Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is a lot less sexy in the West than in Japan
What if hunting ghosts in lingerie is my hobby though?
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water made its release in Japan nearly a month ago and it included a number of sexy outfits that the West won't be seeing. Apparently, Nintendo of America deemed a number of outfits were to risque for the M rated game.
Not only were some lingerie outfits removed, but a new video has shown that c
It seems as though Europe, who rated the game as a PEGI 18, has also been censored. There's a scene in the game where the protagonist, Miu Hinasaki, wears a skimpy outfit during a photoshoot - all while talking about her job.

Instead of lingerie, the Western audience will be receiving a samus and Zelda costume.
Of course, none of the outfits enhanced the story's plot and were included in the Japanese version for fanservice reasons, but that doesn't really make it ok to remove it from the Western version of the game. Games have ratings for a reason.
