    Title pretty much says it all. The US version of Xenoblade had the character creator messed with.

    Is there a way to either patch the US version into having the full creator back?

    What else if anything did they censor?

    Ehh, he has a bit of a point though. I know that's not the ONLY reason that someone would want the game uncensored, but I can guarantee that the good majority of people would want it for that reason

    How about wanting a game without the religious references removed? How about wanting to play a game where the translators didn't treat the consumers like children? They didn't even have an excuse like Capcom did with SFV because at least they wanted to keep it rated T to maximize sales. I just wanted the same game japan got 8 months prior but it looks like the only way to accomplish that now-days is just to import. Although in the end I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Monolith Soft games have been in danger of censorship since Xenogears in 1997 when square considered it briefly.

    Ok, but how many of those points apply to this specific game?

    (Actually genuinely curious, I'm like one of five people who hasn't played XCX yet)

    All of them actually. The religious bit is a reference to a few name changes NoA did before release(with the BLADE acronym and such). The funniest part is that the church is still in game.

    Huh. I will admit that knowing that that does frustrate me, I don't like it when religious references are removed from games because the localization teams think their respective countries can't handle them

    Religious references , some costumes and bad translation with bad dialogue changes. Sadly anyone who wants the true experience will have to know japanese.

    There already is a full undub avaiable, you can either download it on common places or patch it for yourself. I'll give you a link to our thread here later if you can't find it.

    It's just my opinion but I do believe this is somewhat overstated. The blade acronym has been changed so it's less unwieldy/engrish. Of the blade divisions names only two of the eight weren't changed, five of those didn't even have religious meanings, it was just so they fitted better. All the Skells/Dolls keep their religious namings and the character of L is more blatant than the Japanese version imo.

    From my perspective it seems like a certain section of people just want to be outraged or find fault with this game, some as their excuse for not purchasing it and some because they are addicted to drama (Not saying you are either of these).

    I'm against the butchering of a script for business reasons. I don't think this is the case with this game, it's localisation done to make the game accessible to a wider audience and the story content is kept intact, we actually got more on disc than the Japanese did, people forget that. I'm disappointed that all the negativity surrounding this may put people off getting the game as it can all be easily read as entire parts of the game are removed.

    Hypothetically how difficult would it be to take the text from the US game and patch it over in the Japanese version while making the few edits that got censored?

    That would be something I'm interested in.

    I was thinking of something like this. The same thing they did with the FF12 IZJS

    We haven't made any efforts to edit text when we did our undub, but I could take a look at the script format and write a little parser if you really want to do this.

    I know I am lazy not looking for it myself, but do you happen to have a full (or semi-full) list of script changes?
    I know about how they changed the Engrish BLADE that had somewhat of a meaning (if you could go through Engrish, but really, the Engrish there was shit) into a BLADE that means nothing like it. But well, the original creators could have put some more work to come up with an acronym that was either real English or Japanese, I doubt many Japanese actually got what this Engrish BLADE stood for.
    But, besides the BLADE acronym meaning, do you have a list of other changes to the script.
    I would like to know and judge myself what did they change.

    So your saying it is possible? Cause it sounds like a lot less hassle than completely translating from the ground up and instead just making the few changes in the US version where it most likely got censored. I have no idea how this all works and unfortunately my Wii U is on the latest firmware so I wont be able to provide much help, sorry.
