Atlus USA Comments on Edited Persona 5 Box Art -- Not for Censorship Reasons

June 7, 2016

Today fans rejoiced as the release date for the upcoming JRPG from Atlus, Persona 5, was revealed to be February 2017. However, some eagled-eyed fans noticed the difference in placement of mascot character Morgana, as seen below:

Basically her location was moved from behind protagonist Anne Takamaki to in front of her, which happens to cover her cleavage. Popular speculation was that it was done for censorship reasons but John Hardin, head of Atlus USA PR, stated otherwise on Twitter in response to an article written on the subject:

Regardless of your position, the important thing is that Western fans actual know when the title will grace our shelves and we can plan accordingly for that (glorious) day.
