Censorship that used to be the domain of the religious conservatives now rears its ugly head on the other side of the aisle. It's weird.

No its not weird. I'm pretty liberal and I have been a fan of this game before the fake twitter and YouTube losers latched on to this game to promote their so called 'opposing' political group thought. There was one or two people that had something negative to say but EVERYONE else loved this. There is no agenda against this game. EVERYONE loves it. The new zeitgeist is to pretend that there is a mob after you when there is no such thing. There never was. EVERYONE loves it. IGN is a ballsack and no one with a brain should take any thing they say as real. Welcome to 2024 politics where everything gets inducted into this fake war that needs to be reported on 24/7 to maintain the veneer of legitimacy.

I tire of everyone trying to drag me into this fake war. Get a life and get off of Twitter.

I still don't understand how censorship, which is nothing else than a goddam RESTRICTION, can even exist. Some people may not care but many others like me will say "screw this, keep your altered game!". Nobody will ever say "oh great, this game is censored, I want to buy it then!"... Restrictions are always bad, especially when gore and blood are totally okay while a little skirt is considered shocking... Meanwhile, girls are pratically naked on twitch every day and people love that. Hopefully, those 90yo conservative weirdos (who probably don't even play video games) will finally wake up and stop that insulting policy that is so freaking bad for the industry. Make ESBR ratings matter again!!!

What, exactly, was going to be censored? Are there open P shots in this game or something?

My educated guess would be cleavage and stuff like that which hardly seems like it needs to be censored when there are T and M ratings available. Some regions may have wanted the violence censored.
There's no nudity. The ESRB rating is M for "blood and gore, [strong] language, suggestive themes, and violence,"

I don't remember Bayonetta being so controversial? Maybe I'm wrong and it was censored in some countries.

I did a google and a fascinating website appeared which logs this stuff (https://censorship.fandom.com/wiki/Bayonetta_2), seems 1 wasn't at all but 2 was banned 4 years after it's release for a completely different reason in Saudi Arabia that isn't because the main character doesn't wear much.

Thanks for the info. That Bayo 2 stuff is.... interesting to say the least.

Polygon did have a Bayonetta 3 attack article ... but that was because of the male characters and "the patriarchy" apparently taking over the game.
