Update: D3 has confirmed that the game is coming to the west on 1st August 2019. It's getting a digital release on the eShop, while PlayStation 4 owners will have to make do with the 'toned down' Labyrinth Life on the PS Store.
Here's some PR:
Both Omega Labyrinth Life and Labyrinth Life feature similar characters, character skills, items, monsters, story plot, dungeon layouts and difficulty settings, but each differ by how they display their sexual content. A list of key differences and comparisons between the two console versions of the game can be found on the game’s website in Japanese here.
The story unfolds at Belles Fleurs Academy, a spacious school with a beautiful floral garden that holds a sacred flower of legend known as “Flora,” which radiates a mysterious power that is rumored to grant an everlasting bloom effect to the rest of the flowers in the garden. Suddenly, the everlasting bloom to the flowers in the garden wither away when maiden Hinata Akatsuki transfers to the Academy. Now, Hinata along with a new cast of stunning maidens from the academy, go off on an adventure, exploring a sacred dungeon in hopes of returning the garden back to its grandeur, and to fulfil their own hopes and dreams at Belles Fleurs Academy.
Both games will bring familiar roguelike JRPG turn-based mechanics like the previous Omega Labyrinth series in which maidens can grow their chest size by accumulating the mysterious Omega Power by defeating enemies in a procedurally generated dungeon with the risk of losing all of the player’s earned stats, items, and gear upon defeat.
Omega Labyrinth Life and Labyrinth Life key features include:
Tactical turn-based combat: Control and execute strategies between the maidens against various enemies in 2D dungeons
Procedurally generated dungeons: Dungeon layouts and enemy placement are always randomised every playthrough, bursting with loot and challenges
Maiden’s dream: Collect Omega Power by defeating enemies to grow maiden’s breasts up to Z-Cup
Breast Burst Mode: Activate to double a maiden’s stats for a short period of time for tight situations against formidable enemies or enemy hordes
Skill★Bloom System: Unlock new skills, stats, and more with nectars found in the dungeon and academy that will reveal unique illustrations from each maiden
Size up System: Squeeze and rub discovered item drops in dungeons between maiden’s breasts to reveal their potential to a maiden’s journey
New Double Breast System: Change between maidens during a dungeon-crawl to utilise various skills and gain a tactical advantage to maneuver around enemies and obstacles
Take a break in Slow Life: Enjoy life outside of fighting and dungeon crawling back at Belles Fleurs Academy by exploring the Garden Academy, chatting with other maidens, and managing the garden’s beautiful upkeep for collecting powerups and more
Original Story: Last year, publisher PQube was forced to cancel plans to release Omega Labyrinth Z on the PS4 and Vita after the Video Standards Council Rating Board refused to classify the title in the UK and other PAL regions due to its sexual depiction of underage girls.
Following the refusal, Sony stepped in and requested the cancellation of the title's localisation efforts, forcing PQube to state:
PQube must respectfully comply with the wishes of the platform holder and have therefore withdrawn any future plans for Omega Labyrinth Z's European and North American release.
It is with sadness that we announce that the game is cancelled on both platforms and all Western regions permanently. We will not comment further on this matter. Thank you for your support.
While that seemed to be the end of the matter – at least for western gamers who wished to play Matrix Software's latest roguelike RPG – we're now hearing that an updated edition will be getting an English language localisation thanks to its Asian release.
Watch the trailer below at your own risk.
Omega Labyrinth Life is coming to the Switch on August 1st in totally uncensored form, and will include English, Japanese and Traditional Chinese language support. It's also coming to the PlayStation 4, but that edition will contain "censorship required for the platform".
So what's the content that got Sony and the Video Standards Council Rating Board all worked up? We'll allow the official PR to do the talking here:
The titular mechanic 'Omega Power' affects the chest size of the characters you control, gradually increasing the size over time. As your character's chest size increases, so will their status, and when your status reaches its maximum potential 'Hatsumune Mode' will be triggered! As you fight and explore your way through dungeons you'll earn points that be used to earn new items.
In order to know the details about items you've obtained, you'll need to have them appraised through the game's unique 'Oppai Appraisal' system, which consists of placing said item between the character's breasts and jiggling them, thus revealing the item's true nature.
If you're brave enough to watch this NSFW expanded trailer, then you'll perhaps come to understand why the title was deemed objectionable; many of the characters are extremely young-looking, yet players are encouraged to rub objects between their inflated breasts.
Still, if that's your cup of tea, you're going to get the chance to see what the fuss is all about – in English.

Yeah... Hard pass
Good for those who want this kind of games.
I love you Japan. Never change.
BEWBS!! Nothing wrong with that. Sony is killing themselves slowly with these draconian policies. Switch will be the viable platform. Still a niche genre. However, the precedent will be set.
"The titular mechanic 'Omega Power' affects the chest size of the characters you control, gradually increasing the size over time. As your character's chest size increases, so will their status"
This just sounds hilarious. Idk, but something about boobs is funny to me. And in anime they have their own physics engine for some reason. They live their own life.
Love the sass and moral clarity in that title, btw.
People should be able to play whatever they enjoy without prudish control freaks ruining their fun.
@IHateTombs It's not a Western release. The Asian releases of several games feature English support, and, since the Switch is region free, it allows Western players to import it and fully enjoy it without having to deal with prudes and censorship controversies.
Personally, I feel that society as a whole is being made to take sexual matters more seriously than is necessary because of the actions of a minority.
Unless some duress, violence or deception is involved, sex really isn't the big deal some make it out to be.
I understand why some respond with outcry, but like most other matters, if you try to censor and banish them, you just force the people that were going to do it anyway to do it in a more secretive/illicit/underground manner, which tends to be what causes the problems.
Hahahaha I just clicked on the special edition link and read the feature list! Here's one of my faves:
"Oppai Rock-Paper-Scissors System - Control breasts to play rock-paper-scissors"
You can club people to death in most Rockstar games. Sony would rather leave that uncensored.
There are a million reasons why this game is degrading and really quite pedoish so I don’t blame Sony for not wanting it clogging up their store. While I respect that censorship is A Bad Thing, I don’t feel that these sorts of games really serve to help society when it’s clearly changing for the better. It’s very obvious that the gaming industry will be one of the last bastions of toxic masculinity and overall awfulness through both the fans and some of the developers so I hope that these sorts of games aren’t censored, but rather released and then completely ignored and fade into obscurity, as they should.
Thanks I hate it.
Only in Japan 🇯🇵 !
