There's multiple people claiming that Zanki Zero was censored far beyond what is mentioned / a bilingual reviewer went over this as well.

 

There is much more censored at that point CGs are removed or edited, complete Scenes are removed, Sexual Jokes are removed, Gay Jokes are removed, Jokes about the Sachikas artificial limbs are removed and any scenes which contains violence against the children or were harmful (in a non-sexual but phsyical way) against them ARE REMOVED

 

This has also not been refuted by Spike Chunsoft.

 

Do not buy Zanki Zero. Do not support censorship, and more importantly not just censorship, but developers actually lying about things to cover it up.

So far I've only seen one person in the Gematsu article comments claim that there's more changes, and even then another person there claims he's lying. Who else have you seen claim there's more changes? Have any of them actually posted evidence of the changes?

I didn't mind a little panty censorship, though most would guess I do love my panty shots in games, if that's what they intended. Changing the story though and dialogue is Fire Emblem Fates or My Heart Has Wings garbage censorship. I don't believe in censorship period, obviously with me raving about 18+ patches, but don't mess up the stories or characters. I have this game and wanted to play it badly, but it's sad to hear about this. Also some of the translation looks a bit rough from the examples I've seen.

Surprisingly it hasn't been review bombed on Steam yet. 90% positive, very few negative reviews. I've only seen a couple that bombed it for censorship.

People could always try the free demo that lets you carry over into the main game.

I tried it. Seems cool. Not $60 cool, but I'll get it when it's a little cheaper.

I was interested in Zanki Zero until I saw that it is yet another dungeon crawler in the gameplay trailer.

I’m super interested in Zanki Zero in every way except the actual gameplay. I don’t think I’ll like that all, unfortunately.

Zanki Zero has an easy mode where you can put in zero effort in the DRPG stuff and focus on the story

What sucks about this is that after watching a few trailers I was interested in picking it up, then I read about the censorship in detail & it's just kills any reason to pick this up... discounted or not.

If you like the DRPG elements, Dungeon Travelers 2, Mary Skelter, Labyrinth of Refrain, and Stranger of Sword City Revisited are all good.

 

If you like the story, it's by the same people that made Danganronpa. So the Danganronpa and Zero Escape series would probably scratch the same itches.

Demon Gaze is also a very good dRPG.

Idea Factory International made new Neptunia Rebirth DLC. Even if you've been keeping up it's another $32 for all of it.

Just noticed Psikyo Collection Vol. 3 is up for pre-order on Play-Asia. Used coupon code GEMATSU for $3 off. The code MYPSVITA should still work too for $3 off your order. Went with the standard edition but I must admit the Limited Edition is rather tempting in more ways than one. ; )

Sooooo....why not just get the Asian-English version of Zanki Zero if the censorship bothers you?  :-k

I actually am interested in the this, possibly.

Was it confirmed / deconfirmed that the asia english ver. is butchered too, or no?

Sounds good and also sounds expensive. I'll likely do what I should have done and wait a year after released and buy it then hopefully with better games out. Messed up getting the PS4 a bit too early.

Supports … physical media


While I’m somewhat surprised about this, I hope it adds a little weight to the rumor of extended backwards compatibility with PS1-3.

There are virtually zero 8K TVs in homes today, and it takes dual $1,000 GPUs to pull off 8K at 60 FPS in modern games. Why not save it for the inevitable "pro" rev in 4-5 years? Maybe it's capable of outputting an 8K signal, but we won't actually be playing games at 8K.

I wasn't sure if it would have backwards compatibility. But I don't think anyone was expecting it to release this year.

Don't worry. There is no reality where we're playing 8K games on this thing. Proper 4k 60 still takes an incredibly expensive gaming PC.

You can't handle 4k60 with anything nowadays unless your processor is top of the line, too.

I have an i7 6700k OC @ 4.4 ghz, 64 GB DDR4 @ 2400, an m.2 SSD, and an RTX 2080 TI. I can't run FFXIV ..or a lot of games stable at 60 FPS without tons of setting tweaks

 

It'll likely be 8k checkerboard nonsense.

Could the physical media be the SSD? Selling games on that instead of discs? I would rather have full backwards compatibility (ps1-ps4) than 8k and VR because the old consoles are dying.

Nope, definitely not happening. Not unless you want to pay $100+ for each game. Plus resource wise when it comes to manufacturing them likely wouldn't be very sustainable. We already have issues with memory due to all these 'disposable' devices built with planned obsolescence in mind coupled with our shit ability to recycle.

 

Also backwards compatibility with older systems (1-3) that use a different architecture either requires them to build a proper emulator or to include even more hardware into the system, which won't happen. Good luck getting them to make a proper emulator because they're so incredibly fearful of pirates. They'll continue to only do it on a game by game basis like they have been until now more than likely until someone internally kicks them in the ass.
