The new PS5 exclusive already got people talking when it was revealed by Shift Up in 2019, but it seems that the debates about the censorship of Stellar Blade continue to rage on social media. Apparently, the protagonist with advantageous attributes had a few extra inches of clothing in the final version of the game — which was reason enough for some buyers to be dissatisfied.

The Korean RPG was officially released last Friday (26) for PS5 and received good praise from both critics and the public. Even if you want to read the impressions of the Voxel, Click here!

Was Stellar Blade censored after release?

After a promise from Shift Up that the game would not be censored even in Japan, now that it has finally hit stores, some players are complaining that Eve may not be nude enough. They accuse the studio of having censored some aspects of the game with the arrival of the day one update — especially with regard to the protagonist’s costumes.

Original designs are now only visible if you have a physical version of Stellar Blade and install it on your PS5 without downloading the update, which also comes with the new game+. These cuts were not part of the version sent for analysis by specialized media — and the reason for the changes is still a mystery.

The main complaints are about a specific Eve costume in Stellar Blade, which shows the protagonist in a swimsuit. In the old version, it had a neckline, while in the current version the space was filled by a piece of clothing. Check out:
