Finally, Spike-Chunsoft explained that some changes have been made in order to secure a release on consoles in the west. The changes are fairly minor, but the company wanted to be as transparent as possible about this.
Here’s the two changes that were made:
- Sala Oasis Scene
- A sunbeam is placed over Sala’s naked lower body.
- Some cursor interaction symbols have been replaced with the “investigation” symbol. The story content and gameplay remains the same; only the cursor symbol itself has been replaced.
