Japanese Far Cry 3 edits out sex and violence

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:

 

• Wounded corpses have been cut (er, censored)

• A sex scene as well as a scene depicting an open wound have been edited

• Killing three civilians in succession results in a game over penalty

 

As Western players can already attest, the original version of Far Cry 3 warns players about killing innocent civilians and already has a game-ending penalty for doing so. However, some Western players reported that killing two or three innocent resulted in a penalty (and a meme), while others said it was higher at around five or more. For Japan, Ubisoft makes it very clear that the number is three.Besides these changes, the Japanese language version is the same as the Western release, Ubisoft states.With video games, Japan has traditionally had stricter regulations on bystander-related violence as well as how corpses or body parts are shown. In the past, this has resulted in edits in Western games like the Grand Theft Auto titles and the Call of Duty games (here, here, and here).
