Good. Hairstyle has always been ok. No one here likes the mid-riffs anyway.

So apparently, they both removed his hair braid and covered up his abs, fans requested the character stay the same as the Japanese version, and Inafune decided on a middle ground: braid is back, but abs stay covered.

I'm okay with this. Exposed abs on a shirt that fully covers everything else is a little bit... feminine. Maybe the character should have been made female instead, that way no major design change had to happen, just add chesticles to make the character a girl.

I don't want to see anyone's stomach. God invented shirts 100 years ago for a reason!

So why is the US version of this game getting censored? And who cares if we can see his belly? Is it really offensive somehow? Why the heck would they alter his design for the US version at all? At least I have a Japanese 3ds, so I know what version of the game I will be getting now. And I can't believe they were going to change his flipping hair. Still, WHY?!

IIRC, when they first discussed the character design for America, they were considering the target audience for the game (10-14 year old boys apparently), and made changes based on what they liked.

It's not offensive, it just looks dumb

Wow. Who knew such a minor aesthetic change could make such a difference?
