    Well, i talking about their games that have slight nudity and stuff, and they censor almost all of those. The vast majority of Nintendo’s games are about being happy and relaxed and rainbows and butterflies, you don’t see much gore or nudity, otherwise they’d do it a lot more often tbh.

  • Joey

    Wii U homebrew is in development, but it’s not rready for full-on hacking as far as I know.

  • alex9234

    No. It was Square who censored those games. Nintendo did not develop Bravely Default and Second. Square did. So guess who censored the game?

    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=197196163&postcount=689%29 – Plus, the European Credits in Bravely Second showed off that SE was pretty much behind the localization. The only Nintendo employees were 5 people listed under Localization Quality Specialists for NOE and Nintendo of Korea’s localization team.

    • Superior Amygdala

      Square developed Bravely Default, a developer is someone who MAKES the game, and then they published it themselves in Japan, where the game was released in its original, but then, Nintendo decided to publish it themselves for NA and EU where they censored it for THOSE regions. Do you understand the situation now? I tried to explain it as simply as i could for you to understand and stop fighting reality.

      • alex9234

        Once again, you are repeating yourself. Click on the link in my previous comment and start refuting. It showed that SE was behind the localization of those games, and therefore THEY censored the game.

        • Superior Amygdala

          Localizing the content of a game =/= publishing it.

  • Bluesabus

    God forbid you try to point out that you agree with them on some aspects while also trying to provide some perspective. You get labeled a homophobic paedophile, for some strange reason.

  • Joey

    True, but there are others whom want the games as faithful to the source material as possible.

    Both groups should be catered for when localising the game. Nintendo aren’t doing a good job at catering to the purists, which is only worsened by the fact their consoles are region locked.

  • Aiddon

    They are. Japan actually modifies stuff frequently for Western titles, mostly violence.

    • Budgiecat

      and full frontal nudity

  • iamDTS

    First how do you know Sony/MS games aren’t censored in some way? We get it first anyway, so you wouldn’t know.

    • Superior Amygdala

      That’s a very failed logic because 1) Then they weren’t part of the final product in the first place and we never supposed to release in that state, and 2) you’re making hypothetical claims that make no sense and have nothing backing them up “Oh yeah?? Well what if Sony and MS secretly censor games because i said so??” Sigh.
      Nintendo will publish/develop a game with slight nudity/gore for one region, then censor it for another. It’s ridiculous.

      • iamDTS

        Again you don’t think PS/XB games are censored for the Japanese? But of course you wouldn’t know lol. Don’t be a hypocrite, western games are also censored for the Japanese.

        Also how do you know they are not censoring games for us? You don’t, it’s a 2 sided coin here.

        • Superior Amygdala

          And……? That has nothing to do with Sony or Microsoft censoring anything themselves or Nintendo’s ridiculous censorship practices which is what my original comment was about.

  • kthanxyousuck

    They are, people just don’t dig around on all of them as thoroughly as they do Nintendo. Going as far as to compare pictures in the art books.

  • iamDTS

    LOL

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Nope, just a guy who woke up less than 15 mins ago lol. Thnx mate.

    • Bluesabus

      Oh lol. No worries, I’ve been there. Also have had it where I’m falling asleep and I type gibberish. It’s fun reading what you type when you wake up later, haha.

    • Wolf Star

      Sorry about that :/ lol I woke up an hour ago :P

  • Joey

    The only reason why the uproar is as big as it is is because of the initial misreporting of it when the game released in Japan last year in Western media. You should know how large swathes of the gaming media are towards an authoritarian progressive agenda, at the expense of much of the audience including the Japanese.

    I agree that a lot of censorship, particularly cosmetic is nonsensical. The only censorship that should occur is legal regulations, and even then, it’s still bad as they are essentially social constructions that go against the agendas of the countries they are in. Like Germany being somehow afraid to allow swatstikas in games released in Germany, even though it’s allowed in other media forms.

    • Bluesabus

      Oh I know, and as I’m learning in this chat, that scene was very badly misreported. I agree with you, for the most part. Censorship, especially cosmetic changes, are almost always ridiculous (e.g. I don’t know if this is the issue with Bravely Second, but I remember Bravely Default had the costumes changed on the heroes to cover up more, which is stupid since, if I recall correctly, the heroes are stated to be over 18). The place I disagree is when censorship affects hot button topics in the country they’re being localized. I keep bringing up Lin’s costume change because I feel it’s an adequate argument to bring up: the public would’ve taken issue with a 13-year old girl dressed in what many believed to be very revealing clothing, and yet so many who argue against censorship seem to be totally okay with it, citing “artistic freedom”. It just seems…odd, that others who argue against censorship can’t even justify that change within themselves.

