Seems like we will need to wait a bit longer

I mean, who doesn't want to be Little Mac once in awhile?
Or a bootleg Dwarf
My favorite thing about these kinds of topics is that when NA launched and had cut all the old-type weapons people were fine with that. Even if it's led to a weird balance issue where we're vastly over powered and there's almost no upgrade content for us for the entirety of episode 4. Not many people complained.
But height limitations and a cut story scene from what has since it's JP release been considered the worst part of the entire game? People crawl out of the woodwork again and again to cry about how the game is missing content and it's been censored as if being able to jerk off to little girls is the single most vital piece of "content" the game had to offer.
It's hilariously transparent.
Maybe it's because the old-type weapons are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things; its temporary equipment that would be replaced, whereas the height limitation is a permanent aspect of your character?
I get the feeling this is a spinoff game, and that both it and PSO2 will run in parallel. Im speaking out of my ass on this part, but it seems to me New Genesis is more Monster Hunter inspired.
The ESRB is ruled out, so in my opinion, the call is coming from inside the house. Someone involved with this project thought imposing some arbitrary height restriction would be a good thing to do for some nonsensical reason. Maybe they misunderstood their demographic and thought fans would find very short characters out of place or stupid looking... although there are auxiliaries so yeah, doesnt even accomplish that.
At this point we can only ask the GMs to relay fans requests to remove the limitation, but considering its been a while now and the poll they said they would set up would still hasnt been created, Im skeptical if anything will change.
