Capcom finally released the demo of Resident Evil 2, one of the most anticipated releases for the coming months. It took little time for players to discover important differences between the American and Japanese demo.
The community made several videos of comparison and it is clear that the Japanese demo has censorship. The American version has more explicit scenes, because not only shows blood, but also organ remnants and more blood.
The Japanese version does not stop being bloody, but it shows less mutilations and diminishes its impact visually to a certain extent. Capcom has not commented on this, so we do not know for sure if the changes will occur in the final Japanese version.
These kinds of differences are usually common in Western releases and those aimed at Japanese players. Despite this, the trend of companies is not always clear. Here is a small comparative sample:

You have to remember that something similar happened with the Japanese version of the Resident Evil 7. The players discovered some differences that attenuated the levels of violence and violence. So, most likely, the final version of the Resident Evil 2 be held with censorship on the Asian island.
If you have not yet tried the Resident Evil 2, we remember that is already available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It lasts 30 minutes and can only be played once.
