Has Atlus actually censored their own game? A theory about Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE

After the fallout of the censorship of "Fire Emblem Fates" and the controversies that followed, one might wonder if Atlus actually censored their own game? (Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE). Well, this is my (Justin (Jay Shay) Easler, TGG) take on that matter.

There is a very good reason why people are buying Japanese imported games like never before now...

TGG_overlord1672d ago

True, just look at Play-Asia and the DOAX3 "incident".

Simon_the_sorcerer1672d ago

Not to mention Fire Emblem Fates and Treehouse´s crappy localization of the game.

Littil_Devil1672d ago

Props to Play-Asia for sorting that one out, they also took a stand against the SJWs at a very early age.

@ Littil_Devil

Play-Asia is a small-time niche company. It's not on the SJW's radar at all. DOAX3 not coming to the West was Tecmo's decision as they weren't trying to invite negative PR.

Littil_Devil1672d ago

I wouldn´t be surprised if people actually start learning Japanese like never before simply because they want to get their hands-on uncensored games...

ShaunCameron1672d ago

Those people are few and far between.

Littil_Devil1672d ago

I´m done with Nintendo and there BS censorship.

TGG_overlord1672d ago

There are quite a few people out there that feel like that at the moment.

NXSwitch1672d ago

At TGS 2016 awards Smash creator gave a speech & that speech goes to show Nintendo censoring their games so they can sell at a worldwide release. He doesn't say censor but in order to sell at a worldwide releases it has to be aimed at a lower casual crowd which they always do.

TGG_overlord1672d ago

Western localization is a code word for censorship...

I hate NoA & I hope NX is region free.

Kyosuke_Sanada1672d ago

Atlus was known to censor their games since the Playstation Era like in Persona and the recent Shin Megami Tensei IV.

TGG_overlord1672d ago

Was it ever as bad as it is now though?

Kyosuke_Sanada1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

Not that I remember. Most of them were due to full blown nudity on demons, even though the ones with phallic heads were left intact and others were due to strange rules in Japan towards certain adaptations (Such as a certain "person" having a few changes in looks and name but not enough to prevent anyone knowing who was implied.) I do agree that Nintendo is having big hand in this time around.

NXSwitch1672d ago

The day I stop playing Japanese games is when they sell out to the west & start making games full western.

- Ah, because I didn´t start to play their games before early 2000s. So I know very little about what their previous games were like in terms of censorship. Yes, and by the looks of it, everyone gets affected by their "localization policies" in the West...
