That's not true. They're like the only country in the world that censors the genitalia out of porn videos. Yet they still have a thriving porn industry... how?

There are specific historical reasons why that was the case for a long time (there are also specific laws regarding displaying pubic hair), I'm talking about the attitude of people towards nudity.

Japan is a very sex positive country which to me was actually shocking as they tend to be really reserved regarding public displays of affection. 

Doesn't matter what the reasons are, they're not good enough. And as long as Japan censors porn I'll consider them to be even more afraid of nudity and sex than Americans.

Darn, now I can't get my jollies looking at virtual stone breasts and coochies.

"afraid of nudity" sounds ridiculous, even the prudish culture in north America doesn't mean they are "afraid" of it... I would say the word would be more "ashamed" of sexuality. As an example, the main crime for a politician to commit in the US is a sex scandal. Bill Clinton was facing impeachment procedures due to a blowjob. While the Bush administration could blatantly lie about WMDs and invade several countries under false pretenses with no legal consequences.

In my opinion that beats any type of pixelated dicks on JAVs for sexual repression.

This isn’t even a SJW issue. It’s an American issue where seeing a tit or naked body causes public outrage, but we can glorify mass shooters and gore without a problem whatsoever

This doesn't even make sense. Naked bodies cause public outrage but mass shooters don't? Please think a little bit more before writing. 

Ubisoft is a French company, right? Don't know if the Ass Creed dev's are located in France though. I think they're located in Europe? I wouldn't be surprised if they were located in America though. Anyways, companies have shown in the past that if something isn't allowed in certain countries, they just censor it in a specific region. This is censored everywhere, right? 

Either way, it probably is mostly for North America. Other countries might play a part. But the U.S. definitely has a problem with topics of sex. Pretty funny considering how much sex appeal is in our modern culture. 

Edit: Forgot to mention that this isn't an "SJW" issue and automatically attributing it to that is kind of stupid. The biggest reason I think it's censored? The tour mode is only for educational purposes. It doesn't even feature violence. They probably felt that if they were going to do away with what made the game M rated for the sake of an interesting mode about learning, they might as well censor anything. Heh, you could actually argue that that makes censorship equal for once, and not just one sided against sexual content ... I'm making a very basic guess based on what I know of the mode. Also I realize what I just said might discredit the American thing, but I read up on it after.

Why has no one even mentioned that the game actually has topless characters roaming around in the world? Statues are censored but actual nude characters are allowed? I can't even wrap my head around this one. Check it out on Youtube or play the game. They are extremely common to find.

I had to complain. That statue had a bigger dick than I did. And the statues junk wasn't event that impressive. How can I run along being all bad ass when even a rock can show me off?

That's at least a reasoning I can understand.

However with a username like "bananaking" I somehow expected that you offered "more". Are the bananas so much smaller where you live?

Canada, actually. It is Ubisoft Montreal after all
