Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore to be based on original Western Wii U version | Nintendo Wire
The upcoming enhanced port of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE for Nintendo Switch will reportedly be based on the Western release of the original Wii U game, meaning players worldwide (yes, that includes Japan) will play only with content that was in the localized English release.
More specifically, this means Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore will be "censored" and without the "racy" content of the original Japanese version: swimsuit costumes for playable characters via "hot springs" DLC, "suggestive" clothing for characters like Tsubasa, visible underwear for some female characters, and more.
This information was found via the official Japanese website for the game and thanks to shrewd Twitter users like JPUncut:
The japanese website for the upcoming Switch-Remake for Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE changed the "uncensored" japanese Outfit to the censored western vers.

Aside from visible changes to content, there were also contextual changes made in the original English release on Wii U, like the aging up of characters from 17 to 18.
It isn't known if these changes will be carried over to the international release of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore, too.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is an enhanced port of Tokyo Mirage Sessions for Wii U with new content included - although apart from a new song, "new story elements," and additional characters available in battle, not much else is known about the changes coming to the game.
Originally released in 2016, the title combines the universe of Fire Emblem with gameplay from the Shin Megami Tensei series.
It sees main character Itsuki Aoi in a version of modern-day Tokyo who, along with his friends, works at a talent agency alongside friendly "Mirages" based off popular Fire Emblem characters, like Chrom, Tharja, Caeda, and more.
Together, they work to solve the mystery behind a round of attacks against Tokyo civilians carried out by malevolent Mirages.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore releases worldwide for Nintendo Switch on January 17th, 2020 and can be pre-ordered now on the Nintendo eShop.
