Xenoblade Chronicles X is launching in just a few weeks in North America and Europe, but not without a few differences from the Japanese version. As with many games that are localized for different regions, certain aspects are either altered or removed altogether to appease the audience and cultures of the region the game is localized for. GameXplain has found that certain characters can’t wear certain costumes, and a “bust slider” found in the JP version has been completely removed.

GameXplain shows that there are only two specific differences between the two versions. The first difference prevents Lynn, a 13 year old girl, from wearing the bikini costume, which is the only outfit not allowed between all the other character costumes.

The other noticeable difference comes in the form of the removal of the “bust slider.” The slider is relevant to the deep character creation aspect of the game, and although you can still adjust width and height of the characters, you will not be able to alter their breast sizes. In this version all female characters will have the same breast size.

What do you think about this? Do you think it’s unnecessary to censor certain aspects of the game by removing them? Or do you agree and think that they are unnecessary in the first place, so their removal is irrelevant? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to check out the video above to see the changes. You can check out
Xenoblade Chronicles X for yourself when it launches exclusively for Wii U on December 4.