I’d hate to think how the teenage, school age, girls in Japan must be viewed and treated by boys and men in that country.
@nessisonett... Wow, we're you being serious when you wrote that? It's hard to tell.
I just love how Nintendolife acts as if no one would recognize the game's name, so it's not mentioned in the article's title. The judgemental "if that's your cup of tea" is just icing on the cake.
I don't appreciate your attempts to dictate what I'm supposed to think, if that's not clear enough.
Didn't know that the release date for it was so close It's a day one buy for me, as I love anime games. No problem if Sony censors them, I'll gladly welcome the uncensored versions on Switch.
@Laxeybobby Tell me: do you think fans of slasher films are more prone to violence toward promiscuous teenagers, or somehow secretly wish that they could stalk and kill young people in the woods?
Fantasy is fantasy. Reality is reality.
@nessisonett I don't think game developers are in any way obligated to "help society." A society where all entertainment also serves as propaganda to the masses sounds like an incredible bore, personally.
@Ralizah Entertainment that serves to undermine any sort of societal progress doesn’t sound helpful at all. I’m sure there’s a nice middle ground that doesn’t even need to touch on those issues, such as Pokemon and the like. Not all games need to be degrading.
@nessisonett Niche fanservice games aren't "undermining societal progress." Most people can tell the difference between reality and fantasy. Most people can play a game like GTA without suddenly feeling the urge to torture, pillage, and murder, too.
You have a depressingly low estimation of your fellow human being.
And I also don't see why games need to be "helpful." I think there's something fundamentally sinister about trying to connect art and propaganda on such a fundamental level.
@nessisonett So this game is bad but other games which promote murder, terrorism, prostitution, sex and more aren't?
This is something I dislike, double-standards on games. Let's pick on games because they're anime games, but not pick on games that have a lot more bad content in it, because the mainstream people buy them and the big companies make the $$$.
Either ban all of then or leave them there and each person plays whatever they want.
@Ralizah The game has a system that literally promotes a better status directly correlating to the size of the girl’s bust. If that’s not damaging propaganda then how is saying that’s wrong?
Pah ha ha! Only the Asians can get away with stuff like this, laughed my head off at the advert, shouldn't really watch it at work, but couldn't help myself, and this comment section is gonna be brilliant to watch.
@Baart Sony be like BOOBS BAD VIOLENCE GOOD
@Kit Get back to Resetera soy
Doesn't Sony have games like Senran on their consoles? Why are they being anal with this stuff now?
The difference between this and murder, terrorism is that everyone knows murder and terrorism is bad. On the other hand, objectifying women is still seen as a normal thing by lots of people - this game doesn't help in that regard.
I like fanservice when there's some class to it. This is just ridiculous.
But I'm also glad the company is resisting censorship. Devs should, within reason, be able to express themselves however they like and let the market decide if they want it or not.
@Starvald Objectifying women IS normal. So is objectifying men. Humans are sexual creatures, and they like to look at attractive bodies. Do you fundamentally see anything wrong with the shirtless hunks on the covers of romance novels, or women getting their perv on when a male stripper is performing?
@nessisonett I'm not quite sure what you're asking. Care to elaborate?
Exactly and you think the person who wrote the article could of worded the headline better with out it sound like the ravings of a rabid fanboy. Just comes of as click bait and fanboyism
Big difference between objectifying adults and pervering on kids what most of these games do, but the pervs who like these games always have some excuse for there sick impulses
@Ralizah Haha sure, sorry about that! I was referring when you said that if games promoted a message that reflected societal progress, that would be spreading propaganda through games. I just don’t see how the opposite isn’t also true, by this game promoting a message of objectifying very young looking girls and bust sizes being equal to a woman’s worth. Wouldn’t that also be spreading propaganda, but against changing western values?
Incorrect, like doa extreme 3 its getting an asia region release that INCLUDES english subtitles
So its an import only affair once again
I'm not interested in this game (boobs or no boobs), but the jab at Sony at the end of the trailer was perfect.
@nessisonett These games aren't attempting to enforce a value judgment on real women. Most entertainment doesn't explicitly function as propaganda. The game "promotes" large busts because, in general, many men seem to find them to be attractive. That's the large and small of it. Anyone over the age of seven who plays a game like this and suddenly thinks that women with small breasts are somehow less worthwhile human beings is in critical need of extensive therapy, and should probably be confined for their own protection.
@suikoden I'm sure most pedophiles would gravitate toward depictions of actually young-looking children and not vaguely mid-to-late teens anime girls with enormous breasts. So the "pedo" boogeyman isn't really looking too viable in this instance. I doubt most people see a game like this and ruminate on the ages of non-existent cartoon high school girls.
Besides, plenty of Western entertainment has extensively detailed the sexual travails of teenagers without causing a mass epidemic of teen rape, so I think we're good.
Not for me, but as long as there’s nothing illegal here, and the appropriate age rating is applied, I don’t have an issue with this.
@nessisonett is it as bad as most games that directly correlate your game's level to how good of a murderer you are? You could say, my character is a hero, someone needed me to kill that massive population of animal and/or sentient goblin tribe outside town. How many NPCs have you murdered that had no intention of attacking you and didn't automatically con onto you?
What about Link, paragon of the moral high ground being forced to crossdress just to complete a game and get into a townful of sexists? The same Link who uses his false identity to leave a poor otaku outside that city with no footwear in the middle of a burning desert?
That Link is also judged as not the hero by many NPCs due to his height, despite his deeds and ownership of the master sword.
In the Fallout games determine your success and dialogue options via charisma, speech, business or sexy clothing allowing you to use your sex appeal to "win" dozens of situations throughout the games.
Are any of these examples horrible and wrong? No. They are just as bad as your character needing big boobs to succeed because all of them are fantasy. Some are a simulation of some parts of reality, but due to being videogames they are not wrong. Art is not wrong. It just exists as a reflection of society. What's acceptable and unacceptable to you is a personal choice, don't hope to force it on others. Do not praise those that would keep you from playing certain games, watching certain movies, or reading certain books because someone determined it might cause you to think or feel a way your government doesn't want you to. Don't allow yourself to become part of the Nazi, Soviet, Communist fearing Conservatives that have tried to contain the human mind to their ideal.
When it comes to art: Either all of its okay or none of it is. You don't want to live in that society of severe censorship.
@Starvald Games containing those things are aimed at adults. People who usually have no problem telling fiction from real life, unless they have mental health issues? So what if innards and tits fly about in a video game aimed at adults? There should be restrictions to what can be put in a game for children, but adult media can go as crass as people are willing to pay for.
