Homefront’s a game about forces in the Korean peninsula waging war against America, bringing the latter country to its knees. The opening scene of the game, however, contains a video with North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-il, so to comply with certain rating board guidelines in Japan, he’s been removed.
Instead, the movie will say a “Northern Leader” of “A Certain Country to the North,” which has yet to be specified.
You’ll notice that the game’s based almost solely on North Korea’s iron fist ruler forging a massive army with the South to launch the attack, so excluding him will be interesting. I’m not sure what nation will stand in proxy, but rumor has it Canada might foot the bill.
Ah, good ole Canada, the folks are so innocent up there… Have they ever even been at war?