  • Superior Amygdala

    Clearly someone here doesn’t know the difference between ‘Default’ and ‘Second’. Reread my comment.

  • Wolf Star

    http://youtu.be/tHkhJ1LvtkM
    I know that but this video already got approved by ESRB last year lol

    • NintendoPSXTheSecond

      It merely says ANTICIPATED, which still falls into the “We haven’t decided yet because the game isn’t done yet”
      So it’s still RP. Technically.

  • Joey

    Alternatively, don’t release the games at all there and let those wirthin the countries where there would be issues purchase and play the game illegally at their own risk. It applies to any form of controversal content. That’s what Idea Factory and Sony did to Moe Chronicle and look how well that has sold.

  • Superior Amygdala

    I got a 3DS for Pokemon, SMT, Mario 3D Land, Virtue’s Last Reward, REvelations, Persona Q and a few others, and a Wii U for Smash, which is a pretty dead game now (online wise), so I’ll probably sell my Wii U within the next few months anyway.

  • alex9234

    Gamers are truly against censorship!

    https://pietriots.com/2016/03/26/gamers-are-truly-against-censorship/

    We should continue supporting them everyone!

    • Wolf Star

      Stop.. Stop.. This forum gonna be closed now.

      • Joey

        I have a feeling it will be.

        • Wolf Star

          I’m feeling that right now :/

  • Aiddon

    Correct, because the government did not intervene.

    • Lordof930u4

      You don’t know what censorship is.

  • Dandylion

    Question Time !!! this limited edition, Is it the only way to get it Physical in Europe (Just Like Project Zero 5) ???

    • Joey

      I don’t think so. Hopefully not. PZ5 should never have been pushed as a digital download to begin with, rather a regular release like this one.

      • Dandylion

        I REALLLLYYYYY hope you are right !!!

  • Lordof930u4

    We are talking America and Europe here.

    • Joey

      The countries he is referring to are in the PAL territory though.

      • Lordof930u4

        PAL is a tv standard.
        PAL =/= America and Europe
        You don’t release games for PAL, NTSC or whatever, you release for COUNTRIES.

        • Joey

          PAL in gaming includes EU, Middle East, Africa (the Sharia law area), Oceania, India and Russia.

          • Lordof930u4

            and?

            • Joey

              Any potential censorship such as the coverup of clothing could have been done with these countries in mind due to the attitudes against woemn haveing revealing clothing. This could happen whether in both NA and EU regions or just in EU. It’s more likely to be both, considering Nintendo’s track record.

              • Lordof930u4

                I don’t think you understand what I said.
                PAL is an adopted tv standard. Just because a game is released for PAL doesn’t mean all PAL countries will have it.
                Games and every other product are released to COUNTRIES, not to standards. That’s like saying every left-hand car made by ford is released simultaneously in UK and Japan because both are left-hand traffic standard. No, because Japan doesn’t buy ford, they wont bother with the COUNTRY.

                • Budgiecat

                  Ford dropped out of Japan only this year
                  http://www.autoblog.com/2016/01/27/ford-japan-indonesia-pullout-report

                  “Ford was one of the first foreign automakers to set up shop in Japan. In 1925, the company established a manufacturing facility in the country, building Model T and A vehicles. In 1940, production ended due to political tensions between Japan and the U.S. Ford wouldn’t return to Japan until 1974 and in time would form a partnership with Mazda.”

                  • Budgiecat

                    because I found it interesting :3

  • Sasuke Uchiha –ZERO–

    I still don’t even know what this game really is.

  • SirDoucheOfTheSunCovenant

    I would totally pre order this if i didn’t hate the soundtrack of this game

  • Oh so basically you just wanted translation.
    Well let me tell you. Localization isn’t just translation.

    Deal with it.

    • adhesive

      Localization is trying to accurately translate tone and themes from one culture to another. Just because you don’t want your game being gutted by self righteous zealots doesn’t mean that you want a dull literal translation.

  • -boob slider big deal
    – crying over a petting game that take too much time big deal
    the current marriage only option is better.
    Bringing other characters wife or husband or child into your room petting them in front of your wife or husband sounds right.
    – changes of costume big deal I can’t see their legs this game is bad now
    – As for Tokyo Mirage Sessions. It was even censored once in Japan by yall logic.

    As for Fatal Frame situation is funny people wanted the game no matter what they want to play it but now they don’t because some sexy costume.

    • Superior Amygdala

      Tldr

    • landlock

      I think the digital only, region locking was a bigger issue for most people.

  • What Japanese games do they published or have published in the last 3 years? Don’t mention third party exclusives that they didn’t pay for.

