Stellar Blade PS5 PlayStation

If you were concerned that the PS5-exclusive Stellar Blade, out 26th April on PS5, might run afoul of Sony's censors, fear not. Developer ShiftUp is advertising that the game will remain entirely uncensored in all regions, including Japan.

We'll be honest: this wasn't something we'd even considered could be a problem (or a prospective selling point), as protagonist Eve and her costumes, or lack thereof, have featured so prominently in the lead-up to the game's launch. Still, we're glad to see ShiftUp so excited its vision will soon be in the hands of millions (probably) of players.

In other Stellar Blade news, Yoko Taro reckons it's better than NieR: Automata, and we were glad to discover the game will remain respectful of your PS5 storage space. You can try out the demo now, which almost managed to double the daily active users of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth's own, pretty impressive stuff for a first-time console showing.

Will you be there for Stellar Blade on day one? Are you glad to see the game wasn't censored at the eleventh hour? Let us know in the comments section below.
