So the spirits artwork from Smash Bros Ultimate is getting leaked, and one of the png discovered was that of Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. While she looks like this in her original game,

She looks like this in her Smash Ultimate artwork.

(Ignore the lightning) Probably changed to avoid rating issues? Thoughts?

Edit: Since the colors of the image got messed up somehow in the transition, user Dardan Sandiego took the time to edit it with adjusted colors, which is probably how it's gonna end up looking in-game.

The edit with adjusted colors (not exactly same as original) looks probably much closer to what they intended and nothing like the "jet black pantyhose" people are complaining about.


edit: To clarify, I took the Smash Ultimate rip and adjusted the black/white levels to resemble the original image. I do not have access to the game from what I understand, ripping the sprites somehow messes up the colors so this should be closer to what it looks like in the game, I hope.

Better I guess, but not by much. Overall just goes to show how ridiculous a design it is regardless of whether or not she's showing skin or not.

Censorship is stupid but this is whatever. I get why the boob window was changed for censorship reasons but why the tights? Are people offended by legs now

Probably because of the E rating. It actually looks good on her. Is Pyra also in-game? I wonder how she will looks like

While it is generally better, there are a few changes I'd personally make.
  • Make the leggings white to line up better with the rest of the design. Or maybe make them bicycle shorts altogether so you can retain more of the Greek armor thing going on with Mythra's overall design.
  • Remove the leg wrap on her right thigh altogether & make the gem thing into a belt.
Otherwise, I do like the changes made to Mythra's look, especially compared to what we had originally. While I would have preferred white leggings, black isn't a bad call considering that Mythra already has a fair bit of black in her design. In fact, She-Ra's design in general isn't far off from what I would personally do regarding editing Mythra's design.

Why are we calling this censorship instead of just a re-design? When characters get re-designed to show MORE skin or become more sexualized, are we calling it "reverse censorship"? (thinking emoji)

As I said before, the top part looks okay, but the leg edit is very lazy. Not like Xenoblade got the best treatment in this game to begin with, so whatever.

I don't expect a very nuanced thread.

Do we have a screenshot of Pyra's new design? Is she even a spirit?

Yeah that title seems a bit knee-jerkish
