Time to breathe a sigh of relief - the black, white and red Wii game passes BBFC regulations with flying colours.
After courting controversy last year among 'concerned' readers of the Daily Mail, the BBFC have confirmed that the ultra-violent MadWorld will pass as an 18+ rated title with no cutting or censorship required.
A spokesperson for the UK classification company even released a short statement regarding the matter:
"We clearly had no problems with MadWorld. If we had, we wouldn't have classified it; it's as simple as that."
So there we have it. With the game's impending release, there's no doubt about more tabloid-branded controversy yet to come, but gamers can feel safe that a genuinely fine looking Wii game will indeed be releasing here with no real hiccups.
