      So the MC, Alear, is 17 years old. Localization changed text for paired endings with Alear for characters that are 17 or younger. As in Japanese, it's Romantic while in English it's platonic. But for characters who are 18 and older that marry Alear, the dialogue is romantic.
      In other words, YOU SICK FUCK!

        So there is romance but for only characters that are older? Does this apply for the MC only or for all characters?

        Under 18? No romance for you.
        I'm using male Alear for simplicity

        Hortensia: English version, she is always surrounded by friends and Alear is jealous over that she might be playing with other people. She tells him to not worry, she will always have time for him since he is her special friend.
        Japanese version, she is always surrounded by people and Alear is jealous since he wants to be her special one. She tells him to not worry since he is the only one who is special to her. Event also ends with her telling him that she loves him.

        Celine: S support is surprisingly similar, it's just later at a wake up event she tells him that he told her brother that she has a friend that will always support her while in the Japanese version she tells her brother about their relationship and her brother gave them his blessing.
        So in the English version he more or less proposed to her and she friendzoned him.

        Citrinne: In the english version he gives her a ring as a symbol of their friendship, and in the Japanese version it's a symbol of his feelings towards her.

        Framme: In the English version, stop being a fan and become my number 1 ally. In Japanese, stop being my fan and become my partner.

        I honestly don't understand why you don't just age people who are 16-17 up to 18 in this case unless it is integral to the story for some reason. Other than, obviously, wanting to shit up the game and cause some sort of controversy, instead of actually wanting to give people a proper experience.

              First babies in Fates are irrelevant to the plot
              Second, Fates' localization had a shitton of cut content, especially DLCs, them removing one of the female characters as a potential mother because she's underaged is something they totally would do

              Not true. Only the fathers, Azura, and Corn canonically get laid since they’re directly tied to their kid. The mothers are never brought up so it isn’t necessarily the case any of them had kids, especially considering Shigure refers to none of the other kids as his siblings even though that would be impossible in gameplay

      Not with Anna. At 11-years-old, you give her the ring and she says "it's too soon for us to be lovers, but can't we be partners?"
      I fully agree that "underage" romance or e-boi/shota has no inherent bearing or effect on real life whatsoever. Partaking in 100% fictional, unrealistic fantasy doesn't make people try to recreate it in real life. It doesn't even reflect the person's real life preferences.
      That's simply not how the retarded, apparent majority of people in the world feel though. Boomers still think videogames cause violence and pedophilia, and now zoomers think reading fanfiction causes violences and pedophilia.

            That was just Nintendo/Atlus being to lazy to undo their shit, not that it matters since the game bombed everywhere again and pushed the team to make SH2. Which also bombed.

            Not entirely the fault of America. Nintendo has a boner for being viewed as a family-friendly console. They are dialing back the censorship in recent years after they were lax for a half-decade.

                XB2 wasn't censored at all when it launched. They added the pantyhose option after the characters were added in Smash and Nintendo realized they were too lewd for their brand.

                It's not just XB2 they have a bunch of lewd titty games in the store that they never would have associated with in the past.

                If that's your argument for saying Xenoblade 2 wasn't censored then by that same logic Fire Emblem Engage wasn't censored either. We're talking about censorship in text here.

                Yeah, especially that it was completely rewritten in the west. Everything. Names, lore and all dialogue.

                But it was? Porn mags, the bikini armor, among other scenes
                Sure they didn’t censor models but neither did Engage

                Localizing names is not really censorship. Also, I never played it with the English dub. I know the subs are for the English dub but I know when they are inaccurate.

                Tbh sometimes this kind of thing is because the western audience (mostly amerisharts) is confused easily and might complain that the "story was too hard to follow." You have to dumb it down because there are a lot of ignorant people playing these games.

                It's the same fucking game you spergy gay. Same storyline, the same characters, same booba bunny. They toned down the "jokes" and localized a few things. The tone of the game didn't change. The content of the game is all in there. Give me examples of the main script, as in the actual plot of the game being altered. Otherwise, shut the fuck up.

