The USK in Germany have decided they will not be rating PQube’s upcoming game Gal Gun 2. This has resulted in the game automatically being banned within the country.
When Rice Digital reached out to PQube, the company released the following comment…
Today we have received word that Gal*Gun 2 has been refused classification in Germany.
We’ll always try to get games through classification regardless of the possibility of it being denied, as we feel that everyone should have the right and the access to play the games they want to play. It is our opinion that disliking the content in a piece of entertainment or art, and voicing that dislike, is totally fine and even encouraged, but denying that work the right to exist in a market based on personal opinions and prejudices, is something we strongly disagree with.
Unfortunately our appeal against this decision has been unsuccessful. Given that Gal*Gun: Double Peace did receive classification in Germany, we’re doubly disappointed that we cannot bring the highly-anticipated title to our fans in Germany. However, we will have to accept and respect the decision of the USK.
Gal Gun 2 releases in Spring 2018 on Switch and Playstation 4.
