Maybe you have already noticed it on social networks, but the video game MMORPG Tower of Fantasy is trending as it is about to be released worldwide. Some even called him the “Genshin-killer”, although it doesn’t make much sense considering they are from completely different genres. However, what recently attracted attention was a Twitter user who claimed that the global launch was censored, although it is not entirely true.
The user shared four comparative screenshots of supposed changed character designs, writing in apparent frustration: “I already knew that the censorship was coming to Tower of Fantasy, since Hotta Studio is one of the Tencent companies, one of my followers told me about this, HoYoverse does not deserve this kind of censorship.».
However, comments began to arrive on the publication indicating that this censorship does not come from China, and that it has existed since before the launch of the video game was even decided. Some comments in this regard stated the following:
- «You do realize that “censoring” Shirli (the blonde girl) is not a global thing, right? Shirli went through a redesign and the censored version is the one the Chinese server had at launch, so of course it makes sense that we have the same thing. Stop spreading false information.».
- «[Tras hilo] Yeah, unfortunately when they first revealed the game they got a lot of flak for the art style and character design so they did a major overhaul on both and what the post showed was that comparison. It doesn’t look like the global version will be censored at all, so I wouldn’t worry either.».
With the above we can verify that the changes refer to the first versions of the video game in its entire history, and that they later transferred to the versions currently available on servers in Asia. That is, there seems to be no censorship in the global launch, since the same “approved” designs are being used after review by the same developer.
Under the Tower of Fantasy
In Fantasy Tower, dwindling resources and a lack of energy have forced humanity to leave Earth and migrate to Aida, a lush and habitable alien world. There, they saw the comet Mara and discovered an unknown but powerful energy called “Omnium”. They built the Omnium Tower to capture Mara, but due to the effects of the Omnium radiation their new life was a catastrophic disaster.
