Why? The Deluxe edition already exists, this allows anyone that purchased the Standard to upgrade to Deluxe without spending money on the entire Deluxe version price.

Brand new outfits? Aren't they the ones that were censored? Fans got up in arms about when the devs changed them a little bit? Well whatever the case, they should never have been censored in the first place. Glad the "original outfits" are back, so it seems. I personally don't care about the outfits per se, but I do care about censorship in the games industry and I hate it when it happens.

Jury is still out on it being censorship but ok

lucian2292d ago

The outfits were Def changed that's one thing for sure. And and in a lazy way.

Aside from that, yes there are new outfits including two new ninja ones that weren't in game at all

It’s so weird right? Like their “intended designs,” but then give the uncensored variations? Whatever it is everyone can now have their cake and eat it, too now.

But yea, straight up censorship and a lazy “reasoning” behind it. This all could’ve been avoided had they just done this in the first place… but all’s well that ends well.

lucian2292d ago

i think in the end it helped with sales; bad press is good press as they say

blackblades2d ago

This couldve been avoided if they made the changes before the game went gold. Next time Stella blade 2 make sure the game is the way they want it before it goes gold. Also the multiplatform game gatcha I guess I'm curious how that is going to go. Considering how nikke is on mobile how stella is on console

blackblades2d ago

The OG ones arent back these new ones are recolored versions of the OG ones. Meaning they didnt change them back. They were probably intended to be that way like the creator said.

lucian2292d ago

then version 1.0 wouldnt have been different

CrimsonWing692d ago (Edited 2d ago )

That really makes no sense considering they made variations of suits. These suits are literally variations of the pre-patch original designs and again think of it this way, if those previous suits were always the “intended design” why the huge push back or need for “internal discussions” when they could’ve easily reversed the changes with a patch if they always intended to release the original “unintended design” versions later? It makes absolutely no sense, so what, these are the “unintended versions?”

I mean the guy even said in an interview the changes in the patch were going to upset people, so…. Why would you do that when you released the game knowing not everyone would be able to do the update patch? All these people without internet are getting the unintended designs?

It’s all super weird. What I think happened is the “internal discussions” was with Sony and they got Sony just to ease up. One thing’s for sure they can’t patch these up and say the changes were always the intended final design…

@Crimson
Where did they say there were internal discussions about the designs you feel were censored?

“At the same time, Kim also understands that this answer will not convince all users, hence, they are discussing the issue internally and will be coming up with a solution soon.”

That help, bud?

And I’ll let you dwell on this thought, if the outfits were never intended to be a design… why are they now? Also, why are they the variants of the censored outfits, uncensored? Keep in mind these were the outfits released on the disc sent to retail where the developers knew not everyone can do the updates to patch them, sooo… Super weird, if you ask me.

I wish I was as gullible as some people. I always wondered how politicians can think they can get away with bullsh*ting people with PR talk… I now know why they think they can get away with it.

Stellar Blade has sold more physical copies than Dragon's Dogma 2 in Japan, despite PS5 exclusivity

By the looks of it, PlayStation 5 exclusivity does not hurt the sales of Stellar Blade in Japan as the game has passed 90,000 sold physical copies.

Hugodastrevas2d ago

Stellar Blade really deserves way more praise than it got, devs have been adding more and more content, for free, since release and the game already was great to begin with!

BrettAwesome2d ago

More than it got? It got tons, by everyone except the sad wankers who's idea of a sex life, is pulling on their dicks while watching big fake cgi titties 😂

gerbintosh2d ago

Don't see the difference between cgi titties and fake boobs. Also no difference to wanking it to either one of them since both aren't physically there

RiseNShine1d 23h ago

Salty that the game is doing well hm? ;) I suggest some cheese with your whine.

Skuletor1d 20h ago

So you're saying the people that like watching CGI tits didn't praise the game? An educated guess is you meant the opposite.

BrettAwesome1d 19h ago (Edited 1d 19h ago )

@Risenwhine
What the fuck are you talking about? I think it looks like an awesome game. I don't get the sentiment that it didn't get as much praise as it deserved. The only ones who's been shit talking it, are sad wankers with no sex life. Am I whining? How? 😂

I think we can safely claim that Stellar Blade 2 is confirmed!
I got it day one, i have some backlog due to RDR2 i just platinumed.. i will get to Stellar Blade in the near future

shinoff21832d ago

Same but I'm hitting yakuza right now. Stellar blade looks cool though.

neutralgamer19922d ago

Capcom really dropped the ball with DG2. They had easy success on their hand but instead with their stupid decisions ruined the games success

Stellar blade is an amazing game and deserves all the success. For all the artificial hate it got from people who had no interest in the game to begin with this shows if you make a good game it will sell. The so called 1st party drought from PlayStation has meant 4 exclusives in 2024 so far. Other companies need to learn how to run a business and plan for the future

H92d ago

Stellar blade is performing very impressively there, DD2 didn't do well because word of mouth destroyed it's reputation and not about the Microtransactions or performance, bad word of mouth about how the game lacks so many things that were in the first one

Redemption-642d ago

DS2 sold 2.5M in a little over a week, what the hell are you talking about?

H92d ago

"there", that's Japan, this article is about Japan, the bad word of mouth is about Japan
