The Japanese localization of Call of Duty: Black Ops will have several elements censored out in order to meet requirements established by the CERO rating board in Japan.
Specifically, all swastikas in the zombie mode will be replaced with the iron cross in the PC and dubbed home console versions. Scenes of extreme violence have been edited out.
Square Enix, the publisher for Call of Duty games in Japan, revealed that scenes of dismemberment as well as "expressions of brutality" in an interrogation scene were removed for all versions the Japanese release.
Call of Duty: Black Ops is out November 9 on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and even the Wii.
