Dungeon Travelers 2 Censored for Western Markets

Japan RPG Provides Less Fan Service in US and EU

The Japanese RPG Dungeon Travelers 2 offers some quite revealing scenes of drawn young women (the boss villains in dungeons) that are shown to the gamer after he beat them in the battle. The developing studio Atlus calls that a "fan service". And at least 4 of those will be censored for the US version (and thus most likely for EU territories, as well) in order to avoid the "Adults Only" rating in the US. The ESRB helped identifying the critical content.

The press release says:

Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library & the Monster Seal presented some challenges during the localization process — specifically, adapting some of the fan service content to western sensibilities. Localization by nature requires some changes to be made for content to be understood en masse, which is why ATLUS worked closely with developer AquaPlus to preserve the game’s themes and content to its fullest.

Dungeon Travelers 2 will be released in the US on August 18th, 2015.
