Yesterday we reported that Enjoy Gaming's DSiWare title, Zombie Blaster, had been removed from the 3DS eShop service in North America. It has now come to light that the reason for the game's disappearance was actually down to an issue with the game's ESRB rating.
Enjoy Gaming told Nintendo News that:
It was removed due to an error in the ESRB rating embedded in the code. ESRB re rated the game as Teen with descriptors and Nintendo took the product out of eShop because the parental controls were then wrong. The code has now been altered and resubmitted to Nintendo for their normal checks before it will be re released on eShop in the not too distant future.
If you're worried that you're potentially missing out on a classic new zombie-themed title, it's worth noting that we only awarded Zombie Blaster a mere 3/10 in our recent review. Given that Enjoy Gaming has only altered the code relating to the ESRB rating, we would advise you don't get your hopes thinking the re-released version will offer any improvements in the gameplay department.
