A rumor (via NintendoLife) has been going around revolving around Super Smash Bros. and the previously leaked Tharja support trophy.
I’m sure that any of you who’ve got the game has noticed – the creepy, black magic-loving bombshell is no where to be found. The rumor however, is more about the reason as to why she is no longer involved.
The rumor itself is this – Tharja was removed to avoid bringing the rating up a step. There is, unfortunately, precedence for this, as Tharja was previously censored in Fire Emblem: Awakening in the DLC when a scantily-clad shot of her was involved. This could mean that they took similar steps this time to avoid it altogether – by taking her out entirely.
Of course, this is only a rumor, and it’s a tough one to believe. Her outfit is no worse than many of the other girls’ outfits, so it’s hard to imagine that her alone would cause a problem. However, given what little information we have to go on, this is likely the only theory as to why she was removed at this point.
