Nintendo eShop cracks down on adult content

It appears that the nintendo eShop will crack down on adult content, a video game publisher has confirmed.

I think it’s fair to say that the Nintendo eShop on the Switch needs some work. Also, it’s not the easiest store to navigate with continuous bursts of AAA and indie publishers releasing the latest games on the store.

Nintendo eShop is a Wild West

More often than not, the best way to search for a game is to use the store’s search tool. In many ways, the eShop is a bit of a Wild West, so to speak.

However, with so many releases in a single week on the eShop, it can be considered easy for some games to slip under the radar. This could be an ideal situation for a game that might have risky adult-themed content.

As reported by Eurogamer (via Nintendo Everything), an indie publisher has had their game rejected due to updated eShop policies. Moreover, the publisher in question is Gamuzumi and the associated video game is Hot Tentacles Shooter.

Nintendo eShop says no to boobs

We received a response from Nintendo and now have confirmation that they no longer allow uncensored boobs on their consoles,Gamuzumi tweeted.

Gamuzumi followed in a series of tweets explaining that the yet to be released Christmas Elves Puzzle Hentai was also rejected due to the game featuring nudity. The publisher will be able to upload its games to the eShop but will have to do so by censoring them now.

Additional censorship is required on the eShop

Gamuzumi shared her disappointment that Nintendo allowed nudity content on the eShop before. However, Nintendo has the right to change its policies if it feels the need to do so. Hopefully, publishers like Gamuzumi will be successful across all digital stores despite the requirement to censor its games.
