In fact, check a few lines that the player may not have received, check their feedback, and then [update it] For the current generation. Royal was a chance to get it right.

When I talked to GameSpot, senior project manager of Yu Namba, the two male characters I saw with Ryuji were ” [as]… predatory. “

I think the community responded very strongly to it, and you saw it, and it’s definitely Royal.

As a localization manager, I can’t do much about what’s already built into the game. Our team members felt a bit awkward when working on it.And with Royal, At least with regard to localization, I decided to see if I could do anything about it.
