[UPDATE] Report: R. Mika is Now Censored in Street Fighter V

street fighter v 08-27-15-8

[UPDATE]

We’ve been alerted to a possible second character being slightly censored, this time in the form of Cammy:

The left is her original animation, while the right is the same animation from the latest beta for the game. You can find the source video for the second image here:

We’re still awaiting a comment from Capcom, and will update the story should we receive an update.

[ORIGINAL STORY]

We’ve learned of a disappointing new development regarding Capcom and Sony Computer Entertainment’s upcoming fighter, Street Fighter V.

The bombastic and quite-exposed fighter, Rainbow Mika, has been spotted in some new gameplay with what appears to be her animations somewhat censored.

You can view her new pre-super move taunt below, via IGN:

(Editor’s note: She triggers her super at the 1:30 mark)

In her earlier build, the camera would aggressively zoom in on her butt as she happily slapped it – prior to finishing her opponent off with a joint-butt sandwich aerial piledriver of sorts. It’s also worth mentioning the camera angle is changed in the scene, as well as the overall style of the scene.

You can compare the censored taunt and her original animation:

(Editor’s note: the taunt is at the 0:55 mark)

We’ve reached out to Capcom for a comment – and we’ll update the story if we receive an update.

Street Fighter V is launching on February 16th on both PC and PlayStation 4.

    Why, why would they censor this. To me now this just comes off as being ashamed of the human body and sexuality.

    What absolute bollocks. Keep the ass I say!

    I bet if enough people spark outrage, Capcom will change it back, preserving the ass for future generations.
    Because when they come for the ass. It gets personal.

    I don’t know, a change in camera angle hardly seems like censoring to me. I definitely don’t consider this as bad as changing costumes, and doesn’t ruin the game for me.

    We don’t know the reason behind the change. Could be that they just prefer this. I’m fine with developers changing things. It’s their game, they can do what they want. Maybe they think it was just too much.

    What I hate is like what NoA does, when they change stuff in games that are not theirs.

    I was about to rip you a new one, but you’re right.
    If the devs changed it out of fear of the eternally offended, bad on them.
    If the devs changed it because focusing on the face more is better, good on them (for doing what they want), but a bad choice IMO.

    What a fucking useless change, takes away from the entire taunt to the point where you might as well change it entirely; why keep the actual animation if you’re not gonna show the full thing?

    Pre-order cancelled if true, no need to waste money when they’re foolishly trying to get in the moralitarians’ good graces.

    I don’t get it. They touched butts while crushing the guys face with said butts and basically joint face sat him to the ground? But the butt slapping gets taken out?

    I doubt this is censorship. Looks more like streamlining the move as the butt slapping is still in it just not the main focus. QA probably thought the camera angle change was too jarring in the original or something.

    I had to watch both clips like 10 times to catch the difference. The real monster here isn’t censorship, it’s IGN’s god-awful fucking video player.

    I actually don’t know if I’d count this as censorship. I’m not denying that it COULD be censorship, and if I find out that Capcom changed it because of external pressure then I’ll get my trusty torch and pitchfork out with the rest of you. If they were going to censor R. Mika, though, I think the focus would have been on the costume: THAT’S what the PC Brigade was throwing their daily bitchfest about, from what I saw. Removing only the ass slap, when the ending pose shows the full ass in proud display (the ass actually seems to have more screentime in the new animation), would be a very odd way to try to appease people who don’t like sexuality. That’s why I’m not convinced this is censorship and not just a poorly-executed camera change for some other unknown reason.

    That being said, the old animation was way better and I hope they change it back.

    Yes, this isn’t censorship. This is more like a writing revision between editions of a book. Her ass and ass slap are still prominently displayed in both scenes. It’s not remotely close to something like removing jiggling physics or a more covered-up leotard.

    At worst, the emphasis of the scene is changed (i.e. what camera angles are for), but nothing is removed (censorship).

    There’s also the obvious fact Mika’s ass (and everything else) is all over the goddamn place any time you’re playing as/against her. B-but it’s censorship! tumblr feminism SJW!

    It’s just more gamers throwing around words they don’t understand. Better cancel your preorders because of a camera angle change! Check out my petition on change.org!

    I’m so sick of all this puritanical bull. The original one was funny and lighthearted fun. That quick smack was very showman like. Exactly what you’d expect out of an entertainer like a wrestler.

    After all their bull I was willing to give Capcom another chance because of all the promises they made and actually buy a Street Fighter game’s first iteration. Something I never do. They just lost a sale.

