Censorship in the New DLC For Fire Emblem in North America

Today gamers gained access to a brand new DLC map for Fire Emblem: Awakening for the Nintendo 3DS. The new DLC is called Summer Scramble. But there is a little something missing from the versions we here in North America got and what players in Europe got versus what Fire Emblem players received in Japan. It turns out that our versions here in North America and in Europe were censored. Upon first hearing about this, I had to question what was so bad in Japan’s version of the DLC that it had to be censored for us. Turns out folks, that it was just Tharja’s butt. You heard me right, a shot of Tharja’s rear end. I don’t see the big deal, seeing as how there was really no nudity, she is wearing underwear.

In the Japanese DLC, you see her butt in plain view, but it is in fact cover by underwear. And in the North American and European versions, you will see a curtain ever so delicately covering the image of her underwear-laden rear end. The funniest thing of all is that fact that all the other shots of the other female characters in their swimsuits were left unchanged. So why Tharja’s butt? What made her butt different than those other females’ butts? Both were cover by some form of clothing. I myself hardly see the difference between underwear and swimsuit bottoms. For whatever reason though, Nintendo felt it appropriate that they shelter us from the shot of Tharja’s butt. In the end, it’s actually pretty funny. But you just have to wonder why Nintendo felt the need to censor something so minuscule?
