A number of games that come over from Japan end up getting slightly censored in the states or Europe due to various content. Atelier Ryza 2 will not be one of those games, as previously mentioned by the dev team.
In an interview with Junzo Hosoi, producer of Atelier Ryza 2 and brand manager at Gust, we hear Hosoi's stance on game censorship, and why Atelier Ryza 2 won't be undergoing any changes.
The GUST team do not see the need to edit a title for another culture or country as something necessarily bad, we do not have any bad or negative opinions particularly on this. Each country has their own unique culture and it really depends on what type of story the director, producer, or creator wants to infuse in the title – sometimes it might not work for every culture.
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 it was intended. Of course, as a player, I understand the desire to play the game as the creator intended.
