There's one cg that involves a bathing scene where they're wearing swimsuits. In the original, they're nude although not showing anything.

I thought they were wearing towels, but yeah. That's it.

Oh thats nothing big at all.

You can probably patch back in the original anyway, I'm sure.

Carpe Fulgur are well known for being a prude company. They censored anything they deemed offensive. They've also closed any discussion about censorship on their forums.

So how are they "well known for being a prude company"? Anything else on the net supporting your contention?

And as the publishers of this game, they have mod powers over this forum...so why is this thread still here?

I'll tell you what, if they really were a prude company they wouldn't have had Tear cursing all the time in Recettear.

Seems like most of the problem areses from the localization of Terra Online (example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAOD5Ag5hCQ ). CF did censored some closes of at least once race. So, they are known for censorship of their localizations at least due to that.

The question is how big this problem in this particular game?
Is it just one picture?

Does anyone here have any evidence of plot and dialogues censorship?
It's just a kind of censorship which I really detest.

From what I've found on the internets it seem like only 1 image was modified and it's easy to restore it from JP version of the game.

Where did you get this information?

Because Carpe Fulgur was created to localize Recettear, then worked on Chantelise and Fortune Summoners and is now working on Trails in the Sky SC. They've never done any other games.

As for Fortune Summoners itself:

The "censorship" you speak of (making the towels more obvious in the hot springs scene static picture) was actually handled by the original artist and with the consent of the original developer, who agreed the scene could be misunderstood in an unfortunate way by audiences outside of Japan.

So nothing disrespectful was done to the game or the developers because we have their full support on this.

Yes, pretty much that.

On one hand, it is censored, sure.

And on the other hand ... oh boy, there it starts. On the other hand there is the fact that there are countries in which the game could be banned because there are some people in control who can't get it into their heads that drawn characters aren't real people and nudity does not imply sexual debauchery and other things of this sort.

So yes, they censored the game, with the consent of the original artist who simply provided an alternate CG (and a simple change in one CG, one of the sort we got in this game, really isn't a big deal). And they changed it because whereas in Japan nudity in hot springs is normal and accepted, in most other countries it is not
And that, combined with the fact that the people who scour through games like lunatics to find anything allegedly indecent tend to be unaware of the reason why there is any nudity there and why would it ever be considered acceptable, means it is simply much less of a hassle for everyone if it is “censored”.


Much less of a hassle for everyone outside of those who make a big deal out of it for no real reason, that is.

Because seriously people, I don't like censorship for the sake of censorship but here it is justified, deal with it at least somewhat maturely.
