitsu, and to reveal exactly what has been censored would be to spoil one of the game's most significant scenes. We'll spare you the upset, but rest-assured you'll know the scene when you see it.
