More Censorship Discovered in Western Release of Bravely Second
Guys, does this really matter?
03.03.16 - 11:15 PM

Censorship during localization has been around since the dawn of video games. In this day and age, the internet allows it to be brought to light before a game releases and many "fans" get up in arms and vow to boycott the game. One of the biggest new titles to be censored is Bravely Second: End Layer for 3DS. The big hoohaw here involves changes to many character costumes, making them slightly less revealing. This isn't the first time this has happened; Nintendo censored Bravely Default in the same way. Below you can watch a video that details some of the changes.

As for me, I have a hard time distinguishing the original designs from the censored ones. I wonder if character designer, Akihiko Yoshida, is as upset about these changes as some people are?

Bravely Second: End Layer is available for the 3DS in Europe and Australia and will be coming to North America on April 15th.
