Thanks to the folks at GameXplain, its now confirmed that Lyn’s two outfits being edited are indeed real, but they also found out something else that was altered for Xenoblade Chronicles X‘s localization. The game’s character creator has also been censored a bit, with the removal of the breast slider that was in the original Japanese version as seen in the video below.
The original slider was very lackluster to say the least with differences only being marginal at best compared to other games that featured a create a character system. However, the fact they did remove it is still a shame and Nintendo is gonna have to face facts that removing options in an already limited creator is going to scare some consumers away. My guess is that they probably didn’t want people to make a Lyn-like body type and then use the outfits they altered for her. Speculation yes, but that’s all we can do unfortunately.
Xenoblade Chronicles X is a Nintendo Wii U exclusive and will be launched in North America and Europe on December 4th of this year.
