For its Japanese release, Far Cry 3 is getting a series of edits that will result in a slightly different experience for the country's gamers. According to Ubisoft (via website 4Gamer), here's what's different in the Japanese language version.
toned down the violence. amped up the sex. winner
Japanese culture in a nutshell. Not saying that's a bad thing. ;)
Where does it say they amped up the sex?
hehe I don't normally read articles from Kotaku. Just made an assumption(stereotyping jap culture) that that would be the case. ;p
On top of the 109 billion stimulus pack omg.
More schoolgirls, I'd imagine. In fact, they're releasing it as Disgaea 5.
Just realized this is Kotaku... I don't have it in me to give them a hit.
...let me get this straight. A country that routinely releases games portraying sexualized minors has seen fit to edit a relatively tame sex scene? And "wounds" have been removed from the game, but they are responsible for some of the most brutally violent animation and games from anywhere in the world? Yes, all that makes complete sense.
Weird. Japan made quite a few violent games, and they're one of if not the most perverted folks on the planet.
That's kind of funny, don't Japanese shows generally show more fanservice and blood than American shows?
Fanservice, yes. Blood, not really. I find many Japanese shows quite tame compared to American shows. Not that that's a bad thing. But unless you're watching adult anime or indie tv shows, most Japanese shows tend to to avoid showing violence, sex or even two characters kissing. I know they have certain censorship laws in Japan that prevent them from showing certain things, but it's interesting just how tame the majority of their tv really is considering how "adult" and "perverted" their reputation is.
