The dialogue of at least one scene in Fire Emblem Awakening is censored in the European version of the game as a GoNintendo reader found out. This makes one wonder how much more dialogue has been modified and censored in the game. 8-4, who did the original translation of the american version, replied via twitter that they aren’t responsible for those changes, which means Nintendo of Europe felt the need to tone down at least one dialogue in the game:

For a screenshot comparison of the changes follow this link. The only thing left to say is that this is very unfortunate and we as fans can only hope that this is the only thing that changed.

UPDATE: Even in-game art has been censored: source

This week’s bad publishing decisions

Let’s take a look back at everything that went wrong with video game publishing this past week:

  • Deadly Premonition (digital) has been delayed from April, 26th to May, 1st.
  • The European version of Black Rock Shooter (digital-only) had been delayed only to be released one day later
  • No localized Tales of Vesperia for the PS3
  • Europe will be the only region in the world without a Project X Zone Special Edition
  • NIS America will publish Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers in Europe, alas without the Japanese audio
  • The German Soul Sacrifice demo requires a Playstation Plus membership

Demon Summoner: Soul Hackers coming to Europe

NIS America confirmed that they will publish and release SMT Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, published by Atlus in the U.S., later this year in Europe. This is the second Atlus-title after Etrian Odyssey IV that will be published by NIS America in Europe as part of their new strategic cooperation.

The only sad part about this otherwise happy news is, that it’s very unlikely for the European version to feature the original Japanese audio, since the U.S. version featured only an English dub.
