U nesretnom zavijanju dobrim vijestima da Utawarerumono: Maska obmane je krenuo prema Steamu, također je otkriveno kroz malo pretjerivanja od korisnika foruma da će se igra temeljiti na cenzuriranom mjestu PS4 verzija naslova.
Parna korisnika Shylaar napravio nit Siječanj 6th, 2020 asking if the Steam version of the game would be uncensored like the original Japanese release or if it would be based on the Western console port that censored a CG sequence? Robert from DMM Games replied that the game would be based on the censored console port, writing…
“The English version is based on the previous American release, so yes, a certain spankee’s butt is clothed. We respect the localization, development, and publishing teams for the console versions, and the reasons for the decision, and we don’t want to revisit it now.
“P.S. I think this thread is pushing the bounds of civility; please be polite. Thank you to everyone who exercised restraint discussing this controversial issue. I’m going to close this thread with the answer to the original question.”
As is typical when the topic of censorship arises, there were some who defended it, others who stated that it was unnecessary, and some who claimed that it was negligible in the grand scheme of things and that it’s important to support the developers in order to get more releases.
A few fired back that supporting censored releases means that more games coming down the pipeline will likely be censored and that once it starts, it doesn’t stop, which is true.
But you’re probably asking “what was censored and why?” Well, it was a CG sequence of a young girl getting her bare bottom spanked by her caretaker. The scene was non-sexual. You can see it below.
The censored version of the scene puts her on underwear and removes the caretaker’s hand, which you can see below, courtesy of cenzurirani igranje.
Povratak 18. siječnja 2017, Dualshockers had reported that then publisher Atlus had originally censored the scene because they claimed it was due to regional regulations regarding physical abuse of minors. Atlus explained…
„Kratka napomena o sadržaju: Iako se Atlus zalaže za dovođenje igara koje su što vjernije izvornim oblicima, u slučaju Mask of prevare scena je trebala urediti mali sadržaj kako bi bio u skladu s različitim regionalnim propisima o prikaz tjelesne discipline prema maloljetnicima. S Aquaplusom smo radili na tome da opseg izmjena bude na apsolutnom minimumu, i oboje se slažemo da promjena izvršena na sceni u igri i dalje prenosi svoj puni smisao bez naleta na probleme. "
The most obvious question most people asked is “Why not restrict that scene for regions where it’s not allowed?” It’s a good question. Steam does allow for region-specific releases or blocks. It’s completely up to the publisher’s discretion.
DMM Games didn’t respond to any of those queries and instead rolled out the boilerplate response, likely meaning that they have no plans on releasing the uncensored version of the game on Steam for PC igračima.
Nažalost, to znači da će moderi možda morati vratiti izvorni CG slijed za ljude koji žele nerevidiranu verziju scene.
Utawarerumono: Maska obmane će se objaviti Siječanj 23rd, 2020 krajem mjeseca na dan Parna trgovine, zajedno s Utawarerumono: Maska istine, DMM Games također planira izdati Utawarerumono: uvod u oborene i na PC-u.
