Devil May Cry 5 Update Removes Controversial PS4 Censorship in Trish Scene [UPDATE]

Devil May Cry 5 Trish

A few weeks ago, we reported that the day one patch for Devil May Cry 5 added some purple lights censoring a scene showing Trish’s naked body only on PS4 and only in western copies of the game.

Today another update was applied and it didn’t just add the Bloody Palace, but it also removed the lights in Trish’s scene, restoring parity among all platforms and regions.

This was noticed by YouTube user Itachi Uchiha and independently verified by yours truly (you never know, considering that it’s April 1). If you want to see it for yourself, you can also check out the recording of this livestream by Twitch user EX_Magician, which shows the PS4’s streaming UI and was just aired a few minutes ago at the moment of this writing.

Do keep in mind that the links to the videos above contain spoilers and mild nudity, so they’re relatively not safe for work. Watch at your own risk.

At this point, it’s hard to say what exactly happened, and whether the initial application of the censoring lights was intentional to begin with.

One thing is for sure: PS4 users can now play the game with peace of mind, knowing that their version shows exactly the same as the Xbox One and PC versions. All’s well that ends well, at least until the next episode of this apparently endless naughty bits saga.

Devil May Cry 5 is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Update: it appears that the censoring lights were removed only in North America, while European copies remain censored. Indeed, this is an endless saga.
