106445 050 216FEA77 United Arab Emirates bans Dead Rising 2

Joining the massive list of banned games in the region such as Mafia II, Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age: Origins, and Red Dead Redemption is Capcom’s recently out zombie gore-fest Dead Rising 2.

As usual, there is no official word from the UAE National Media Council, but according to an official at Pluto Games, the local distributor for Capcom, the game saw the banhammer due to “violence, gambling and nudity”, and oh, not to forget the ‘use of alcohol’ as mentioned in the ESRB ratings.

The official says that the distributor is trying to get the game unbanned but “looks unlikely”.