Yet a lot of people treat those games much like the pearl-clutchers from the 90s, when video games were seen as kids only entertainment.
I don't really get the appeal of this sort of game— one almost strictly existing for fanservice. I won't lie— I enjoy that sort of thing from time to time, but only in games that actually have something more to them. If this is your thing, then more power to you, I guess. I'm glad to hear that Nintendo's being good about matters of censorship but definitely more concerned about Sony doubling down on their policy— especially with new iterations of my two favorite games on the way as PS4 Exclusives. Fingers crossed that they remain untouched.
Pretty sure this got banned in Australia lel.
It's called fiction. It isn't real. And if you can't tell the difference between reality and fiction, be it games, books, movies or whatever, that is entirely your fault!
Everything should be clearly rated, but censorship is nonsense.
The only time I support censorship is if the content is actually calling for real abuse of people or actual violence.
The biggest problem with media today is not the media itself, but the people who cannot separate reality from fiction.
All that said, I'm not very interested in this game. Because it's apparently a roguelike RPG. If it were just a regular RPG or JRPG, I'd consider it.
Tru it's just an Eastern release @NorseGamerTommy but shipping only cost $7 and with no tax unless Belgium as import tariffs / taxes.
I know this'll get downvoted into oblivion, but man, the "anime makes it ok" excuse doesn't fly when talking about the sexualization of underage characters.
@Primarina In terms of objectification, I think most people can walk and chew gum at the same time. If you think a guy is hot, you can probably appreciate him as a sexual object, and enjoy looking at his chest or his rear end as a purely aesthetic experience. But you can also manage to treat him with dignity and respect, and not reduce him purely to a sexual object in your mind at all times. I imagine most men manage to be the same way with attractive women.
I also imagine most of the men in Hollywood being outed as sexual predators probably weren't trained on a regimen of insidious Japanese fanservice games.
@HikaruKitsune If that doesn't make it ok, then the "chill out dude, the whole city that I murdered in GTA and all those 1000 hookers I humped aren't real, it's just a game" shouldn't be ok either. Just double standards that people have because they have something against anime. Make anything that has similarities, but is western and everyone will find a reason to say that it's okay, be it because it's popular or because it makes tons of money.
@nessiomett. The funny thing about art & entertainment is that it really only has the power to culrurally promote that which already is. The thematic idea of the game is one that appeals to me very highly; I like big boobs and bigger boobs are better boobs. But I never once correlated an idea that "a woman's worth is tied to the size of her boobs". Yes, I have a fascination and fixation on them, they are alluring to me, but they are not a single, standalone metric and more of an "also" bonus. The thought had never crossed my mind that it was promoting such a concept, bcause there's nothing I already think for it to latch onto
Did animal fighting rings go on the rise when Pokémon was released and took the world by storm? It's a game that promotes pitting creatures that are not your species and that you claim to love in all-out fights against each other. Or did things stay more or less the same because that promotion only resonated with people who already thought and identified with that message? Arts and entertainment are much less an influence on society but rather a reflection of it.
And regarding the age thing, maybe I'm just sick, but the characters appear matured enough to be at least midway through highschool. Which is enough for me to be okay with, not because the fantasy is my 30-year-old ass is hooking up with them ('cause it's not at all), but more of a "how awesome would it have been to have been with them in high school/college/whenever it lines up" and fantasy musings about continuing that "relationship" and mentally aging them through the years to the "present" alongside me and stuff. Yes, I am a pathetic, sad, lonely loser. But it doesn't mean I wanna see tits slapped on a ten year old being molested. And also, Japan seems to have a lower age on what is considered taboo formsexuality stuff, so for things over there to be using the numbers they do is no different than the "she just turned 18" perviness that goes on over here.
@HikaruKitsune But sexualization of animals is perfectly ok. You call them 'furry', right?
Uh... Omega Labyrinth Life is not a new version of Omega Labyrinth Z. It's a different game. This article makes no sense.
Omega Labyrinth Life doesn't contain the character named Urara, who is the character from Omega Labyrinth Z that the ratings people deemed too underage-looking for the type of game this is.
Don’t agree with censorship and it’s important that we release games like this so the people who buy them-and really passionately want to be able to buy them-are known to us. Maybe we can get their Hard Drives checked.
Anyone who buys this should be put on a list.
I wasn't super interested in this, but I'll buy it to support these kinds of games. It'll probably turn out to be fun
We need more of them. (Senran Kagura main series please stop by Switch kthxbai)
Gotta love the bit at the end of the expanded trailer with all the “family friendly fun” offered by the PS4 version. Will pass on the game but hey, if you get enjoyment out of the game and keep your jiggling in the virtual world (or your significant other with their consent) then more power to you!
Gee... I'm a fan of fanservice (fanfanservice?), but even I find this game to have poor taste >>;
Still fail to see why Sony is making all the "censorship required for the platform" fuss when even Nintendo stopped to force censorship.
May it be strict or dumb, but there is an age rating system already, no need to add on top of it.
I understand why Sony has censored this game. But I still am against any kind of censorship. It brings people to outrage, that's all. Also, there are so many rating systems like ESRB and USK these days, that developers can leave them the evaluation work.
The game isn't my "cup of tea" though. I love anime style games like Persona 5, Trails and Tales of, Fire Emblem, but when fanservice reaches a level that I cannot play without being ashamed of myself... No, thank you.
Does everyone have their rusty spoons ready?
@cronosus01 I'd be just as skeeved out by a western game that sexualized children, too.
Pure garbage. Reevaluate your life if you’re actually considering buying this.
@Baart I wouldn't play a game that sexualized them either, no.
@Ralizah @Illusion Once again your mindsets impress me. I have to agree whole-heartedly. @nessisonett To be fair, I can attempt to walk in your shoes and see your viewpoint as well. A "bigger bust" meaning higher levels/more power probably isn't the healthiest concept if you are looking into this game for morality studies. However, if anyone is seriously attempting to reflect the views of this game and bring it into real life, that truly is an issue that needs to be sorted by the person and not the game. I think this is why ESRB ratings are important..anyone 17 years of age or below may not have a developed-enough brain to separate the actions or viewpoints in this game from real lessons that are hopefully being taught by their parents, role models and peers. Appreciating a unique game centered around what your brain may or may not be biologically attracted to shouldn't clash with being respectful to women or any other human being for that matter, especially based on physical attributes or the lack thereof.