    I have plenty of other fighting games to play and other interesting ones to look forward to. I’m not going to support this idiotic mentality that anything that can be even remotely interpreted as something sexual must be purged. If Capcom is joining the list of puritans in the industry I’ll spend my money elsewhere.

    Funny coming from the studio who couldn’t give the Resident Evil REmake proper widescreen support, but managed to add enhanced boob jiggle physics.

    She still slaps her ass though, and does the double butt squash too, I can’t really say I am all that bothered by this edit. Now if there was a severe overhaul to her current design that covers her body, then yeah I’d be a little ruffled. Otherwise I just find this to be unworthy of my concern. I kinda feel like some are making this out to be bigger than it really is.

    I’m reading these comments and the people that are claiming to no longer buying the game or are cancelling pre-orders or is gonna buy the Japanese version of the game just because ass is censored for .5 seconds honestly makes it look like you only wanted to play R. Mika or even the game just for her ass. I’m not a big fan of censorship but this is the most harmless, least game altering censorship I’ve seen in any game lol.

    I agree that it’s a silly change to just imply the butt slap through a sound effect but your reaction is hilariously out of proportion. Was your interest in SFV seriously based entirely on R. Mika’s ass? Which is still in the game and prominently featured, by the way.

    I think if they were actually concerned about the sexuality of R. Mika they should’ve entirely changed her character design. The way she is now I found the butt slap funny and just implying it through a sound effect is a bad middle ground. But yeah, seeing people rush to scream about how they’re going to cancel pre-orders over this is baffling.

    It’s not censorship and people are cheapening the term with histrionic complaints. Censorship and “changing something in a way I don’t personally like” are not the same thing. And it’s not like Capcom even stated a reason for this change (that potentially doesn’t actually even exist) but that’s not stopping angry comment trolls from deciding that Anita Sarkeesian has ruined their days yet again like some pathetically unambitious Team Rocket member.

    What I don’t get is that if you’ve got a character with a design like R. Mika, then it’s already too far gone for you to be able to appease the kind of crowd that would get upset about a butt slap. You really may as well just redesign the entire character if you’re gonna try to pull this.

    In all situations like this where it seems like something small you have to keep in mind that for a lot of people it’s not about what was changed itself. It’s the fact that it was changed/censored at all. People don’t like moral authoritarians and don’t want to support studios that censor themselves to pander to them. They don’t want to support censorship and not buying a product is the most direct way to voice their displeasure.

    And again you’re making such an absurdly exaggerated stand over nothing. In principle, yes. When a message is being sent and then retracted because of cowardice it’s a sad thing. When people act like an anime girl slapping her ass being changed to a sound effect (possibly due to a glitch) is some affront their human dignity on the scale of Holocaust denial it’s really truly deeply silly. The level of rage here is so silly and the fact that so few people see how silly they’re being is even more silly.

    While I wouldn’t normally boycott a game for a minuscule change in the game animation, I wasn’t planning on buying SFV anyways. The discussion about censorship is more important to me.

    And this, even if it was done intentionally, is quite harmless at best. We might have a bit of evidence if the changes were done to cover up Mika’s naughty bits, but it is a single animation, and who knows if it was due to the physics of the game itself.

    I just don’t see the issue here.

    Not purchasing the game, post censorship, if proven true, is a valid response. Mika’s ass slap being censored isn’t relevant; they could’ve put more clothes on Necalli or tuned down the boob physics and the underlying issue would still be, if this was done at the behest of the publisher/developer in response to fear or simply wanting to take the easy way, should people complain about a little T&A, that’s a problem. When you tell potential buyers, “this is part of the product” and then change anything in a way that simply removes from the overall experience, be it some animation changes, a graphical downgrade or what-have-you, you are presenting an altered product and consumers can choose whether or not they want this altered product.

    I used to work for a marketing firm that taught us a good way to get someone interested in a product that we were selling in person was to let them hold the item, if even for a few seconds when showing them what it does, then taking away from them to continue your demonstration. It’s like saying, “Hey, you can have this, but under MY direction.” Once someone knows what they can have, it pisses them off to have it taken away.

    If it were up to me, games would come with the option to show off 18+ content like how Brutal Legends lets you choose the language/gore content at the beginning or other titles let you choose whether or not you see nudity. I’d rather have a choice, is all.

    Just the fact that a REO and RE2 remake are underway makes me unable to contain my fluids.

    Still, you shouldnt throw away money at a company like that, no matter their reputation as this industry is ever mutating and companies and policies change even faster

    If its a niche title with a limited edition release, sure thing, but a big company that prints a shitton of copies?

    No, theres no point whatsoever in doing it.

