Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones is a Japanese tactical strategy game that was developed by Intelligent Systems for the Game Boy Advance. The game was first released in Japan by Nintendo on October 7, 2004. When it was released internationally in 2005, the gameplay content was censored to make it more family friendly by removing references to alcohol use.


International censorship[]

  • In Garcia and Dozla's C support, the two discuss what they had for breakfast and how breakfast is an important meal for a warrior. Dozla mentions he drank nothing but alcohol that morning in the Japanese version. In the international version he instead says he what he had for breakfast was... knowledge.
  • In Garcia and Dozla's support chain, they discuss that the youths in the army don't drink much alcohol in the Japanese version, while the international version has them discuss how the youths in the army don't practice with many weapons.
  • In Garcia and Dozla's B They start off with talking about what drinks they had earlier and then they start discuss how axemen and alcohol go together well, and how you meet friends in the strangest places. In the International version they are taking about how amusing it was that Garcia managed to shoot himself with a bow. They then start talking about trying magic to use magic.
  • In Garcia and Dozla's A support Garcia talks about his son and Dozla talks about L'Arachel (the princess he is guarding), and the conversation ends with them both sharing a drink. The International version ends with a very amusing but less heartfelt conversation recounting their misadventures with magic.