This seems nowhere near as bad as that 'My Friend Pedro' game shown yesterday, and its article didn't have comments like "but if brutally murdering hundreds of people is your cup of tea..."
Sigh. Western culture makes no sense.
I'm sure there's an audience.
You don't really get to decide what looks good or bad to other people. But I agree that it's odd how casual violence is much more accepted than casual sexualization.
Lol count me in!
I love this. Not the fact that it's virtual smut. The fact that it's a gigantic, enormous EffU to Sony and their heavy handed political pandering, with Nintendo coming to the rescue, of all companies.
@Laxeybobby I'm pretty sure it's the exactly same way teenage school girls are viewed by boys in the West, except they pretend to be demure there, whereas they count their jelly bands of how many guys they've slept with by age 15 here..... Or whatever this decade's version is. The jelly bands are so 2010 I guess.
@Ralizah No I don’t.
However Japan seems to have a culture that over sexualises young girls in school uniforms in video games, Manga and in real life. I’m in law enforcement and I had a colleague who’s daughter was a Japanese YouTube sensation Beckii Cruel for a while for that exact reason until she got to an age she was no longer popular. (Google the name and watch her videos. She was even the focus of a BBC documentary about the interests of Japanese men in her and all the gifts they would send her)
@Laxeybobby Heh. Long-Distance Enjo Kosai.
Seems like I’d feel really uncomfortable playing this. Plus I’d feel like a creep sitting alone playing it. I’ll pass. For those who enjoy this sort of thing, have fun.
Yes I totally agree that boys in the west are going to be interested in girls. Boys all over the world will be interested in girls and boys.
It was just my belief that the Japanese culture seems more open about sexualising young girls in school uniforms.
But I’m not wet behind the ears not to know that there are plenty of western websites and magazines that can be subscribed to or visited that do the same. Just not so freely in the form of western made video games.
@HikaruKitsune Yes your not wrong. She did have several paid for trips to Japan which her father was the chaperone (also paid for).
Worth googling the BBC documentary on her.
@Laxeybobby Alright. I read a couple of articles about her. Seems like she's a well-adjusted and reasonably happy young woman who maintains an interest in Japanese culture. Her experiences sound in line with what I know about the demographics of Japanese idol culture, too.
Mind pointing me to the sections that should inspire in me a sense of revulsion or alarm? Or how any of this connects to a Switch game about oppai enlargement?
@Laxeybobby Yeah, the real key difference may come down to they hypocrisy in the west. When you look at this Japanese stuff, it's not actually any different than what kids are THINKING here. They just openly display it whereas everyone here pretends they're not as part of our double think.
Not that Japan doesn't have its own double think for social norms. Just in different areas.
I do recall some survey that the top fetishes in the adult/toy industries were school girl and cheerleader in the US. So it's every bit as sought after here....it's just pretended otherwise and treated as clandestine.
I have the CE preordered ^_^
So this game won't be rated in Europe due to sexual depiction of underage girls. This could easily be cosidered child pornorgraphy in some european countries then.
And europe has no problem with sex unlike america. We usually have problems with violence but even that got a lot less lately.
@Sinister Z was rated by PEGI, just banned or something in UK. Could have been released elsewhere if Sony didn't do what they did.
As I said she’s the daughter of a retired colleague I used to work with and she is well adjusted and very business minded.
My point was about the Japanese culture that she never made the same popularity in the West/UK/Europe even though she tried spending a lot of money she’d earn through her Japanese YouTube fans on record producers to launch a UK music career.
There’s no repulsion or alarm from me as her father was in law enforcement and used the Japanese ‘fetish’ for how she looked to their advantage and made a lot of money.
@NEStalgia has hit the nail on the head with his evaluations of the differences. I can’t add anything more to that as I agree with him.
@tobibra From the linked article it sounded like it was not able to be released in the UK, Ireland, Germany, New Zealand and Australia.
Shut up and take my money!.....But seriously sony censorhip on their 3rd party games could cost them big time down the road.
@Sinister That sounds about right. Germany, NZ and Australia has a tendency to ban ecchi games anyway. But should still be able to be sold in other European contries and America if it were not for Sony suddenly saying no.
thank you nintendo
the young blood in charge of the company during the switch era really know how to appease my gamer needs
@StevenG people like you should have no say wat people can buy or not and defending censorship also makes you look bad.
@Laxeybobby Sounds like everyone came out the better for the experience.
Anyway, Japan undoubtedly has a culture that reveres youth. For many Japanese people, the high school years were the high point of their lives before adulthood and the onset of excessive responsibility and wage slavery to whatever corporation they ended up with. So it makes sense that they tend to idolize and perhaps even fetishize young adults on the cusp of adulthood.
If you want to point to that as a clear symptom of Japanese social problems, I'd be inclined to agree, but I don't think it's as depraved and predatory as a lot of Western commentators make it out to be.
Which, come to think of it, might be projection: after all, rape and molestation are way larger social problems in the Western world, broadly, than they are in Japan.
Omega Labyrinth Z Was a failure in Japan on release. Even they didn't want it uncensored.
More garbage at $59.
@Ralizah Wage slavery sounds downright dreamy compared to the "survival of the fittest" approach of the modern West. But we have the "high school was the best part of your life" commonality with them, at the least.
@NEStalgia Most people I talk to consider their teenage years to be a low point in their lives, given the lack of money, stressing about personal identity and what they want to do in life, issues related to puberty, etc.
The closest American equivalent to the Japanese high school years is the culture and freedom cultivated during the undergraduate college years (for people from middle-class families who aren't enslaved by debt as a result of attending, anyway).
A lot of Japanese people literally work themselves to death. Their culture's work ethic is incredibly unhealthy. Not that I disagree about the detrimental effects of America's hyper-capitalism, mind you.
Looks good day one buy!
Japanese gamers really have some interesting tastes in terms of games were you the main goal is to "touch" women. I wonder how advanced is VR porn over there...
I love family friendly Nintendo. Always looking out for our best interests.
"which consists of placing said item between the character's breasts and jiggling them, thus revealing the item's true nature"
Those Japanese, they are lovely.
Not my type of game but please keep censorship out of art and games.
@RiasGremory People like you should learn how to write in English.
Censorship is when the government blocks speech, a private company not wanting to sell a repulsive product is not censorship.
I said your name should be on a list, not that the product shouldn't be sold.
I get a back ache every time I hear about this game.
@Ralizah Weird, you young'uns are a strange lot Back in my day we were even endlessly told that the high school years would be the best years of our lives.....
