A new wave of Genshin Impact censorship has led to Mihoyo changing the default outfits for four of the game's characters in China.
When China bans Winnie the Pooh, what else could you expect? lol Countries that appease this regime for the sake of "doing business" will backfire 1 day.
Lol they banned Winnie the Pooh, China is just the worse with all the crap we heard about them over a year.
Western Taiwan needs to chill out already.
I literally laughed out loud at this
Ironic they are doing this with Genshin when you see some of the outfits they have on Honkai
It only affects the China servers but this does pose a question of pre-censored characters in the future, I mean it's already happened with Shenhe. If Mihoyo was smart, they'd do everything in their power to completely move the company to Singapore but I highly doubt that'll happen. The CCP will do every sleazy thing in their power to keep that money flowing into their coffers.
Free the belly button!
They do the same for the USSA.
Genshin has the most beautiful character design out there, and even if they are not something at the beginning (venti) they grow on you by playing the game. So sad that mihoyo must do this.
I am not with censorship but I think I am the only player in the world that think these outfits look better
You're not the only one, but definitely in the minority. Thing is, the issue is not so much whether people prefer either design, it's about China taking away the artists creative freedom to make a character look how they want them to look.
Yeah China act like it owns every franchise and can do whatever they want with it
There was an update two days ago, and as soon as the update finished, I saw the words MiHoYo under the Google Play Store Icon for Genshin Impact(the publisher) change to COGNOSPHERE PTE. LTD.(this change to the entity in Singapore was planned since Summer) It probably has to do with this China crackdown on everything. Many believed that the change was to help avoid censorship, but I don't know. Still happening.
Guys China is comming for us! Cultural domination is a hot topic in china government.
