For the sake of my sanity, someone please come up with a rational explanation for this? I can understand some censorship in the past but this is a bit much.

Before I even read the explanation, I already figured it was because of the CERO and ESRB sizes. That was from my very brief stint in graphic design waaaay back in my early adulthood :)

I don't think it's censored, because there's nothing there to censor, I believe what the guy said, that's it's about making the artwork fit.

pompombrum955d ago

Thank you. I couldn't possibly believe anybody would go that far to censor.

hulk_bash1987955d ago

Yup no need to get riled up over nothing. This isnt censorship at all as explained by the Atlus PR manager. Move along.

You would know if you read the article. Why even come here and voice an opinion if you're only going to automatically assume ignorance. The title even leads you to think it might be something other than censorship, ffs.

Oh for God's sa... Is anyone seriously gonna b**** about stuff like this?

There's even an explanation within the article, as if they needed to explain why they made their game cover however they pleased.

Sounds like I'm overreacting? Yes, but that's because we'll eventually read ridiculous comments like "I'm not buying the American version because they censored that girl in the box cover"...

Everyone's sensitivities are turned on high these days that I believe many people will automatically assume its censorship without taking a breath first and thinking it through.

garrettbobbyferguson954d ago

People despise any sort of censorship, which has been happening a lot lately. Also the explanation is weak. If you look at the non american version, the face is still being covered by the rating.

The feminazis might have made a huge deal about the tiny bit of cleavege, saying how misogynic the game is. So the devs are probably just covering their bases.

Maybe they did that so the rating logo wouldnt cover morganas face? Of course they could just minimize it...hopefully the game itself isnt censored at all

Edit: Atlus tweeted saying what i just said

"Maybe they did that so the rating logo wouldnt cover morganas face?"

I was literally just about to make that comment. I'm speechless, really.

No, seriously. Some people just REALLY need to get a f***ing grip and stop being idiots...
