Whether you are for or against censorship in games is a debate for another day. Today, I think we can all agree that Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is quite censored in its NA/EU releases. That has made a few people unhappy enough to actually work on a patch that does away with the localization changes. The team of modders have already released a patch that offers up the following reverts back to the Japanese version.
- Reverted costumes back to Bikinis, also changing the menu icons back and their original names and descriptions.
- Completely redid Chapter 2 and a few other small files to return references to Gravure Modelling, this also uses the original voice files.
- Fixed any map changes relating to pictures in dungeons that were changed.
- Swapped the English files out for Japanese versions for retranslated files.
- Healing points no longer come in envelopes.
- Changed Profiles to reflect the character’s real ages and change back references to Gravure Modeling.
- Reverted any censored prerendered Cutscene files.

In this stylish RPG, make your way to the top of Tokyo’s slick showbiz industry and do battle with dark forces from another dimension. Would-be warriors can get the lowdown at our Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE gamepage!
Follow the exploits of a group of aspiring teen pop idols as they sing, dance and act their way through the limelight and into the dizzying heights of superstardom. Along the way, they’ll team up with noble warriors from the world of Fire Emblem in order to push back against an invading army of Mirages – spectre-like apparitions that threaten our world. Experience a dramatic plot full of fierce and fashionable characters who are ready to slay both on-stage and in battle!
Take centre stage and face enemies in enchanting turn-based battles. Use an array of techniques to overcome any opponent, including show-stopping Ad-lib Performances and Duo Arts, where two stars collaborate to deal out damage! If you hit an enemy with a super effective attack, you might also launch into a Session – a combo that can feature attacks from all members of your party that’s sure to bring the house down!
Battles take place in gigantic arenas where you and your opponents are the star attractions! Once the stage is set for a sensational showdown, each side takes a turn to deal out damage. When you’re victorious, you’ll gain experience, Performa and build your Stage Rank, which will allow you to learn new skills. You can also forge new weapons using Performa. The more you fight, the more powerful you’ll become.
Help your heroes reach the top by tearing up television shows or strutting their stuff on the big stage, then delve deep into the dungeons of the Idolasphere to drive back the invading Mirages. When you’re not busy saving the world – or taking it by storm – take some time out to explore the metropolis of Tokyo. Lose yourself in faithful recreations of some of the city’s most famous neighbourhoods, including Shibuya, the capital’s bustling shopping district, and Harajuku, with its super-stylish café culture.
Whether you’re poking around in shops in Tokyo or delving deep into the Idolasphere, keep up to date with your allies via Topic, a social media stream accessible through the Wii U GamePad. Exchange messages with other characters to gain fresh insights, build friendships and maybe unlock side quests! You can also use the GamePad to check out maps while you’re wandering, or get more information on party members and enemies mid-battle.
