Square Enix Self-Censors Western Bravely Default

IGN Forum member, BangSilverGang has noticed that the European version of Bravely Default was tweaked/censored to make the outfits of a couple of characters less revealing.

The image above, provided by BangSilverGang, has the western characters on the left side and their original Japanese counterparts on the right.

Square Enix has also raised the age of one character, Edea from 15 years to 18 and altered some dialogue to tone down sexual innuendos.

While those changes can rightfully be seen as a form of self-censorship, it should be noted that Dead or Alive: Dimensions couldn't be released in parts of Europe because some of its risqué characters where underage.
