One post on the Steam forum page of moe-girl card-battler Eternal Destiny caused a lot of discussion last week. The game is being produced by Degica games for the West and the company made a choice to alter a few of the images. The post to be addressed was titled “how much censored is this thing?”.
This caused fans of the company and the game to ask “why” and request that the company rethink their decision. In the past when changes such as these have been revealed companies go silent. Degica seemed to go back to the drawing board.
Degica Games has announced that they will be implementing a “Infinita Card Mode”. This will give players the choice to either play the game with altered or unaltered images. They have also posted this to the fans:
We at Degica Games are dedicated to bringing to gamers the experiences that would otherwise not make it to the West. To do this, we evaluate game after game from Japan, doing our best to find the gems that never escaped to the outside world.
One of those gems we uncovered, was Office 5656’s Vita card battler Infinita Strada, which we and Office 5656 are now updating to give everyone, no matter where they live, a new and improved version for PC on Steam as Eternal Destiny.
But we made a slight misstep. We made some changes, and it turns out that we weren’t delivering the experience that our fans wanted. We received a lot of feedback. We took the time to read it all and came up with a plan of action.
And that plan of action is the newly implemented Infinita Card Mode.
Every player now will have the choice between playing with the new altered cards, or, if they wish, go into the menu and switch the Card Type from Eternal to Infinita to get the original versions of every card.
The company then thanks the fans for the feedback. Here is an example of the changes that the player has a choice of:
Is this the proper way to handle these situations? Let us know in the comments below.
Eternal Destiny will release on PC on April 21.
