    You could crowdfund translations yourself. They're not gonna stop doing this shit, ever.

    I don't care much about that as long as I have the option to play the japanese version(be it now or some years later thanks to emulators), what I do care is about Japanese games being censored in Japan itself thanks to shit like what Sony is doing.

    They're only censoring(removing) the "lolicon" ones, which after seeing I'd argue the author's intent was for them to be cute (in the case of the girls who are more clothed in their child forms) or humorous (in the case of the young boys posing excessively for someone their age). You'd have to be some special kind of degenerate to "interpret [that] as sexualization of characters depicted as minors", but I guess that fits the SJW/REEtardera/Commiefornia bill.
    As for Sachika stuff, yeah that was probably fanservice, I mean it's rather blatant on the author's part. She's not really a child though, even if she is short and flat-chested.

    Also aren't they all technically underage considering they're clones who can't live past two weeks? Or is the reverse of "300 year-old loli" okay because they look like adults? It certainly explains Americans and their sexualization of teenagers as long as they have budding breasts or full asses.

    Anyways, this isn't really the hill I'll die on, as much as I love dungeon crawlers this title seems easily skippable since the combat isn't even as involved as Grimrock (with its spellcasting system) and the story can be easily experienced via a stream or youtube video. It didn't even do well in Japan, and they're the primary market for this kind of stuff.

    Daily Reminder if you don't know Japanese, you are playing the translator's version of the game.

    My Japanese sucks, but I can confirm that the second line says what rough translation says it does.

    I love how those fuckers boast that they record podcasts. I guess they spend more time on marketing than actual translation.

    The rought translation is not a bad translation. That is pretty much how anyone that is learning(knows the basic) Japanese would translate it.

    8-4 has done this over and over. When a localization is announced, I always hope it’s not done by them.

    Eh, they did fine for Fire Emblem Echoes, as well as Nier. At least for Fire Emblem's case it was much better than treehouse. I think like anything it varies, but they're not the worst out there.

    Ys IX is releasing in Japan this fall. Previously, it only had a 2019 release date. There’s also a new piece of artwork.

    The demo was pretty lame but if the rerelease is cheaper than what it currently costs in the EU eshop then I might consider picking it up for a rainy day.

    The article on famitsu mentions specifically that it's going to be a single player game and the video shows exploration without a hint of social elements. The back party members probably only offer buffs or special attacks and are not actually useable, it could be something similar to romancing saga 2 where you recruit based and class and just be blank slates.
