「The cover art of the Western release of Atelier Lulua has bizarrely removed both Elmerulia Fryxell’s legs and a horse.
Fans of the Atelier series may be bemused to find that the Western cover art for Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland has removed a horse and Elmerulia Fryxell’s legs, no doubt in some attempt to protect the eyes of any children that might see the game on store shelves.
Unsurprisingly, the PlayStation 4 version of the game hides more of Elmerulia’s skin than the Switch version, perhaps cementing Nintendo’s new position as the edgier of the two Japanese gaming giants.」
God forbid you see some sexy LEGS and a horse! More mindless unnecessary censoring. Brought to you by Sony™ - Think of the children !!! Don't support Sony.

「I don’t get it… I truly don’t fucking get it !!! There are woman on the street that wear micro skirts and their thongs and buttocks showing clearly to all people on the street and you tell me that the legs of a character in the most innocent light hearted series deserve censoring ?! Who the FUCK are they appealing here ?!」
「This is why you don’t compromise when it comes to censorship because they’ll start censoring anything and everything out of the blue.」
