Fire Emblem Fates gets further censorship in the West, the censorship needs to stop

There seems to be no end to Nintendo´s censorship madness in "Fire Emblem Fates". In the matter of fact, Nintendo keeps on adding more gasoline to the fire by removing the petting mini-game feature from the Western version of "Fire Emblem Fates". That´s just the half of it though. So this is my (Robin Ek, The Gaming Ground) take on the matter.

What doesn´t matter? Wait a minute, ain´t you that guy that always comments on censorship topics?

I am the guy who realizes this is 3 FE games we are getting, less than .00005% of the content was cut. Big deal.

CorndogBurglar1525d ago (Edited 1525d ago )

Even if he is that guy, I kind of have to agree with him here.

This is 3 full Fire Emblem games, all with completely different stories and content. All of which are equally as long as Fire Emblem Awakening was.

Even if this rumor is true, which it sounds like it isn't, I'm pretty sure I can go without some weird "petting" mini-game that sounds like it might be bordering on perverted anyway.

Oh well. I play Fire Emblem for the great stories and strategy. With or without the mini-game I'm sure I'll be happy.

It's not a matter of cut content. It's a matter of all these devs and pubs bowing out to pressure from SJW's...and SJW's DO NOT DICTATE WHAT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD SHOULD CONSIDER OFFENSIVE, despite what they may believe.

Either him or kalebninja

Kale seems to want anything remotely appealing to the male libido censored and changed.

And gleefully endorses developers being or censoring their games.

@Eiyuuou
I thought I recognized that name from somewhere.

"It appears as if Kotaku lied about the whole thing about Nintendo censoring "Fire Emblem Fates". So once again Kotaku has been caught lying for clicks..."

What does this mean? Is the Western version going to receive the silly minigame?

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1525d ago (Edited 1525d ago )

unclear yet.
But according to the email that surface on the internet that confirms Kotaku lied.
Nintendo said they will reveal more later.

It never felt so so good using adblock going to kotaku.

TGG_overlord1525d ago

They have a history of doing stuff like this in the past. However, this time it´s somewhat unclear if they made a guess or if they lied about the whole thing:

I had to mail Nintendo directly to check up on this. I made an update on the post late last night:

I had to get in touch with Nintendo Sweden to clear this mess up. The US and PAL (UK/EU) version of Fire Emblem Fates "might" differ in content. However, Nintendo has not made an official statement about that matter. So at this time, we don´t know for sure. I did find this info yesterday though http://thegg.net/opinion-ed...

These leftist media sites have reached a new low. Only a matter of time before Kotaku gets sued like Gawker.

madjedi1525d ago (Edited 1525d ago )

Kotaku is owned by gawker. Among others.

Some background info.

Very interesting. Bookmarked.

TGG_overlord1525d ago

Gawker got bought by some rich Russian guy though. So it seems like the site will live on...

Hello to all! Im just starting my career as a videogame journalist writing for kumazoku. I wanted to write about this whole FE issue. But instead of writing the same thing as everyone else, I wanted to get various gamers opinions. I am used to videogames taking things out because what's okay in Japan, is not seen as okay in the States. It's cultural differences which is a major issue from a business standpoint. So I'd like to know which one do you think it is? Is it cultural differences or flat out censorship? If you are really passionate and want to share your opinion please send a message with first name last initial telling me your thoughts! Thanks :) Live, Love, Game On.
