Japanese censors demanded panty checks for female SSB characters during development

Gaming News


When Super Smash Bros. Creator, Masahiro Sakurai, showcased Smash Ultimate’s latest guest fighter, Terry Bogard, he brought up the fact that one of Fatal Fury’s most popular characters, Mai Shiranui, would not be making an appearance in the game at all and alluded to her sexual nature as the main reason.

It turns out that Sakurai and his team had a bit of a back and forth with CERO during the development of Super Smash Bros. for Wii-U circa 2012 as the rating organization actually asked the Smash team to turn female characters upside down for panty shot angles.
