Report: Capcom Censored Female Characters in Street Fighter V to Avoid Offending People

street fighter v 12-08-15-1

Previously, we reported on how R.Mika’s taunt was changed to not show her butt slap (despite the sound effect still playing). We had reached for a comment at the time, but had received no response.

Now, Street Fighter V producer Yoshinori Ono went on record and explained why the change was made.

In an interview with Brazilian outlet UOL Jogos (with translations provided by NeoGAF user Moraizen), the reason for the change was to not alienate their potential audience. From the interview:

Our objective with Street Fighter ’ is to start over from zero[…] We want the professional players and the casual fans of the series to return, but we also want to reach those who have never even touched a fighting game. So we can’t have something in the game that makes people think, “This is not acceptable.”

According to him the decision was not made due to external forces, but rather was a decision made internally.

We didn’t make any change because of external influences[…]Those changes came up internally. We decided to remove that because we want the biggest possible number of people to play, and we don’t want to have something in the game that might make someone uncomfortable.

When asked what the objective of the company was, Ono explains that it’s to have characters that people can enjoy but not be put off by.

Probably we won’t be able to remove everything that could offend someone. But our goal is, at least, to reduce that number as much as possible so that they think ‘Ok, there is this issue here, but it is within the limits’. We want that everyone can play and enjoy without worrying about anything else.

Street Fighter V is launching for PS4 and PC February 16th, 2016.

How do you guys feel about the explanation of the changes being made? Is this censorship? Sound off in the comments below!

    And yes, I believe this is self-censorship if they’re truly speaking the truth. Which is the worst type.

    Which comes from ignorance or fear. In our case it’s ignorance, since they think this would actually make people play their games, when the actual truth is that they’re deterring their actual customers.

    No one sane wants to support censorship, I as hell will never do such a thing.

    I guess I’ll have to really pirate everything now.

    The kinds of people that would get morally righteous about a butt slap would never let themselves enjoy a game where you play as characters with as much skin showing as R. Mika to begin with. As with almost any other case of censorship I’ve seen over the years, it’s not going to get new customers but merely alienate previously existing customers.

    If they didn’t make any changes because of external influences, then they’re worse than the SJWs.

    They’re not only ignorant because this won’t get them new customers but alienate their current ones, but they’re going down the censorship slippery slope. I hope they have fun trying to prune their fucking games of anything “offensive”.

    Self-censorship is the worst type of censorship, I’ll repeat this until I fucking die.

    Relax people nobody is taking away your games.

    They are just cultivating a culture of fear and self censorship and occasionally cause offline or online retailer or two not to stock a game. Until Publishers and Developers are beaten into submission in which point they will be releasing tokenized minority games, that resemble a gray mold in fear of offending anybody.

    Totally not the same thing.

    Remember guys, don’t get roped into tedious arguments about semantics over the word “censorship”. The first thing SJWs will do when confronted with censorship is to try to redefine the word, so focus on the negative effects political pressure has on creators and cite past disasters to creative freedom like the Comics Code Authority.

    Give the 1954 code criteria a read, it will probably sound very familiar.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comics_Code_Authority#1954_Code_criteria

    A few highlights:

    -Suggestive and salacious illustration or suggestive posture is unacceptable.

    -Females shall be drawn realistically without exaggeration of any physical qualities.

    -Nudity with meretricious purpose and salacious postures shall not be permitted in the advertising of any product; clothed figures shall never be presented in such a way as to be offensive or contrary to good taste or morals.

    And I REALLY hope they don’t censor Chun Li’s dress (those things are ridiculous in a good way lol) or Cammy either.

    Please do tell me how the removal of the butt slap will increase sales.
    Do you think any person out there offended by the butt slap wouldn’t be offended by Mika as a whole, or Cammy and Laura’s costumes? Do you think they would see this news and go “Wow, now that Mika’s butt is out of the picture I sure want to buy SF5!”
    Heck, let’s even take your average, ignorant consume. He see the SFV trailer with Zangief, Ryu, Cammy, Chun Li, and more. And then he sees Mika and goes “WHOAAA THAT’S TOO MUCH! Not gonna buy this game anymore”. Does that strike you as believable behavior?
    Of course I’m not American so perhaps “safe spaces” really have grown to encapsulate such thoughts…

    Now I agree that they probably dont care about this and the decision was probably wrong but a LOT of the non-SJW population is also very puritanical

    Normie gamers won’t stop playing the game or start playing the game because of a fucking buttslap. This is why you’re wrong.

