Yoko Taro and his teams at Square Enix and Platinum Games slipped a cheeky insult at the Nintendo 64 into NieR: Automata, but fans aren’t really taking it in the best stride.
In the game, android 2B has the ability to loot items found around the open world, and some of them are just junky items with little to no value whatsoever. One such item found among the rumble is called the “NIN64” and is described as “Trash that was fished up. Can be exchanged at the shop.”
Aww, how cute. But hey, this is the Internet, where video games are a serious business! Japanese fans lashed out at the cheap shot taken by Square Enix, and it got to the point where Producer Yosuke Saito confirmed that they decided to remove it. An update is being worked on that will “change the name of an item you’ve all pointed out” as well as address a few other bugs.
Ouch, it’s not that bad of a jab, you guys.
Where isthe anti-censorship crowd on this one?
This is supposed to be the part where we hear about video game designers being forced to change their original vision and artistic integrity for the sake of pleasing an overly sensitive gaming audience. Or is that only Western gamers, and do these rules only apply when Nintendo covers up naughty parts on an underage girl?
I’m so confused how this works.
NieR: Automata launches for the PlayStation 4 on March 7.
