A game that lets you customize the size of your penis. That’s the kind of title that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be. This is great, but it’s something that can be seen as somewhat controversial. Especially for a country like Japan where this type of thing is often frowned upon. Of course you won’t be able to edit the size of your genitalia in the version of the game that’s going to be sold in Japan. CD Projekt RED confirmed that nudity is the main reason for the censorship as was reported by PC Gamer. However, that’s not all. Intestines and genital shaped objects are also a no-no.

Instead of staring at nude bodies, the Japanese version will have characters wear underwear. They had to do this in order to comply with the strict rules of the Japanese rating agency. Their CERO requirements are rather strict when it comes to these things. Lewd cutscenes have also been edited, billboards, and some graffiti have been edited or removed.

    To be honest, I prefer living in Japan (& raising my children here) than living anywhere else; and if games here being `censored` is what it takes to stay on good terms with the overall culture, then I am up for it. Too may crazies elsewhere.
    Anyway, you get used to games being censored here (a country that has an annual penis festival ffs).
    Ton of them censored the same in Australia also. Heck, even the UK had the movie `Clockwork Orange` banned for 30 years.

      I don’t know, censorship is never good and should never be allowed in any kind of media idk, at least in my opinion