    “Now I agree that they probably dont care about this and the decision was probably wrong but a LOT of the non-SJW population is also very puritanical”

    Again, you have a distorted notion of reality. We’ve already talked about this, you think that because you’re a puritan (you said it yourself, you dislike both violence and sex) everyone else is too.

    “Of course Capcom is going to think about them even if they make the wrong call”

    Their actions don’t portray what you’re saying. They’re not thinking of new customers and they’re alienating their current ones.

I’m a HUGE fan of the Street Fighter series (except the Alpha one cos the characters were all a bunch of fucking fags) but this stupid “offend nobody” shit has got to stop somehow and maybe if the fan base just said “fuck you” this time around then maybe people in the industry will start fucking listening for once.

    Also the SF community formed around solid fighting mechanics not ass. They’re alienating ecchi fans specifically sure. Because they decided youre a smaller market than people who are offended by it (again, I agree theyre wrong I dunnobwhy youre arguing this like I agree with them)

    My entire point was that its not censorship, not that it was a GOOD business move

    Hmm what “external influences” He talking about there is only 1 thing I can think of is SJWs.

    If you believe what he says is true then you been taking for a ride.

    There are many factors that can alter (censored) a game from rating boards & pressure from pressure groups.

    Devs that needs to self-censored because the fear of what the rating boards would say & backlash from SJWs.

    If them are offended then them are in the wrong hobby but I doubt they would played any video games because they spend other times morning about games instead of getting stuck in & play a game from beginning to end.

    “They literally said they want to reach as many people as possible but ok, keep making stuff up”

    Yeah, ok, fine, they said it. So how are they doing this, by the way?

    Oh I know, they’re removing a buttslap. That will make droves of people move to SFV!

    They also removed a camera angle for Cammy. That’ll make even my mother play it!

    “We’ve noticed that our grass is too green, we made it a slightly lighter green, we hope this’ll make you buy SFV.”

    “Also the SF community formed around solid fighting mechanics not ass.”

    The SF community is made out of gamers, young and old, that want their games not to be censored for no reason. That’s not why people are specifically mad.

    They’re mad that Capcom is bowing to political correctness. That they’re making senseless changes. Not because of a butt slap.

    “They’re alienating ecchi fans specifically sure.”

    I think you’re taking “mental” a bit too far. Do you really believe these words you just wrote? They’re alienating people that hope they won’t have to deal with more “don’t offend anyone” bullcrap.

    You’re really out of touch with reality though. Considering how everything else in the game appeases to what you define as “ecchi fans”, e.g. just look at Chun Li’s costumes.

    Besides that, you also think that people that like sexuality or suggestive themes in their games are a minority. Topfuckingkek.

    “Also im not a puritan at all. I have no desire to force my tastes on anyone. Strawman away though, makes things easier”

    You don’t have to force your tastes on anyone to be a puritan. Will you next tell me that “puritans” don’t exist because it’s a group of the 16th century?

    Here’s how I see this logic:

    For those uninitiated in fighting games (myself included), in can be seen as an incredibly daunting and intimidating task to buy a fighting game, especially one that’s an already established franchise.

    People’s best bet is to jump into a new installment as early as possible so that everyone they’ll be playing with will be on the same page. Jump in too late and you’re fucked.

    Now the reason I’m getting into this game is that I absolutely adore the roster they have. I think it’s one of the best in the series.

    Now according to Ono the reason for the change was to try to appeal to as many people as possible by offending as little people as possible, and with the hopes of more female players to pick it up.

    Two problems with this: 1. Unless they are interested in the roster and gameplay, they probably won’t end up buying the game and 2. If they have issue with the design, changing the camera on the taunt won’t fix it. I really doubt someone will see the change and go “Wow I’m less offended by this, I’m going to buy it.”

