On the official Twitter account for the global version of the video game for smartphones Blue Archive, a letter of apology was issued to players because the promise not to change the matter was not kept. The long writing states:
«Dear Senseis. (Referring to the players) Hi, I'm the director of the program at Blue Archive, YongHa Kim. First, I would like to deeply apologize for the review of Aris' s stage production in the global version. Prior to publication, we have not been able to fully reflect the various regional scenarios that may occur in future updates. As a result, I was unable to keep my word in the last interview, much to the disappointment of the Senseis who confirmed certain changes through this update. In addition, I would like to share with you the official position on future “censorship”».
«I would like to point out to you that the difference in cases between regions is not due to the policy of development studios and publishers in favor of certain regions. In this case, we had no choice but to respond to external requests. You had to choose between options such as removing all the material, modifying the diagrams or changing the production, and we felt that changing the production was the best option, as it would minimize the damage to the material . We are fully aware of the importance of preserving the original content, but we believe it was more important to offer a consistent game service».
«We, the development studio, share the same desire of all Senseis: to be able to offer the same service in all regions with original content. However, it is also true that since each region has different service circumstances, there may be unavoidable requests for modification. In the future, we will update these modifications to preserve the original resolution as much as possible. In addition, we will include some changes in future update notifications. Once again, I would like to sincerely apologize for all the senses that I enjoy in the Blue Archive. I hope everyone has a good end to the year, and we will take steps to ensure that we do not disappoint you in future updates.».
The state of censorship was reported in a video game scene starring the character Alice (ア リ ス), called “Aris“Because of the production, she seems half-naked and lying. The censorship is implicit in light of the character's appearance as an apparent minor, however the problem is that the same director apologizing today in an interview before the global launch confirmed that there would be no change. It is for this reason that players are making a review-bombing to the video game, which had a score of 1.6 points at the date of writing this article (out of a total of 5.0) on the Google play store (the minimum is not 0.0, but 1.0).
It is worth mentioning that the Japanese version of the video game is available in the catalog QooApp in this link.
Summary of the Blue Archive
The city academy is divided into their own districts and is considered largely independent. The General Student Council acts as the governing body to manage the academies as a whole. However, the group's ability to control has been halted by the disappearance of the president of the president of the General Student Council. Endless problems have begun to escalate across Kivotos in the absence of presidential leadership.
To avoid disaster, the General Council of Students enlists the help of the Federal Research Club, also known as Schale. In fact, Schale is the newest club in town and the last to be approved before the departure of the president. To complete their task, Schale has a guide from Sensei to help them solve the adventures around Kivotos.
