Though the gender slider has no effect on gameplay

4 Июня 2020 г.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the game does away with gender limitations and allows players to customize their character however they see fit. In an interview with the Washington Post, the game's producer, Aya Kyogoku, said the decision to remove gender restrictions fr om Animal Crossing was to"create a game wh ere users didn't really have to consider sex, or if they wanted to think about gender, they are also able to."

That's why, in the beginning of the match, the player is asked to"select a style," but they can change their mind later and create their character seem as gendered or androgynous as they want. However, there are marked differences between the Western version and Western release.The Western release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons might be celebrated because of its innovative take on sex as well as the LGBTQ+ community, however the Japanese launch has been criticized for its opposite.

As this Twitter user pointed out, when creating their personality, Japanese players are asked to decide whether they identify as a"boy" or"girl" as opposed to choosing a"style." Additionally, non-player characters that mention having a same-sex partner (such as the beaver character, C.J.) rather refer to them as a"friend" in the Japanese version. This will explain why, despite being the most progressive match in the Animal Crossing franchise in terms of sex and sexual orientation, Animal Crossing: New Horizons programmers instills a sex slider that the player isn't meant to see.

Though the gender slider has no effect on gameplay, its addition speaks to the cultural differences in LGBTQ+ endorsement between the East and West. Hopefully, the sex acceptance will be demonstrated by future Animal Crossing games in the Japanese and Western versions. Until then, regional variations and secret sex sliders in this way remind us of the struggle for the LGBTQ+ community to be accepted on a worldwide scale.
