With her twin sister Masa found in a water dead body, Julia has a sense of traumatic and loss, and in the situation where the match between the German army and the Allied forces intensifying, the truth of her sister’s death pursue.
About this work Wired Productions explained that it is a narrative adventure work for only adults and contains scenes that may feel uncomfortable by people. About the presence of such a sensitive depiction, it is said that in the game it will be warned in advance.
On that basis, the company was unfortunately the PS4 / PS5 version has to be adjusted to avoid playing several elements.

- Trailer that contains a scene that strips the skin of the body. Cautions of viewing.
“Martha Is Dead” has already acquired rating in the main region with PS4 / PS5 version, and PC / Xbox One / Xbox Series X | S version is released without restriction. From these circumstances, it seems that this expression regulation is a measure that has been judged by SIE, a PS4 / PS5 platform holder.
Actually, there is a similar example, for example, “Senran Kagura Burst Re: Newal” Overseas PS4 version is deleted “Skinship Mode” to enjoy the notes of girls. Leading to “Omegalavirin Z” overseas PS4 / PS VITA version, there is also a sources of sources that do not deal with the regulatory version. Both cases have revealed the seller when there was a “request from the platform holder”.
Since SIE is a call to coverage of magazine, “While respecting the creator’s ideas, it is very rare, but it has a policy that seems uncomfortable to enjoy the game” and comments. Even if the rating review has already been completed, in some cases, it was revealed that SIE themselves were added (related articles). “Martha Is Dead” may also have such a target.
The PS4 / PS5 version of this work can not be said at the moment what regulation is d1. However, this is also interesting if the atractive expression as described above is corrected. So far, looking back on the example in which reproduction restrictions have been performed only on the PlayStation platform, there are most cases where sexual expressions are targeted, including the “Senran Kagura Burst Re: Newal” mentioned earlier. That’s because
On the other hand, “Plus Plus Plus Plus!” Released in October last year! In “, the blood color of a certain bloody scene was partially talked if only the PS4 / PS5 version was changed from red to black. Development source Team Salvato suggests that development source Team Salvato is a result of the platform. If you ask for a request by SIE, you will feel that the width of the company’s “uncomfortable content” has spread.
Anyway, at the moment there is no guessing area. What scenes of “Martha Is Dead” have been changed in the PS4 / PS5 version to be verified by the user after the release.