    While I’ll still be buying and enjoying the game, I can understand why people would be angry and choose not to buy the game or wait for it to go on sale.

    In the end Capcom did a bad judgement call and miscalculated on who their audience actually is.

    >“So we can’t have something in the game that makes people think, “This is not acceptable.””

    >“We didn’t make any change because of external influences”

    Fucking choose one already.

    Same thing goes for lazily censoring the game, but leaving in R. Mika’s default outfit (arguably her whole character), Chun-li’s alt that they’ve marketing, and new character Laura’s huge fucking tits.

    I’ve seen more than enough “feminists” say they still won’t get the game because they find those other elements too “problematic” anyway, so they tried to please everyone and ended up pleasing no one.

    Starting a fighting game is a pretty hard task, especially if you don’t have someone to guide you through it. But as many dicks as there are in the FGC who tell new players to fuck off simply because they didn’t start earlier, there are also a lot of players who really like to help out new players.
    I’m not particularly great either due to lack of training partners (I live in Germany, and there basically is no FGC here), I’d be happy to help anyone who needs help to learn the fundamentals which are by far the most important.

Which is likely true, and that’s what makes it stupid. The sort of people who would be offended by R Mika’s buttslap are likely offended by R Mika herself, so exactly who are we winning over by removing this animation? Pfffft. Whatever. Same shit different day. Another developer kowtowing to the perpetually offended for no damn reason, when the content of the game remains vastly the same.

    Well firstly you’re making huge assumptions about my reasons for not liking those things, despite the fact that you don’t know a thing about me (or anything else, evidently). It’s nothing to do with morality I simply find no enjoyment in it. So essentially unless you retract your statement, your argument boils down to “ANYONE WITH DIFFERENT TASTES TO MINE IS A PURITAN”. I’m sure even you can see how ridiculous that is

    Moving on, you’re still doing it. You’re arguing as if I think Capcom’s decision was a good one despite my statement to the contrary several times now. My point was never that they made the right decision stop arguing that point and either try to refute that their intention was business related or stop replying

    My ENTIRE point, again, since you seem to ignore me every time I say it, is that this was not motivated by censorship. Even if they were trying to appease a crowd that often calls for censorship, the decision was motivated by trying to sell the game to said people, not by those people screeching at them about oppression till they changed it. Hence, “the decision was made internally”

    Also the statements you highlighted don’t contradict because when they say “external influences” they mean “pressure from X offended groups”, not “the mere existence of different demographics”.

    “Trying to appeal to more people isn’t business? I just can’t even fathom how you managed to reach such an ass-backwards conclusion frankly”

    Sure, but their actions are not appealing to more people. That’s a simple non sequitur.

    I mean, if you believe that their actions imply “business”, then mowing down people with an AK-47 is “saving them” because the shooter was screaming it “ALL IM DOING IS SAVING PEOPLE HERE!”.

    “The point is that they were TRYING to do that, not that they’re going to succeed.”

    Mowing down people with an ak-47 is also TRYING to save them.

    It FAILS, but it’s a TRY. Baby steps, baby steps.

    “You seem to think that just because they made the wrong call it proves that they did it for another reason. People’s business decisions don’t always succeed”

    I think you’re just retarded, they themselves proved it to be censorship.

    “Also the statements you highlighted don’t contradict because when they say “external influences” they mean “pressure from X offended groups”, not “the mere existence of different demographics”.”

    This is not only ignoring the current political and cultural climate, it’s ignoring semantics altogether.

    The thing about this is that it doesn’t matter, the influence is objectively external, since they said it themselves, they thought of not offending EXTERNAL INDIVIDUALS. This is irrelevant though, they’re trying to play it as “This isn’t censorship, just accept it.”.

    But since it fits the definition, they can go on and resort to mental gymnastics all they want, they have no valid reasons to do this, they have no support from their community on this, the backlash is considerable.

    “People keep claiming that as a contradiction and it’s ridiculous. It’s either poor logic or intentionally disingenuous”

    Or you’re the idiot.

