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.

SleakerBut where have all the Ethics gone?08/21/2014 - 9:08am
Sleaker@EZK - one of the bigger things is that since Mojang has owned Bukkit for 2 years now, people contributing to the project have basically been doing work for them pro-bono. On top of never formalizing support. They hid the fact probably to prevent support08/21/2014 - 9:07am
SleakerIf you've played on a server with mods/plugins, you've almost for sure played on a Bukkit-based server.08/21/2014 - 8:56am
SleakerHere's Bukkit's explanation attempt at shutting down due to EULA changes: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/bukkit-its-time-to-say.305106/08/21/2014 - 8:55am
SleakerEZK - it's the largest server mod for MC, in actuality without it minecraft for sure would not have been as popular (#1 game now).08/21/2014 - 8:54am
SleakerTo the point that it seems they have completely lost what it means to be for-community, and having transparency. Along with dumping restrictive EULA's onto people.08/21/2014 - 8:53am
E. Zachary KnightWhat is Bukkit and why should I care?08/21/2014 - 8:53am
SleakerMinecraft community exploded again today. Apparently Mojang owns all of Bukkit, and never put out a statement saying as such 2 years ago when they acquired them. I have to say, their transition from indie has been rough.08/21/2014 - 8:52am
