Censorship is Western games has become a hot topic. We are seeing it in MMO too, Blade and Soul for example.
Finally, a major Japanese developer has spoken out, as to why they are forced to can Western releases, on their Facebook page.
Team Ninja (チームニンジャ, Tecmo) from Japan started talking to gamers on their Facebook page.
It has nothing to do with rating agencies, but with public pressure.
Basically, the Western debates on "women in gaming", by female advocacy groups, have put pressure on them. It means they can no longer release some games in the West.
They are fearful of the possible backlash from those groups, and they are focusing on asian releases.https://archive.is/KmUZcTECMO JAPAN: NEWS:RESPONSES:
