Bravely Second’s Western Release to Feature Censored Costumes

on February 29, 2016 1:48 PM

Censoring is especially prevalent on Nintendo’s platforms, with the latest example coming in the form of Nintendo 3DS exclusive Bravely Second: End Layer.

Censored Gaming has shared a new video comparing character models from the Japanese and localized versions of the game. The comparisons very clearly show that compared to the authentic version of the game, costumes of various female classes have been altered to make them generally less revealing for the localized versions. This is a sad practice indeed and a decision unlikely to go over well with the relatively niche audience that is/was excited for Bravely Second, but what do I know?

The less gratuitous version of Bravely Second launches in April in North America and is already available in Europe.
