Nintendo Responds To Fan Concerns Over Fire Emblem Fates Adaptation

… because calling it a translation at this point would be wrong. Earlier this week, we wrote about the fan backlash from the recently released Fire Emblem Fates video game that was just released in the US. Fans were concerned about the state of the game as it had, in comparison to the Japanese original, a tonne of “quality” translations, complete character personality rewrites, removal of gameplay content and more.

Fire Emblem Fans Outraged Over Nintendo’s Recent Handling of Fates

Looking through some of the gamers complaints, it’s hard to deny that they believe that they have been deliberately mislead when it has come to the … Continue reading

fire-emblem-gender-politicking

The past couple of days have been a strange time to be a Fire Emblem fan. The latest game in the series, Fire Emblem Fates, was applauded by the games press for including homosexual characters without them looking too closely at whatever else is in the game. However, that applause was soon silenced when it was revealed in some way that a lesbian character would be drugged into finding the male protagonist attractive enough to marry. Only, of course, this is a gross exaggeration by the gaming press. As you can tell, the gaming press’ bias towards gender politics and not towards coherent storytelling is at play here when at roughly the same time, multiple outlets cover what looks like … Continue reading