    “Also i’ll just ignore your lazy insistence on ad hominem since it’s beneath me”

    You’re actually so absurd I can’t even fathom what it must be like to live in such a perpetual hell of paranoia and assumption

    They didn’t “prove” it to be censorship at all. Your entire point can be whittled down to “ANY CUTS MADE TO A GAME ARE CENSORSHIP” because you refuse to accept the possibility that another reason to make said cut exists. If they’d cut something that wasn’t widely considered “offensive” would you be doing the same or just going “eh, it’s quality control/ business/ etc”

    Your premise is flawed because it precludes the possibility of any reason to change a product pre-release besides censorship. And you think i’m retarded???

    Just because they’re going to fail to get a bigger audience from a business decision doesn’t mean it wasn’t one, that was already established

    And your point about external influences once again, completely ignores nuance. They were obviously referring to offended busybodies, not the very existence of things outside of the studio that might influence internal decisions, this is not difficult at all. Businesses literally have to consider the outside world or they will go bankrupt, you’re being ridiculous

Ignoring the fact that the majority of your fans don’t give a damn about what these characters do or look like and will still make you a shit ton of money.

    But yeah, the lesson we are learning of the modern game industry, if a small group of people are offended/going to be offend by what is in your game, just censor everything and make everyone boring grey blobs.

    On the one hand, this kind of minor edit is unlikely to change anyone’s overall impression of the game, so it seems rather pointless.

    On the other, the overreaction is predictably ludicrous. Developers have been toning down nudity and sexiness in their games for decades. There’s probably a tonne more of it that goes on behind the scenes. They’re basically going to be constantly calibrating the amount of it in their games to get the balance right so that titillation doesn’t cross into grossing people out, and in order to appeal to, as they say here, the widest audience possible.

    These guys are probably running all kinds of marketing tests to get feedback on where that line is, and at what point potential new players feel turned off. I very, very, very much doubt the testimonies of a handful of perma-offended Gamergaters is going to make them change their mind about how to pitch it right.

    Beating the shit out of women is fine but absolutely no ass slaps in a teasing manner? It’s this level of hypocrisy that sickens people.
    Nice job assuming people getting offended are gamergaters. I give no fucks about their consumer revolt or movement, whatever it is now. What I do give a damn about is a knee-jerk reaction to an ass slap in a game where you can beat the shit out of women. Capcom has absolutely no balls and rightly deserve the bashing.

    More like, they said it themselves. “We cut out content because people might get offended.”, censorship:

    “The suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security:”

    If it fits, it sits.

    “They didn’t “prove” it to be censorship at all. Your entire point can be whittled down to “ANY CUTS MADE TO A GAME ARE CENSORSHIP” because you refuse to accept the possibility that another reason to make said cut exists”

    You do know that the definition of censorship can include much more than only “obscene” and “immoral” things, right?

    “If they’d cut something that wasn’t widely considered “offensive” would you be doing the same or just going “eh, it’s quality control/ business/ etc””

    I don’t see how this would be “widely considered offensive”, yeah, her butt slap is iconic and it’s made in a sign of mockery towards her other fictional opponent, it’s absurd to say it’s “widely considered offensive” nonetheless.

    Anyway, yes of course. It’s just that it rarely happens that something that isn’t “obscene” to the sensibilities of westerners gets censored.

    “Your premise is flawed because it precludes the possibility of any reason to change a product pre-release besides censorship. And you think i’m retarded???”

    I’m calling it for what it is. It fits the fucking definition so it is censorship.

    “And your point about external influences once again, completely ignores nuance. They were obviously referring to offended busybodies, not the very existence of things outside of the studio that might influence internal decisions, this is not difficult at all. Businesses literally have to consider the outside world or they will go bankrupt, you’re being ridiculous”

    As I said, you’re being retarded, because THIS DOES refer to the “offended busybodies” you fucking idiot. They say it themselves, use your brain and start reading the article.

    With all their talk about not making you buy multiple versions of the game and having additional characters be unlockable, for the first time since maybe Alpha 3 I was going to buy a Street Fighter game on or near launch.

    Yes, and that shouldn’t happen. The idea that I have to coddle to your feelings is absurd, when the emotional output is controlled by you. I’m smart enough to not have such retarded individuals around me though.

