Deus Ex: Human Revolution Slightly Censored for Japan

August 8, 2011 -

If you happen to live in Japan, you may or may not notice (you will now because we're telling you about it right here, so "you're welcomed") that the Japanese retail version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution has undergone two edits to protect audiences from "body organs and sexual objects."

The first edit is an omission of a cutscene in the game that shows a character with their "organs exposed." The second edit involves an unknown "sexual object” removed from one of the game's maps. Deus Ex: Human Revolution will arrive in Japan with a CERO Z rating, the equivalent to an "adults only" rating here and elsewhere.

Both of these cuts were made because display of this kind of material is strictly prohibited in Japan.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution releases September 8 in Japan, roughly two weeks after its launch North American launch.

"Both of these cuts were made because display of this kind of material is strictly prohibited in Japan."

And now you know why Japanese porn = Boring. Porn is not meant to be censored.

Re: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Slightly Censored for Japan

Boring? Really? Personally I've found it to be incredibly imaginative, from using tentacles to go around the issue of displaying a penis to simply bashing open nearly every possible taboo to compensate for the censoring. But let's not get facts in our debate, it would be boring...

You do realize that they made video with real person and fake tentacles, right? Not one, many. And videos with people outside. And plenty others. By the way. Hentai -> pervert. Hentai porn is a thing. Hentai anime or hentai manga are others. Being an hentai is also something.

Re: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Slightly Censored for Japan

Hentai= Anime porn :P(least outside anime circles and japan)

I forgot, who better than an ?American? to say to the Japanese how their language work.

Re: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Slightly Censored for Japan

you're thinking of American porn. it all follows the same template of closeups and techniques. since those depictions are censored in Japan, they've turned to more creative outlets, many of them surprisingly on the comedic side. for the sake of keeping things work-safe I'll end the discussion here.

Andrew EisenI love RPGs but I didn't much care for Tales of Symphonia. I didn't bother with its sequel.04/23/2014 - 11:21am
InfophileIt had great RPGs because MS wanted to use them to break into Japan. (Which had the side-effect of screwing NA PS3 owners out of Tales of Vesperia. No, I'm not bitter, why do you ask?)04/23/2014 - 10:52am
RedMageI'm still disappointed the 360 never broke into Japan either. It had a bevy of great RPGs in the late 2000s.04/23/2014 - 9:48am

Papa MidnightWith GTA5 (to date) failing to even provide indication of a PC release, I'm realising that this might be the first GTA game that I have not played (outside of Chinatown Wars) since the series inception.04/19/2014 - 8:14am

MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
