Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, Atlus’ latest crossover RPG between Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem has received an uncensored patch to the NA and EU versions of the game.
After a particularly big round of censorship, removing or altering a huge chunk of the ecchi content on Atlus’ newest game Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, a band of modders from the GBAtemp.net forums has taken up the task to reverse the changes introduced by Nintendo and make game resemble the Japanese original. The result of their labor of love is the Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE uncensored patch, dubbed on the GBAtemp forum as Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Reincarnation.
What does the patch actually do? A multitude of things, as explained in the FAQ of the official patch thread on the GBAtemp forums:
FAQ: Q: What exactly change this? A: – Reverted costumes back to Bikini’s, 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.
Q: Do I need the Japanese version of the game to apply the patch? A: No, this patch is standalone and you only need a loadiine dump of the US or EU version of the game.
Q: Are the altered costumes that only appeared in the censored version of the game still accessible (Tsubasa and Elle bikini replacements)? A: No, at this moment is impossible to add them back alongside the others.
Q: Is the hotsprings DLC playable? A: No, that content is exclusive of the JP version and there isn’t a way to load it in the western versions.
Q: Is there a way to use my disc with the patch? A: At the moment no. The files to patch are too big for Cafiine. The only way you can use your disc for now is to make a dump with DDD.
Q: I found a bug/my game freezes/there is an error here. A: Please send us a save file and an explanation of how happened to try reproduce it or we wont be able to fix it.
Q: The patcher says I’m missing some files but I have them all. A: Verify that you are pointing correctly to the game folder (the one with the code, content and meta folders) and that you put the xdelta3.exe and patch files inside a folder called “xdelta”. example gif.
