That's such **bleep**. Games are becoming more and more corporate, and with it they bring more and more legal, institutionalized greed.

 

I mean, the legal language covers it up, obfuscates it, but it's essentially some SquareEnix suit saying "don't say a word about this conversation because it'll risk our company's reputation and therefore profit." Grrr, enough money talk. More art, more creativity and more fun. Art is hollow if it's completely assimilated into and commodified by some capitalist production machine, the same applies to games.

I can't believe Seth even let slip there are talks with Square-Enix to begin with after how tight-lipped Superbot is being on DLC. So if thats true we can prob guess which characters were discussed Sora chief NOT among them.

i have no idea of a link but is saw this a while ago,

 

Disney doesnt like to have their name on things considered too violent. Remember how in the colosseum in Kingdom Hearts, cloud had his sword wrapped up? And how the keyblade doesnt really have sharp edges? Thats because disney requested clouds sword covered  up because they think it sort of goes against disney policy, having a character beaten up with a real sword. As much as I hope Sora does make it in, I honestly doubt he will. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer

Edit: Yeah, i know there are swords in the pirates world, there are in the mulan world as well, but think about clouds MASSIVE sword(No, not his ****) disney didnt want that thing penetrating their game(sexual pun intended)

I doubt Disney considers Sora as an "official" Disney character.

 

And that last part made no sense.

It's probably to keep the E10+ rating. Since Pirates is PG13 they would have to change a few things to keep the game from being rated T.

Probably because the game also has worlds from famous kid-friendly movies like Hercules and The Little Mermaid, which would attract young people and so they needed to censor some stuff.
