It has now been confirmed that Nintendo has altered Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE for the Western release of the Atlus developed RPG, as spotted at the PAX East demo that has been reported by Censored Gaming in their video, which you can check out below.

(Editor’s Take: I don’t necessarily believe changing a character’s age to suit the West is censorship, but most of these other changes seem to fall under that definition.)

To sumĀ up the video, alongside the raising of the characters’ ages, panties have been changed into spats during battle sequences. Spats were not present in the Japanese version. All of these instances corroborate with a message board post that correctly identified the title’s localised name and voice audio which was posted prior to the Nintendo Direct broadcast confirming this information. The only thing that hasn’t been confirmed yet is the absence of the Hot Springs DLC, and we will find out whether this is also correct in due course.

Furthermore, more changes were spotted in the PAX East stream. If you look at the images on the transparent walls within the gameplay screens, you will notice that many of the photos in the Twitch stream in the English version are less revealing than from the same section in the original Japanese version.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE will be releasing for Wii U in North America and Europe on June 24th.
