Blue Archive is a RPG video game that was developed by Nexon Games. It was first released in Japan by Yostar Japan on February 4, 2021. After the mobile game was released by Nexon for international markets on November 8, 2021, it was soon discovered that the game was censored with various images having been toned down and part of the story being censored.[1] In November 2022, it was announced that the international Android and iOS releases would be split into an uncensored "adult" version and a censored "teen" version, with access to be determined by age authentication of the respective app stores.[2]
