Funny ol world ain't it?
Mmm...except they censor the ever-loving hell out of their porn, blurring just about everything that might be mildly arousing.

So it seems Japan is 'phobic' about violence and sex. :p

Supposedly it's to appease the west after WW2.

It's just the genitals that are censored (and sometimes faces, but that's for different reasons). It's mostly a safeguard against a vaguely worded 1907 article against obscenity in the Japanese criminal code, one that rarely ever results in prosecution.

Outside of that, Japanese porn is no more prudish than its American equivalent. Arguably less, since mainstream Japanese AV with popular actresses generally includes a wider range of hardcore fetishes (and yes, that includes blackmail/rape fetish).

In the words of the wise Daryl Surat, "Japan is so messed up because they can't see the pink"

Wow, um that video was truly something. If only I could be a fly on the wall (who understood Japanese) and watch the look on horrified parent's faces when they realize what a horrible mistake they made from watching that hilariously misleading trailer.

Nintendo's main Japanese audience isn't just kids, you know? That's the country where Mario advertises Mercedes.

I dont get hoe Nintendo is catching shit for being marketed towards kids, when clearly first person shooters are marketed towards underage teenagers.

Wow. A DOOM trailer without violence practically borders on false advertising. I mean, they're not lying about the content, but they're also choosing not to show something that's going to be a huge part of the gaming experience.

If DOOM wasn't already a well-known franchise, I imagine there would be a lot of disappointed squeamish gamers.

Blackmail sounds like a very boring yet profitable fetish. Do they have a fetish on overseas accounting and fraud?

It's lucky Doom doesn't have any penises featured in the gameplay, or we would be seeing a far greater misrepresentation from wholesome Nintendo.

Not sure, but its possible it has popped up in one of the office lady fetish videos.
