Why Fire Emblem Fates was Censored

Fire Emblem Fates is a tactical RPG that was produced by Nintendo and was released on June 25, 2015. Due to Nintendo wanting to make it more family friendly, some scenes were censored outside Japan. As a result, sexuality was toned down and drug references were removed.[1]


International censorship[]

  • The skinship/head patting minigame was removed.
  • The ability to move the camera around while the characters relax in the hot springs was removed.
  • The DLC Hoshidan Festival of Bonds and Nohrian Festival of Bonds were never released outside of Japan.
  • Soleil's side story was modified for the International release, going as far as to remove any reference to her being interested in men at all and even altering her personality of having a moé addiction into a lesbian or bisexual who only interested towards females. The changes made also resulted in her marriage options towards male characters being drastically reduced to just friends or friendzoned, the only exceptions are male Corrin and Forrest as her only male S supports that she can marry.
  • All drug references were removed.
  • Any scene where a female character makes a confession of love to another female character (when they marry) was modified for the International release. In the International version their conversations were shortened.
  • Saizo and Beruka's C support was completely replaced by ellipses. In the Japanese version they were talking about assassinating people and the effects it has on people in their profession.
  • The swimsuit outfits were removed.
  • Some characters had their S supports toned down to reduce the romance and make it platonic.