    Besides that, we’re talking about art here, we’re talking about products here. What do you do as a company? You target the biggest demographic. Who’s the biggest demographic? Those fuckers that don’t accept that you self-censor like a little bitch.

    This whole “business ordeal” isn’t even related to business. You come here talking to me about fucking reality and right after you tell me that people are just that absurd and would not buy the game if there was a butt slap included. At least, you’re implying it, let’s hope not, or I’d have to tell you that you’re a fucking idiot.

    “I honestly don’t know if I’m talking to someone here who has any experience of socialising outside the internet, so it might be that the behaviour I describe above is totally alien to you.”

    It’s still censorship no matter how you slice it. Capcom lost all respect for me. But oh, when they have characters like Gill, Oro, Urien, and other people with only a single layer of clothes and/or showing muscles, it’s okay. I’m not trying to sound like a SJW but when people pull stuff like that, I don’t think they’re aware of the double standards.

    Just because you changed things and not to expect people to feel “uncomfortable” with something like that doesn’t mean the people who were okay with it in the first place won’t be pissed because of your pussification.

    While I could see it as being “too small” of a change, it’s on top of a large stack of changes that have been happening in the gaming community as a whole that could be seen as censorship or is flat out censorship to appease a demographic that it’s not catering to in the first place. In the spirit of trying to pick up as many customers as possible and make more money in the end. While small, the reaction is probably merited.

    Of course it refers to them but they didn’t actually DO anything so it’s not external influences in the way you’re implying it is. As I said, it’s literally just the mere existence of groups with certain beliefs. People alter products for that reason on a daily basis. I haven’t seen a SINGLE instance of someone actually calling for this to be edited so it’s hardly as if the “evil SJWs” have forced Capcom to change it

    And you literally just proved yourself wrong with that definition of censorship because this work hasn’t been suppressed, it was cut willingly by the original creators pre-release as a business decision made to try to appeal to a wider audience, you utter moron. Good job

    Part of the problem might be that they’re unaware of the huge disconnect between mainstream gaming media and actual gamers.

    “Of course it refers to them but they didn’t actually DO anything so it’s not external influences in the way you’re implying it is. As I said, it’s literally just the mere existence of groups with certain beliefs.”

    Which influenced Capcom to become retarded, yes. Influences don’t mean jack shit, as I said before. This is censorship and shouldn’t be happening anyway.

    “People alter products for that reason on a daily basis. I haven’t seen a SINGLE instance of someone actually calling for this to be edited so it’s hardly as if the “evil SJWs” have forced Capcom to change it”

    It doesn’t have to be specific to influence the thing. You’re just oblivious to what’s happening right now in gaming. Xenoblades, FF, Blade and Soul, Idea Factory saying they will no longer localize if they have to censor, XSEED taking a stance against censorship, constant articles against “sexism in video games” for the most popular games, Witcher 3, Fallout 4, and others, they targeted DOAX3 and the DOA series in general they targeted SFV too because of Laura, they targeted Rashid too because of “racism”.

    “And you literally just proved yourself wrong with that definition of censorship because this work hasn’t been suppressed,”

    You’re a fucking cretin, seriously. Yes, this work has been suppressed by the creators, that changes jack shit. The creators went out of their way to pander to moral outrage. That stays truest to the definition more than anything, self-censorship is censorship.

    “Also kek at someone quoting definitions who doesn’t know how to use the word retard properly”

    You didn’t give a shit when you offended your customers with you bullshit business practices such as killing Megaman, changing Devil May Cry when you didn’t need to, and making us pay more for a whole game. And now you censor your games because of SJW’S. But now you care about a bunch of spoiled whiners who WEREN’T GONNA BUY YOUR GAME ANYWAYS!

    I won’t be buying this game at all and I encourage others to do the same. You better thank the fact that you still have Monster Hunter and Dragon’s Dogma otherwise I’d ban you as a company.

    If this is indeed an internal decision, then fine. Maybe they decided the butt slap was too much.

    It’s not like they are obligated to have fanservice.

