As Fallout 3 is scheduled for release in Japan next month, developer Bethesda has decided to make some appropriate changes to the version.

For starters, the possible detonation of an unexplored nuclear bomb has been edited out, along with Mr. Burke, the non-playable character.

Bethesda also noted that one weapon title was changed because it was "inappropriate" and this is most likely the "Fat Man," - and appropriately so, as it was the code name for the atomic bomb that was detonated over Nagasaki, Japan, by the U.S. during WWII.

The irony is that despite Bethesda's best intentions to be culturally sensitive to a country and their history, online reactions from Japanese users, however, indicate complete irreverence and disappointment regarding the censorship.
