Video games are released all over the world, but there are different customs and cultures video game publishers must consider with each new game release. Costumes changes, character bios and other controversial elements are often edited for release in the United States. The culture and style of gaming in Japan is very different and this reflects some of the drastic changes that are made.

Pokemon have gone through a number of changes over the years, but there are also human characters like Rui who have been censored over outfit concerns. Jynx is a Pokemon who was criticized for the blackface appearance so the whole skin color needed to be changed for the character. In Zelda, Skull Kid went through a big change which included his face being made from a whole different material. The game Xenoblade Chronicles X features an underage character in a pretty revealing outfit. The United States version of Animal Crossing completely changed two character genders because the males were deemed too feminine. Mother 2 features an extended segment where players enter a dream world and a naked boy travels around the level. Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is a great survival horror game that ended up being filled with inappropriate outfits for US publishers. Street Fighter introduced a tough female fighter by the name of Poison, but the backstory to the character led censors to replace her with some generic fighter named Billy.
