Star Ocean 5 Censorship

Star Ocean 5 Censorship

Earlier today there was a post in Neogaf about a Interview with few key members working on Star Ocean 5. To summarize what they said they felt that one of their characters outfit was too revealing so they decided to censorship it to please the western audience (Were probably afraid of backslash of the SJW & Anita Sarkasian). You can see difference between the old & new pictures of the characters pants here.

The mistake that the developers did was that they decided to censor both Western and Japanese versions of the game and this caused much negative reactions among fans towards the Western people. You can read more about their reactions in here http://blog.esuteru.com/archives/8542569.html

This wasn´t the first thing that happened in last 24h in terms of censorship, there was a post in OverWatch forums, which caused another censorship case. I´m not too happy about this how vocal minority are able to dictate for thousands of other people and ruin their gaming experience, even these might be somewhat minor things for many people. Its not healthy sign however, when developers are able to be pushed by SJW or other types of induviduals who get offended too easily about stuff.

I´m hoping that the developers will come to their senses and atleast modify their Japanese version to the reverted form (Kinda what they did with Xenoblade Chronicles). As always make sure to follow us on Facebook & Twitter for more gaming news & videos here at MiraiScope.
