Sleeping Dogs is censored... at least in Japan

Various adjustments necessary for the rating

The open world action game Sleeping Dogs had to be censored in order to receive the infamous CERO Z rating in Japan (comparable to the American "Adults Only" rating)

As Siliconera reports, exposed intestines of a character were retouched in a cutscene while in another one, alternate camera angles were used in order to reduce the lewdness. In some missions, penalties were introduced if the player attacks civilians. At last, in the street racing missions, even persons signalizing the start of the race were removed (presumably because they could be run over, as well).

If Sleeping Dogs will face a similar fate in the rest of the world, as well, remains to be seen since there's no official statement by Square-Enix as of yet. However, an Austrian video game retailer claims to have heard that there's gonna be a heavily censored version...

The game will be released in North America on August 14th, 2012, in Europe on August 17th, 2012 and in Japan on September 27th, 2012.
