Despite the Censored Petting Mini-Game, Fire Emblem Fates Still Uses Live2D Assets

FEFates 2-4-2016 - 1

Though it’s not straight from Nintendo, we now have confirmation that the localized version of Fire Emblem Fates has not removed everything to do with the Skinship mini-game.

Thanks to Polygon’s livestream of the localized version of Fates, we’ve now seen the inside of the Private Quarters, and how it works. Once you’ve invited a given character to your room, you be brought to the last portion of the Live2D section with a voice clip.

So, while the petting portion of the mini-game is indeed out, the majority of the content hasn’t been removed. It’s still anyone’s guess as to how or if this may change for character who’ve married Corrin, but at least not everything was removed.

Fire Emblem Fates is launching on February 19th in North America and sometime later this year in Europe.

    My bet here:

    >They fucked up the game with bugs during the localization of this part because LOL TREEHOUSE
    >Instead of trying to fix it and DO THEIR FUCKING WORK they decide to just remove it
    >Say they do it as “part of their localization work for the western market” instead of just admitting that they are lazy and useless
    >Get all the SJW defending this SOMEHOW when it just doesn’t make any fucking sense to stare into your waifu soul instead of just patting her (BECAUSE PATTING IS SO SEXUAL AND GROSS, OF COURSE)

    You know what makes this whole thing even more disgusting? That Nintendo doesn’t even respect their customers enough to just come out and be honest about their censorship. We have to wait for sites like Polygon to show gameplay footage to discern the censorship in action. Even if you’re one of the people who argue that it doesn’t matter if a “creepy” aspect is removed, you should still care about how Nintendo doesn’t even have the decency to just come out and say they’re removing content.

    I know it’s really popular on here to bash on Nintendo for removing content from games during localization, but I don’t think there’s any need to speculate on what went on during development and claiming that Treehouse was “lazy” and “useless.” That’s rather crude and unfair. I’m glad we’re actually getting the lines and dialogue.

    I’m pretty sure during the stream they probably called this “creepy” or something along those lines and probably applauded Nintendo for censoring it in the west.

    But we are not getting those lines and dialogue. There are lines that only trigger during patting itself. With that removed we miss content. We are getting less content of the same product than our japanese counterparts.

    And again, this was my bet, it may be another reason, but I have my reasons to think so. It’s not the first game that comes bugged ONLY in the localized version after Treehouse work, there have been also games like Xenoblade were they went for memes and stupid lines instead of trying to keep the complicated lines about the logos and the philosophy behind the game, they removed entire lines of dialogue in Awakening for no aparent reason too, where the only explanation there was pure lazyness because they weren’t nothing to censor the game for.

    Crude? Sure. Unfair? Not so much considering their previous historial.

    Thank goodness they removed that gross petting game. You know what I really hate in games made in other countries? Anything at all related to the culture of that country.

    I can’t STAND it when the localizers don’t stop to consider that I might not want to be exposed to different cultural norms. I don’t want to know what sort of gestures of love and affection some foreigners might engage in with each other. Those sort of emotions aren’t some universal thing that can be expressed in a multitude of ways. There is ONE true way they can be expressed and that’s MY way.

    Seriously, I don’t need to understand these people. They only exist to churn out product for localizers to carve up with the cookie-cutter of sameness I feel safe with.

    As I wrote before: “In a global world where news about the original version and localized version of a game are indistinguishable, publishers should be obligated to disclose any censorship.”
    Publishers go to great lengths to get people to pre-order games including exclusive pre-order bonuses and DLC.
    Customers base their decision to pre-order a game on all the information they can get and in the case of localizations from Japan that’s obviously Western media coverage about the Japanese version of the game. Essentially, if publishers don’t disclose removed/altered content in time, that’s pretty close to false advertisement, but of course they can wiggle themselves out by blaming journalists. This abuse of the division of publishers, PR and journalists seem pretty unethical to me.
    We need more consumer protection for video games.

    I would import the Japanese game, and then use the fan translation if they had fully taken out the costumes AND the entire minigame or changed the entire story. While I don’t care for censorship or the alteration of dialogue to appease people who won’t even play the game, I am not going to deprive myself of a series I have been playing since Genealogy just because a small feature was taken out (and not even entirely at that) and a few character supports have been changed.

    I was just saying I don’t believe it’s fair to call the people who work in the Treehouse “lazy” since we don’t know what the exact behind-the-scenes decisions were in regards the “skinship.” I meant just assuming that the fact the game skips the “skinship” means that Treehouse was lazy is unfair.

