Censorship? Oh lord. Why do nobody who try and localize Asian games research their markets?
Let's refer to TERA, the latest censorship failure in the MMO world. They too were ridiculously worried about "American opinions about child characters". Well, you know what? After censoring the clothing, they released uncensored swimsuits, showing more skin and being more sexy than the armors, and there were no complaints. What is on the horizon? playboy bunny suits, and they will also be uncensored since EME gave up on wasting resources on something nobody is bothered by.
What am I getting at? Well, I'm stating, with proof behind my back, that censorship is a waste and you gain nothing from it. In fact censorship causes rifts in the communities and you end up with groups like Tera. Where half the group whines about people who like Elins, and the other group whines about the group who always insult their race choice.
Do nothing, and the game will be played as a game. Censor the girls, and everyone playing them will be called "The pervs picking the class that is a little girl and should be shot on sight". Because by censoring them, you indirectly agreed that they are wrong and not appropriate, and stupid people will run on this and bully players.
Let's be honest here. People will pick this title for the sexiness. People who play games for sexiness are rarely the kind to go around and preach about how to act properly.
Let me pick another censorship example. Sword Girls. They censored a card because of whining. The effect was a counter whine from people who disagreed. The result was that they promised to not edit future cards unless really needed, and since then they've released cards twice as naked and young, without a single complaint.
So again, what am I stating?
Two "MMOs" released 2012 were censored at release, and then noticed the backlash and complaints from fans of the game and stopped any future censorship because it was hurting business. Meanwhile all the "complainers" disappeared and were not around a month or two later.
I.e. it is nothing but Brilliant to censor a game to attempt to appeal to people who didn't already like the game.
I'm certain I'm too late with this information, but the company can enjoy re-reading this in 2 months when they realize I was 100% correct and the censorship was a waste.
And if anyone was wondering, I found the Sentinel outfit to look terrible and was not planning on playing it anyway. I just can't stand seeing people go "America don't like this so we are changing it".... Your country does not sign up to the game, individuals do. You may as well say "We must add Football to the game, or America won't play it".
Regardless of if you want it or not, people have encountered Queen's Blade, the anime, and from there tracked down this game. They like Asian culture, and do not consider themselves soccer moms who worry about nipples or ages.
