Red Dead Redemption 2 Censorship Detailed In Comparison Video
Red Dead Redemption 2 has been out for a couple weeks at this point, and fans have been digging into the story laid out before them by Rockstar Games. However, not everyone is having the exact same experience, as players around the world will encounter censorship based on where they are located.
A recent video to be released on YouTube by Censored Gaming dives into the comparison between the Japanese and standards versions of the title. Red Dead Redemption 2 features plenty of violence, gore, some nudity, and much more that might be a bit much for some audiences. That said, the video shows a side-by-side comparison highlighting a few key differences between the two versions. Check it out for yourself below:
One of the major differences has to do with dismemberment in the game. While the standard version allows for such things, limbs will stay on screen after detaching from their previous owner. The Japanese version, however, contains dismemberment, but the limbs explode and disappear from the screen.
Another censorship encountered in the Japanese version is in regards to nudity. Video games rated by the rating system in Japan are not allowed to show nudity, which is why the brothel scene won’t be showing any naked people. The castration scene even shows the gentleman’s pants still on him after they’ve been pulled down. Needless to say, while the story may remain the same, the experience will likely differ.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
