Wii U game's Western version includes altered character costumes

The official website of Atlus' Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore (Genei Ibun Roku #FE Encore) role-playing game revealed on Thursday that the Japanese version of the Nintendo Switch game adds elements based on the Western version of the original Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE game for the Wii U. The website also noted that every region's version of the Switch game will share the same content. The Wii U game's Western release featured censorship changes, including altered character costumes.

The Switch game's Japanese website features a screenshot of the main character Tsubasa Oribe in an outfit that had been altered in the Wii U game's western version (seen below):

The same outfit in the Wii U game's Japanese version is shown below:

The Switch version will ship on January 17. The new version will add new songs and costumes, as well as additional scenarios and dungeons.

Nintendo describes the game:

The worlds of the Fire Emblem series and Atlus games have crossed paths again and the result is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ system. An inter-dimensional evil has invaded modern-day Tokyo, resulting in this fantastical barrage of music, style, and yes, danger. So, fight back! Battle through dungeons to pump up your strategy and creatively decimate your foes… before all hope fades to black.

You and the rising stars you call friends will need to call on your own creative power—manifested as iconic Fire Emblem characters—to wage a secret war on rogue spirits that feed on creativity. Each encounter will immerse you in deep, turn-based battles that blend the combat of the Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei series into one brutal harmony. Fuse items to craft weaponry; then play to your strengths and crush your foes. Around every corner you'll find fun nods to multiple fandoms, including Fire Emblem references, dungeons themed to the entertainment industry, and stunning musical performances.

Atlus released the game in Japan for the Wii U in December 2015. Atlus USA shipped the game in North America in June 2016.