As for university years, yeah, nothing like trying to keep up, "professors" that have no function but to collect a union pension (that you'll never have), all while working full time and accruing debt you know you're not ACTUALLY going to pay and thus will never have credit of any sort ever....good times.... High school is the end of life. The rest is just waiting for death. I'm with the Japanese on this one.
As for the overworked Japanese.....not everyone is Sakurai. For the majority, they work endless hours for reasons....but productivity is actually abysmal. They don't actually DO useful things with much of that time, they're just "present." Here' we have similarly destructive hours while being expected to be robotically efficient and the most productive in the world. The "Japanese are overworked" meme always needs the asterisk stating "but not as much as Americans." And they don't have the "if you're not on top you're on bottom" mentality.
I like roguelikes.
I’m not really comfortable with this so I’ll pass on it.
But I’m glad Nintendo is being cool to not censor their market. Heck, I’m impressed they allowed something that Song didn’t. Good on you, Nintendo!
anyone who buys this game should be shunned and jailed. same for the devs.
Was already ready for people to whine about censorship. It's like you all want your freedom but you don't want any other person, developer or publisher to have theirs.
You can't have your cake and eat it too. You're free to play silly games about boobs and Sony is free to refuse to host them in their store. They don't owe you an explanation even though it's obvious why they did it.
The phenomenon is well-documented.
Anyway, life is only over once brain functions cease. I ain't lettin myself get trapped into wage slavery as I get older. Once I get to the age where all my beloved family members are dying and leaving me on my own, I'm going to go do something nuts: join a weird religion, maybe, or vanish from the grid and wander the wilderness. Go lose myself in some interesting foreign country, maybe. If the U.S. is overtly militarized and tyrannical by then, I'll join some sort of resistance movement to help fight for liberty and apple pie.
I'm ultra-cloistered and fixated on safety while I still have people to relate to. Once that's gone, though, it's time to see how strangely I can live.
I'm a bit indifferent towards this game, but wow, Sony's censorship policies are pure hypocrisy.
Jesus. What's with people condemming others for playing or buying some dumb japanese game?
I don't like censorship. And Nintendo already said once that they are letting the ESRB decide in terms of the sexual content of a game being too much to be in their platform (since any of the three big consoles accept Adult Only rated games by the ESRB). And it's true Sony's recent policies regarding sexual content are confusing (like... why they censor a butt in DMC5? That seemed so unnecessary).
But I still don't get this games. I just don't.
I hope Sony's PlayStation 5 becomes a commercial and critical failure and go out of business.
@Ralizah Oh, it's documented sure. Though it's not like people aren't killing themselves from overwork in the us. Take a look at the amount of people that "fall" from Wall St. offices alone. Though despite the overwork they do have that whole sense of job security. Job insecurity is an even worse problem. Nobody notices the people that jump out of windows that aren't offices.
But again, notice the focus is on the HOURS spent working. Or...the hours spent "at the company" more precisely. They don't tend to do the run-run-run pressure cooker jobs there like they do here, in part because they have so many workers due to the semi-guaranteed job security. Here they trim to only the minimum workers needed, and 1 can do the job of 4.
Yes, the executives are working themselves "just like Americans", but not the average Joe...nichi. It's a country where it can infamously take 2 hours to send an email. They have the opposite problem of people bored to tears at their desks for 120 hours a week of doing next to nothing at all (I'd go crazy with that setup, too.)
Meanwhile Japan is trying the shape capes to get people to not work 120 hour weeks, while Bezos and friends here are scheming for ways to make us work 140 hours across 3 jobs for no healthcare, at peak productivity.
IIRC the US ranked between 3rd and 5th in productivity in the world (down from 1st.) Japan ranked between 20th and 25th, just above Solvenia and below Canada. (Yay?) Those endless hours aren't exactly put to the grindstone......... I'm sure there's some extra time for Oppai games in that day....
IIRC, the Koreans have a saying: "Don't be lazy like the Japanese!"
As for your late life changeover....you can always try a move to Japan and endlessly not working much, all day long?
Though I'm pretty sure we'll all be fighting the Chinese in hand to hand survival combat by that point no matter which country we're in.
Why can't Japanese Devs make a cheat codes to unlock the dirty content or do something like the late Kenji Eno did switching the "clean" discs with the finalized discs including the horrific content? Would the devs would get away with it from Sony censorship policies if they do that or not?
Sweet, I'm happy to see it confirmed in English outside of Japan! Count me in, we have too little Mystery Dungeon games around here, that's a chance!
@Borngis what a great idea. Would make prisons a lot more diverse!
I hate this type of game and cartoon boobs aren't saving it...
*puts fingers to temples, closes eyes and concentrates" I'm getting the word......nonce
"The titular mechanic... "
The person who wrote this, should get the pun intended award. Brilliant.
@Illusion The voice of reason in a sea of moralistic and "sorely-missing-the-point" idiots, specifically the part of your comment mentioning the freedom of art, and it never being wrong. Brilliant. Thank you. Probably the best, and most sensible comment in this thread, closely followed by most of what @Ralizah said. (@Heavyarms55 also made a pretty good comment, though)
This ever-growing, idiotic, moralistic, close-minded, frustrated and uber-careful-to-not-even-create-the-tiniest-ripple-of-discontent society is starting to annoy me more and more. Especially the rather vocal online minority.
@NEStalgia I think some people on here (not you, obviously) are pretty dishonest about not being the slightest bit interested in younger members of the opposite sex. Once their midlife crisis sets in, the reality check is REALLY going to hit them hard...
I have no problems whatsoever with confessing that I most certainly can appreciate a girl dressed up in a schoolgirl outfit, although probably needless to say, obviously a girl of the legal-aged kind.
Also, this article also now has me wondering how the heck you can play rock, paper, scissors with breasts...
@ThanosReXXX just remember, youthful girls are millennials or post millennials...... And away goes the attraction, just like that.....
@NEStalgia Better not bring up that label again, unless you're prepared to dig in and willing to defend yourself against a sh** storm of "righteous" indignation....
@NEStalgia LOL The cut-off date for millennials is 1996, you know? Even the youngest of us are still adults now. The mid 20's to late 30's crowd. I think we've officially reached the point where "millennial" can no longer be used to mean "crazy young person."
"You millennials with ya Nintendos and ya Walkmans and ya gay marriage!" Shakes fist at the sky
Jesus, the framing of this article is ridiculous. How very draconian of Sony to try to "silence" the high art of fondling underage anime tiddy.
