The art for Sino Alice has been changed on both the Google Play Store and the App Store in Japan. The original key art, which can still be seen on Square Enix’s website, featured low cut outfits. The new art, however, does not.

While the in-game art does not appear to be effected, you can see in the top image how it was changed for both the App Store and the Google Play Store.

Below is a full comparison of the old key art and the new key art. As you can see, the change isn’t only for one outfit, but multiple ones.

On a closely related note: we can’t really win, can we? If they’ve got boobs out, people just moan about sexy art and how it’s evil; if they used to and now don’t, people moan about censorship and how it’s evil. When do we get to the part where we all accept that everyone has their own creative licence and just accept their works? That doesn’t mean like them, just ignore it if you don’t like it. The old sticks and stones kind of stuff. Kids know it, why have “adults” forgotten?
