Street Fighter V was Censored to Keep Franchise T-Rated, a “Family Friendly Franchise”

street fighter v 08-27-15-19

Recently, we reported on Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono issuing a statement regarding the changes made to Street Fighter V’s R.Mika (her finisher specifically) and the following uproar it cause within the community.

Well it seems as though we’ve gotten another explanation from Capcom, this time the reasoning behind it seems more related to the games rating.

A few days ago, Daily Dot Esports conducted an interview with senior product manager Matt “Mattdeezie” Dahlgren, he explains the reason behind the change to R.Mika (and by extension Cammie) was to ensure the games Teen rating.

From the interview:

[…]we are a Teen rated franchise, and we want to make sure we keep that appeal to a very wide audience. We thought maybe in those instances things could’ve been pushed just a little bit too far so we had to tone it down slightly. We want to make sure that Street Fighter remains a family friendly franchise and it’s that delicate balance that we play ensuring that we remain a teen game.

Matt Dahlgren does state the game is still undergoing changes, meaning that it could very well revert to the original form the fans wanted.

Street Fighter V is set to launch on PS4 and PC on February 16th, 2016.

    Oh, fuck no… Because Cammy’s butt couldn’t be seen in SF4 either. And all those costumes.

    But yeah, that T rating would have changed because of a buttslap, Capcom is right! /s

    At least they understand that the fans don’t want this shit. Family friendly franchise my ass. ESRB ratings matter only for 2% of sales.

    You’ll have jiggling boobs but a butt slap is too much for you? GTFO outta here with that bullshit. I’ve seen way worse shit in teen rated games including naked loli’s so I don’t why a butt slap and a cunt shot is going “too far”. For fuck sakes Capcom you can’t even keep your bullshit straight. But yes if you want me back as a customer UNCENSOR THE FUCKING GAME CAPCOM.

    If there’s one thing I learned from NISA it’s to never believe anyone saying that the rating is the reason for a change.

    And besides I mean for fuck’s sake, Senran Kagura Burst is T rated. If an ass slap will raise you to an M then I have to seriously question what the hell is going on at the rating offices.

    Fucking bullshit.

    R, Mika’s lustrous ass, is still in the game, Cammy’s crotch is still in the game.

    Since when did a camera angle warranted a rating change? Hell, R. Mika is still slapping it, you just can’t see it.

    Also, they haven’t submitted the game to the ESRB yet as far as I know, so double bullshit.

    Oh and yeah, Street Fighter was always Teen friendly.

    These days, the ESRB is really lax, at least compared to the social climate we’re around.

    Besides, you think they really care about the games rating?
    It’s street fighter.
    Anyone even vaguely interested in fighting games are already slingshotting their money at capcom and anyone who isn’t still isn’t.

    Their paying audience for the game was decided the moment they announced that the game will one day exist.

    Hatred’s AO rating was politically motivated, given that the game was barely any worse than Postal that got an M rating.

    And the moral authoritarians championed against that game hard, so I don’t know how free the ESRB is of influence.

    No one even cares about ratings these days unless it’s M or AO. When has Capcom ever cared about ratings? I sure didn’t see it when I was fighting a mutated naked woman doing thought provoking poses while fighting her in Resident Evil 6. Or how the SFV cover in Japan has a shirtless Ryu and Chun standing to the side where her dress is exposing all her curves. It’s a pictures screaming that it’s sexy.

    If they have to damage control this much, then they should swallow their pride and change it back.

    Choose one already, Capcom; don’t keep flipflopping around like this with your excuses.

    Either way, be sure to expect lowered sales when first treating your fans like kids, and then treating them like utter morons when further disrepecting them by outright lying to their faces.

    Honestly, the best thing to do as a developer if you want to make a change in your game is just say “we wanted to make a change”.

    If they wanted to make it more “family friendly” they still should have just changed the attack animation to still make it look cool but not having a butt slap. Not make the camera look like it’s glitching out and you don’t even see the entire animation. That’s just lazy.

    Also, this is assuming a butt slap warrant a M rating, which it definitely doesn’t.

    Those recent comments from Ono and this guy are a good sign I think. Developers are starting to realize that there are players who are against censorship.

    They just need to go one step further and evaluate that people have more purchasing power than the PC media and the SJW crybullies.

    As for the statement itself – it is pure damage control.

    Only Ecchi films & western games you get tittys with visable nipples.

    But never ever in Ecchi games funny enough Japanese Dev know when to tone the line.

    It’s true Japanese don’t like violence so Cero Z = 18+ some of the DLC in Japanese games actually uncensored the Japanese version to restore violence.

    Tittys are the best you know breast is best.

    Also don’t worry about your photo as I posted most erotic films ever on here over at mavelous get YouTube banned Thread.

    The ESRB and other game rating organizations make stupid and sometimes arbitrary decisions like that all the time.

    I have yet to hear anyone praise this. Maybe some SJW loser on twitter has, but I honestly think the conservative rating agencies are the ones spurring the change this case. Capcom are still the bad guys for changing it. M rating would have an insignificant effect on sales when your audience is mostly grown men.

    “violence is god’s will”

    Nice, but not true at all. It is the liberal media and left wing nuts that push this censorship. Fun to blame the god squad isn’t it?

    The PMRC was formed by Al Gores wife to save their children from the evils of music and censor it.
    The ESRB was formed because two Democratic Senators (Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Herb Kohl of Wisconsin) started hearings on “video game violence and the corruption of society”. Nintendo also pushed for this in America to hurt their competition…Sega.

