Mugen Souls Z Censored for Western Release

No More Sexy Bathing Time

At the same moment that NIS America announces a localized version of the PS3 JRPG Mugen Souls Z for western territories, they also declare that slight censorship has been applied to this version. At least that's honest and not always common in today's times.

In a press release, the developing studio was rather vague and described alterations of certain aspects that are somewhat delicate and were therefore applied to the American and European releases of the game.

The official message board has much more information regarding the situation. Here, we get to know that at least the mini game that revolves around bathing the characters and being rewarded for that with pictures has been taken out. In said mini game, the player can soap and rub female group members and caress them, as well. Of course, this is accompanied visually and acustically (e.g. characters blushing and/or moaning). It should be noted that there's no nudity involved, even though the players can certainly create the illusion by choosing a skin-toned color of the bathing suits. When the task is finished, a CGI picture of the character is the bonus that the player gets. Typical fanservice which developer Compile Heart is known for by both fans and watchdogs.

However, the really tricky part is that some of the characters are obviously looking very young and probably underage. "Lolis" is one term for that.

Mugen Souls, the predecessor, had to endure several alterations for its international version, as well. NIS America stated in a longer press release that they censored the game for these markets because they feared the ESRB's "AO" rating and that they also wanted to distance themselves from sexual acts that involve childlike characters.
