Not surprised by the rating. More violent games from this gen have been getting Z ratings in Japan when they are M rated here. Some are really odd like Infamous 2 is Z rated, T rated here in the US and other regions.
This game isn't to different from GTA either and every single GTA games has been rated Z.

Every nation has one form of censorship or another. So, not really news.
