Glory of Heracles: Don’t look at my bum, you bum looker

Submitted by on March 3, 2010 – 11:00 pm8 Comments

I noticed something funny this evening in a promotional email I got from Nintendo supporting their recently released RPG for Nintendo DS, Glory of Heracles. They’ve obscured the ass! The original artwork that was circulating showed a surprising amount of one of the female characters’ posterior, but most everywhere I look now, that butt is covered. I love stuff like this!

Of course, these images are both simply composites of character art, and this could be interpreted as simply another layout for another page size with a different ratio of width to height. You can’t deny that the positioning of that boot is a little too strategic. Check below for a side-by-side.

    I saw the more “Exposed” add on the back of nintendo power. I was kinda suprised because it IS Nintendo.

    Hah! “Bum looker” reminds me of Mike Myers.

    Can you post the full image of the original artwork? From the side by side images, it's obvious that the entire image was completely rearranged.

    Yep, as I mentioned in the article, the two images are composites, and are laid out differently.

    I know you did–that wasn't meant to sound accusatory. I was just wondering if you could post the original artwork, so we could see the entire context.

    I'm sorry I came across that way. Let me link you to the same art at IGN.

    Thanks! Wow, it's a totally different image. It's amazing how marketing changes during localization.

    Yeah, it just seemed strange to see something that trivial blown out of proportion by Nintendo. BTW, nice to have you as a visitor. Hope you won't be a stranger.
