According to trusted source Marisa Honkai on Twitter, the 5.7 version of the game will see Kiana’s White Comet battlesuit as well as Himeko’s Scarlet Fusion receive slight alterations.
In the case of Kiana’s battlesuit, her cleavage has been reduced, while Himeko’s sports a new piece on her chest covering the area up as well.
It’s not currently known if the same update will be rolled out to SEA and Global versions of the game, but it’s an overall minor change to the characters outfits.
Honkai’s Censorship Woes
Unlike Genshin Impact whose censored outfits came in the form of partial redesigns, Honkai has had a much more subtle battle with censorship.
The game had previously removed its controversial touch feature, where you could grope the playable characters on the bridge for affection points.
Interestingly enough while the Chinese government is usually the suspect whenever Genshin or Honkai Impact 3rd is censored, it’s not always the case- Chinese fans reacted very negatively to a previous anniversary event, which saw many of the Honkai girls dressed in bunny girl outfits.
