『An open world set in the magical world of the series In “Hogwarts Legacy”, it turned out that transgender was added as a character setting option.Bloomberg reports.
Set in the late 1800s, this is an action RPG that takes you on a journey to find the truth hidden in the magical world as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.PopularIn this work, which is a new game of the series, you can create “the wizard you want to be” by customizing characters, learning spells, and upgrading abilities.
It seems that there is a clear reason why the development side came to incorporate the transgender setting. In June 2020, a Twitter post by JK Rowling, known as the original author of the Harry Potter series, was controversial as being discriminatory against transgender. The main cast of the movie series, including Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, also voiced this, disagreeing with Mr. Rolling’s remarks.
In response to these events, the Hogwarts Legacy development team said they were working to make the game as comprehensive as possible. As a result, transgender has been added to the characters that can be selected. In addition, Mr. Rolling is not involved in the production of this work.
According to anonymous insider information, players can choose between masculine and feminine voices, regardless of their physical characteristics. After selecting the gender of the wizard, the dormitory in Hogwarts and the names from other characters appearing in the game will be decided.