    Even today it has not changed except they are hiding thier censorship behind womens rights and internet “safety”.

    These aren’t right wing nut jobs like the press would lead you to believe. When they do show up (Jack Thompson) they are laughed out of the room and lose their jobs, but when it’s a liberal then laws have to be passed now.

    While I don’t agree with this whole thing, it isn’t complete “BS” – keep in mind they said they wanted to keep the game family friendly. While the games shown above may be rated T and be played by Teens and above (or even younger), not all of them would be considered “family friendly.” I’ve played all the games shown above – none of them I would play around family except maybe Toukiden Kiwami (which for some reason, we tend to be okay with so long as there aren’t nipples).

    All systems of rating have put games with more erotic content a teen rating or 12+ rating. So no, I cannot see why these changes were necessary apart from self-censorship due to the same group who have been giving troubles because a game isn’t how they like.

    I know that having principles is hard when it’s against something as little as change a camera angle but this is just one more grain to a mountain for people who want to push an agenda of prograssiveness in videogames.

    That you say that we must grow up and stop playing videogames means that you are just a little child, no?

    Crying over a camera angle change (that did not need to change and had no real reason to change but changed because of “family friendliness”).

    Bro. It’s not about the change itself. It’s what caused it, and the idea that it could happen again. Think a little deeper into things.

    It isnt so much about Capcom removing the angles. Its about the principles behind these changes. Its one thing to make changes on a game during its beta phases before its official release. Its a whole other story when a company like Capcom tries to take a false moral stand claiming to keep Street Fighter “family friendly.” Last i checked a game about fighting comically stereotypical characters from different parts of the world isnt exactly what I would call “family friendly.” Hell Guilty Gear Xrd got away with alot more than SF5 has and that game also has a ESRB T rating. So the whole statement they made just doesnt hold much water.

    You’re not really helping yourself by insulting people just to try make a point assuming if you had one to begin with. The fact that you yourself chose to click on this particular article to bitch, cry and start shit over an opinion just shows how thirsty and desperate you are. Do yourself a favor and leave. You’re just making yourself look worse.

    Why we must always be happy because something does not go worse than it is, when that shouldn’t happen in the beginning? If that’s true, then Mika wouldn’t be in the game. why have a character like her if they want to release the game in middle east?

    Lets see you’re the man child who doesn’t know any insult other than Faggot. I’m a man with a 160 IQ with a user name that’s Pro wrestler’s Junk. I’m smarter than you and everyone else here. I understand why changes have to be made instead of OH NOES SJWs pressure. you dumb manchildren don’t understand that there may be cultrual reasons for these changes and that the game is being launched in more countries than ever before and that changes had to be made so it doesn’t push things too far. It’s already too Risque for some countries, especially in the middle east.

    But people who have to say Faggot and just assume Projection becuase they read it in their 9th grade psychology book can’t understand there are cultures outside or The United States and Europe.

    Stay dumb. I’ll be making more money than you for the rest of your life.

    Already disproven, you’ve made multiple typos.

    -I understand why changes have to be made instead of OH NOES SJWs pressure.
    There is no other reason they can’t just release a version with the buttslap still in.

    -I’m a man with a 160 IQ
    -there are cultures outside or The United States and Europe.
    So let’s bring content from those cultures over to other cultures and fucking rip them apart. Good job, genius.

    If you claim to have 160 IQ, you’d understand your hypocrisy in stating that there are cultures outside of the USA or Europe.

    To anyone saying “but this game did this and has that and was rated T” it’s worth noting that ratings boards are highly, highly inconsistent.

    It’s really not that uncommon for somebody like the ESRB to threaten an M rating if something is deemed a wee bit too bit violent or if a little too much thigh is showing even though there’s E cup cleavage going on.

    lol… nisa not censored anything?

    if they don’t allow the author’s work to shine through on its own merit. is that not still some form of censorship?

    this scene, NISA added a (4th wall) joke that didn’t need to be there.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umQrWAr3axQ

    they changed a character’s name from Estiy Erhart to Estee Dee. srs??… Amelia Earhart was a real person so I know they could have simply changed it to Estee Earhart if they HAD to change the name.

    Philomel Hartung.
    Philomel/Philomela is a greek female name.
    Hartung is a jewish name.
    Is she not allowed to be named that? For what reason?

    Gunnar Damm. why did they change that name?
    Jean claude van dam? Anyone?

    Rozeluxe Meitzen while a made up name is done as a made up “German” sounding name. just simply going Raze sounds cool let’s call him Raze?… also, he’s a calm cool collected and reserved character. why did they change him to be a hotheaded jerk?

    in Atelier Iris, there’s something called geherun (“Ge He Ru N”) which when read sounds like the German word Gehirn for Brain. why did that get changed to “Growloon”????

    Should we then change the stuff in Lord of the Rings? Let’s have Frodo be an asshole to everyone. Let’s not even call him Frodo. No one understands that name. Frederick Brown. yes. Let’s call him Frederick Brown and have him be an asshole to the rest of the party which includes his best friend Samuel Gregory who throws tantrums whenever something happens.

    Wait a minute that what I said NISA did make changes to criminal girl I was responding about NISA didn’t censored & I said it not really true NISA demanded voices to be axed.

    Demand more fog to cover the parts even though it’s not that naughty take the one with glasses here boobs are not cover by thick fog but her buttocks are but still she not showing any buttocks in the uncensored version too she still wearing pantys on, her top is higher half exposure of her breasts.
