Dungeon Travelers 2 Will Be Censored in the West
Less naughty bits for us.

Hot off the localisation reveal, Atlus have announced they have censored 4 images for the western release of Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library & the Monster Seal. This was done in an effort to meet the ESRB's M-rating requirement so the game is within an "acceptable" range. You can read their full release on the censorship below.

Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library & the Monster Seal presented some challenges during the localization process — specifically, adapting some of the fan service content to western sensibilities. Localization by nature requires some changes to be made for content to be understood en masse, which is why Atlus worked closely with developer Aquaplus to preserve the game's themes and content to its fullest.

In order to comply with restrictions set forth by rating boards, Atlus made concessions on just four in-game images. On these images, some minor edits were made (and approved by the developer) to adjust the overt graphics to within acceptable ranges for the game's M-rating.

Atlus is committed to being one of the leading publishers of niche JRPGs, and are very aware of what impact censorship can have on import titles; we are confident that the changes we made to the images in Dungeon Travelers 2 were the least invasive possible to still be eligible for a release in the west.

Thematically, the game remains as true as possible to the original Japanese version, including the preservation of the original Japanese audio.

Dungeon Travelers 2 will be available in North America this summer, and in Europe this fall on PlayStation Vita.