    Also, I have no idea why you’re attacking me with swear words when I haven’t been attacking you.

    And stop white knighting all of this shit you were never going to buy it anyways. EVERYONE here already agreed censorship is bad, so our posts aren’t going to help stop it, which you claim seem to claim your goal is.

    If you actually wanted to help stop it, go to more public sites, or to places that agree with the censorship and put out your opinion there. Nintendo of America definitely isn’t going to read your shit posts and the people who support censorship don’t hang around here either.

    At first I thought I’d be mad like everyone else… After thinking about it though, skipping to the stat boosts without having to go through all the petting just saves me time. As a busy man with a job and a huge backlog I do like saving time when I can. Can’t really imagine myself wasting too much time with the petting even if it was there… Sucks for people who do care though. I won’t judge if you pirate and use the FanTL lol.

    Plus after that unboxing video, I don’t wanna give up my Special Edition pre-order anyway. :p

    I have trouble keeping up with people like you, but yeah I guess you could call me someone who doesn’t care. I can guarantee I have watched more anime, and played more video games than you and that’s my niche. So long as it isn’t outlawed I will continue to not care and continue to be someone who in your eyes isn’t even better than a “normie” <3.

    So my question is this: Whats the point of keeping the skinship feature half-assed? It doesn’t excuse NoA on the fact that they’re still removing a specific gameplay mechanic. I guess this is their attempt to play both sides of the fence to try to please everyone. The problem with their approach to this localization is that NoA/Treehouse is straying away from the original Japanese version and at the same time expecting people to pay full price…..well $80 for both versions and the 3rd version which is DLC. From the looks of what we know so far this localization version of FE: Fates is that of a gimped version compared to the Japanese version.

    Well, 1. bayonetta was not localized by nintendo, the series was PICK UP by nintendo.

    2. The reason people didn’t complain about censorship back then was due to the fact that it was almost impossible to know what was in the original game without at least knowing someone who knew the games language, and had the original. The reason it gets so much heat now is because now we are able to communicate using the power of the internet, and able to get information by said communication.. Back then, you only had that one kid with the dad who worked at nintendo.

    3. Ya , Japan does have it’s own censorship, and that won’t change until the people start asking for better localization for them. I’m sure their are plenty of people who are tired of having cut content for their version of the fallout series. The thing is, we can’t do anything for them, because we don’t live their, but we do live here (In the west.)

    That is a very immature way of thinking man. I mean honestly…

    Just because he said Nintendo of America might not be as lazy as we’d like to think you now hate him an want him to commit suicide because NoA does some bad things?

    He didn’t defend censorship he just stood up sayin that they might not be as bad as we’d like to think, that doesn’t change that they are still bad.

    Hell I’d do the same thing for historical villains. Hitler might’ve been a terrible person but he was a great leader.

    Or President Andrew Jackson is basically the incarnation of satan, but he has done some really badass stuff, like he got shot in a duel and then still shot the other guy and killed him and won IIRC.

    Just so you know I fucking hate Andrew Jackson more then anyone in existence. If chopping of my balls and eating them, and then killing myself in the worst possible way made Andrew Jackson die as a kid I’d do it right now.

    So if I can put aside my hatred for that monster and admit he did a few, mind you very few cool things. then I don’t know what is your problem.

    I agree, I do support the butchers but if I didn’t I wouldn’t get any meat at all outside fan translations. Nintendo has never really done me wrong as a company, when they start removing full features (in this case the full petting minigame) and things that actually 100% impact gameplay I will start caring. The one recent thing that irked me as Lin’s censorship in Xenoblade, it was such a lazy patching that it looks hideous they didn’t even take the time to at least remake her outfits.

Now no one can complain about censorship of any kind without getting compared to some anime-faced fuck who can’t stop himself from making a scene in every thread, telling everyone who isn’t as fervent as him to kill themselves with a pair of box cutters and to bleed into the sewers.

    You shouldn’t be glad that you’re getting less content, but hey, be my guest, be an apologist for Treehouse. Since this isn’t the first time they fuck up, and won’t be the last.

    Exactly, we should all just pirate this game because they show they either don’t care or allow their branches to not care about us customers.

    Funny thing is though NISA seem to going from strength to strength and there output is increasing yearly especially in Europe. So they don’t seem to be hurting from a few people “boycotting”.

