In Smash 4, the CERO censorship, (documented by Source Gaming at https://sourcegaming.info/2015/09/18/cero-and-palutenas-censorship/) was designed to limit the exposure of Palutena's skin on her right leg. The censorship raised the length of Palutena's stocking and lowered her skirt to completely cover her leg. However, in SSBU, it appears that this no longer is in effect, as Palutena's render now clearly shows her upper thigh of her right leg exposed.

I noticed this first when I saw the thumbnail image of the Thunder Cloud Temple [OG] and Destroyed Skyworld [Old Remix] from Crunchii Music Extentions (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xySHU38R26w&list=PLV9ZrDQVqbTVVlm73iVqprXLLR4c0l97v&index=60 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcdhFLadr3A&list=PLV9ZrDQVqbTVVlm73iVqprXLLR4c0l97v&index=61)

I thought this was interesting, since originally Sakurai had expressed his frustration toward the censorship, saying it was overreactive and unnecessary. Now it appears that Sakurai and the team were able to bring back her original render and still maintain an E 10+ rating.

She is supposed to be a goddess but she shows her *** and pole dances. Classy. I wonder if she will get moves that involve her undressing herself like Bayonetta has.

Hopefully they didn't cause any trouble for him this time, it's such a dumb idea that short shorts are too provocative for children. If anything, children would just find it funny to pause the screen and look up her skirt. To which they wouldn't have even found anything anyway...

if this was a joke: jokes are supposed to be funny

if it's not a joke: go work for CERO where showing 3 inches of thigh is considered "showing her ***"

It still looks censored to me. This is how Palutena was originally designed (well, post-NES Palutena, anyway):

This design carried over to Kid Icarus Uprising:

And here she is in Smash Wii U (prior to censoring in the JPN version):

In all cases, her dress slit goes all the way up to her hip, and that large red jewel. The censored version of SSB4 Palutena, and Smash Ultimate Palutena, have the upper part of her dress sewn together above her leg, like so:
