Censorship is one of the most controversial issues in video games, that is why every time a creative speaks about it, it is very important to listen to their opinion. Today we receive statements from Junzo Hosoi, brand manager for developer Gust and producer of the upcoming RPG
In a recent meeting with Nintendo Life, he offered his opinion on the censorship suffered by some games of the style in West. We leave you with his words:
The Gust team doesn’t see the need to edit a title for another culture or country as necessarily bad, we don’t have any particularly bad or negative opinion on this. Each country has its own unique culture and it really depends on the type of story that the director, producer or creator wants to share in the title; sometimes it may not work for all cultures.
In the case of Atelier Ryza 2, the title we put together does not need to be censored for any market, and many people around the world can enjoy it as intended. Of course, as a gamer, I understand the desire to play the game as the creator intended.
Remember that it was confirmed in the past that this sequel would not be censored in western territory, so your opinion is not surprising at all. What do you think about that?
