Japan to receive censored Fallout 3

Poor old Fallout 3, it’s not had a very good run of things on the censorship front. First, there was the whole debacle in Australia regarding morphine and self medication. Then the game was pulled at the last minute from release in India, supposedly because the game also features mutated cows, which are of course a sacred symbol in India. Now, if that weren’t enough censorship for one title, Bethesda has announced that the game will undergo further editing before it is let loose on the Japanese market. The cuts supposedly relate to the level of blood in the title along with references to atomic weaponry, which is understandable given 20th century history.
