The game’s arrival to Pax East revealed the grim fate of all its “risque” content, with changes ranging from minor (such as mere age alterations) to drastic (forcing the game’s skimpier outfits to cover more sinful skin):
A former statement released by Nintendo regarding the game’s localization has indirectly offered the reasoning behind the censorship, though it constitutes little more than a generic blanket statement:
“Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE was localized by Atlus in a way that is consistent with the localization work they do on games they publish. It was a priority to ensure the game feels familiar and appeals to long-time Atlus fans. Any changes made to the in-game content were due to varying requirements and regulations in the many different territories Nintendo distributes its products.”

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE (for those somehow still interested) will dance its way to the west on June 24th for the Wii U.
