Final Fantasy VII‘s remake is courting yet more controversy with the news that “social conditions” – likely code for ravening feminists and their cadre of white knights in the gaming media mafia – is to force “prudence” in including any scenes from the original which could potentially upset them.

The news comes by way of a Dengeki interview with none other than the game’s producer Toshinori Kitase and director Tetsuya Nomura, who explained that “current social trends necessitate prudence when it comes to reproducing the events in the original” – no doubt referring to the Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 tragedy and other such woeful censorship.

The interview went on to mention that development is now making actual progress (presumably for part one at least) as work on the battle system is now taking form, so news about the highly controversial shift to an action RPG and any new mechanics is likely to surface sometime soon.

Otherwise it seems not even the astronomical reputation of the legendary Final Fantasy VII is enough for the title to be exempt from the terrors of modern media censorship, as the game’s fate (at least concerning anything “offensive to women”) is seemingly sealed whilst the hysterical reign of peak feminism continues its tyranny of the medium of gaming.

    Overreacting my ass. They have figured out that the media and SJWs have created a climate of censorship where anything that doesn't fit their precious political ideology must be banned. DOAX3 not coming to America because of them. The Sony CEO outright saying because of "cultural differences". Japan is aware of these people now and would rather just not bother bringing the game here or if they do, they let the localization teams which also have been infested by this ideology censor the games because of a small vocal minority.

    It's not difficult. There are many strains of feminism. Some are more reasonable than others. The one that is currently dominant is anything but. You saying they're not "real" feminists does not make it so, unless you were elected head matriarch.

    They do. You are the one not getting it. Who cares about "REAL" feminists? They are not the ones with the more power or the ones you'll hear the most. The ones you'll hear the most is the stupid dude/gil from tumblr saying bullshit and saying it IS feminism. Which is one of the main problem with this, because it's an insult to feminist itself. Again, try to understand what you're talking about before saying "x is wrong"; no, it's not wrong, but even if feminism is definitely necessary and a good thing, there has been a LOT of abuses of the word since a pretty long time, and they're A WHOLE LOT more vocal than your typical average "good" feminist. hence the feminism-hate; hate the people giving your ideology a bad name just as much, if not more, than the people using a confusing word because the others call themselves that despite it being very wrong. This bullshit feminism is what is killing everything, and yes it is ""feminism"" (note the "" ) for a lot of people since they are calling themselves that.
    And since feminism and equality = good for the average hipster, this can easily be abused in order to make oher believe that some mileading bullshit is good when it isn't. Yeah, ""feminists"" and a lot of people seen as that hate large chest. Because they are "the symbol of a man's fantasies " > "The character is therefore a sexual object for the desires of men."
    While this would be laughable with true feminism, it's sadly not how the word is used most of the time and the real ones certainly not the kind of feminists that are causing games to be censored.Real feminism cares about real and serious issues (and don't sum it up to "men and women = samee pay" WITHOUT taking everything else into account; since they know that it is not an isolated issue but depends of a lot of other factors; it's not a "easy" problem at all) but the ones you'll see don't care about things like that since complicated stuff is...well...too complicated and require to REALLY know what you're talking about BOTH socially and culturally, so the average idiot will not devote his life thinking about it. It's easier to say that you're one of them without seeing how deep the matter is or caring about it.

    Yes, "feminists" have a problem with what you said and yes, "feminists" think that way. And yes, people say this but not because they are haters. Because the fucking "2010-feminist" is nothing like the original one and don't get what they are talking about, but still keep speaking about it insisting on the "I'm a feminist" part (since it was seen as a good thing in the past, for most people who don't are about looking further, that'd automatically make them one of the good guys and someone saying things that are true and good).

    Before talking about "haters" and fucking judging people yourself try to understand WHAT these "haters" hate and WHY beside a "they're just idiots lulz". Being aspie I tend to take things too literally too, but there are times when a word is linked to a context, like right now, and you can't just say that "feminists have nothing about big breasts". While it IS ultimately true it's more complicated when people are abusing your reputation for their own agenda and everyone seems ok with it.

