Fire Emblem fans want hentai artist's work removed from game

Himukai Yuji's past work in doujin mangas has become a point of contention for fans of the game.
Fire Emblem Heroes has been one of the few Nintendo mobile releases that has managed to stay relevant, thanks to its large player base and the multiple events and connections it has with characters from across the franchise.

One of the most prominent has been Lucina, coming from the 2012 title Fire Emblem Awakening, and who has earned a special place among the most popular Nintendo characters, appearing in multiple games including Super Smash Bros.

This is why Lucina's introduction to the Resplendent Heroes section was something expected, where the most iconic characters in Fire Emblem receive an exclusive redesign available through the Feh Pass, a monthly subscription for the most hardcore fans of the mobile game.

However, the announcement has brought controversy with it, as the reveal of Lucina's resplendent art has been clouded by the work history of its designer, Himukai Yuji.

Himukai Yuji had previously worked with the Japanese company, creating the designs and concept art for some characters in the game, as well as collaborating on the art of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, and for his extensive work within the Atlus saga, Etrian Odyssey.

Despite this, as soon as the announcement was made, the fans of the game and the franchise didn’t take long to react, since it is well known that the illustrator has participated in the design of multiple games and doujin mangas, aimed at an adult audience, and where he has come to illustrate explicit situations with childlike characters.

The disgust and lack of acceptance towards the person in charge of creating the redesign has been noted, through the multiple comments and reactions made in the announcement tweet:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So far the developers of the game haven’t commented on the matter, however it isn’t expected any action will be taken against him, given the collaborations that he has done previously in the game and his good reputation in the industry.
