    Reminder that they censored the male character’s clothes after Japanese dumbasses complained about it.

    That’s common for Square (and most of Japan I think). Considering they made every DQ portrait.

    so they found someone as badly dressed as tidus, gave him the usual mopey outlook on life surrounded him with irritating sidekicks (pixie, moogle, priestess?) and put in a battle system that looks like a totally automated FF13

    It was bad enough it’s Mobile and Final Fantasy, they just had to link it to FFVII.

    Less censorship and more of Japanese male players not identifying with the main character. Most players don’t want to control a gayed up mc.

    It’s still “changing the developer’s vision”. Is it suddenly okay, if you’re uncomfortable with a male character design? Or can we all finally admit that “censorship” in games, in general, is all about selling a product?

    Selling a product to whom? People that complain about features because that’s their cause, or to actual players whose reactions are valuable feedback. That’s the real issue here. This game was changed to make the product more appealing to the intended audience.

    The change here was not made due to some overzealous sjw’s.

    Let me guess SJW At it again.

    Male in sexy outfit added into their ever growing concerns book.

    But i thought their wanted more diversity in games less sexy women more sexy males & still they not happy.

    I think they want to complain for the sake of it.

    This doesn’t make sense the SJWs wants diversity in games meaning less sexy women why can we have gay looking males for onces.

    Like i said eslewere diversity is alright its a free market but force diversity and with added topping of censorship is bad.

    So they got what they wanted diversity in final fantasy and more diversity in final fantasy 15 of gay looking men.

    When FF13v was 1st announce a long time ago it wasnt the same game it gonna be in September this could be my 1st boycott of a final fantasy.

    But i wont say you shouldnt buy it yourself.

    The “original vision” of the game’s developer was still changed in order to please an audience. I thought that was a bad thing? Why is it bad when you can’t rub down lolis, but it’s totally cool to change a male character design so *he* looks less like a stripper?

    Straight otaku complain about a dude’s ass making them uncomfortable, somehow the Ess Jays are at fault. My god, pure ideology, etc etc.

    Not really, because that’s applied at a later stage by a third party and theoretically easier to reverse. If the original developer changes something, then for all we know the original assets don’t exist anymore.

    If you look back through the tag for this game on this site, there’s not a single headline giving the barest mention of the fact that this game was censored, despite the fact that that sort of thing usually gets treated as breaking news around here. NicheGamer were too scurred to report on something that their fanbase wouldn’t be automatically inclined to get enraged about. Such truth, many ethics. Wew.

    “valuable feedback”??
