Breath of Fire IV is a Japanese role playing game that was developed by Capcom Development-Studio 3, and was published by Capcom. The game was released on April 27, 2000. Due to Capcom wanting to make the game more family-friendly the International release was censored, as a result sexuality and violence were toned down.


International censorship[]

  • The scene that shows Ryu accidently groping Ursula's breast was removed.
  • The scene that shows Ursula proving her womanhood to a group of sailors was cut (in the scene Ursula drops her pants to her ankles).
  • The scene that shows Ryu peeping on bathing party-members was cut.
  • Nina and Ursula bathing in a pond was cut.
  • The scene that shows Fou-Lu decapitating Emperor Soniel was modified for the International release. In the International version the scene fades to black before you see the Emperor getting decapitated.
  • References to alcoholism were removed. Stuttering is now considered a speech impediment rather than drunken talk.
