Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Takahashi on Xenoblade Chronicles X's localization changes: "I didn't mind much at all"

Even Nintendo's Japanese division's director, Genki Yokota, talked about how all divisions of Nintendo communicate when making such changes.

“When we have costumes or clothes that we have a little concern with, we share it with NoE and NoA and they’ll say, ‘No, no, that’s fine’ or ‘You’re right, that’s an issue,’” Yokota said. “If it is an issue, we’ll go back and say we’ll say, ‘We adjusted it this way, what do you think?’ There’s a lot of back and forth in that sense. Rather than compromise, it’s like we’re all aiming for the same goal, of being able to provide a good experience for everybody in all regions. And we’re aiming to have a game that has very little difference between the regions.”

So does this mean that NoE and NoA think that Pyra's outfit and boobs are okay? Or maybe they still haven't decided if they will change her.

Edit: I want to clarify that I don't mind it if they leave her how she is, I just think it's weird that Nintendo thinks her outfit is okay.

Localization is a good thing; no one should get angry that games are made to suit their audiences.

Obviously it can be frustrating to hear some dev team was forced to censor all kinds of things, but generally this is something they want to do. Not saying this game was going to do it, but when you offer big boobs and skimpy clothing on characters clearly designed to look like they're in their early teens to even pre-teens, you have to know that different parts of the world aren't going to react well. While all cultures are guilty of it, when children are sexualized it needs to be called out on it.

Her tits where disgusting. Flat is justice.

Says the one with that profile pic >.> hahah

Hey, I at least contemplated changing it before anybody realised.



Currently Playing: Divinity Original Sin II - Switch.

X sucked anyway. What happened to the story? Biggest letdown of 2015.

 

Weighting for Xeno games is 85% story.  Best combat and exploration in the history of video games but 5 minute story = crap.

 

I can't see how anyone who played Xenogears, Xenosaga, or Xenoblade Chronicles can even consider XCX to be in the same genre.

Alright fair enough.

Really hope there will be dual audio, but it doesn't look like that will be an option :/
