Kakuto Chojin yanked in US/Japan

Down to "religious references" apparently

Microsoft has pulled Beat 'Em Up Kakuto Chojin from stores in North America and Japan. According to reports, Microsoft Japan has been saying it's down to "religious references" in the game, which may have caused offence.

Yesterday we learnt that Microsoft would not release Kakuto Chojin in Europe in order to concentrate on the reportedly much better Tao Feng: Fist Of The Lotus. Review scores have been in the 60s and 70s, which isn't really so bad, leading us to wonder if between the religious excuse and the alleged quality of the game, MS Europe has just decided it isn't worth the hassle.
