Upon discovery of Bravely Second’s artbook getting censored in the west, something about that just did not sit well with me. Of all the censorship I’ve seen so far regarding games in the west, this one ranks up there as one of the most troubling, barely edging out the entirety of Fire Emblem Fates‘ localization (and maybe even the censorship occurring in Bravely Second itself). What’s going on with the artbook is yet another case of a Japanese videogame getting censored outside of its home territory. The new precedent here is that it’s also the artbook getting censored.
This morning’s Nintendo Direct was all about new stuff, new stuff in already released games, and new stuff in upcoming games. Since this year is about to wrap up, everything that would’ve been shown during a Nintendo Direct this year has more or less transpired. While some games have yet to be shown again, like X and Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, this Direct had some pretty cool announcements. So hit the jump let’s check out some of them.
