Until Dawn death scene censored in Japan

Saw that coming.

PlayStation 4 horror title Until Dawn has found itself censored in Japan.


It's hardly be a spoiler to say that the game's cabin in the woods story features plenty of death.

Although, as a 'choose your own adventure'-style game who dies depends on the choices you make.

It may be that your playthrough does not include the following scene at all, but read no further if you're worried about spoilers.

The scene in question, posted online by Censored Gaming, involves a circular saw, and what happens when the soft young body of Josh finds itself in its path.

The original version of the scene - which you will see in the UK - shows what happens in rather gruesome detail. In Japan, the action cuts abruptly to black - but you can still hear what happens, which is strangely sort of worse.

Only click below if you have guts (unlike poor Josh):
