    FUCK! is the obvious answer.

    At least one person is speaking sense in the comments on that site now. Everyone there was on board with censorship before they showed up.

    People who support censorship make me sick to my stomach.

    After Fatal Frame, Bravely Second, and Xenoblade Chronicles: Meme Edition can't say I'm remotely surprised.

    People are now going to pat themselves on the back for completely making up a controversy and getting the game "localized". Right up until Ninty removes any reference to her liking women then suddenly it'll become censorship.

    Just have to sit back and watch while two groups of idiots fuck with a beloved series from my childhood. It'd be annoying, but its just so fucking stupid its kinda funny.

    Sadly I'm not surprised by this. I really wanted to get this game.

    It's probably as much laziness as it is "correcting problematic elements". Actually properly localizing the content would require Treehouse to convey nuance after first recognising and understanding it in the original text - definitely beyond them. Not enough doge.

    Not surprised the gay conversion mischaracterisation continues, either. Too ripe an opportunity for SocJus.

    Tell that to them.

    No, not Nintendo of America. Tell it to Japan, directly.

    Well if you downgraded your 3DS from 10.3 to 9.2 then you can pick up that fan translation of IF, I'm not fully sure if it's complete or not but it's the next best thing.

    Okay so I don't know a huge amount about the character but I've heard of this scene before.

    I can see why they might want to alter the 'drugging' part of this, well, if it is as bad as it sounds anyway. If they simply rewrote it to be less far-fetched sounding I'd have been somewhat cool with it.
    Cue post on unpopular opinions thread that I'm fine with censorship that's not overly extreme.

    On the flipside, 'gay conversation', really? That's just a major part of the character and shouldn't be altered. That will pretty much change everything about the character, and that's not on. No reason to change it, as tons of people probably wouldn't even bat an eye at that. Not on board with that one at all. Boo etc. etc.

    Won't it work on PC with an emulator?

    It should but I really don't know if there is a working 3DS emulator and if there is I'm not sure if fan translated games works or not since there is occasional issues on the 3DS.

    Personally I already downgraded and have been playing some of the uncensored hacks and it's great.

    Really?

    That's strange since it's the Japanese version.
