Enix of America has denied the news concerning possible censorship of Dragon Quest VII. The company claims to plan to stay true to the original in any possible North American version, and mentions that they "uncensored", for the Game Boy versions, a number of things that had been taken out of the NES Dragon Warrior I and II. Enix has not officially confirmed yet whether they are releasing Dragon Quest VII in America.
