Fire Emblem Fates is incredibly popular, it’s release the best in series history. However, there was controversy attached to it in the localization that took place from Japan to the US.
The “face” of this controversy was spokesperson Alisan Rapp, who despite not having any part in the localization, had been accused of tampering with it. Now, Nintendo has released Rapp, though in a statement, they claim it is not due to Fire Emblem Fates:
“Alison Rapp was terminated due to violation of an internal company policy involving holding a second job in conflict with Nintendo’s corporate culture. Though Ms. Rapp’s termination follows her being the subject of criticism from certain groups via social media several weeks ago, the two are absolutely not related. Nintendo is a company committed to fostering inclusion and diversity in both our company and the broader video game industry and we firmly reject the harassment of individuals based on gender, race or personal beliefs. We wish Ms. Rapp well in her future endeavors.”
