Persona 5 Royal Video game developer Atlus has confirmed that the homophobic scene will be removed for the Western release.
Ari Advincula, Atlus Communications Manager, spoke with and explained that the series of scenes involving Ryuji and two gay characters would be modified to no longer show homosexuality in “negative light.”
Advincula continues to talk about localization efforts, including: Persona 5 And Persona 5 Royal..
When I talked to GameSpot, senior project manager of Yu Namba, the two male characters I saw with Ryuji were ” [as]… predatory. “
