Can nudity be added to the game?

Yea... ok... keep this global only then. Alot of collabs will probably have seconds thoughts on releasing their stuff on PSO2 if this happens.

Could be a global specialty. Give people more of a reason to play global.

Oh maybe there could also be bonus side story scenes if you have nudity turned on like bath scenes with full nudity.

Nudity being exclusive to one version seems pretty bad tho, having it on all versions would seem like the best of both worlds.

Not sure about the nudity thing for bonus cutscenes, like those would be pointless if someone had the nudity options turned off. XD

Something that's still broken for the male body type.

I am painfully aware. I conveniently didn't delete the benchmark character creater yet and i use that to do it. Also...

@Anarchy-Marine said in Can nudity be added to the game?:

you'd see that in a bunch of places in game

...The people who are dressed in some bikinis must be using an "outfit" then. Again, i'm just wondering why even bother pretending there's a difference. Whoever decides these things at sega must have some neuroses.

@Anarchy-Marine said in Can nudity be added to the game?:

Yeah, but GTA5 to my knowledge doesn't have the option for a player to get their character naked

On the other hand, in saints row 3, you can get completely naked and run around smacking people to death with a dildo bat. Not really relevant, but it's good fun for a while.

Maybe some just include nudity if it is turned on then.

Great. Idea, Phantasy Star has already went beyond Rock bottom anyway. Let's have it go down in a naked blaze of glory!!

@HarmlessSyan I can't think of any collabs this might change the mind of. Can you give some examples?

@Weirdo basically any anime or game that doesn't wish to be officially associated with being adult themed. You're not going to be finding many anime wanting to be associated with being in a hentai category nor will you find games like Nier or FFXIV be associated with full nudity. Talking about things from a country that still have their porn censored, while creators often dance the line of partial nudity, they make sure no genitals are shown.

I see what you mean.

I really do think a nudity option would be a wonderful thing for this game to have. I also question what society has against nudity when it is natural and how it ever even got to the point as being seen as a bad thing in public.

Good question. Although I can guess a few answers.

Just a brief fyi Nudity does not equal to or mean Hentai, let alone nudity equal to porn; though having a very prominent essence in it. Hentai is a vastly different sub genre that has it own sub genres. Plenty of past collabs that already ventured to SEGA have long already crossed the fine line of nearly walking those grounds of that genre long before ever thinking of working with Sega. SAO the most recent collab, has already proven this with their creator and primary production company falling back on a single trope that has appeared in their manga and anime since the start, a mild form, but still a form of Josō-seme (dominance over another so to speak).

Most potential collabs probably dislike the idea of nudity, given the structure and aspect of PSO2 based on an already mentioned concept. Marketing and Money. Offering nudity will lower chances of creators and artists working together to express talent, skill and collective work from two into one area.

While it is a concept that many of us think of the possibility like how the OP thought, with fun little bits here and there, and others going the other of abuse of accessories and other bits to troll others - it is more along the lines of not Japanese Censorship and potential and past collaborators suddenly taking a puritiranical view, but more money and the lack there of if it was allowed between the two.

Sega and Collabs are first and foremost companies - despite how it is viewed of anything each of us throw; they are looking to make profit. Nudity doesn't cause them to turn away cause of laws, but more the lines of not worth the effort to express and show case designs and new art when majority will run around naked costing more versus returning back an equal to or greater profit.

So, is it fun to think of the potential possibilities, be it good or bad? Yes. Realistically would prove an unfortunate waste of time and money where Collabs offer nearly the same concepts to more unique and detailed designs of characters and make a profit in return which helps keep the game floating among the bloated games on the market already.

So in the end, nudity isn't hentai, past collabs have ventured a fine line of nearly crossing the hentai line without ever showing naughty skin and the nekked people running about will be most likely turned down cause of potential money made/lost.

I'm sure plenty of people wouldn't be naked at all times and I'm sure they could find some way to turn it into a profit. Besides the scratches have more than just outfits in them and those other things could be used while nude.
