Sorry America, no butt for you
Nintendo has done a fantastic job supporting Fire Emblem: Awakening so far, with new DLC dropping so frequently it’s hard to make time for it all. However it was yesterday’s map release that caught the eye of NeoGAF board member YoshiRider123, who noted that a particular scene had been censored as compared to the original Japanese release.
In the original scene, the character Tharja is seen as she adjusts her swimsuit bottom. Though for the North American and European releases, the offending posterior has been covered up by a blue curtain. It seems as though the scene was a bit too racy for Nintendo’s liking, though as many have pointed out, the poor positioning of the curtain almost makes the scene more suggestive.
What do you think? Did Nintendo botch this cover-up? Are they being a bit overprotective?
