Persona a series that has sometimes struggled with homosexuality, such as Persona 4 & # 39; s well-intentioned but ultimately stubborn way of Kanji's love. Persona 5, on the other hand, had a couple of scenes including "Scruffy Romantic" and "Beefy Trendsetter" in a release that was … yes.
Here is the first of those scenes:
Just to get a clear idea of the tone, here's the same scene from Persona 5 anime:
Later, you can reunite with the couple during a classmate's trip to Hawaii:
To be clear: not only are these scenes done in an uncomfortable way, but they even get to the point of threatening kidnapping and sexual abuse by a high school kid.
Publishers Atlus received criticism for this there Persona 5 was released for the first time, and given the time to think it decided to edit both scenes for the game to be released.
Atlus Communications Manager Ari Advincula he told you IGN that "We have actually been able to follow some of the lines that the players may not have received, look at that answer and update it to the current generation."
Both the Shibuya and Seaside scenes are now set to drop you off, and Atlus's "in-house content assessment team" sees the changes as "an opportunity to make it right."
Persona 5 Royal is out on PS4 on March 31st.