                Are you talking about the scene where Tora and Hana are discussing Tora's grandpa and his reason for making her? Because while it was altered, it basically had the same meaning. You do have a point with that one thought, it was probably the most obvious one, iirc. I still think the game was pretty tame and the dialogue localization was mostly inoffensive bar your example and the dirty jokes like the bunny custom one with Hana.

                Makes sense to me since it sounds simpler to patch in english text into the jap version than patching in all the cut content and voices into the english one.

                This is categorically false. There isn't an entire scene in the game that comes close to the webm I posted. Not even the most ridiculous blade side quests. I put 500 hours into XB2, so you can try that line with someone that hasn't actually played the game and they might believe you.

                Are there alterations to the text in the game? Absolutely. Are they substantial enough to change the entire personality or flow of the story? No.

                But it's fucking retarded to censor a 17 years old getting together with another 17 years old. Especially when their age isn't even mentioned in the game, so all the players can see is that they are about the same.
                I also dislike that any non-alear character can have a relationship only with alear.
                But yes, it's clear that in the rotten minds of the developers alear is meant to be an avatar, which is why everyone else can love ONLY them. Both those who write this shit and everyone who actually like this should be interned.

                NTA, but you clearly have never actually tried to restrain or “fight” a woman. Men are ridiculously stronger than them on average, yes that includes men that are out of shape. I dont work out at all (I intend to start soon though), and I can very easily man handle my wife, who is probably stronger than the average woman in her upper body because she’s a physical therapist assistant and basically lifts people all day. Body mechanics and all that jazz, she still is more built in upper body then most women I know at least.

                We have “play wrestled” and done arm wrestling stuff before and I was surprised at how easy it is for my out of shape ass to restrain her. Granted, she has asthma and loses endurance quickly, but like I barely have to try to keep her from moving.

                You would have to be pathetically frail or morbidly obese to lose to a girl in a straight fight dude. There is a reason they teach girls to aim for the dick/throat

Why would they bother to get the Japanese VAs to rerecord lines just for the tiny percentage of people who would play the English version, with the Japanese audio, and actually understand Japanese well enough to notice the discrepancy between the translation and the Japanese script?

          TMS was Japanese audio only. But he's right, they redubbed the line where Tsubasa says her age in the western release.

          The last time Nintendo bumped up character ages they still censored the fuck out of the game anyway.

          Engage is fully multi-language though.

          But it's true. I played on Wii U and used uncensored version. They fixed many things. Along with restored ages and whole rewritten chapter. It's a shame that Switch version is butchered worldwide.

        It depends on your CPU for the most part. A friend with an old i5-4670 (I think) could play 3H without any issues - not at 60 FPS, but whatever - so if your laptop isn't ancient, it might be possible.

          That list is incomplete, he was in Three Houses' credits as localisation management, along with being localisation management on #FE. Reiko Ninomiya, Scot Ritchey, and Rich Amtower were also in the same group on both titles, so it's safe to say they're all people bent on fucking things up.
          >And Nich Maragos is a grunt, he's not part of Localization Management. There were about 20 other grunts with him localizing the game together.
          Difference is that Maragos is an actual Treehouse employee, whereas a lot of the staff listed in these credits are the contractors who aren't distinguished. Hell, Fates' credits didn't even distinguish between the grunts and management.

            Nate's last localization game was Bowser's Fury for Switch, him doing an earlier title doesn't change the fact that he's no longer part of that process, also nice schizo theory.

            Bitch who do you think I meant when I said grunt? The Treehouse employees and the contractors do the same thing job-wise, and Engage's credits show who was Localization Management and who is just NOA Localization, aka translators aka grunts.

      It's an awful precedence. Fire Emblem games have terrible stories, I do prefer when they're less bad but it's not what I look for in these games.

        Which quality do you prioritize? If a FPS with great gameplay mechanics came out, but inexplicably was censored in the form of blood splatters or NPC chatter, would the game be worse? Of course. But the game itself is still there, and it sucks that the seasoning is gone, but it's still a fantastic cut of steak.
        Fire Emblem is anal excretion on a plate in a restaurant that forgot to buy salt. Maybe the salt isn't the biggest issue, however?
        That was the point. Set your own precedent for better reasons than the lack of a basic framework written in a weekend for you to fill in the gaps with your own headcanon and focus on how the SRPG elements of the series are absolutely fucking horrible, unchallenging, and unengaging (again, no pun intended).

