Nintendo reportedly no longer allows “uncensored boobs” on Switch

Hot Tentacles Shooter

Nintendo has reportedly implemented more restrictive measures to crack down on adult content on the Switch eShop.

According to publisher Gamuzumi, who specialise in “mature (LEWD) titles” like Beauty Bounce and Elves Fantasy Hentai Puzzle, the company’s latest game, Hot Tentacles Shooter, has been rejected by Nintendo following an alleged change of policy.

In a Twitter thread, the publisher claimed: “We received an answer from Nintendo and now we have a confirmation that they do not allow uncensored boobs on their consoles now.”

They added: “Basically obscene content could damage the brand and infringe its policies. This means that now all games with boobs nudity should be censored and that’s why our game (Hot Tentacles Shoot) was rejected in the first place.

“Also, our recently announced game, Elves Christmas Hentai Puzzle, was also rejected due to having nudity.”

“It’s a shame that now, all consoles have restrictions about nudity content, this probably will affect not only our games but also games from other publishers/devs,” added Gamuzumi.

Hot Tentacles Shooter has been available on Steam and the PlayStation store since September 9, described as a “shoot’em arcade up with an irresistible strongly ecchi vibe”. A description reads: “Free 20 beautiful girls from the clutches of big tentacles.”

Nintendo has previously approved a number of adult games on the eShop, including Elves Fantasy Hentai Puzzle, Hentai vs. Evil and Hentai Uni, described as a “puzzle game that can be played with one hand”.

Back in 2019, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said (via Censored Gaming) the company was against applying censorship restrictions independently outside of third-party rating systems. “If platform-holding companies choose arbitrarily, the diversity and fairness in game software would be significantly inhibited,” Furukawa said.