    I do think it’s shitty though. The fact that it’s just a camera change is…honestly lazy. They could have changed the animation to maybe make it less fanservicey but still look really cool. No one would have had a problem with that, it would have just been another design change, as usually happens in video games. As it is now, it just looks really odd. So odd that people assumed it was a camera glitch.

    And I dunno, maybe make internal decisions like this before you actually put it out there. When you show off something and then change it, people generally won’t like it. Even if it isn’t “censorship” and is just some minor change.

    “You’re just salty that they decided to target a different demographic to you. That’s hardly censorship”

    Sorry, suppressing scenes in a game is called “censorship”.

    “The key point here is choice. They had a choice. They chose to cut it. They weren’t forced in any way. Do you know what suppression is???”

    Self-censorship, and suppression has nothing to do with being forced into anything.

    “But the funniest thing? You’re now using your own outrage in the hopes of suppressing their new chosen artistic decision. Which is utterly hysterical. You’re not only an idiot but also a total hypocrite”

    So yes, you really are just salty that they changed it to target a demographic you don’t fit. The reasons don’t matter, it was a choice. Censorship is something that is done to you. “Self censorship” is just newspeak for “editing” that people like you use to fabricate controversies when no real censorship happened

    Also kek at using a made up modern definition of retard because you know EXACTLY what it was originally used for. Though i’m sure if someone used a made up definition of sexism or told you that censorship is only done by governments you’d tell them they can’t use new definitions

    Already debunked this. You’re either utterly ignorant of what’s going on in the industry or just willfully so. They themselves said they don’t want to offend people, that means it’s self-censorship out of fear.

    “So yes, you really are just salty that they changed it to target a demographic you don’t fit. The reasons don’t matter, it was a choice.”

    Debunked this too, you’re repeating your same debunked arguments.

    “Censorship is something that is done to you. “Self censorship” is just newspeak for “editing” that people like you use to fabricate controversies when no real censorship happened”

    “Newspeak”, kek. Fucking cretin.

    “Also kek at using a made up modern definition of retard because you know EXACTLY what it was originally used for.”

    “Originally”, and why do you think I should care if you live in the past? Languages change with time you clod.

    “Though i’m sure if someone used a made up definition of sexism or told you that censorship is only done by governments you’d tell them they can’t use new definitions”

    This is you saying you don’t understand what the issue is with a made up definition of either censorship or sexism.

    E.g. You’re limiting censorship with an agenda behind it. Censorship is usually seen as bad, if they can’t define censorious actions as censorship, then you can deny them easier in a game of semantics.

    E.g. Sexism now permits more actions that had nothing to do with sexism, sexism was seen as a negative term if it was attributed to certain actions, now you can push an agenda to make certain actions be seen as bad even if they’re harmless.

    You haven’t debunked anything because if they had a choice the reason they made that choice doesn’t matter, as I already said. Which is why self censorship is a worthless concept. They WILLFULLY made a CHOICE to do something because they WANTED to try to draw in a different demographic. They put that demographic ahead of you. You can’t admit that you’re salty about it so you’re fabricating a “censorship” issue that doesn’t exist

    If you’re going to claim you’ve debunked something, put forth a worthwhile counterpoint to what i’m actually saying. Where in this equation did they not exercise their artistic freedom? Nowhere. They just made a decision with it that you disapprove of. They had complete artistic freedom and this is the decision that they came to. That’s it. If you can’t understand that then I have to just assume you’re being willfully disingenuous to, as I said, fabricate a controversy

    If in between the beta periods they had changed the animation entirely while ensuring that it still fit well with her character, I’m sure nobody would have taken issue. Instead, Capcom when the lazy route and shifted the camera angle, which got people asking questions leading to the current situation we have right now.

    & my copy went through customs alright they even open up the parcel lol..

    Oh this silly argument about gamers being losers. Look, it’s not just about the “fanservice” we’re losing here:

    – Something was taken out due to “potential backlash”
    – Said backlash would only come from people who most likely wouldn’t even play the game anyway
    – The change makes little sense and very minor considering what was left in
    – This minor change can set a dangerous precedent, with bigger changes or censorships
    – Game devs will feel safe to make games how they would like to

    – This can (and has) eventually convince publishers to simply not release games to the West at all

    And I know I know, don’t feed the troll

    You should check out Censored Gaming on Youtube. Usually when a game comes out over in Japan, they usually censor the blood and gore by shifting the camera angle instead just doing something different. They’re very lazy with the censorship. Looks like we’re getting a taste of that shit over here too, but with sex.

