The number of censored cards is about 40 out of the approximately 350 card images available in the game. This means that over 300 cards are left untouched from the original images.
40!! 40!!!!!!!! THAT'S ALOT!!! JUST WTF??!!
1) It's roughly 40. 2) There are still 310 more cards.
That's still way too many, that's roughly 1/8 of all the cards in the game being censored... I thought the 18 I'd seen posted were too many. Almost double that though? I'm not even sure I want to support this anymore because of that... As much as I want to encourage Japanese devs to bring more games over here...
It's technically 19, they're just covering up some Level 2 and 3 versions of said cards.
7.7 y u do dis
ugh , the west. Sad thing is this actually gives the game more buzz which = more sales , irony .
I hate censorship but i saw the cards and they look like children to me... I can see why it happened.
It's a shame. And the thing is: like so many other Japanese titles, the people most interested in the game won't mind the original version, and actually prefer it that way. Of course, CrossingEden and others like him will complain regardless, but it's not a game for them, not do they have any real interest in it. Still, the censorship is aimed at appeasing just that sort of individual, which doesn't make sense to me.
Well I get it, their reason is completely valid. We live under different socially acceptable societies. It probably would've gotten an A/O rating in the U.S. had the 40 gone uncensored or been banned altogether or some other protestor-filled campaign going against it. Surprised they got away with this much considering all that controversy over Dragon's Crown.
I was annoyed by the news until I saw the pics.....Hmmmm I understand now that there's was no other way to get this game over to the west. If the game plays good I'll still be getting it although I don't understand why they could not just Crete new pics for the western release....?
I can not understand why players keep bought censored games. You should boycott it.
