Zanki Zero: Last Beginning Western Changes and Additional Conten

Spike Chunsoft has detailed content additions and changes for the western release of Zanki Zero: Last Beginning, its “non-stop survival RPG” developed by Lancarse.
Content Additions
The following additions are included in the localized release:
  • Japanese Swimsuit DLC included in-game
  • Difficulty I: Lowered difficulty to allow players to focus on story and puzzle-solving (other difficulties have not been modified)
  • English voice-over option (dual audio, choose from English or original Japanese)
  • Overall game balance and UI improvements
Content Changes
To ensure a release for the west, content changes will also be included in the localized PlayStation 4 and Steam (PC) versions. To reduce content which could be interpreted as sexualization of characters depicted as minors, the following changes have been made:
  • PlayStation 4 Packaging art – In order to conform to public storefront display standards, images that can be interpreted as too sexually provocative must be modified.
  • Sachika Bedroom Scene CGIs – In the Japanese release, Sachika’s panties are visible. In the western release, Sachika is wearing pajama bottoms.
  • Sachika CGI in the Opening Scene – In the Japanese release, Sachika’s panties are visible. In the western release, the camera angle has been raised to not show Sachika’s panties.
  • Child Rinko Extend Machine CGI – In the Japanese release, Child Rinko covers her chest with her arms. In the western release, the position of her arms has been adjusted.
  • All “Child” bedtime event cutscenes removed.

Sony and PlayStation's censorship continues with Zanki Zero: Last Beginning having several features removed from the Western release. The official release seems to be implying that certain forces would have stopped Zanki Zero: Last Beginning from releasing in the West had these censorship changes not happened.

Zanki Zero: Last Beginning is out in Japan for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan, and will come out for PlayStation 4 and PC April 9th in North America and Europe.

I wonder who was behind these changes to stop the game from being published in the West? What an absolute mystery! :^)
