South Korean side-scrolling beat-em-up MOBA Hyper Universe (which is being published by Nexon America in the west) is apparently getting the China treatment for its western version as the character art for the game’s many scantily clad maidens are being altered to be less “offensive”, a decision the company insists is not because of SJWs, even though it probably is.
Players began accumulating comparison images of the western version and the sexier Korean version, revealing that not only was the character art altered but the breast physics as well – the run cycle for one of the game’s female characters in the Korean version:
The American version, which has significantly less jiggle:

A Nexon community administrator addressed the changes, which were apparently done due to complaints at a PAX event about the females being “too sexy” and “unsuitable for all ages”:
“In alpha, there was a pretty hot debate in a forum thread (which ended up being our longest forum thread for alpha) about how the females are presented in the game, 5 forum pages later a few people agreed that a compromise between super busty/skimpy and covering up might be for the best.
This is what we are attempting to do.
We want to keep the appeal of the female characters (and males for that matter!) while not offending anyone. We want to keep the artist’s integrity in-check, but make the game inviting to not only play, but watch as well.”
Naturally, many have immediately pointed to SJWs being the likely culprit of this change, but the same community administrator had claimed that it was done for a different reason:
“The feedback we have gotten are from people who HAVE played the game and WANT to play, but due to things like having young children present or other reasons, don’t feel comfortable playing the game at home.”
Blaming the problem on cucked men who can’t even enjoy their own red-blooded tastes in the privacy of their own home is of course likely a much safer option than tackling a legion of feminists and their army of gaming media shills.

Thankfully, modders have already devised a way to revert the changes imposed on Hyper Universe, which can be done by any and all now.