    This isn’t standing up to censorship though. There are multiple people in these comments saying “Fuck this game! Preorder cancelled!” over a butt slap. A butt slap that may only be missing in one video due to a glitch. There’s a line between being strictly principled and schizophrenic paranoia about a developer’s ability/desire to make changes in a beta.

    And I think that’s something people here need to remember: this is a beta and not a finished product. Were this game on shelves and the change confirmed then there would at least be an argument in principle here but it’s not and there isn’t.

    Glad I got a reply. I’m going to name a few key differences that I noticed(and yes, I did watch the whole thing) that is easily overlooked.

    Look at Mika and Nade. In the counter vid, they are back to back on their posture. Their backs are to each other.

    The IGN vid?

    They are side to side aka rib to rib, Mikas left arm curves more, Nade looks directly at the camera, counter vid has Nade looking down. IGN vid has her looking up at camera

    The “new” animation looks jacked up in general. Mika’s side and shoulder are clipping through Nash, and it doesn’t look like Nadeshiko is holding onto any part of him. It looks more like it’s not syncing up properly. I’d say that’s a glitch until it gets confirmed, because that looks like garbage.

    The uncensored one shows her slapping her ass in full view. The censored one has the camera zoomed in to only show her upper body when she does the taunt. The other one is a finishing move where their opponent is doing the splits while being K.O.ed. The censored one has his legs together. A lot of gamers are fucking sick of sexual stuff being censored because of a small minority, who probably won’t buy it anyway, will be “triggered”. I’m a grown ass adult, leave this stuff alone, especially when this shit is so tame to begin with.

    In case it’s censorship, it’d be early ’90s all over again. Do you remember the time when breast bouncing, cleavages and crosses were censored in Western releases of Japanese 16-bit games? Every time I read articles like this, the words “early ’90s all over again” echo through my mind. It’s sad.

    Mika is a blatantly provocative character by nature, since her Alpha days. She just LOVES to show off her goods. Toning this trait down is wrong, no matter the reason.

    I really, really, really hope it’s just a glitch, or at least, the original animation/camera angle/whatever is still in the disc as Japanese version data and not cut from Western discs, so that changing system language in your PS4 to Japanese will do the trick and make your console access Japanese data from the disc (swapping/editing some files for PC gamers).

    Yeah, I feel some people are going too crazy with this. Fanservice is fine, but a developer themselves can decide “hey, maybe we don’t want to have so much of it”.

    Like, not every game needs to be Senran Kagura and have tits flopping everywhere and panty shots every 2 seconds.

    But then, I’ve seen people here give a game praise just for having scantily clad anime girls with huge boobs, even though they know nothing of the gameplay. I’m really starting to think this site values fanservice over actual gameplay. I enjoy fanservice, but I’m not gonna flip my shit if a developer themselves decides to back off from that. Especially when the purpose of the game is definitely not to just exist as fanservice.

    This is why you should get the PC version and by-pass all this crap. Though honestly, they are trying to cater to who exactly? People that are “outraged” and weren’t even going to buy this game anyway? You fully believe that winning over the Quinns and Sarakisens of the world is going to earn you more sales and profit? If they do really feel that way, they will be sorely mistaken.

    How can they censor something that isn’t officially released? It would be one thing, if this game was out and then a patch changed it or if the NA version was covering up things the Japanese version showed… But until the game is “gold” nothing is being censored. The game is still being developed and nothing is final yet. Beta does not equal final.

    Now granted, the changes most likely came from corporate pressure…. and I can see that as a censorship, but if the creator decides to change something by their own free will; well how is that censorship? We don’t know the truth at the moment, so we can’t call this censorship. All we can say is the game has been changed, which as a non finished game, has every right to do so. Calling this censorship is a way to make people click and read an article and is a little misleading, until the facts are out.

    It’s because a company that censors still gets money so essentially they lose nothing from censoring. What’s censored isn’t the problem. I mean you already have a PC so you can look up all the fapfodder you could ever ask for. The problem is the fact that anything was censored at all. As far as the company cares, purchasing the product means you’re okay with it. That’s the logic anyway. We’ll still have to wait and see what’s up with this particular case.

    I didn’t understand anything about your last comment, except for my apparent taste for developer cock; maybe try to calm down a little?

    Anyway, what I can say is that being an entitled angry nerd on the internet is only going to make you, and everyone who shares your distaste for censorship, look bad, especially because this isn’t even censorship; it’s a developer changing things in their game, which is not released yet. They don’t have to explain anything, they don’t owe an explanation to anybody. It’s their game, it’s their choice, and if you support creative freedom you should understand this.

