Chinese people used Pooh to make fun of their president, so the government decided to ban Pooh altogether .

As some have said, it's possibly due to the "E 10+" rating they received from the ESRB. Guess those working at the ESRB supposedly believed Mythra's skirt was a bit too close for their comfort. Heck, Nintendo had to remove the Tharja trophy from Smash 3DS possibly due to the "E 10+" rating, as well as simmer down Bayonetta, an M-rated character who is known for her sexualization, to even get included as DLC. Sure, Smash Bros. has been rated "T for Teen" before, but maybe Nintendo and Sakurai's team decided on holding back to get a "E 10+" rating. Who knows, maybe the ESRB is a bit inconsistent, but I will lean towards that before going at Nintendo, especially since the rating does matter to them, regardless of what we think of the ESRB ratings.

The character is now ruined. This seriously hurts Nintendo's chances of me buying the game. Censorship should only be used on the weak and I am not weak. Make a de-censorship patch Nintendo!

It's okay. This is YOUR game and the game is designed for a younger audience. One problem would be to censor another's game and that is also for +18. Can you see the difference?

Pretty dumb considering Smash will be on the same console as Xenoblade, where Mythra's NOT censored.. But I suppose it makes sense if they need to do so to keep that E/E10 rating.

Gotta keep that game rated E+10 ... then there's Bayonetta lurking around in a sexy outfit :)

Anywoo, I actually like her new black leggings,lol.

It's because Smash is primarily a children's game and Xenoblade 2 has an older audience target.
