Talking Point: Censoring Boingy Bits, Bums and Gore

Nintendo Life: The past week has brought us a couple of stories around the localisation of Fire Emblem: Awakening that, depending on your viewpoint, may be considered either funny, quirky or a disheartening example of censorship. We had the Nintendo of Europe translation of one conversation remove a rather juvenile reference to "boingy bits" in preference of praising hair, and a further revelation that, perhaps bizarrely, a picture of a Tharja's derriere in a bikini was crudely covered, yet distinctly racier shots of Cordelia and Chrom stand, with the former struggling to preserve her modesty and the latter showing off his well-toned rear end in some fetching Fire Emblem-branded swimming trunks.