      No that's fine in Engage.
      A 17 year old can date an 18 year old.
      But a 17 year old can't date a 17 year old.
      A 17 year old can't date anyone younger than 18, that would be immoral, for some reason.

      No, but all minors don't have the ring on the ring finger but the middle finger.
      That could be something that has been censored if it was demanded by the west, and that will probably be in all versions.
      Don't really effect anything text wise, but they really don't want anything romantic with character under 18.

          No, it was just something that was noticed at first when all platonic S support had the ring on another finger for some reason.
          It was just a little later people saw the pattern and it was an age thing instead.
          Anna and Jean would likely never have worn the ring any way. They just hold it.

                But thank you for agreeing with me. One thing that always bothers me about censorship threads is people treating it like an ineffectual rage cage, preaching to the choir about how censorship is bad and companies need to stop doing it while simultaneously complaining that it keeps getting worse and doing nothing to project their voice beyond the thread. I don't know if there's much one can really do since everything falls back to the localizers themselves, but doing anything is better than sitting with our collective thumbs up our asses and complaining about how things never get better.

        And "friends" parts aren't there either.
        Just because the ring isn't on the ring finger doesn't mean it's not romantic. And why it's is probably so they don't need two art assets for the versions.

        True. They already made the Japanese devs alter the ACTUAL assets, then. It's not entirely the localization

          That line from Hortensia is:
          >Because if all that wasn't true, you wouldn't be so special to me.
          In the English version.
          Hortnseia S support has a different tone in English and Japanese.
          In the English version Alear is jealous she is spending time with other friends, and in the Japanese he is jealous that people are flocking around her.
          And the reason people are coming to her is in the English version it's just that she is kind and in the Japanese version she is trying to be both a better person and to look more attractive.
          They are trying to remove romance in in any way they can, so in the English version it's just a childish thing with my popular friend might not play with me anymore while in the Japanese one it's that she is getting noticed by other people and might get taken by someone else.
          So in the end, in both version Alear is special to her, but in English he is just special to her and she will make time to play with him while in the Japanese version it doesn't matter how much the other people likes her it's he's the one that is special to her.

        I mean can you really deny that censorship is an ongoing battle? People on this board will regularly fight to the teeth about the trans or gay agenda, seethe at minority inclusions and the slippery slope that has happened in the past decade, but when it comes to censorship now the narrative is "this one example isn't that bad, you're so sad for caring about this."
        Fire Emblem has a long history now of censorship. So seeing more nonsensical censorship here is annoying, and seeing people just accept it with no fight is also annoying.

          Aw yeah, Ganker gallantly fights the injustice by not buying a single game. i mean, what power does it even have? Do you really think the sad sack of poverty like this board's posters have any say on anything? Most of the console war shitposting is nothing but petty jealousy because people are too poor, plain and simple.

            I never advocated for boycotting the game. I learned a long time ago with Pokemon that even if an online community says they'll boycott, 90% of them will buy the game anyway and the game will be the biggest success in the franchise. Engage is looking to be the same.
            But we should be loud and active in spreading the message that we hate censorship and don't want to see this in our games. Believe it or not, a lot of these game companies do look at what type of attention and engagement the games are getting, and not just the sales figures. While "any publicity is good publicity" is relatively true, I guarantee Nintendo would rather have conversation surrounding Engage be about the game, and not 90% about the censorship like what happened with TMS#.

      What I don't get about these people is why do they care so much? Oh it's not a big deal? Cool. Why don't you go away then? If it's not a big deal then you shouldn't feel the need to fight over it. Or do they feel the need to defend the game against what they see as "wrongful" or "unfounded" attacks?

          Pretending to be retarded and being retarded are one and the same.
          Because if you ignore a "bait opinion" enough times it just ends up passing itself off as a real opinion. Better to just point it out and get the defensive "ummmm I was only trolling xd" than to let it quietly inch forward until it becomes "normal".

