Gory horror game The Evil Within 2 (known as “Psycho Break 2” in Japan) has been massacred by censors in Japan, a turn of events demonstrating that Japanese attitudes to the wholesomeness of ultraviolence still lag their betters in the US and elsewhere, despite the game having been developed in Japan.

Some of the censorship involves grotesque depictions of viscera being blacked out and the camera panning away from the gore during death sequences, as well as the complete removal of nipples – all things that more modernized countries like the US allow in their titles.