    Heck they even went to the trouble of releasing Mugen Souls 2 despite the alleged boycotting of the first game. I expect Criminal Girls 2 to be announced as well before to long for a western release.

    Which means its still missing a lot of unique animations and VA. Hell theres barely any point to the live2d because you only see it for a few seconds and it has nothing to react to. On top of changing Elise to be 18 and generally very very poor quality translations if Awakening is anything to go by, who knows what else is going to be unearthed.

    In addition to whats in the threads, if you’re above 10.3 there’s still a way to apply the fanslation the cart. If you’re below you can either apply it to the cart or just install it as a downloadable game.

    They’re also going to have a way to patch the petting feature back in and undub it if you don’t want to wait for them to translate everything (the western version)

I personally don’t like that it’s censored either but attacking other people isn’t going to help the problem. I’m to lazy to care so long as the game gets brought over without any full on content cut (in this case the petting mini game is still partially intact) I will stay the lazy that I am proud of.

    Again with the attacking, is there anyway you can converse without using derogatory terms?

    That’s because weebs are weak-willed in general, and will also act like moralfags (in post-purchases rationalization) when they see people just pirating the jap game or a modded version of the game (not everybody has the means to import and lets not forget you have to hack the system in the case of the 3DS to remove the region lock).

    Main reason why I wont any improvement in the West when it comes to vidya. The comments section is the proof that people will justify any practice (translation, censorship, cut content, etc.) so long as the game is translated in english.

    In senran you be poking, petting the girls yes it not a ninty own game but they did endorsed the game.

    But fire emblem is not a ninty game it third party the same as senran so I think it hypocrite of them to force changes to the game.

    The minigame was about petting everyone that come to your room, you can divide the people complaining between puritans that think these isn’t good for fire emblem because is a serious game and people who think that showing affection to other people is problematic.

    Wall of text time:
    That… could have been worse. Not as bad, but pretty unnecessary in my opinion.
    Used copy it is. Petting aside, I am still interested in FE Fates. I’d pirate, but buying another 3DS + homebrewing it for essentially only 3 paths in one title seems a tad… excessive.

    Got other games to invest my money in in this first half of the year: Senran Kagura Estival Versus, Stranger of Sword City, Trillion, Neptunia V-II, Digimon, I could go on. And I’m sure that list of games I want is only going to grow.

    The whole FE fiasco was just riddled with unneeded drama. Between horrible mistranslations from Tumblrinas over Soleli being debunked by people more fluent in the language and the petting removal, as well as an apparent age change with Elise, this whole thing is a mess. Combine that with not getting JP audio licences for the game and it’s gonna cause a bigger divide, considering Awakening (surprisingly) had dual audio.

    Some people may be willing to justify the decision by calling it “otaku pandering”, but that justification is just as bad, if not worse than the people critiquing the decision to remove the stylus part of it. In fact, if were gonna go this far, let’s go back to 2012 and 2014 when Project Diva f and Project Diva f 2nd came out respectively. Where the hell were the complainers there when you could headpat Vocaloids in the Diva Room? I know where I was: enjoying the game and minding my own business. Granted, released on a different platform, done by different developers and publishers and aimed at a different audience, but it’s a fair point here. Fast forward to present day and apparently, headpats in a Strategy RPG is crossing the line inspite Pokemon X/Y having you pet Pokemon with Pokemon-amie (optional feature by the way, just like the skinship in Fates) and Dream Drop Distance having a similar feature. That considered, it’s a pretty backwards decision there if you ask me.

    TL;DR: We’ve gone a bit backwards.

    Matching skin tone is actually a very important part of fashion and they didn’t adjust the outfits at all. Their outfits ignore basic rules of fashion (color theory) IN A GAME ABOUT FASHION.

    I think the point they’re trying to make is that if you cared about the content you had no valid reason to buy Fire Emblem because it’s supposed to be an SRPG and not a trashy ecchi game. Of course that doesn’t justify cutting the content either, they’re just trying to make a distinction between “real” FE fans (aka people who liked it before it turned into a weeb dating sim) and people who just wanna grope their waifus

    Not that i’m agreeing with any of this before someone jumps down my throat, just explaining

    It’s essentially the same principle as the “SJWs don’t buy games” argument only it’s “ecchi fans don’t buy serious games”

    Gonna buy it used but mostly just because of the fact that it’s 2 games.

