Nintendo removes character petting during Fire Emblem Fates localization

0

Get your pet on in Nintendogs instead

Kotaku has confirmed with Nintendo that the ability to pet your characters has been removed from the English localization of Fire Emblem Fates.

"Yes, that is the case [that petting isn't in the English version]," a Nintendo representative confirmed. "You might have heard somewhat misinterpreted or exaggerated information about the Japanese original game, but even in the Japanese original version, we have not included any features which are considered inappropriate in Japan."

Nintendo also reiterated that making changes during localization is not unusual. This news comes just a week after it was confirmed that controversial scenes Nintendo called "gay conversion" were being changed for the English release. 

Now how will I pet furry characters and make them smile, as seen below?
