Idea Factory International has announced they’ve censored the western box art for Neptunia ReVerse.
The box art has been “adjusted for retail”, noticeably covering up the exposed breasts of the various female protagonists of the game. The original Japanese box art is on the reversible cover, however.
Here’s a comparison between the western box art (left) and the original Japanese box art (right):
Here’s a rundown on the game, via Idea Factory International:
Gamindustri – A distant world comprised of four nations, each under the divine protection of a Goddess.
Planeptune: Land of Purple Progress, ruled by Neptune Lastation: Land of Black Regality, ruled by Noire
Lowee: Land of White Serenity, ruled by Blanc
Leanbox: Land of Green Pastures, ruled by Vert
Locked in the Console War, the four Goddesses vie for domination of the planet until Neptune is cast down and stripped of her power.
Now Neptune must fight to restore her place, but could a being known as Arfoire threaten the very world the Goddesses have sworn to protect?