    • Superior Amygdala

      What are you talking about?

      • they can’t censor western games if the western games is western.

        • Superior Amygdala

          Ok…

  • Not all is lost. Nobody cared about this game until the word censorship spawned.

  • The Jokester

    Kinda lacking for a special edition 6 songs? That’s not even a full soundtrack!!! Can you even call that an art book? What’s the dlc that’s included?? Seriously why do they always release this stuff trying to convince people to cough up the extra dough, when they don’t even give all the details on the items in it? (number of art book pages what the dlc content is etc.) Ehhh don’t matter this will sell out in like 5 seconds because HURP A DURP NINTENDO DUR!!! :P

  • Budgiecat

    you just wanna lick tits

    • Jiyoon Kim

      That’s the only reason that is worth getting this game.

      • Budgiecat

        not a fair trade to endure all that Glee-like musical cringe :p

  • Firion Hope

    yeah I’d like this but if thats how they’re going to play it I think Ill stick to cemu or grab a modded wii u and import a copy instead

  • alex9234

    You see, that’s what worries me about you. Because that’s the same thing that BLACKB0ND would say before turning around and saying that “everything Nintendo has done is shit.”

    • Superior Amygdala

      I didn’t say everything Nintendo does is shit, i love my 3DS. I was talking about their censorship habits

  • Firion Hope

    iirc the leak said the hot springs dlc would get removed aswell. And thats just what we know of so far

  • Budgiecat

    Evil Within and Alien Isolation arent old

  • new_tradition

    I’d imagine the Canadian price will be way up there, so I’ll pass and stick to my discounted standard pre-order :/

  • Asma Asma

    It will look nice next to my Xenoblade X’s special edition, the packages are very similar.

  • would get it if the release of SO5 wasn’t so close to it. oh well

  • Bluesabus

    True. Most things under Nintendo don’t even come close to some of the stuff XSEED or Atlus will localize (I’m looking at you, Dungeon Travelers 2), which makes a lot of the changes they make seem ridiculous by comparison. That’s why my guess is they do it for the sake of their “family friendly” image.

  • Blesmi

    “LOL XD YOU’LL NEVER TOUCH A WOMAN/ARE YOU 12??”

    Yep, it never fails, someone will always use that shit “argument.” Because a normal adult man can’t like things such as breasts in his video games right? Because once you turn 18 you suddenly don’t care about tits anymore, because that’s the mature thing right? It’s totally impossible for someone to have wanted an uncut version of the game that had content removed for no other reason than selfcensorship through fear right?

    Oh and XCX is a JRPG. Just like the souls games. Just like any RPG made in japan.

  • ayanami-chan

    Not feeling this game

  • Chestnut Bowl

    Is a decade old game most people have never played and mostly forgotten the best example?

    Mr. Domino was censored, too.

  • adhesive

    But that’s wrong. Censorship is just when an individual or group’s voice or work is suppressed by another force.

    Nintendo isn’t an indie development studio. Developers and publishers are very different groups, and chances are the games that were developed by “Nintendo” like XCX had content removed because of publisher opinions.

    • Aiddon

      And you’re missing the point spectacularly. It is impossible for Nintendo to censor themselves. TMS and Xenoblade are their IPs and they reserve the right to modify things in localization as they see fit. Period.

      You are aiming criticism at the wrong target. If you want to get mad at something then get mad at American perceptions and social norms when it comes to media. Furthermore, pick your fights more carefully. Complaining over an underage high school student having her cleavage covered is just silly.

      • adhesive

        Let me slowly and clearly go through your entire argument, because you’re acting as if I just spit in your face.

        -And you’re missing the point spectacularly. It is impossible for Nintendo to censor themselves.
        The biggest reason I responded was because your definition of censorship was hilariously wrong. Censorship comes in many forms, and while some forms of censorship are understandable, I think censoring fictional creative works is misguided at best.

        And an individual or group can censor themselves. This is why I corrected you, because you’re now operating on the assumption that censorship only applies to the federal government, when this has never been the case.

        -TMS and Xenoblade are their IPs and they reserve the right to modify things in localization as they see fit. Period.
        Their legal rights have nothing to do with the argument at hand. People are criticizing their shoddy translation work, they’re not saying Nintendo is forbidden by law from changing their games.

        -You are aiming criticism at the wrong target.
        You’d have a point if Nintendo was strong armed into changing their content by the US government, but as far as I know, they willingly censored their own games during the localization process.

        -If you want to get mad at something then get mad at American perceptions and social norms when it comes to media.
        Or I could get mad at Nintendo instead of an abstract force because Nintendo was responsible for the localization of their own product. They could’ve just told overly sensitive Americans off, but they didn’t.

