's Japanese version received a day one patch today censoring the dark elf NPC Kizmel and her breasts during a bathing scene with Kirito, according to Japanese website Yukarigame.

Covered up in the form of a bikini, the protagonist himself had his towel replaced with a pair of swimming trunks. Before and after screenshots of the scene can be found below (NSFW):

In the Progressive light novel series, Kizmel and Kirito bathe together in both volume 2 and volume 3. The first time, Kizmel is naked and Kirito wears a towel, with an illustration that probably served as inspiration for the scene in the game:

The reasons for this censorship are unknown, but it could be a move to comply with the game’s B CERO rating, which is suitable for ages 12+.

This change will most likely carry over to the western version of the game that will release for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on November 8.