    From now on, I will never again trust a Capcom trailer if it doesn’t include an official statement assuring that the content shown will not be censored due to complaints from a couple of Tumblrinas. Heck, the whole game is looking like some unstable construction in danger of suffering even more censorship (it can be an “excessively violent” Critical Art, it can be an alt costume, it can be some “naughty” dialogue lines from Juri, you name it). Not something I would be inclined to economically support, honestly.

    I’m getting really tired of all the people trying to redefine censorship, saying ‘this is just the choice they made as artists to change their own content, it’s not censorship’. They changed it out of fear of backlash, there is no other reason to change it. If you cover up your work out of fear that a third party will come down on you, how is that anything but censorship? What, because you did it yourself it’s okay, even if it was done to avoid the fucking axe someone was holding over your head?

    It’s really disappointing how fucking spineless Ono is being here. Between this and DoA, and Idea Factory I’m really getting the impression that people from the western gaming media are giving Japanese developers a hard time or something. Just out of the blue they’re scared of offending people, changing their games, not bringing them over all at once. Probably threatening bad press and internet mobs.

    It is in fact possible to CHOOSE not to offend people, believe it or not. Especially if you believe it to be a viable business decision. At this point it really just comes down to what assumptions you’re willing to make about their intentions and is a completely pointless discussion

    Businesses are all about making money so I think the most likely reason for them to do this is that they think these people will now buy the game. I still believe, as I’ve said before, that they were wrong, but if they did it for that reason it’s unreasonable to call it censorship since it’s actually just an edit

    But whatever. If you think it’s censorship and won’t buy it then by all means

    So now neo-puritan American norms are seeping through to Japan. Because this act of censorship will be reflected in the Japanese version of SFV as well. We are inching closer and closer to the point where devs that are aiming primarily for the Japanese market aren’t going to bother localising their games anymore because they won’t be interested in compromising their integrity to appeal to the politically correct non-buyers. The golden years of almost boundless localisation of Japanese games might be over in a few years and we are only going to be left with “safe” and “unproblematic” games. Or butchered stuff.

    Capcom’s developers created the buttslap animation, then it was “regulated” by other members of the same group (in all likelihood, some SJW Westerners involved in localization who aren’t even real developers).

    People still bought the game tho so that’s not a good example. The sega version just ended up selling more. There are only 2 choices for sf5 so its either PC or ps4 and the amount of people that care about this stuff with sf5 isn’t that many. There hasn’t been a game in the last few years that didn’t sell because of something being censored.

    Censorship has never made an AAA game not sell so it won’t impact them, it’ll just make them lose a few copies. The majority of people that won’t this game doesn’t even know its an issue.

    Regardless of that I don’t like pirating things regardless of the reason. The answer to not getting what you want isn’t to go and steal. I just won’t buy it if that’s the case.

    So its better to steal than to buy it? You wouldn’t go to walmart or some other place and steal something just because they made you mad correct? Well then its not ok to do it here no matter the reason because stealing is not ok and 2 wrongs don’t make a right.

    Yes I’ve stole things in the past when I was younger and it was wrong then too. If you have a problem with something just don’t buy it. Even buying it used still tells them you want the game.

    The game is about violence tho and that’s what it sells on. You can take the odd sexuality parts out and the game would still work as it. So why do you have to use an extreme to make a point here that has nothing to do with anything? Ono quote is stupid but yours doesn’t make sense either. Its not like they are even taking out sexualized clothing, they just changed the angles.

    Whatever. I’m still going to buy SFV but its eye opening to know that a demographic of people who will never play SF and will probably still blacklist the game can impact the developers & fans experience. And here I thought Capcom couldn’t possibly sink any further.