        By the way, there can be more than one wrong party at a time. Just because I think Nintendo screws the pooch with their localization doesn’t mean I think American culture is perfect.

        -Furthermore, pick your fights more carefully. Complaining over an underage high school student having her cleavage covered is just silly.

        Do you honestly think this is a legitimate argument? Censorship is often hated on principle, because it sets a precedent for other forms of localization. If I really cared about anime tiddies, I’d read a doujin or play an H-game instead of buying an intern level translation job.

  • Give me your Fates LE, then.

    I’ll give it a good home ;)

  • Way out of line.

    There will be no personal attacks towards other members.

  • Bluesabus

    Actually, the “kid” addition was a final attempt to garner a response from you, because I could tell from your other comments throughout that you were arrogant enough to believe you’d done no wrong (EDIT: incidentally, I’m glad it worked). The fact that you actually went back to check kinda proves that point. You don’t want to start a flame war? Lol. My first comment here was to say that some censorship is justified dependent on the audience because so many were in an uproar over a small change that they made a blanket statement about all censorship (on a page that had absolutely nothing to do with the censorship, no less), and your response to that was to insinuate my disagreement stems from some inherent desire towards children and hatred of homosexuality…which makes absolutely no sense, because the scene I was referring to (which I only know now after the fact that it was misreported) was a scene that the LBGT community would have made a field day with, which would imply my stance is pro-LBGT, not against. No arguments about why you disagreed with me, just ad hominem for the sake of. Which tells me you were just here to troll and garner a response from me (mission accomplished I guess; which is why I fought fire with fire).

    I “grumbled” about it in other comments because I was flabbergasted by the amount of people who actually agreed with the sentiment “no censorship is justified” without considering the audience it is being localized in (i.e., not just themselves), and was happy to finally find a few that agreed on the same front as I was on.

    I posted 3 “Bibles” as you call them because I actually respect other users enough to have a legitimate conversation with them instead of bashing them for disagreeing with me, and I don’t assume they’ve read my other comments so I reiterate myself so they understand where I’m coming from.

    I’ll admit I posted twice to you because I legitimately wanted to understand where you were coming from and was giving you the benefit of the doubt, albeit while also bothered that you would say something so ridiculous. Obviously that was a mistake, because you have no intention of actually refuting anything or providing any sort of counter-argument, which once again proves, you’re just here to troll, and your original comment to me is rightly flagged for moderation. So enjoy your 15 minutes of “LOL DIS GAI IZ SOOO MAD”; whatever helps you feel better about yourself, bud.

  • Bluesabus

    And yet, there’s currently around 23,000+ “crybabies” who think signing a petition will stop the production of Metroid Prime: Federation Force because it doesn’t have Samus in it. What they’re crying about is silly; however, if what they were crying about was something considered morally controversial, I’d wager Nintendo would be paying attention. If they didn’t believe that in some form, some of these changes would probably not take place to begin with.

  • Infasis

    Wait, Nintendo is publishing this or Atlus?

    • Aiddon

      Nintendo as FE is their IP. Atlus developed the game.

      • Infasis

        Oh yeah, I should’ve thought of that. Thank you.

  • Bluesabus

    Artistic freedom is more easily argued when it’s something that’s used as a story-telling element. When it’s something extra that’s added on, and doesn’t affect the story at all…it’s hard for people to see how artistic freedom applies in that sense.

  • Infasis

    Maybe used.

  • SoloKazama

    awesome:) didnt know that, preordered:)

  • SoloKazama

    2/10;)

  • Memes make sense in small doses in a modern setting game such as this, but I rather have plain o’ woolseyism over reusing what they could find on the internet.

    Furthermore, woolseyism is only accepted as long as the crucial storytelling isn’t sacrificed (which many consider what happened to Fire Emblem Fates).

  • Mr. Game & Watch

    looks good

  • Just putting this out there…

    Please direct your discussion towards the Open Forum. And be civil about it. I understand it’s a topic of much debate, but you either discuss respectfully or don’t discuss at all.

  • Hime☆Sama★

    I certainly will be buying this~

  • Zebimicio

    Yeah “own”

    Facts? All i see is you ranting but hey, that is what the fanboys do amiright?

    • Superior Amygdala

      All i heard was “bark! bark! bark!”.

  • Anime10121

    Hmmmm….. a 5×8 art book and a 6 song CD (lol wut… why even make a cd with only 6 songs :/)…

    As much as I’d WANT an artbook of this game… this LE kinda screams cheap to me :v

    Add that there’s no best buy version and I think I’ll skip this and just stick with the regular edition…