@Ralizah i dunno, the US considers 23 to be children... You're somewhat right... Though the "official" years for the group don't actually match the associated traits. Then again, none of them count as particularly young... So it's the post millennials that are in the questionable age group thanos referenced.
The 20s and 30s group aren't really the same cultural generation at all. Two different worlds. Regardless I think i have most in common with 90 year olds
@ThanosReXXX to be fair, responding to this thread is a click-wrap agreement to exactly that.
@NEStalgia I can't argue with that, and besides: it's weekend, so time to drink all my weekly sorrows away, and forget all about today's declining society for at least a couple of days...
@StevenG keep on trolling and you get a banned hammer from the site.
@ThanosReXXX just make sure to be lucid on Sunday for the big XBox show!
good, the more uncensored games the better even if it has to go to another platform, sony is being too pc with this to maintain some sort of failed image to a small group
@NEStalgia Oh, no worries, I'm an experienced drinker, and I never get as think as you drunk that I am...
I'll grab the collectors edition, a little scary how worked up people get over video games sometimes.
I'll be buying a copy of this sometime later this summer. I'm also glad they targeted 60fps on Switch with it.
Sometimes its games with silly ideas like this that are over the top in their presentation that makes them irresistible and fun. Playing a game like this doesn't compel me to go out and fondle young girls or anything (can't stand pedos at all).
Plus video game and anime girls aren't real anyway. /shrug
@Jingo_Unchained yes and i'm sure if it was only boys you wouldn't open your mouth about it. When the other sexe is being used suddenly you have a problem. You sound like a woman who dislikes a commercial when the woman has to bow to a man because that's not acceptable, but when it would be other way around suddenly it's not sexual. People please don't be this daft!
@Borngis Anyone who cares this damn much about an anime booby game should calm down and consider their priorities.
Chest expanding? Like when you do a bench press for a few weeks? Something like that?
The usual circus in the comments aside (regardless of one's taste for such games or lack thereof, the notion about expecting Fiction to "help" or "undermine" the society on its own definitely takes the cake this time 😂🙄)... didn't past NL coverages state that Z and Life are different entries in the franchise? What I'm googling now suggests as much.
@nhSnork Z and Life should be different entries yeah. Everything I have seen says that too.
All of this controversy is nice and all, but is anyone going to actually talk about the game?
Like, am I the only one who thinks the in-game art is actually pretty good? The 3D models and overworld too. It's so simple, yet so colourful and charming!
I'm not the only one who thinks so, right?
The tiddies are reaching critical mas!
@liljmoore most Senran games arrived on PS4 before the updated censoring policy, that's why their newest Senran Kagura Peach Ball only arrived on Switch and PC
This is pretty tame compared to how ecchi usually goes. People overreact to the smallest thing, it's pretty annoying. How about solving real problems in the world? Anime girls look young, but they're not real people, so we shouldn't hold the same beliefs on them. Take your frustration on the Arabs that sell younger girls to others as polygamy wives, which is a real problem that no one seems to talk about here...
Until those living in the US bible thumper nations realize the 1st amendment trumps your views then you haven't the slightest clue. What fing truly amazing they don't want to first look at themselves before making judgements. And I am talking about those thinking they have the high morals when they in real life don't.
"Collect Omega Power by defeating enemies to grow maiden’s breasts up to Z-Cup"
@liljmoore They're actually censoring the next Senran game. As a result, the producer decided to leave.
So, is 'Life' the same game as 'Z' with some extra stuff? Or is it a different game. (Sorry I confuse easily)
"The game Sony tried to silence" What the hell is that bait title about? The rating board had an issue with it an without that it would be next to impossible to sell the game so Sony just canceled the localization.
Also..yeah..it makes sense they wouldnt approve it and given that Nintendo is family focused im really surprised they are doing it. Kind of seems like a desperate move to get more niche titles on the eshop.
@Rafie Ok..just want to point out its a ratings board issue and not a Sony issue like the click bait titles reads. If ratings boards like PEGI and ESRB dont approve it then it's damn near impossible to sell a game. If the game doesn't receive a rating no retails will even touch the game. Sony really didnt have much choice but to stop localization as it would have become damn near impossible to sell it. This isnt a Sony problem its the rating board.
this comments section is giving me serious deja vu
Still planning to import a physical copy. Almost as expensive to get it from the eShop anyway.
All the girls look exactly the same but with different hair and eye colour
"the game Sony tried to silence". Really? Are we really resorting to that Nintendo Life?
Remember when Binding Of Isaac coming to Wii U/3DS because of 'mature content' was big deal? lol
“The game Sony tried to silence...”
This is such a Buzzfeed level of clickbaiting I can’t even bring myself to think of something clever or disgusted, its ludicrousness just comes around the other way and becomes hilarious.
So big breasts are a status symbol in this game? You are more powerful when your breasts are bigger? What about the men? Are their power based on how big their...
im so getting this wen it comes to the west.........$hut up and take my money!
@Ralizah At least someone gets it. You sound like a smart and down to Earth person, unlike many I've seen on here.
Yes, this game may not be my cup of tea, but who am I to judge anyone if they enjoy these games? Like you said, reality is reality, fiction is fiction. If people aren't smart enough to tell the difference, then they probably shouldn't have a video game console in the first place (and should likely be committed for everyone's safety).
@earthinheritor Nintendo wants more rated m games for switch with less censorship so they can keep attracting every time of gamer to the system a win win for everyone.
@gamer95 wat console wars NL made a point like so many others on the internet that sony is on a trigger happy censorship on their 3rd party games and reason why some of sonys base is getting pissed with them.
@earthinheritor you clearly don't know the truth.
PEGI and ESRB did rate the game as M for US and 18 for EU.
Purely the UK rating board, which in my opinion doesn't make sense as they use PEGI anyhow had a issue, plus Sony started to censor stuff more agressively from that year (many rumors about it why)
I'm not counting the german and australian one, they ban everything they don't like anyhow.
@RiasGremory But there's a limit. You can have M rated games sure but the eshop is already full of mobile phone style games boarded to Switch for several times the price to boost the number of games they claim to have. I love my Switch but just look at most of the weekly sales they have. I love Indie game but the store is full of garbage ports. That isnt a good thing, it make the good games so much harder to find because that's all they promote.
@earthinheritor every console has the issue of bad ports or shovelware, Sony and Microsoft have that issue too and it's nothing new.
It could be worse, the whole Wii library is 3/4th shovelware for example (my own opinion) but the 1/4th part has some great gems.
