Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC censored in US and EU due to overexposed posterior

Summer Scramble, the latest DLC released for Fire Emblem: Awakening, has been reportedly edited by Nintendo in North America and Europe due to it showing off the bottom-most part of Tharja’s buttocks.

Her derriere isn’t censored in Japan, obviously, because there are shots of it over on IGN and NeoGAF.

The edited version shows a curtain of sorts covering the offending behind.

Nothing else in the DLC was censored, apparently, and honestly, the censored version looks more suggestive to me. The uncensored image just shows a bit of butt-cheek. Oh well. Protect the children and all that.

Nintendo has yet to comment on the matter.
