While Square Enix’s Sleeping Dogs title will be released in North America just fine, it seems that the Japanese version of the game is going to have a number of changes. First of all the game will be titled Sleeping Dogs Hong Kong Secret Police and it has been given a CERO Z rating, meaning that the title is for adults only.
The title will also have a number of event scenes cut, like a scene where a person’s organs are exposed, a scene involving sexual references and also the street race signal girl was removed. Interestingly enough, gamers will also be penalized for hurting civilians in the Japanese version of the game. No worries about the English version however, there will be no penalties instilled upon civilian damage.
