    So I just got my hands on a PC that doesn't completely suck - capable of emulating PS2 games perfectly. As such, I'm now having some fun with stuff I missed out on, or just crave but too lazy to undust my old PS2.

    That said, I do have a peculiar and particular question: Have remuxed ISOs of any of the Xenosaga games been released?

    Basically, this is the situation: The Xenosaga games in the US were pretty heavily censored to earn that coveted JRPG-loving T-rating. Some, very stupidly censored (I cite a certain young Shion hospital scene). Has anyone ever remuxed the two ISOs - that is, the Japanese version of the game with English text and voices?

    Now, it doesn't have to have English voices - as long as the text is translated, and game untouched in terms of content, I'll be a happy camper. In short, Xenosaga Uncensored.

    Hmm, Xenosaga was heavily censored? I absolutely loved the Xenosaga series (except for 2, of course), and Xenosaga 3 may be my most favorite game of all time. I haven't heard of any such version of Xenosaga. If you find it, I would be quite interested. Xenosaga was pretty dark, so I would love even less censoring.

    Mhm. The games were pretty significantly chopped up coming stateside. At best, there's Xenosaga Episode I Reloaded, which is the uncensored version featuring the English dub track, but text is Japanese.

    If there's no such thing, then who knows. This is a place where such magic can happen right? So, yeah, who knows!

    Yep, all three episodes have been undubbed (japanese audio/english text) and uncensored.
    You'll find them quickly by google.

    I know they've been undubbed, but I was under the impression that those were just the NTSC versions with their audio files swapped. Which still means they're censored.

    The undubbers thankfully also took the time to uncensor them as well. :creep:
    Ironically the JPN version of Episode I is censored when Albedo dismembers and beheads himself with a knife.

    Hm. :3 Alright, I'll give it a spin. Thanks a bunch. If it doesn't turn out to be...erm, "kosher", then I'll bother you for a link via PM.

    Sorry if I bother you...

    Xenosaga UNDUBED roms (I,II,III) are automatically also UNCENSORED?
    Or are they just the classic american NTSC-U with the original audio file?

    Just as an FYI, you're not allowed to mention the name of sites that host ROMs, ISOs, or the like. But I would imagine it's available there and elsewhere.
