Well, it's a bat, basically. The "Penetrator," the notorious four-foot long dickbat in Saints Row: The Third, runs afoul of Japanese laws prohibiting the display of genitalia, so Volition just turned the thing into a garden-variety aluminum baseball bat. Why not a four-foot long tentacle bat?

Still no word on the whereabouts of the missing real-world dildo bats THQ sent to the Netherlands and France as promotional swag.

CERO has some of the biggest assholes I've ever seen in an industry(?)-run ratings board. They have turned the tables of gaming censorship. Back in the day, most games from Japan had to be censored for other regions. Now Japan's rating service has become draconian enough to indirectly enforce censorship on the games in their country. Their CERO Z rating can be seen as a death seal for many mature games over there thanks to most of their adult populace being boring salarymen who have no time for fun, and anyone under 18 is completely banned from purchase(if I am correct).
