This Busty Fighter's Giant Thighs Might be Too Much For American Eyes [Update]

The upcoming, and very lovely-looking Dragon's Crown, has two websites, one for Japan, one for the US. Both are almost identical in design except for one thing: character art.

On the Japanese site, you can see nice, big pieces of art for each of the game's playable characters. On the US site, though, two of them are missing. The first is Amazon (pictured above, left), a "fearless warrior". What's funny/strange about this little piece of censorship is that she's not particularly sexual. Sure, there's a bit of cleavage on show, but if her cleavage is the first thing you notice, well, you're a perv. Because her cleavage is the smallest thing in that image.

(Aside from her head.)

Also missing on the US site is an image of the Sorceress character (pictured right), who on the Japanese site is portrayed as a magic user with enormous norgs.

Sure, this is just character art, and not in-game models, but this is a Vanillaware game, a studio whose titles basically look like moving character art. If something is too risqué for a website, there's every chance it'll be too risqué for the game.

Since the US version of the game is still "rating pending", maybe Atlus just wants to get it down as low as possible so it can sell the game to as many people as possible. Even if that means those kids will be missing out on certain things.

We've emailed Atlus for comment, and will update if we hear back.

Update - Atlus tells us "the two character images were cropped on the website at the behest of the ESRB."