    Some of you have been reading shit on the internet lately. Feminists don't think that way. Haters of feminism want people to think that feminists think that way.
    First, they don't want Tifa loosing breast tissue. Second, they don't have any issue with Cloud crossdressing. Look it up.

    You guys can downvote all you want but it doesn't change the fact someone "offed" a game from their list without any confirmation whatsoever about the tone of the game. It's just a guy saying they'll want to be careful, which sounds reasonable enough to me.

    Wait and see, as it is often said. We'll have time to criticise later on, if necessary.

    You do know what happens most of the time when they "say they will be careful" right?

    Hint: look at how some others are here "if there is censorship we will not ship it into the US".

    Having to say it in the first place IS suspicious in the first place, BECAUSE the game isn't openly racist or anything (in which case the claim would make sense since it would, indeed, be rather borderline nowadays). FF7 Isn't fuckinf FF7 with a nazi room, so the very idea that it is according to them important enough to talk about it there when there ISN'T anything so "terrible" (to the point it is a priority)is a pretty good proof to begin with. It's like if I told you that "we must be careful with the next Mario because it might offend the current social codes". Since Mario isn't a culprit of this in the first place, it proves that they are talking about being careful about OTHER THINGS that are considered as NORMAL by fans. If nothing is "shocking" in it to you, you don't say that you will need to take the current social currents into account. And FF7 really being guilty of this enough for this to be a problem would be a huge news and noticed overall, if it was real.

    Inb4 the Don Corneo sene is removed or EXTREMELY changed because it "may be offensive to travestites". Some people should really learn to laugh at themselves. (And they usually do it for a lot of them, it's the fucking "white and priviledged [lol] SJW that feels guilty that complains about it the most)

    Tifa will now lose a couple of cup sies and Barret will speak with an Australian accent to not offend anyone. Flower Girl will only get a slight injury, you later visit her in the hospital at the end of the game and shake hands with the One Winged Angel who say "May bad"

    Or Tifa's cup size will stand but her body size will now be increased to the same level, as in the socially acceptable "plus-size"(that is considered "plus" only by the SJW).

    The difference is that opposing ISIS is good and patriotic, while opposing these "socially concerned people" makes you a sick sexist pedophile asshole who must be placed in sex offender listings and isolated from society for life.

    ISIS will go away in a few years, its spot taken by the next "threat to the free world"
    Feminism will remain forever, taking away people's freedom for the sake of women and children

    Didn't you know? If you oppose ISIS you're a hateful Islamophobic racist bigot. They're pure and innocent freed fighters, and all those women they raped and kids they decapitated were invented by evil Western journalists.

    "word of mouth spreads and no one buys your crappy reimaginin"

    I wish people were smarter consumers because the reality is that what the majority does affects us all the same. But the FF series has such a crazy and rabid fanbase that even if it were a box full of shit the game will still sell in the millions. And considering that this remake will be a multi-part then it will sell many, many millions of copies no matter what.

    Except, we actually have no idea what they're censoring, Sankaku are just being the cynical, hatemongering troll it always is by trying to throw fuel on the fire and predicting what's going to get censored... But, yeah, I'm suspecting that it's either going to be Honeybee Inn or the Bara scene that'll get hit by the censor hammer. Or, if SE wanna promote actual equality and not just double standards, they'll censor both Honeybee AND the Bara... Or none of them and it turns out SE are actually planning to censor something entirely else, like the pseudo-romantic subplot with bikini-loli Priscilla.

    They want to make sure "FF7R: Part 1 of 50 - The bombing of Sector 1 Reactor" doesn't sell, so they can ditch the rest of the remake claiming there is no demand for it. That way, they'll be able to go back to making smartphone social card games.

    Which is all the more reason that they shouldn't change things like this. Its going to sale well regardless of how many angry feminists bitch about the game, and they aren't the ones buying the game anyway since most of the feminists that are so against the sexualization of women in games don't play games to begin, so why piss off the actual fans to please those fools?
