Risen 2 box art changed to meet ESRB guidelines

Action PC News Adventure Playstation 3 Deep Silver Xbox 360

While the ESRB may be good as a way to alert parents about a video game’s content, they can also be a bit of a hassle as well. One may remember that back when Deep Silver first revealed the box art for Dead Island, the box art had to be adjusted as it featured a person hanging from a palm tree which clashed with their guidelines.

Now it seems Deep Silver has encountered the same issue as the company revealed to Game Informer that they have had to change the color splash on the back of the skull to meet their guidelines. As seen above the color backdrop has had to be changed to blue instead of red because it could “could possibly be interpreted as blood.” Stay classy ESRB…
