The Ass Nintendo Doesn't Want You To See

Illustration for article titled The Ass Nintendo Doesnt Want You To See

There's new Fire Emblem DLC out today. The Summer Scramble pack. It adds a beach map to the game as well as "many conversations between the parent characters who normally do not support each other in the main game". Yet it also takes one thing away.

When the pack was released in Japan, it featured splash images of several characters, both male and female, in swimsuits. One of these characters, the bikini-clad Tharja - a character's ass Nintendo has had no qualms showing off in statue form - had her back turned to the "camera", her fingers gripping the swimsuit in let's say a suggestive fashion.

For the North American release, however, that image has been edited, a piece of material hovering perfectly over the area in question.

Does it help? I don't think so! Covering the area only makes it more suggestive. As in, suggesting there's no swimsuit under there at all.

This isn't the first time 3DS art has been edited, and given Nintendo of America's bizarrely puritan slant - pointlessly at odds with the game's older target market - it probably won't be the last, either.
