Saints Row Penetrator Altered In Japan

Saints Row: The Third's release in Japan got a little less amusing.

A THQ representative told Game Informer that, due to stricter guidelines, the publisher had to remove the veins and physics from the in-game Penetrator weapon for its release in Japan. The Penetrator is a melee weapon comprised of a three-foot long purple phallus attached to the handle of a baseball bat. "Depiction of genital parts" are prohibited, and Japan considered the bat to be in violation of that.

[Update: A THQ spokesperson clarified to say that physics for the bat are still intact. Just the physical features were removed.]

Saints Row: The Third releases on November 15 in North America and Europe and November 17 in Japan.
