I'm not familiar with these Naruto Ultimate games, but it looks like a remastered trilogy of sorts came to PS4 in 2017 called 'Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy', so I'll link the article under that entry unless anyone has a better idea.


I've put it under the 'Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4' entry instead, since according to a tweet from Censored Gaming, there were scenes in that game which had the violence toned down compared to the manga/anime. Seems likely that game was the one most affected.

So, Mary Skelter 2 skipped western PS4 release, while releasing on Switch, and now Finale will come to west both to Switch and PS4?

that will be for the Chinese market.

 

Xi Jinping hates Winnie the Pooh, because of a joke that he looks like him.

 

That sounds like a joke, I know, but it’s not.

 

 

I expect the Gollum game when it shows to be banned in Turkey for the same reason. Erdoğan actually got a guy arrested for saying he looked like him 🤣

Too bad ResetEra wasn't damaged by the very recent OVH datacenter fires.

I've seen a few theories for this, but without an official statement from miHoYo, it's hard to know the true reason. Either way, I've added it to the list.

Should add The Last of Us 2 since it's censored in Japan.


It's already on the list for that reason and others.

I don't know if you want to include this one but it has been confirmed the PS4 version of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, will be based on the censored PS3 version and not the uncensored Vita port: https://boundingintocomics.com/2021/03/21/team-ninja-confirms-ninja-gaiden-master-collection-will-feature-censored-version-of-ninja-gaiden-sigma-2/

Vita port was still technically censored as well, just not as much.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut was refused classification in Australia, effectively banning the sale of the console versions in the country.

Added it to the list. Between this and the likelihood of Sigma 2's platinum being unobtainable due to the removal of the online feature, my excitement for this collection is pretty much gone at this point. Just seems like barely any effort has been made on Team Ninja's part. It wouldn't have killed them to add a toggle for blood like Sigma 2 on Vita had.

Welp guess I'm not buying that collection then.

I remember Outlast 2 was almost banned in Australia, until the governor stepped in and said, "Leave gamers alone", but the scene explicated showed the main character was sexually assaulted, I believe it was changed to be less graphic...

 

There is also a fairly disturbing incident during this as well, there were voice files in the game suggesting the Father Loutermiltch and Jessica (who was a 12-year-old girl) engaged in sexual acts as well, and from the context given in the game, it gets worse...

Thanks for the information and links! I vaguely recall there was some controversy with the Australia ratings board, but I didn't know that ended up getting all versions of the game censored. I wasn't aware of those cut audio files either. I guess they self-censored to avoid the shitstorm that would have been likely to cause.

I didn't know Okino was censored like that in the English subtitles for 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. I wonder what his original meanings would have read as.

The Diablo 2 remake has been censored but the devs have included a graphics toggle so you can switch to the old graphics and the uncensored version of the Amazon character (NSFW Link): https://www.sankakucomplex.com/2021/04/11/diablo-ii-remaster-censors-amazons-butt-sorceress-underboob/


Added it to the list. As a side note, I love that we learned about the Amazon's toned down design thanks to Hololive's Kiara pointing it out on her stream. A true woman of culture. 😛

Kingdom Hearts 3 (PS4) - Blurred out Winnie The Pooh in Chinese version, replaced voice actor via patch in Japanese version following scandal

Source: Game Rant | Niche Gamer

Region: China, JP

Uncensored Alternative: NA, EU, JP (pre-patch)

 

This should be altered to remove the Pooh part. The game was never released officially in China. Players would have to purchase the Asian region version from Hong Kong for any Chinese language support and Pooh is not censored in any version of the game.
The site the censored screenshots came from were altered before posting to avoid any backlash. He's not actually a white blob in the game.