@Rayquaza2510 What truth? Its in the damn article:
"Original Story: Last year, publisher PQube was forced to cancel plans to release Omega Labyrinth Z on the PS4 and Vita after the Video Standards Council Rating Board refused to classify the title in the UK and other PAL regions due to its sexual depiction of underage girls."
That's seems like a pretty good reason for Sony not to want the game on their system to me. If they dont sell the game people complain, if they do sell the game, the other side complain. No company wants bad press after a game like that has been banned due to that reason.
Same way that when Manhunt was blamed for murder most retailers stopped carrying it for fear of backlash. Sony made the absolute right call in this case.
@earthinheritor thats a really bad excuse from sony they had plenty of those games on their systems way before they went on a censorship trigger happy there no excuse to defend them man.
If there is a physical version, I will have to buy it JUST BECAUSE in 20 years, this game is going to be worth a $1000 due to there being so few copies in existence. There will be millions of copies of Zelda, Mario Kart, Smashbros, etc. There will be a handful of this game, and it will be the "gotta have it complete my collection" item.
By all means, please make more banned games in the future. You're adding to my retirement fund!
Nintendo certainly seems to have a lot of confidence in their "Parental Controls" app.
Good for them.
@Yorumi not every type of these games are not for everyone i get that but it does bring more people to the switch because of them being uncensored while sony keeps driving away some of their 3rd party devs to the switch over their censorship big plus for switch owners.
Awful digital price in Australia. $90? I remember when they had to keep parity with brick and mortar stores or it wasn't fair but now physical games ALWAYS cost less then digital.
Just about everything gets into the eSHop these days, so why not.
Oh man, this getting localized for Switch is VERY satisfying after the way Sony outrageously prevented PQube from distributing a fully localized game in Western territories.
I don't buy most fanservice games, but I'll make an exception for this.
A game for nerdy virgins, if ever there was one.
The game received good reviews from Famitsu. As a collector of Switch physical games, how can I refuse this...titular...entry in the farm sim/rogue-lite genre.
This sounds awful, I'd be ashamed if anyone saw me playing this.
Really Ralizah? I can't see you doing any of that crazy stuff.
What crazy stuff?
Stupid game is stupid
I wonder how many of the people complaining about the school setting in Fire Emblem 3H will have no problem whatosever with a school setting for this game.
@ThanosReXXX so since the minority of people don't like or are against these sort of games I expect this game will sell more than any other game ever released right?
Art is free you're right. The people who largely support these kind of games are the same ones that attack publishers and developers for putting gay bisexual or trans characters in games. You can't have it both ways.
Tell the men upset that Battlefield V had females that art is free. Tell the people upset about the trans character in the Baldurs Gate dlc that art is free. Let's truly free art.
But let's be honest for a moment ok? The minute a game was developed like this with underage looking boys with large bulges that you had to rub to boost their attack none of you would be defending it. Please don't pretend to care about freedom of art. You all just want to look at anime boobs.
@saintayu There's hypocrisy everywhere, people just don't want to admit it.
Oh god. Passing by the comments and someone somehow brought up prostitution. What? Dude, these girls don't exist...
Not my bag but to whomever wants to buy it have at it. I little fanservice never hurt anyone. I vote breast over murder for content that should not be censored. I'm glad Nintendo was like "sure we'll do it".
Don't really car for these games, I like my fanservice but a lot of those games are just....bad. I wished the Switch had an actual Senran Kagura game already. sighs
Oh well, back to playing God Eater 3 and wearing an outfit that shows plenty of sideboobs. lol
It's emblematic of Japan as of right now. They're afraid of personal relationships, so you get this.
I don’t really understand Sony on this. Their consoles have been home to the most violent games for decades yet all of a sudden we’re not mature enough to see some boobies?
I saw the trailer and I am like... what did I just watch? All I got out of it was boobs, making the boobs bigger, and then touching and feeling said boobs. Not so sure about the actual game though, I have no idea what that involves.
@saintayu No offense, but I've literally no idea why you tagged me. And also why so late. It's been more than a month since I made those comments, so I had to re-read all of them to see what I could have possibly said.
I think you misunderstood me, because I'm not the slightest bit interested in this game at all, so I couldn't care less about what it shows or doesn't show. And with that in mind, the rest of your comment makes even less sense, seeing as it seems to imply that I'm somehow advocating against games for people with other gender preferences, which I'm not, so if you're trying to accuse me of hypocrisy, then you've completely missed the point of my comments.
Yeah I watched the trailers...seeing jiggle physics on 2D characters look...weird. Like...was it animated via Photoshop or something? lol
At least Senran Kagura and God Eater physics are in 3D. xD
Lol I'm a highly qualified perv and even this is a bit much.
Why is it just so shameless? Why not try and work the perviness into something more decent? That's what I'd prefer.
Still, glad no-one is stopping them release the thing they wanted to make. Freedom is important.
Should be called Jeffrey Epstein Labyrinth.
Sony.. wtf are you doing? Let the responsibility to the people who are playing the game! It's not up to you to censor stuff. Just put age requirement to purchase and don't be butthurt. Nuff said. I hate it when people are trying to think for others what is best. Just release is as it was meant to! Nuff said
@JayJ It's an dungeon crawler. Think something like Mystery dungeons with boob related minigame stuff.
@nessisonett so you're against censorship except when it's something you'd rather be censored.
Or in other words, you're pro-censorship.
@NorseGamerTommy In that Japanese trailer, the breasts are talking
@gamer95 You do realize you’re posting on a Nintendo-centric site, yes?
@earthinheritor The good games are harder to find more due to the garbage UI. They need to update their eshop interface to accommodate this enormous amount of titles now.
@TeslaChippie There's a subtle difference. When presenting something be it a Twitter message, a Youtube video or a video game, you have to accept the consequences of presenting that message. If you call someone a racist slur, you get prosecuted for hate crimes. If you spread fascist propaganda on Youtube, the video's removed. If you ask Sony to allow your degrading, rather pedo-ish (for want of a better word) game onto their platform, they reserve the right to say no. It's not a question of censorship, it's a question of what Sony deems appropriate to allow on THEIR platform, and it is THEIRS.
This comment session gives me cancer. Thank you.
Its a game people. These are drawings damn it, drawings. Nothing its real. At least japanese people understand that.
Its like say "this game made me commit a genocide because have weapons and scene of violence in it".
Sony: We will continue to censor mature games!
Nintendo: What are you doing?
