Ever since the launch of the Switch, Nintendo took a stance on censorship with games that was considerably different from their competition. While Microsoft and Sony required games with nudity, bare breasts specifically, to censor that imagery, Nintendo allowed for that same content to be uncensored. Now it seems Nintendo may have nixed that approach.
Gamuzumi, the developer behind Hot Tentacles Shooter, claims that they’re game was shot down for release on Switch due to this new policy. When they submitted the game for release, Nintendo said it wouldn’t be allowed due to uncensored bare breasts. The same goes for Elves Christmas Hentai Puzzle, another game with nudity that Gamuzumi was planning to bring to Switch.
According to Gamuzumi, Nintendo is making this move because they believe “obscene content could damage the brand,” and it also infringes on their policies. Nintendo has given no reason as to why this change was made recently, nor have they shared a public statement on the decision.
This is just one developer so far, but we’re going to try and get comment on this matter to verify the news.
