A Mass Effect Legendary Edition mod has restored cut content from the original games. Namely, the rather suspiciously angled Miranda’s butt shots.
As reported by Game Informer, it was brought to our attention that a modder has taken the time to restore the Miranda butt shots that were cut from the release of the Legendary Edition.
Miranda Lawson is a fan-favourite character that was introduced in Mass Effect 2. To say that Miranda was a popular romance choice in Mass Effect is an understatement. Though, she wasn’t the easiest character to romance (not that I would know, obviously).
Almost every time Miranda graced us with her presence on the screen, we were greeted with a camera angle not often used when interacting with other characters.
The removal of Miranda’s butt shots from Mass Effect Legendary Edition caused some outrage for a section of the gaming community and as Liana Ruppert of Game Informer perfectly puts it caused “Miranda Buttgate 2021”.
To be fair, there were a variety of odd camera angles in the OG Mass Effect Trilogy with several of its characters. But perhaps Miranda’s was the most memorable (for some reason).
So, in the Legendary Edition, BioWare took the opportunity to fix many of the odd camera angles, which included those belonging to Miranda. Henceforth “Miranda Buttgate 2021”.
Thankfully, for those of you that want to see the return of the opportunistic camera angles, you can download the PC mod that restores Miranda’s butt shots via Nexus mods. The mod will restore all your favourite camera angles in both Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3.
The butt is back!
The mod’s author ‘linkenski‘ says: “Steel your eyes, and pinch your nose! Now you can enjoy the sight of this woman’s backside as she talks about extremely sad and serious things, just like you used to. *Brrrrrap, brap*”
Apparently, there is a surprise when the mod is installed. All I know is that the volume needs to be up.
