Looks like Japan won’t be getting a floppy rigid Penatrator as the rest of the world. A THQ representative told Game Informer that, due to stricter guidelines, the publisher had to remove the veins and physics from the in-game Penetrator weapon for its release in Japan. The Penetrator is a melee weapon comprised of a three-foot long purple phallus attached to the handle of a baseball bat. In Japan the “Depiction of genital parts” are prohibited, so the bat was in violation of that censorship law. Leave it to Japan to censor out big veiny phallus bats while at the same time selling used girls underwear out of vending machines.
Saints Row: The Third releases on November 15 in North America and Europe and November 17 in Japan.
