Xseed Games specifically stated on its official Twitter account that the upcoming video game remake will be censored on the west on the PlayStation 4 console. To be precise, the interactive Intimacy Mode will be removed all together. There will be a slight delay due to this change.

The second tweet revealed that it was due to their intention to respect the wishes of the platform holder. It was clear the Sony Interactive Entertainment did not want this type of mode and wanted to remove it.

Trophy linked will not be missed

Localization lead Ryan Graff stated that the PS4 players will not miss the trophy that was linked to the feature. The trophy will still be included, but it will be changed to Oops Wrong Room. He also explained that the interactivity in the Dressing Room will be removed.

Localization producer Tom Lipschultz said that removing the feature was the best Xseed Games could do. They did not have any other option on the matter. They were given the choice between removing the Intimacy Mode and cancelling the game altogether. The publishers already had a lot of stuff done to the PS4 version and cancelling it would make their fans disappointed. So they chose the former option: removing the Intimacy Mode.