    People here on Nichegamer loves to complain about SJW forcing developers to follow their agenda, but you’re doing the exact same thing here, you’re trying to force your views onto them, instead of simply disagree without getting angry at polygons.

    My advice is that you should start thinking before hitting you keyboard, take a breath and think what you’re about to say. As of right now, everyone complaining about this case of development iteration just looks extremely childish to me, because all you do is prove that you don’t know how games are made.

    Take a chill pill and move on, learn to pick your battles, there are much worse issues to focus on, both in the videogame spectrum and in the world at large.

    Is “censorship” really the right word for this sort of thing? If someon pressured them into changing it, that’s a problem. But if they just decided of their own accord they wanted to tone it down a bit, I’m not sure that should really count as censorship.

    You’re closer than you’d think.

    They’re still terribly depicted female characters, and the removal of the more gratuitous shots could be construed as “slightly toning it down” as they aren’t actually taking any steps to improve the depiction of these characters. It’s a step towards making the characters seem like less of a male-gaze laughing stock, but they’re still overall hyper-sexualized and crude. The removal of an ass-slap animation and a camera angle change shouldn’t really kill anybody’s hype for playing an upcoming release, and definitely isn’t censorship.

    If removing the scenes makes little difference, why make the changes in the first place? It seems like you’re celebrating a hollow symbolic victory more than anything.

    Also, it’s hilarious that a furry of all things is telling me what I can and can’t watch. If I fap to female anthro, does it count as “male gaze?”

  232. Zader Rilune
    Zader Rilune
    November 9, 2015 at 5:58 pm

    It doesn’t make much of a difference, which is why people shouldn’t be clamouring for “censorship” when it’s really not. I’m not celebrating anything, I just find it a bit funny that there are so many people who like to cry out censorship whenever anything minor about the depiction of a character is changed. This is similar to the Skullgirls update that had less than 20 frames of animation changed, but still had various male gamers screaming that it was censored.

    Also, I fail to understand why it’s “hilarious” that I’m a furry, and why you seem to be under the impression that I’m telling you “what you can and can’t watch”.
    No, masturbating to a character, in porn or not, anthro or not, isn’t male gaze, but the creation of a character under the idea that “sex sells” certainly is.

    Designed specifically to draw the eye to what could be, and in Mika’s case, still is a fantastic character, only for their sexual traits.

    I’m glad you’re actually willing to talk about this though instead of just throw random insults about. I like being able to speak civilly with people.

  233. Zader Rilune
    Zader Rilune
    November 9, 2015 at 6:00 pm

    Also, in the case of removing them in the first place, it helps show the characters in a more serious light, and allows them to shine through in more ways than their sexual assets. You shouldn’t need someone to show you their asshole in order to want to play the game.

    What’s wrong them being there for males to look at? After all the vast majority of the people who play these games are males so they might as well enjoy the look of it.

    Comparable isn’t a big word.

    The excuse of artistic freedom is always used to defend something people take offense to, whereas developers doing something people don’t like could be ANYTHING and everything, like focusing on micro-transactions, terrible gameplay, writing a story that makes no sense, or on disc dlc. I also disagree with the idea that games are art. I think people should be allowed to do what they want because that’s what it means to be free, but to call games art? Video games are products, and I don’t enjoy seeing the products I want get butchered, or as people are saying here–censored. Because they wouldn’t have to worry about covering up a girl or removing a butt slap if people like you weren’t around.

    Creative freedom is one thing, censorship is another thing censored or not censored even the lowly self censored the issue is the keyword =influence was the game influence by SJWs pressure groups.

    Batman arkham knight was also in development but who notice catwoman altarted from arkham city to arkham knight as good example & mortal kombat X.

    I’m all for Devs making great games ecchi or the stranded western games that get breasts fully expose in games that angers pressure groups but when Japanese games get the raw deal more so then western games well I draw the line.

    I’m all for free market but not at expense. ?

    OK, so the only good influence is the one coming from the otaku crowd? Devs have the freedom to to pick the feedback they like the most.

    I never said I would influence far from it.

    However later in development like before the game goes gold & then got told the game being censored I would take a dim view.

    I never seen myself as a otaku crowd, but the most important part that you forget is we wanted our games that faithful to the original version.

    Truth be known I must be asleep when arkham knight press release & didn’t see people opinions on the game.

    I only found out when I bought it if I have known then I wouldn’t buy it not supporting Devs that easily influence by not so otaku crowd.

    I’m only a small gog (consumer) that makes up the bigger picture.