    Censorship is bad but it still astounds me how many people don’t actually understand how any of this works. Boycotting only hurts the source of the uncut version. NoJ has already paid for the localisation. The people “butchering” (and I use the word very sarcastically because even if all censorship is bad, taking out a tumor doesn’t somehow make the game more cancerous) the game have already gotten their money for doing it. I’m sure they’re all reading your comments about how much your boycott is gonna change things and laughing to themselves

    “But publishers will stop hiring them” I hear you cry. Perhaps, but guess what. There aren’t enough localisers to go around. If any of them stop getting employment, the games they would have picked up simply won’t come over, the others don’t have the resources to just take on every single project

    Plus given that the lack of sales for the game directly hurts the original creators there’s a chance there won’t even be another game to localise to begin with

    All i’m saying is, if you’re mad that they took the content out just admit that you’re mad and don’t sit on a high horse pretending like you’re going to change anything because I can absolutely guarantee you that at best you’ll make things worse (unless you subscribe to the completely moronic notion that no games at all is better than games without the pointless sexual pandering)

    February 5, 2016 at 7:43 pm

    Audie, the fact that you have an issue with this is pathetic honestly. Its a fashion game and when you bring it to other countries outside of Japan it should reflect that audience. Making “1/4th instead of 1/10th of the characters black” isn’t censorship, isn’t taking away anything from the game, and is not a negative in any way AT ALL and if you can find some reason to think adding more black characters into a game is a negative… well… think about that for a second.

    As a professional artist, your “color theory” claim is absolute bullshit and I’m going to call you out on it. “Color theory” may apply in regards to a stand-alone 2D image but you’re literally saying “black people can’t wear a black dress that has a spot of pink on it, it doesn’t look good”, because thats what that screenshot provides. If you actually think people with darker skin shouldn’t wear certain color clothing and that it “ruins the gameplay experience” that is 100% on you to blame. The screenshot you provided, their skin color really does nothing to change the “color theory” relationship to their outfit. To claim that making characters have darker skin and hair “cancerous” is absolutely vile.

    “Violate the original creator’s intent”, please link sources that claim that the one, singular, game designer involved in chosing that game’s skin color is upset that they changed her skin color in the Western release, and that the artist finds the changes to be “against their artistic vision”. I’ll go ahead and respond to that myself: you can’t. Countless designers and artists work on a singular video game title and they are paid to create the work given to them. Unless you can provide factual evidence that the changes upset the “original artist”, I can guarantee you that the artists that worked on that video game do. not. give. a. shit. about the fact that their skin colors were changed.

    And “utterly ignore the rules of fashion”? Since when did you have any authority over fashion? I’ll let you get back to me on that one. But short answer is: you don’t.

    Seriously, can you be any more delusional? Upset to the point of calling it “cancerous” that a game company made more characters match the skin tone of the young girls who will be playing this game entirely revolved around customizing the clothes and looks of girl characters. You actually call that “censorship”??? You called changing the race of lighter skinned characters to darker skin colors “blackface”?? You simply are just uneducated, factless, and just flat out wrong. You are obviously racist and in denial. Get over yourself, stop using “color theory” and “rules of fashion” to assert your belief that you flat out do not like the appearance of black people and you for some reason find it “cancerous” that a game included more black people.

    ” but you’re literally saying “black people can’t wear a black dress that has a spot of pink on it, it doesn’t look good”

    No I’m not. You are literally fabricating claims of people you disagree with then claiming your fabrications are exact quotes.

    That you deem removal of Asian characters a positive shows you are nothing more than a racist who desperately wants his views to be gospel.

    Saying you are a “professional artist” means nothing relevant here. It only means that being an artist is your profession, not that you are any good at it (pic related was done by a professional artist) or that are even vaguely versed on the subject (you could design inanimate objects or logos for a living and get nowhere near human beings and clothing and still be a “professional artist”, possibly even a top quality one, while not knowing jack about fashion, which you clearly don’t) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0ba29885b6c1c3e1920f1119efa35a2cf517a24e8f104c58872f9c96b5f7ae4b.jpg )

    It turns out the original creators intended a character look the way they did and had their outfits the way they did. They don’t need to complain for it to have not been their intent (surprisingly it turns out their intent is what designed in the first place, not the creation of an unrelated third party).

    “You are literally fabricating claims of people you disagree with then claiming your fabrications are exact quotes.”

    and then you do that exact damn thing about me lmao. Like I’m crying laughing right now.

