Saints Row: The Third to be slightly censored in Japan

Seems Saints Row: The Third's whacky craziness is too much for Japan.

THQ's confirmed to Game Informer it'll censor part of the Volition open-world game due to CERO restrictions on decapitated body parts.

The publisher had to remove veins and physics fron the Penetrator in-game weapon. That's the Dildo bat for anyone who isn't in the know.

Saints Row: The Third and its fucked-up bonkers is unleashed to the world on Tuesday in the US and next Friday in the UK for PS3, 360 and PC.