            Do you cry over changes that don’t effect the moment to moment gameplay?
            It’s just lines of dialogue
            None of the girls with cleavage windows got their outfits censored

              Yes, I agree. However, this requires people actually KNOW that a troll is a troll. Imagine this scenario. Troll says X, X being an obviously retarded troll statement. No one "bites". 10 newfags show up. Troll says X. No one "bites". 20 newfags show up. Troll says X. No one "bites". 70 newfags show up. Troll says X. No one "bites".
              Then one day, 100 newfags say "this board has always believed X, if you don't agree with X you're a newfag" because it was never contested. And now suddenly you're outnumbered and they are the "majority".
              It's important to point out, from time to time, that stupid things are stupid, and why they are so. Otherwise everything is just "obvious" until it's not.

      Three Hopes was the musou title. Engage is a standard mainline Fire Emblem title like Three Houses was. Reviews seem to say it will be a little more gameplay/combat focused, and less focus on the social elements compared to TH. But if you enjoyed TH, you will probably enjoy Engage.

    Reminder that this FE is made using Unity making it the most mod friendly game in the franchise. A patch to fix the localization isn't hard to do since the censorship isn't at the level of Fate and only really effects less then half the casts S-ranks, S-Rank Wake Up's and Endings all of which aren't very long.

    If someone really wanted too they could make a patch in less then a month, maybe two months tops since most of that time is just retranslating stuff.

        >Nobody is going to do it though and the game will be forever fucked
        FE has a very active modding community. I think that there were people working on an accurate translation patch for Fates within the year.

        That patch is unfinished and fell through really hard. To be fair Fate needed 3 full three games of script retranslation compared too Engage which need anywhere as much work to fix and is way easier too do. The issue is that I don't see anyone doing it even though it's a pretty easy job this time around

        Also pic is the only actives Fates retranslation and the guy is adding a bunch of OC shit and already said he's changing the dialogue to remove all the "problematic" stuff. Fates is just a fucking cursed game

On that note, I wouldn't be shocked to find out that the reason why Engage doesn't have paired endings for non-Alear support pairs is because nips don't like feeling "cucked" by characters choosing someone other than themselves [even though the player didn't pursue/choose them directly]. The same shit happened in the Story of Seasons series when they removed NPC pairings so none of the marriage-aged townsfolk would ever hook up if not with (You).

        What is the harm being done by having the character profess their love at the end of the game? I could understand if getting an S support actually gave a whole dating quest line or something, or if they started wearing a negligee in the sleep wake-up scene and wanted to avoid sexualization of minors. But what is the harm in Alear (THE PLAYER SELF INSERT OMG) asking Framme to be more than a fan, but their partner as well.
        Are we really thinking that some 25+ NEET virgin is going to turn into a pedophile because they interpreted this scene as too lewd because it didn't explicitly mention friendship?
        It's not just the fact that it's censored, it's the fact that what is being censored is completely harmless and worthless. It's honestly insulting for them to insinuate "this is problematic for an older audience to see"

          I assume the logic is that Nintendo doesn't want their game to romanticize the act of giving an 11-year-old girl a promise ring and that girl explicitly acknowledging your expectation to have sex with her with she's old enough.
          I definitely think it's retarded that the physically and mentally 17yo protagonist can't explicitly date a fellow 17yo character, but at least for the characters 14 and under, I understand the rationale.
          The localization team just decided to let age of consent laws determine what's "old enough" instead of common sense, because that's naturally what a business does.

            i get what you're saying and i agree that the logic of getting engaged with a minor is the reason why it's changed. i just think the concept of "it's problematic because the player is likely over 17" is pants on head retarded. i think there is a 0% chance of some 25 year old NEET playing this game and saying, "you know what, maybe I AM a pedo" because the engagement scene implies consummation of the marriage.

