Western Dragon Quest fans will be able to enjoy "Puff Puff" to their heart's content in the localization of Dragon Quest XI.
Puff puff is an essential part of this franchise
They did that for DQ8 and that was for the PS2. Still the holy than thou's are still trying to push their agenda as we have seen recently. Fortunately, most gamers have seen through their hypocrisy.
A shame they felt the need to change the names of the characters though...
Yeah! A producer that has the balls to not care about Western SJWs!!!
I hear ya buddy. :)
Are you kidding? Japan has been censoring their games (and anime) for western release for over 20 years. The earliest example I can remember is in the mario RPG (the snes one,) but I'm positive their are earlier examples.
Yeah, the first or second Final Fantasy (in the west) was censored, if I recall. Thought it was a damn shame seeing how there was no ratings board.
No, I'm not kidding, because I'm talking about NOT censoring a game for western release. Quite the opposite of what the Japanese have been doing for over 20 years.
Most censoring came from the notion that the western audience wouldn't understand the Japanese sensibilities. Not that they thought the western audience would just be offended by it. That's kind of more recent. But up until maybe sometime last gen, a lot of cultural references were usually changed as well.
Ok, but your claim is that they finally don't care about western SJWs. For the overwhelming majority of the time they've been censoring games, that hasn't been who they're worried about upsetting or turning off of the product. The "SJW"s didn't suddenly bring about the era of japanese developers censoring their games for the west. So your assertion that they are not censoring the game and giving in to the "SJW"s now is flimsy at best. You're attempting to frame it in a certain way, a way that makes the authoritarian left responsible for the majority of japanese game censorship of western releases when that is not and has never been what causes the majority of the censorship related changes in such games, as evidenced by the fact that it's been happening since at least the 1980s, long before that political movement had any real power. I'm 100% in favor of Japanese games not being censored for the west (regardless of wether or not I like the content they'd be changing) but like, the whole framing of your post is so incredibly off base it's not even funny.
I've never actually played a DQ game, but this is a day 1 buy for me.... weird. lol
DQ VIII is one of my favorite JRPGs, haven't played any since though. I look forward to going to back to the franchise.
I missed out on dragon quest as well but i bought dragon quest heroes 2 and liked it. A traditional jrpg on that universe seems great.
I've been playing Dragon Quest (Dragon Warrior) for 25 years. It's what got me into rpgs. I'm going to wait until it comes to the Switch because it's only truly at home on a Nintendo console.
I need my puff puff.
Thank god. Can't stand censoring in games.
Non-issue. Never heard about anyone crying about censoring Dragon Quest. It only happens to big western franchises.
And most games localized by NISA.
The Dragon Quest 8 port to 3DS was heavily censored and is the only reason I haven’t bought it.
Too bad. Played DQVIII and it was a blast, never noticed anything nor remembered anyone crying for things to be censored in it in the first place. Maybe it was Nintendo's fault. Plus, I see how "Puff Puff" can be a turn on for some guys and how it can be a deciding factor on buying the game or not. Though, I'm more concerned when something intrinsic to a game starts being censored, like the violence and chopped-up limbs being censored in Resident Evil 7's Japanese edition.
8 was butchered. Cleavage covered up. Cutscenes and dialogue altered heavily. Some scenes of even just characters acting mean were babied up so they acted less mean. The 3DS port is a censored mess that I refuse to ever pay money for and give anybody involved in that butchered mess any compensation for their botched effort.
DQVIII for the PS2 had "puff puff". In fact, some of the enemy (ie. witches) had the same capabilities. Actually, you could change Jessica's (PS2 version) clothing more than you could change the clothing of the other characters. Many of Jessica's clothing changes were quite revealing.
cannot wait to play this
I don't know what puff puff is, but I'm glad it's in it! September booiiiiis
Just look at the thumbnail real hard and you’ll get a good understanding what it is
It's just a tease but its pretty funny how they did it in dqviii.
I don’t know the puff puff or anything. I’m playing Ni no kuni 2 still and i already preordered this game. I love jrpg except FFXV or FFXIII series. (ESL guy)
I want to ge it cause the main hero looks like Android 17 combined with Trunks
Why do they need censor ? I only saw products of japan which include very very many short skirt. That is erotic. They need to draw longer skirt, but they only think censor or uncen. Nonsense
lol -__- well...as long as they keep releasing and putting the games on PC I dont care but lord lol, this stuff shouldnt be THAT important. I just really hope the story is good along with the combat. Looks good so far though from gameplay videos.
I hope PUFF PUFF is her nickname for her breasts
Never played a Dragon Quest game. Who is this Puff Puff ? I like the sound of it though. Fug the SJDubbs
