Nintendo is Removing Gay Conversations From Fire Emblem
Nintendo is going to remove Gay/Drugging conversations from the upcoming Fire Emblem game. The company told Nintendo World Report that no such controversial dialogues are going to be a part of Fire Emblem when it releases in U.S and Europe.
In the version of the game that ships in the U.S. and Europe, there is no expression which might be considered as gay conversion or drugging that occurs between characters.
In the Japanese version of Fire Emblem: Fates, players pair two characters together and gain S-Support. It is the highest level of bond between two characters.
After you played the game for a while and have shed enough blood, sweat and tears in the battlefield, your two characters often engage in romantic relationships that end in marriage.
One of the female characters in Fire Emblem is attracted to women, due to her sexual preferences she feels that she can’t be a good warrior and is weak.
To help her overcome her issues, one of the male protagonists, without her knowing, drugs her which results in her seeing male characters as female.
When the effects of this drug wear-off, she falls in love with the same male character who drugged her, she saw him as a female but now that she knows the truth, she still feels attracted to him as a male.
This aspect of the game became controversial and Nintendo had to act. As a result, we no longer have such support conversations in the game.
