It’s what’s breast for Nintendo.

Nintendo eShop is cracking down on adult-themed content

It appears that the Nintendo eShop is to be cracking down on adult-themed content, a video game publisher has confirmed.

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

Nintendo eShop is a wild west

Most often than not, the best way to look up a game is via 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 might be considered easy for certain games to fly under the radar. This might be an ideal situation for a game that might have adult-themed and risqué content.

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

Nintendo eShop says no to boobs

We received an answer from Nintendo and now we have confirmation that they do not allow uncensored boobs on their consoles now,” tweeted Gamuzumi.

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

Extra censorship is required on the eShop

Gamuzumi shared its disappointment that Nintendo has allowed nudity content on the eShop before now. However, it is Nintendo’s right to change its policies if it feels the need to do so. Hopefully, publishers such as Gamuzumi will have success in all digital stores despite the requirement of censoring its games.