Time to see people cry and complain about the most stupid things
Gotta love Sony's backwards censorship policy.
It's funny because weren't they saying that the PS5 will be for 'teh hardcor3 gamerz'
@ThanosReXXX because the article was updated today and I didn't notice the date of the comments.
I didn't know they just readded the article to the new ones like that.
@SwitchForce the first amendment protects from government not from private corporation. You aren't entitled to ecchi games because of the Constitution.
TROLLs and their moral lacking is just funny here. Stop trying to push your morals on others unless you want others to see whom you really are for. Far to often people like to moral police when they should first check their own moral police themselves. Censorship in games considering there are more violent games but when boobs pop-out that is offensive and against Moral values. That's a double standard here if you want to be moral then you should also Censor COD, GTA and all those other games but you know it won't happen. .... .WHY.... .this $$$$$$$
That sounds very impractical... wouldn’t they just end up suffering back pain?
@nintendolie That's basically how it's thought to be in real life(in the US anyways). How else would we get the term "Big d**k energy"?
I have no interest in this game whatsoever. Not for the boobs but for the gameplay in general.
But why are some people so scared of boobs? Specially boobs that are just a cartoon...
Last time I checked this was just a video game. You know, fantasy, not real, completely and totally unrelated to any resemblance of reality...
I’ll ask again: why are some people so scared of boobs?
Anime characters aren’t real, aren’t “underaged” (they’re students but could be university students for all I know or care), aren’t a reflection of real people.
Me, I like seeing boobs more than a person being killed. But I guess I’m weird and belong to a “list”.
I love me some double morals and hypocrisy. Killing is good, boobs are bad.
This is just a very niche game and targeted at a very specific and small market.
I really dislike people in the West generalizing Japan as a “pervert” country when in truth it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Don’t talk about what you know nothing about, would you?
@CorvoRevo Many players who aren't comfortable with the idea of ecchi and feel like games like this are derogatory to the idea of what women look like or people who simply find the idea of sexualizing Young girls disturbing don't care if it's fictional. They think it's wrong and anyone who buys or supports it is a pervert/child molester, which of course is not true. Personally, im in the camp for "don't like, don't buy". But these high moral gamers are too stubborn to come to a compromise on the issue.
@maruse This. Even when a girl is of legal age in a game(Lust for darkness) the need to point out how pervy and wrong it is for it to be available for download on the eshop. Meanwhile, Streets of Rogue, a game that has pixelated blood and gore, is rated E10 and everyone is just cool with it.(Granted you can switch it off, but still.) What exactly is the line when it comes to sexuality in games? Should it only be for Adult only games and only available on the dark web? Why is violence celebrated more over love and sex? Are we so scared of the topic being introduced into other media that we have to start crusades to boycott these games from ever getting a release?
What a weird world we live in where Sony is the one that censors and Nintendo is the one that doesn't.
Well...censors suggestive themes.
Intense violence is fun for all ages in the good ol' USA.
@nessisonett I agree with most of what you said here. It’s not the same to say “I understand why the platform doesn’t release the game” and “I’m for censorship of art”.
Sony has the right to do what they please in regards to what games are released on their platform. Nobody questions a restaurant not allowing a patron to enter the premises if they aren’t wearing a shirt. It’s a private company rule that they pass indiscriminately for whoever doesn’t follow it, the guy can walk around his neighborhood and order takeout with his shirt off if he likes.
Personally it wouldn’t bother me if Sony were to release this game, but I’m not going to fight in favor of a game like this. It’s using the bodies of these women in really coarse and offensive ways to validate, not call into question or subvert, the patriarchal “male gaze”.
I will say that I think Sony is being a bit Puritan when they use a lens flare to cover up Trish’s butt in DMCV. It seems like in that case they are coving it up because “nudity is bad” of any kind. But in the case of this game, it makes why they want to distance themselves from it.
I was hoping this would come to the west. Not sure when I'll be able to play it though with all the other games releasing soon. Love the mystery dungeon gameplay style.
@saintayu Ah okay, I actually missed that. Was already wondering about all these new comments...
Yes! Underage girls are tight! 😛
I blame it on higher-higher-ups with no love skillz
@gamekill Could be. But if they're the ones releasing the games to make money, why would they condemn it?
@brandonbwii "FBI OPEN UP!"
@Dakotastomp Uh, you’ve got the wrong house.
@nessisonett you can't murder in society, so we should ban mortal Kombat too then?
If only other companies could be proud of their parental controls as Nintendo....
I think censorship in any shape or form is wrong when it comes to art, but this game just seems creepy and dumb. But if someone enjoys it, who am I to judge?
....And Nintendo allows this to happen?? I thought Nintendo 'was' supposed to be a family-friendly company towards kids and their families.
@KingBowser They are. That's what the parental controls are for.
I came here for the comments and I was not disappointed. Good work everybody and GGs!
@Quarth Thank you! I won't be buying it, but I don't think we should persecute those who enjoy it and aren't child molesters. Don't like, don't buy!
@mauhlin12 Some people just want to watch the world burn.
To each their own I guess
@nessisonett "Societal Progress" is extremely subjective and barley any games are degrading. This type of "scared toxic think" is just something overly sensitive people who think their feelings matter too the world way more than they do, adopt. You should go listen to Quentin Tarantino's thoughts on movie violence askewing reality and causing real-world violence. It's a fairly eye-opening piece. In the same vein as this type of conversation.
@gcunit - As my grandfather said, "I'd rather a loud ass in the field than a quiet Snake in the grass."
You'll know the ass is being an angry one from a distance and keep it that way. Snakes, they don't let you know, and they're in biting distance.
@BenAV exactly. Why people don’t seem to want to use them is beyond me.
Definitely buying this to keep it sealed and sell later on for an "inflated" price. (:
Oh, and I'm in the 'pro tits' camp. Game is very childish though, why is it labeled as mature in any way? Weirdos.
Not sure why people care about this at all? If most people (as I'm sure they do) take the sensible stance that video game violence doesn't cause real life violence, then a bit of videogame sexism and cute anime characters don't cause real life misogyny or peadophilia either. I find people's hypocrisy astonishing. You might find these things distasteful in a game but so what? Just don't play them. The same as I find the constant shooting of people dull in Call Of Duty and don't play them. 🤷♂️
Alas, it's banned from sale ont he eShop in 'Sweden' and 'New Zealand' (like with the Senran Kagura games).
Shame really. I've been kinda interested in this game for a long time now, but I don't see myself bothering to set up another account just to buy it.
