Rare's decision comes after a recent spate of high school shootings in the US, the most terrifying of which, Columbine, shocked the world. Law suits against many game companies n including id Software, the maker of Doom and Quake n have been filed following the incident, and giving children the option to put the faces of whoever they please into a console shoot-eem-up was obviously a risk Rare was not prepared to take.
Perfect Dark will be one of the hottest N64 games of the year. The project is now complete and in testing, with the US version scheduled to ship on April 10. We'll have confirmation of the European date soon.
In the meantime, head over to Rare's site for screens and info.
