E3 2017: Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Will Have Western Localizers Frothing At The Mouth
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
(Last Updated On: June 13, 2017)

The full story trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was revealed during the Nintendo Direct that outlined Nintendo’s upcoming holiday line-up for the Nintendo Switch. The game’s trailer focused on the two main characters and their journey to Elysium.

Rex manages to get his hands on a blade and must travel to Elysium. He joins up with a busty companion and must face off against a number of obstacles and enemies along the way. You can check out the trailer below.

Rex attempts to get the Aegis back to Elysium. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is scheduled to launch in late fall of 2017 this year. It’s the JRPG experience that Nintendo Switch fans have likely been waiting for.

It features active time turn-based battles, lots of cinematic sequences, and the typical large-scale, open-world adventure that the Xenoblade series has become renown for.

Of course, the real noteworthy news here is that Monolith has decided to focus on character designs that have always been popular and common place in Japan. This means female characters showing plenty of skin and having large chests.

I’m sure the Western localizers had a conniption over the designs of the female characters because a lot of Nintendo’s Western localizers have been spending a lot of time censoring their female characters and other content in games like Fire Emblem: Fates with the head-patting, and Tokyo Mirage: Sessions by throwing the characters on more clothes and removing the female pelvic bones. There was also the complete removal of the breast slider in the custom character maker in Xenoblade Chronicles X.

It would be amazing if Xenoblade Chronicles 2 managed to make the leap onto the Nintendo Switch in the West unmolested by the localizers, but that’s a tall order.

We’ll see how the game turns out when it launches this fall exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.

    Western localizers fucked the entire first lesbian romance in Fire Emblem. They are simply incompetent.

  • Waifu Engineering

    Anyone else bothered by how they all sound like 30-40 year old Brits and Scotsmen? I mean yeah I like the Scottish accent but come on this is a J R P G and I’d rather have 30-40 year old Japanese voice actors (who sound like they’re 15).

    • Disqusted

      “30-40 year old Brits and Scotsmen”? Sounds like the Forbidden Siren English dub.

  • Lionhart16

    Isn’t the artist of Xeno 2 Masatsugu Saito, who I’m pretty certain also uses the name “Saitom” for other works?

    Do you think that SJWs will throw a tandrum over that as well if it’s who I think it is?

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Can’t wait to see all the censorship! /s

  • Maybe gamers and fans of this franchise should use this early opportunity to unite, speak out against, attack and put some significant pressure on Nintendo USA and Treehouse before the localization is completed.

    Will it work? Well, we won’t know until people actually put in the effort to try instead of just writing and Tweeting their anger AFTER the censorship has happened.

    It’s the only way you’ll have a chance of stopping the censorship. If you just sit back on the moral high horse and do nothing then then game is 100% guaranteed to be censored.

    • DizzyGear

      We tried that with the games before they came out when it was apparent they were censored from prerelease footage like TMS but Nintendo USA/EU does not give a fuck besides pandering to NeoGAF and its ilk thinking that’s their core audience while Nintendo of Japan is completely fucking clueless when it comes to the west.

    • Alistair

      Also we find out that censored girls 1 was censored by NISA before it was released it was ages before it got released and steam version of censored girls 2 is not out yet still a long time away.

      NISA says there is a small glimmer of hope that criminal girls 2 get a chance of uncensored for steam.

    • Paradox Reign

      Let’s be real, Jim. No one will say a word and people will eat up this censorship because “they don’t care”. This is what people told me when I said that I don’t buy the first game.

      “Welp, guess you will miss one great game then!”
      “It’s just a small change, I think you overacting!”
      “Nobody will miss you, but you will miss all the cool action!”
      “Later whiner!”

      Yeah, it is just the same as with Fire Emblem Fate, Fire Emblem x Shin Megami Tensei or Xenoblade Chronical X.

      • Just doing my part in making people aware. Maybe one day the censorship-accepting spastics will change their minds.

        • Paradox Reign

          I really hope so.

      The first thing I thought of when they that half second scene.

      Sadly, it was for these idiots too.

    • Love all the Hispanics coming out and telling her to GTFO. Ha!

      • Bitterbear

        Also notice how woke whites are very quiet on that feed.

      • Thing is that we most Mexicans don’t care about stereotypes, we found it cool and hilarious, we have worse things to get worried rather than be perpetually offended at stupid things like cultural appropriation or whatever shit SJW comes with it. I had great laughs as a kid seeing these great non political correct toons: https://youtu.be/mjze2-_Pp3Y

        I found irritating how the US, UK, Australia, Canada and certain other countries have drank the Kool Aid of the trash that is PC culture, 3rd wave feminism and SJW bullshit.

        • Same here.

          I think most races are tired of rich trust-fund slacktivists speaking on their behalf and getting offended for them. Native Americans have been fighting hard for better representation in mass media and every time they get any sort of media spotlight SJWs are there to yell “Cultural appropriation!”

          The term doesn’t even make sense because these same idiot SJWs are constantly talking about spreading multiculturalism. They’re either too stupid to realize they’re spouting an oxymoron, or they’re all schizophrenic.

          I think my Mexican friend said Mexico City is particularly full of SJW bullshit.

          Same friend complained about how countries like Australia make a big point of using sour cream in their “Mexico-themed” food, when Mexicans don’t really eat it themselves. I think that says a lot about how full of shit SJW countries are.

        • Bitterbear

          The best part was when woke people working in media in America found out that Memin Pinguin existed, and demanded the iconic character be erased from existence but instead Mexicans doubled-down on the exposure.

  • Bitterbear

    Workers at Nintendo of America’s Treehouse when they realize they’re gonna work extra hours butchering Lolcalizing this game:

    Wanna bet Nick Maragos is gonna be like I can finally afford to buy meat! once he starts working on this game.

  • Paradox Reign

    I wonder, if this one gets censored like the first part, can you still get the uncensored asian version with english text? I mean, the Switch is region free, after all. OMG, that would be amazing.

  • Vrenna

    Women have tits, and some have it big.
    Deal with it world.

    • VersVlees

      No big titties hurt my feefees, is meesoggyknees and think of the children. Therefore the girls in this game must be covered by cyber burkas. NO SEXY TIMES ALLOWED

      but seriously I would be hyped for this game only to be disappointed because we all know this game is going to get butchered one way or another when it comes to the West. At least the Switch is region free so good times if you can read moon runes.

      even 12 years old chinese kid can have impressive boobs! I had two of them as classmates!
