For Skullgirls 2nd Encore players, this is a guide going over the general Censorship & Removals & the arguments being presented.
They want CP / 16 YO Panty Shots!
There’s no nor has there ever been any porn in the game, the closest you get is that they had hired zone at one point because of a video they made of Filia, the game does not nor ever will contain porn *Unless law & order falls apart lol*.
For those who say they removed the ability to view Filia’s panties that is a blatant lie, a buzz word / echo chamber response garnered to distract from the real issues.
Filia’s panties are still visible throughout various facets of the game (she is also still groped) (though might I add that certain territories have 16 as the age of consent, making making all this anti Filia talk even more ridiculous), most people are not complaining about Filia but rather the choice to censor & remove other content from the game.
Something everyone should consider is being in opposition to Anime, or lolis, ect, does not make you immune to becoming a pedo: https://archive.md/U23XK
What did they remove?
Examples of censorship & removal include:
Big Band’s Backstory was censored: IT WAS NOT RACIALLY MOTIVATED and I quote “My squad was on the take from the Medici Mafia. You can guess the rest.”.
(The scene in red is what the other 2 images were replaced with.)
They removed the Soviet Announcer from the “Real Soviet Damage Voice Pack” backer goal.
They removed various voice lines: Known ones include:
From “Saxploitation voice pack” backer goal:
Big Band to Squigly “You little in the middle, but you got much back.”.
From “Anime Peacock voice pack” backer goal:
Peacock to Double “I’ve seen enough Doujin to know where this is going.”.
Removed the comb from Filia’s afro animation.
Removed various pieces of art from the art book (that people paid for) some of which were completely unrelated to Filia.
Videos containing known censorship & removals:
But it is their game, they can do what they want!
People ought to know that Future Club is essentially the result of a coup against Mike Zaimont, & that much of what he is accused of is nothing more than slander & misinformation.
Why is the company doing this?
There are a few possible theories, the first I’d dare call fact.
Theory 1: They are virtue signaling for clout, notice how they made Big Band’s backstory into a racial thing when it was never racially motivated. They worded everything in a very “modern audiences” manner.
If they actually wanted to desexualize Filia they not only failed to remove sexualized art of her still in the game, but also did not redesign her or fix it by changing her to boxers (which would’ve been an easy recolor fix by changing the thighs), they ultimately changed her panties to black, Filia’s panties are still visible throughout the game / gameplay.
Theory 2: ESG or Social Credit Score / to get a higher MSCI credit.
Theory 3: On the wings of Mike Zaimont’s countersuit it could be a way to tank his product / company knowing he might win the countersuit.
