Might as well
In places in Europe like Italy that gesture can literally mean Fuck You. It makes sense that Nintendo would therefore remove the gesture in such a family-focused franchise.
Yep, that's for sure the best way to deal with women who show too much skin or something that's potentially offensive.
People will always find reasons to get offended at anything they can nowadays.
Al Bundy from Married with Children showed what would become the reality years later:
— Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —
Then everything that's possibly offensive will become censored because it's insulting to someone, somewhere.
Let's get an Italian's approach to this or a British person giving a backwards peace and ask, 'Does it offend you if you just dropped to fifth place from first place and saw squidgirl giving you the equivalent of 'fuck you' with gestures?'
Plus, Nintendo likes to shit on people. Apparently, in MK8 there's someone cursing, but it's heavily covered and you need tools to rip the audio and clean it up.
I mean they might as well have had her flipping off the camera, because in that part of the world, that's what it looks like. Yes sadly, in such a globalized world where everyone can play the same game together, if they want their games to truly remain accessible to everyone, censorship like this will understandably happen.
In some regions, that action is considered offensive, similarly to how flipping people off is considered offensive. In Japan, I think it isn't offensive and that's why it was put in the game.
Had they known ahead of time, she wouldn't have had that animation.
So, I'd say the change is pretty harmless.
and yet abominations like geordie shore and the kardashians is still allowed to continue.
Oh I remember this pose, in Super Mario RPG for the SNES Bowser had that same pose as the squid girl as a victory pose and it also got removed from games outside of japan because it means "up yours" or something like that
they're doing it wrong than you have to grab and hold your elbow 1st and than do it.
...I don't see the problem. Moving on.
If this was the worst type of censorship we could suffer, I'd be a happy gamer. This is very similar in meaning to the middle finger here, so I'm surprised it got into the first run of the game at all. Cultural differences...
So... Why isn't this on the front page yet?
Because a small, minor animation change isn't anywhere close to newsworthy.
Umm is it me or am I not seeing the problem. What is offensive about this?
because it means "fuck you" and "up yours".
Are people really complaining that Nintendo removed a gesture that literally means "fuck you / up yours" in half the world from a children's video game?
no it doesn't this does
the gesture they removed is just a fist pump. DEY STUPID
In America its super mild, someone might do the hand on the bicep while lifting the other hand here but its rare and not really well known as a rude gesture, but in certain parts of the world its well known and akin to giving someone the finger.
Pretty much. Similar to that petting minigame in Fire Emblem Fates.
so the same thing just from behind? i dont know what you are trying to prove here.
