Sorry America, No BlazBlue Underboob For You

Sorry America, No BlazBlue Underboob For You

Fighting game BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend, the second revision of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, is already out in Japan. It’s coming to North America this Feb. But Continuum Shift Extend isn’t bringing the game’s Japanese box art with it.

BlazBlue character Mu-12 covers up for the game’s U.S. release, resulting in something slightly more…Victorian. The game itself should remain unchanged.

If you’re a BlazBlue fan, be happy to know that the game’s producer said his goal for 2012 was to make a third BlazBlue game.

  • That’s some pretty boring underboob, so I don’t think the US is missing out on anything here. The entire cover art is very average and too busy really.

  • I sometimes wonder if Bashcraft was the origin of the Forever Alone meme. His consistent postings about anything involving Japan and/or boobs makes him a strong contender for it. Or at least for the title of most pathetic guy on the planet.

    • You don’t remember all the posts he made about Japanese school girls, you know, the books he wrote? Or all the pictures of his child he used to post?

  • Also I though articles were checked/edited when moved to Kotaku Australia. Why do we have an article about American underboob!

  • If you guys don’t like the article, then dont read it. No-one’s holding a gun to your head. The article clearly stated what it was about before you clicked on it after all.

      • No, I don’t have a fetish actually. But I do find it interesting that the USA is so over the top about censoring anything remotely sexual.

        • Don’t lie. Everyone has a fetish. Mine is lingerie and latex combined with tough chick. Like Kate Beckinsale in the Underworld films.

        • Or…now bear with me, we could leave the spankbank stuff to sites dedicated to such. I like to get my jollies as much as the next guy but KotakuAU is not the place I go looking for it. Same way I don’t go to a catholic church to get my drink on. Some places may inadvertently offer something, but it doesn’t mean it’s the right place for such things.

          • I’m with Chazz, this doesn’t qualify as news.

            Bashcraft is in Japan… you know where the Vita is right about now. Post videos and impressions of Vita games. Show us something valuable.


          • So a gaming culture site (with the word OTAKU in the title, no less) is not the place for information regarding changes made on video game covers, under boob or otherwise?

            I enjoyed the article and the information is presented and would read another dozen just like it.

            Seems like you need to get off your high horse.

          • And a site like Gumtree should be about selling gum trees and nothing but right?

            Seems like you need to come up with a better counter…

    • That’s a badass cover! I didn’t like the EU covers for the previous games though. Censoring game covers isn’t new, I remember them doing the same for Hyperdimension Neptunia and it’s usually an arm covering the chest.

    • Who knows but would it hurt for a cover to go for looking awesome as opposed to OMG BOOBS? Does Japan really need another thing to add to the international impression of them being sex-starved losers?
