The upcoming enhanced port of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE for Nintendo Switch will reportedly be based on the Western release of the original Wii U game, meaning players worldwide (yes, that includes Japan) will play only with content that was in the localized English release.

More specifically, this means Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore will be “censored” and without the “racy” content of the original Japanese version: swimsuit costumes for playable characters via “hot springs” DLC, “suggestive” clothing for characters like Tsubasa, visible underwear for some female characters, and more.

This information was found via the official Japanese website for the game and thanks to shrewd Twitter users like JPUncut:



Aside from visible changes to content, there were also contextual changes made in the original English release on Wii U, like the aging up of characters from 17 to 18.

It isn’t known if these changes will be carried over to the international release of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore, too.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is an enhanced port of Tokyo Mirage Sessions for Wii U with new content included — although apart from a new song, “new story elements,” and additional characters available in battle, not much else is known about the changes coming to the game.

Originally released in 2016, the title combines the universe of Fire Emblem with gameplay from the Shin Megami Tensei series.

It sees main character Itsuki Aoi in a version of modern-day Tokyo who, along with his friends, works at a talent agency alongside friendly “Mirages” based off popular Fire Emblem characters, like Chrom, Tharja, Caeda, and more.

Together, they work to solve the mystery behind a round of attacks against Tokyo civilians carried out by malevolent Mirages.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore releases worldwide for Nintendo Switch on January 17th, 2020 and can be pre-ordered now on the Nintendo eShop.

    The conclusion of this article is wholly flawed. The posting of an image on a Japanese website in no way, shape or form is proof that the entire game is based on the Western release. There are countless explanations other than that. Some random nerd on Twitter isn’t the deciding factor in what Nintendo is doing for the game. I can’t believe this is even an article.

    if I needed even more reasons to not get the game XD Seriously this the teaser Trailer Raised my hopes then the actual trailer came and it dashed them completely and utterly. This isn’t even FE X Persona it’s FE x Persona Danceing All Night -_- I wanted FExSMT midevail war fare with gray morality meets a Dark cyberpunk gothic war of clashing ideals not Jpop idols and now they’er using the censored version of the game! I have no reason to buy this garbage!
