When Eternal Arcadia was translated to the English, they also had
to change some of the games content due to the censorship required
by the ESRB to get a "T" rating. Here is a list of some
of the things in the Japanese version "Eternal Arcadia"
that they had to change to keep it from getting a M rating here
in the states.
In the Japanese version of SoA, Gilder
would smoke in some of the battle victory scenes. Some NPC's also
smoked, such as the large weapons vendor at Sailor's Island. This
was removed, though I don't know why.
In the Japanese version of Skies, Bellena's
was showing more skin, if that is possible. :P Her clothes were
skimpier, though not absent or transparent like once believed.
Liquor is now Loqua
Here in Skies, we see people in bars getting
wasted on this "juice" called Loqua. However, in the Japanese
version, there is no Loqua. It's called Liquor, and it's no juice,
Sailor's Island's Tavern door
In Eternal Arcadia, the picture carved
into the tavern door featured a glass of Liquor. But since they
replaced Liquor with Loqua, I guess it would just match if they
got rid of this too. It changed to a chicken leg in the English
Vigoro and the cell scene
Apparently, the cell scene in the game
was toned down as not to suggest rape. In Eternal Arcadia, Vigoro
doesn't wear a shirt, or has taken it off for this scene. Also,
his little quote about being popular with the ladies was different,
and instead had something to do about sleeping with them. Don't
ask me, but you should now hate Vigoro as much as I do. ;)
