Nintendo rejects overly sexualized games
Nintendo appears to have tightened its policy of hosting games on its digital store, the Nintendo Shop. In any case, according to the news published on Twitter by the Gamuzumi studio, we can believe so. The latter is editor”focuses on releasing great titles (LEWD) for consoles and PC“. In his portfolio, for example, we note the presence of Sakura MMO 2 Where Hot Tentacle Shotter. The latter was rejected on the digital platform by Big Nwhose reason was brought to Gamuzumi:
We got a response from Nintendo and now we have confirmation that they are now not allowing uncensored boobs on their consoles. Basically, obscene content could harm the brand and violate its policies. This means that from now on all games with bare breasts have to be censored and that’s why our game (Hot Tentacles Shoot) was rejected in the first place.

However, the story doesn’t say what the procedure would be for games that allow players to enable censorship mode. as it should be for bayonet 3.
An example already seen on Sony and this psychological thriller
A limitation that inevitably causes disappointment for Gamuzumi but sees the glass half full: there is still the Valve Steam platform to release their games uncensored, while it is already good that the titles can be released, even censored. However, the studio considers it “Too bad that today all consoles have restrictions on nudity and that this will affect not only his games but also those of other developers and publishers“.
A case observed earlier in the year in February in the game Martha is Dead. A psychological thriller with many scenes that can be very traumatic for some: mutilation of face, abuse of their own children… Extremely gory content that LBK and Wired Production have never hid from and regularly warn that their experience does not continue suitable for everyone . However, the title is censored by Sony, forcing the developers to delay the release to correct what was wrong with this initiative.
