Censorship[]

International Censorship[]

  • The scene that shows a statue of Mary holding the baby Jesus was modified for the International release. In the International release Jesus was digitally removed, and Mary's arms are at her side.
  • Any references to Yuan's crossdressing and his relationship with Dou Niu were modified for the International release (which made him a female character, with a female voice actor in the English-language dub).
  • In the International release Najimu Hassan's headdress (a keffiyeh) was changed to a headband and his Arabic-sounding name was changed to the Chinese-sounding name Haoyi Ping.
  • In the International release the tape recording scene was removed.
  • In the International release the screen fading out to red when Ryo gets killed with Yuan's chainsaw (QTE fail scenes) was changed to fade out to white.
  • In the International release the baseball fan darts player Chengyou Wen's shirt that had "DEATHBALL 666" and a skull Baseball on it was changed to say "Baseball" and have a regular baseball on it.

Where to find it uncensored[]

The Japanese release is completely uncensored, and there is a mod that removes most of the censorship but it has Spanish text. A fully uncensored mod with English text titled "Yuan's Revenge" was planned but never released and there has been no word from the modder about it's status.

In the 2018 re-release, Yuan will be a crossdressing male when Japanese voices are selected, but everything else is still censored.