    They aren’t really alienating their fanbase at all. Besides this place is called niche gamer and people here alone don’t make up even 1 percent of who they get their sales from. There was a shyt storm over on disc DLC for MKX, that didn’t stop the game for selling over 4 million between ps4 and xbox one. What ono said was dumb as a hell but at the same time you people are using logic either. Passing on a game for minor changes. Yes I know principle, but principle doesn’t count for anything.

    It’s not about dishonesty, it’s a little thing called “tact”. Do you go around making pointless conflict and end up so alienated that your only source of social reassurance is circle jerking on Nichegamer, or do you leave some things that aren’t worth talking about alone?

    Especially considering that pretty much no one I know could give less of a shit about any of this. They aren’t bloody gamergaters or SJWs. Normies don’t give a fuck about this and as I said on that other article, i’m not a keyboard crusader. I’m not wasting my time trying to make people care about it

    Actually, that right there IS the reason I picked it. It wasn’t Midway that lost out, but Nintendo. While the Genesis version was inferior in technical fidelity compared to the SNES version (washed out colors and missing frames, rough music), people were willing to put up with it for the violence alone. As such, SEGA won out big time on the home console ports of MK while Nintendo’s reputation took a hit.

    If anything, with PC modding being as prevalent as it is, the PC version of SFV could prove to something of a “Genesis” version of the game. Will it sell more? Probably not, but the option is there.

    So instead of trying to talk them into joining in with all this nonsense it’s easier just to not talk to them about it, and if I were hypothetically to talk to them about censorship i’d pick a less egregious example than the Yohjo Simulator one since it’d be a much easier and smoother discussion

    Ok so i noticed the original posts only mentioned friends but im talking in general with anyone you care about. No i dont consider it any kind of loss of artistic integrity. Mika is still the same sexy character shes always been. The slap is still there just out of view. Originally i thought i was out of taste that they decided to censor it but after the bullshit “we wanted a Teen rating” excuse they pulled im second thinking it. This is due to the commentor posts of what kind of games got teen ratings and if those games got teen ratings theres no excuse for capcom

    It’s pretty shallow only wanting to associate with people who are similar to you don’t you think? I make friends with people because I enjoy their company, not because they agree with me about everything. It’s as simple as that. Like I said, most of the people who care about the same shit I do seem to be utter pricks (as you’re so aptly demonstrating right now in fact)

    Also your comments about how I only surveyed this one site are irrelevant because that’s pretty much the only place anyone who gives a shit about any of this exists to begin with besides maybe 8chan, which I have no intention of visiting

    Also focusing on the anime avatar when that obviously wasn’t the point. Pretty much all of my friends are into anime so nice try, you know I meant all this censorship nonsense. No one outside of NG users and whatever leftover dregs of Gamergate are still lurking about actually gives a fuck, and I don’t care to befriend any of those people

    Maybe if you weren’t so incapable of thinking in anything but black and white you’d understand how idiotic every single thing about that statement was. I mean for starters the concept of “normie” actually has literally no meaning other than a made up derogatory term social pariahs use to feel good about themselves

    That “us or them” mentality is ridiculous. You genuinely believe there’s no nuance in human personalities? It’s either 100% kick your feet about anime titties, censorious marxist or generic normie. Nothing else exists?

    Believe it or not people who aren’t “normal” can have friends (which seems to be the common standard for calling someone a normie) simply by not being an emotionally and psychologically stunted jackass who thinks it’s perfectly reasonable to go around calling anyone he disagrees with a faggot. There’s a reason people don’t like you and it sure as shit aint because you’re not a “normie”

    Implying that 1: “normies” is a thing (which is a concept I just deconstructed you’re literally replying to the comment where I did that) and 2: that the group you falsely perceive as being them has any power over what gets released besides market power (so if you believe in the free market then cry harder and if you don’t then welcome to cultural marxist town hypocrite)

    It’s not like an army of dudebros in basketball shorts lined up outside Capcom to protest ass slapping or some other ridiculous notion of “evil normies suppressing my niche tastes!11!!!1!!1”, Capcom looked at the mere fact that those people exist and, of their own accord, went “well maybe we should sell to them too” (and once again, before you go off on a poorly considered tangent, I don’t think that was a good decision, but it’s still not suppression by any definition of the word)
