So perversion is okay, but not horror and blood, okay Japan.

Man, pouring one out for Japan. This is weak.

I always thought it was interesting when games were censored in Japan. Especially when some anime shows that aired on TV were pretty violent. Wild that this is still a thing in 2021.

Games that fail to comply with CERO Z are refused classification. Not necessarily banned, but it curtails commercial viability.
They'd have to take another route like releasing the game on PC as doujin soft.

I don’t understand the climate change Japan is on now, first they allowed this stuff like sex and things now, they are forced to censor themselves ?

This is not new. The west censors sex and Japan censors violence. Been this way for decades.

Yeah, WTF Japan? Thinking that decapitation and violent dismemberment are worse than... panties? Those perverts totally have it backwards.

I'm praying for them to see reason soon and join the US in becoming a country where Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball games get a higher age rating than the fighting games they are based on.

Don't they censor/blur sex in porn?

Natural conclusion, there's gonna be a sex scene in the game.

Even if they import the NA version, weren’t most Biohazard games in English besides the Japanese text? If I remember correctly when I was looking at Code Veronica back on DC. The import was English dub, but Japanese text. I guess if you could change the text to Japanese in game then they’d have the uncensored version.

is mad because DF didn't do a video on a video of a video of a video on PS5

Like I said, I take your word. I couldn't remember the Japanese DC version of RE2 being censored.
I’m pretty sure at least the game over screen was censored in that version... I mean there is a game over scene in every death but in Japanese version it goes to a black game over screen.

I would rather have this kind censorship unlike the woke western standards of ugly faces on their games. lmao.
It's like it is a crime for having pretty faces on their games.

I've only ever owned the Japanese version of RE 2 for the DC. I just never recalled it being censored. I remember hating how the Saturn version of RE was censored despite SEGA Europe telling Sega Saturn mag it wouldn't be or how the deceptions was taken out of the Pal version of Ninja Gaiden on the OG XBox