    You literally, specifically, said that “color theory” is a reason why you do not support the changing of their skin tone. That the colors do not look good any more / do not look as good as they originally were. I am not “fabricating claims”, that is exactly what you said: The darker skinned characters dont look as good in their outfit. The screenshot you provided, one was wearing neon clothes, one was wearing a black and pink dress. Therefore, you are saying those clothing items do not look good on black people.

    And no. I didn’t even use the word Asian once in my entire post. I never mentioned “removal of Asians”, practice what you preach with these “fabricating claims” accusations. They didn’t remove Asians from that game. I know they didn’t. You’re literally just lying to make your points look better.

    And here you go again, you literally know absolutely nothing about me, claim I am “fabricating claims” about you, and yet you want to make comments, and flat out false assumptions about my real life career, lmfao, hilarious. Downright childish. And really, what makes it even more hilarious, is that my current work entirely revolves around CLOTHING DESIGN, as well as both character design, illustration, and I’m constantly working in the video game industry. I haven’t touched graphic design jobs in my life. So yes. I would say I have the right to call out your “color theory” and “rules of fashion” claims absolute bullshit. Thanks for the tumblr-style super hero art though, looks like shit. Everyone has the same face. Even the Hulk.

    Fact of the matter is, your argument has no factual claim nor are you any sort of expert on the subject, while claiming you are. What it comes down to, is you just flat-out do not like the way it looks with darker skinned characters. Admit that or not if you want but it’s pretty obvious. Don’t compare something like that to actual censorship in the video game industry. The changes made to that game were nothing negative. The changes made to Fire Emblem? Fatal Frame? Bravely Default? Removing content… censoring conversations / character dialogue for the sake of “appropriateness”, these are things that need to be called out on. Quit using these issues as your stepping stone to promote blatant racism. I would love to laugh in your face as you try to explain your points directly to a person of color! You’d have to use the word “cancerous” while you show them the before and after images too! lmfao

    2: I can’t even PLAY the Japanese version on my NA 3DS.
    3: NoJ seems to be taking NoA’s side on this one, judging by the numerous official NoJ Fire Emblem videos that have suddenly been marked as Private on YouTube. Pay no attention to the features behind the curtain and all that.4: Eventually one of the more savvy Twitter complainers will call you out for modding your 3DS to play the game, and then they’ll all be singing that tune.

    I don’t even know how you function in society if this is a problem for you. You probably cringe at the notion of toilet paper or something.

    You can re-read what I told you, and then maybe you’ll understand.

    There were a lot of cases in these past months of censorship. Almost as many as the ones during the SNES era but which were more numerous because they happened over the span of more years.

    6-7 cases in the span of a few months is a lot especially after we’ve gotten over the idea that we need to censor our content for prudes and retards.

    Still failing to understand anything then? You don’t know a thing about me, only a few lines of my thoughts with no context. For all you know I could have anxiety issues or some shit, which is a perfectly valid reason to be paranoid about trivial nonsense.

Also i’m not making excuses at all, hence my vague language. You’re free to believe whatever you want, I don’t really care what a pathetic, mentally stunted child such as yourself thinks of me. If I did surely I would have killed myself by now? kek

    It’s incredibly arrogant to think yourself important enough to the life of a stranger that your words would have any bearing on them. You’re worthless. Not just in the grand scheme of things like some nihilstic nonsense either, I mean in a very literal sense. Anyone who gets their jollies from going around telling people to kill themselves is much too far from “human” to have any value to anyone but themselves

    What do you think will solve anything, exactly? All I’ve tried to do is convince people not to stand for this level of cuckery from Nintendo, and I’ve at least had some success.

    Should we just walk away from the garbage pile and let the series burn? That’s pretty much what I’ve done already, I just swing by to call people retards for paying full price for a neutered product and explain why they’re the cancer killing the industry.

    What should I do instead? Letterbomb Nintendo? Maybe hold Allison Rapp ransom for a better product?

    I’ve seen a lot of people like you who say we need to “get serious” and not “play nice” anymore, but they never end up actually doing anything. You just stand around arguing with people who basically agree with you already, but still shit on them because they’re actually still trying to fix the problem instead of enabling your tantrum.

    If you think I was actually going to “switch sides” then you lack serious reading comprehension and don’t understand figures of speech. And then it’s all downhill from there since all you got is ranty whining.

    False, the majority of the content is cut. The majority of the content from the game is when you are interacting with them. You wouldn’t know that unless you’d played the Japanese version, but that’s the actual fact.