              Not with Anna. At 11-years-old, you give her the ring and she says "it's too soon for us to be lovers, but can't we be partners?"
              I fully agree that "underage" romance or e-boi/shota has no inherent bearing or effect on real life whatsoever. Partaking in 100% fictional, unrealistic fantasy doesn't make people try to recreate it in real life. It doesn't even reflect the person's real life preferences.
              That's simply not how the retarded, apparent majority of people in the world feel though. Boomers still think videogames cause violence and pedophilia, and now zoomers think reading fanfiction causes violences and pedophilia.

        Are you kidding? As an oldfag the reason I like Three Houses as much as I do is because it's does so much of its own thing. It reminded me of how the games used to be wildly different depending on the entry. It wasn't until the GBA era where things started getting stale. As long as the individual entries execute their ideas well I'm all for them being different. Engage's whole premise is like Awakening but somehow worse and the execution feels cheap and phoned in.

        NTA but the moment the time skip trailer was released and Eye Patch Dimitri goes "Kill every last one of them!" the mood around 3H did a total 180 on here.

      >but it's nothing like the indiference and hatred the entire community seems to feel towards engage
      You can't attribute shit posters to an entire community, and you can't be indifferent to something and hate it at the same time, dumbass.

      LMAO no, everyone was calling it a shitty HarryPotter/Persona ripof and the classic Fire Emblem died at Awakening.
      It wasn't until the War trailer that some interest was born, but everyone wanted to skip the Academy Phase as fast as possible.

      I can't say I remember that. I wasn't excited at all and was fully ready to hate Three Houses since the series had been nothing but disappointing since FE10. But then I actually played 3H and it actually felt like the devs wanted to make something good. The setting was actually fleshed out, characters were acting like people with real grounding in the setting, and there was enough intrigue to keep me reading every bit of dialogue presented.
      I went into Engage expecting to hate it. After about ten hours I kind of hate it. It takes the worst aspects of Awakening and Fates writing and gels it into Nami Komuro's masterwork of putrid shit that disrespects the franchise while pretending to celebrate it. The gameplay is also tedious which isn't a good thing since that's all there is. I'm certainly not inflicting the dialogue on myself anymore after the first ten lame groaner scenes.

    Eh I'll just wait for the spring or summer sale, or maybe an online retailer will have a surprise discount in a month. FE goes on sale faster than the big dawg Nintendo franchises anyway.

    I don't care about fire emblem but the fact nintendo hasn't learned their lesson from previous games is unreal. Why can't we just have a universal good version of a game. I don't need someone else telling me what I can and can't consume for media

      The consoomers are literally the ones defending the censorship, and you somehow did enough mental gymanstics to both side with them and pretend to be above them at the same time. Impressive.

    As a game Engage is way better than 3H. If you think 3H had good writing and world building I suggest reading an actual book instead of consuming garbage made for coomer 14 year olds and failed men.

    The class system is so needlessly convoluted. I swear, everything about this game feels shoddy and worse than previous entries. They could have just ported the Fates class system over 1:1 and it would have been better than the fucking Awakening system where reclassing resets the unit to level 1. The proficiency requirements make it seem like it's supposed to be on a 3H/FE4 system where promotion doesn't reset levels and you should be able to swap around as you please but it's using the Awakening system so I'm hesitant to early promote even though you can reset levels down to 1/1 since Awakening drastically cut into earned EXP for that unit as soon as they promoted. So many of the problems I have with this game come down to it being simple to the point of being boring and needlessly convoluted at the same time.

    considering everyone in the thread just talks about the romance I take the gameplay and story are just a boring slop?

      Reviews all seem to agree that Gameplay is good and a step up from TH, story and characters are lackluster and a step down from TH. I'll judge the characters for myself, but I'm setting expectations low for the story to just be "good versus evil dragon bad." like the usual.

    I was stupid and decided I wanted a physical copy. Amazon says I have over night shipping but it still won't arrive until the 24th. What are the chances it ships early on release date?

      mine says the same thing the 24th. I wonder if Amazon is fucking up somehow because when you go to preorder it says release day shipping and shows the 20th

      amazon has also fucked up for me. This has almost never happened with release day shipping but at the same time, amazon can barely even do prime 2 day shipping nowadays.

      Where are you getting this misconception? Every man in the game is now willing to hop on MAlear's cock.
