Explaining merihari to Ninja Theory took time, as did Capcom's expectations of DmC's violence level. The initial concepts for the game were even more dark and demonic than the final product - something Eshiro blanched at, because if the Japanese CERO ratings board awarded DmC a Z (an "18+ only" rating usually applied to games with dismemberment or other extreme violence), the game would have difficulty finding distribution in many Japanese shops.

"The original concept art had some pretty grotesque depictions," Eshiro recalled. "As the producer, I figured there was no way we could have this get a Z rating, so I had them make things a level or two milder. But it was like, I'd turn my eyes away for a bit, and then there'd be heads flying off bodies, guts all over the place. I don't know how many times I said 'No, this'll make them give it a Z!'"

I can easily imagine this in my head, it is quite comical.

"No Ninja Theory! Bad! Too violent!.

Good... HEY I SAID TOO VIOLENT! Bad Ninja Theory!

Ninja Theory sit! Stay! Good boy.

NINJA THEORY!"

^reminds me of NT's insistence of using UE and real time for the movie idea they were pitching to Hollywood (with Hollywood telling them to get out).
