Dead Island ‘hanging’ logo censored in North America

The logo for Deep Silver’s upcoming zombie game Dead Island will be censored in North America.

The uncensored boxart logo, viewable above, shows a zombie hanging from a palm tree. The logo for North America has been censored to show a zombie underneath the tree (view here). However, Dead Island‘s in-game logo will remain unchanged.

As for European copies of the game, the boxart and in-game logos will remain unchanged, in all their hanging zombie glory.

Dead Island is currently pegged to debut worldwide in 2011. Are you ready?
