“Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore” Will Be Censored Globally

A little strange but predictable news coming from Nintendo as we now know Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore will be censored everywhere. The company issued an apology on the issue via their Japanese website, which we have translated for you below. The game had already gone through a censorship controversy back when it was released on the Wii U, as the game’s presentation was a bit more risque. Specifically because of the age of the characters and the clothing some of them wore, which drew some unnecessary attention and made what is a pretty good RPG overlooked by the fact that they bumped up the character’s ages and gave them clothes that covered up more. The game will still be released in January 2020 on the Switch.

However, in the publicity of “Phantom Ibunroku #FE Encore”, it has not been announced from the beginning that the title is based on “Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE”. The game screen of the Wii U domestic version “Phantom Ibunroku #FE”, which was not included in the title, was incorrectly posted, so the content of the title could be misunderstood by the customer.

Therefore, on October 10, 2019, the game screen on the homepage was replaced, and on the 17th, we announced that the title was based on “Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE”. We recognize that the provision of information was insufficient from the beginning.
