Eastasiasoft has announced the saucy shoot 'em up Waifu Uncovered will be getting a physical release on the Switch in the UK and across Europe on 20th November, courtesy of Funbox Media Ltd.
This particular version of the game will feature the "fully uncensored mode" - as a result, it falls under the adult classification of PEGI 18. It'll set you back £22.83 + shipping, and you can pre-order it right now from Funbox's website.
Here's what Eastasiasoft's project lead Joshua Michael French had to say about this upcoming physical release:
“Waifu Uncovered has been an extraordinary project from the start, combining elements of the shoot’em up genre that we so often champion with mature content that never takes itself too seriously. It’s a bold, fresh and joyfully naughty experience. We felt strongly that it should be preserved in its most complete and definitive form possible, as a physical Nintendo Switch release, and our partners at Funbox Media Ltd have helped make that goal a reality!”
This was the same title temporarily pulled from the Japanese Switch eShop back in July due to an explicit scene in the game.
Once again, this physical release will include the "fully uncensored mode" so you won't have to worry about missing out on anything. Will you be adding this one to your Switch collection? Feel free to tell us down below.

This looks so cheap...
Not a game for me but I’m all for keeping games uncensored
I'm beginning to think anything can get on the eShop....time to start developing my own game.
@Kalmaro I don't think people are buying this for the graphics.
-Well they are, but not in a technical way...
Save that for PS5
@Ainz I know you were joking, but I've seen 5 year old iPhone games being released on the eshop. You probably could release something on it if you really wanted.
A fully uncensored mode you say? 👀
I thought the uncensored mode was in the digital release? The wording of this article implies it is exclusive to the physical edition.
Anyways, think I'll pass on this one...
What strange times we live in...
@Kimyonaakuma I know exactly what people are getting this for, and it really doesn't seem worth the purchase to me.
does it come with pack of tissues
Meanwhile, it appears that SaGa Collection will be censored as reflected in its eShop page, which states that the game has been modified to reflect "changing social/cultural norms", whatever that means.
...........alternatively go and watch porn on the internet!
Enough people bought this for Eastasiasoft to have enough money to print a physical version. Let that sink in. But hey, Nekopara got a physical release so I guess there is a market for these games.
I never quite understood the concept of ecchi being shoehorned into a genre of games that has nothing to do with it. I suppose it's a way to sell a crappy gameplay to Otaku. I'd personally rather watch an anime or read a manga if I was craving saucy.
This ain't no Waifu game
@Rhaoulos Yeah exactly, either make a game with relevant ecchi content or make a good shmup hahaha
So it has tits and fanny in it? 🤣🤣
Bizarre bunkum, ha ha.
@Kimyonaakuma the ps5 isn't even worth it. The X will be the better investment .
@Dirty0814 if you ignore the exclusives, on paper maybe...
@Dirty0814 the X won't get anywhere near the amount of games from japan that playstation and Nintendo do
laughably bad, how and why does it have a physical???
I read that it was not fully uncensored originally on the eshop. The steam version is COMPLETELY uncensored top to bottom, but the Switch version only goes half way (top half) or has a tasteful cover based on the options chosen.
Meanwhile the big publishers are making up reasons why releasing games physically - or at all - on Switch is too expensive, even though they charge the end consumer for their expenses regarding the release, and of course also for their decadent expenses elsewhere, and a big fat profit to make sure they're not making a loss by ordering their driver to take them in their limousine from the night clubs to the brothels, past their usual spot for drugs supply, and home to their mansions when they pass out. The next day, hung over, seeing how much they spent in their "flow", they decide to underpay their workers and rush their next release on a skeleton crew because otherwise their shareholder friends would be upset that their investment didn't pay off within a ridiculously short time.
Or that's how I imagine it goes.
Or even worse: at Nintendo they screw things up so badly that I just got a mail that my pre-order for Mario 3D all stars was cancelled "because they can't reassure that they'll be able to deliver". At this point, I don't know if I even want it anymore, now that all preorders are in the hands of scalpers on ebay even before the game THAT SHOULDN'T BE LIMITED IN THE FIRST PLACE is released.
I don't understand all the hate. This game scored 7/10 on here. And I had fun and laughed a lot playing through it. (Maybe being a gay boy helps) 😂
If I really wanted this stuff I would just go on google images...
So basically the game is going to get an update... but only in physical format. Hm. I understand the physical format is kind of an endangered species at the moment, but physical-only perks might well lend themselves to all kinds of shady shenanigans.
I'm not saying this because of some stupid Rule 34 that can be looked up online, I'm saying this because tomorrow this could happen to a physical-only character for the next Smash, a physical-only mode in the next Mario Kart, or why the hell not, even a physical-only game in Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Just imagine a world where Super Mario Galaxy 2 was only available on game cards.
The art style is very basic and lacks any real character. Skipping this dreck.
Can this be played with one hand?
Asking for a friend.....
Lack of transvestite clowns displeases me.
Oh well, back to xhamster then.... 😒
Do the controls let me play with one hand?
@Lindhardt Sex will always sell
@PapaMurphy If it makes you feel better, there's official art of The burger King making out with Ronald Mcdonald. I wish I was making that up.
glad they're breathing new life into walt disney's finest creation, genitalia
I don't get the hate this game/genre gets on here. It is clearly adult orientated and I'm guessing has a warning of such. As an adult with a partner and a healthy sex life, I sometimes appreciate adult orientated games. There are countless risque depicted characters across a myriad of jrpg's, lovel? Novel games - yet they go oblivious. It's a strange world we live in, where gross gory violence is celebrated yet nudity is despised. Honestly, grow up, maybe put the controller down (and age sensibilities to account), appreciate relationships with rl non-npc people.
@Cool_Squirtle I'm semi-serious. If I had a good concept and the time I'd make something and get it on the eShop.
Anyone know where I can get this? Asking for a friend....
@Kalmaro I'm all for LGBTQ representation, (as I am a part of that group myself), but what the heck. (referring to the Ronald McDonald and Burger King.
Very bad they won't unlock the full uncensored mode for the digital version too. A lot of people supported this game buying the digital one, and now they should get the phisical one for the uncensored mode. And there isn't a dlc for the digital version. Sorry but this is not correct. I'm OK with phisical goodies included with the phisical release, but reserving a game mode only for the phisical is not good imho. I would return my digital copy if I could. Won't buy this.
Where's the version for the gays 😠😠😠
@Lindhardt Yeah, if share a link but I'd rather not, plus, it's easy to find right now.
Didn't want to detail the topic anyway.
Dude, where do I sign up!? /s
i do agree the art style looks weird but it does look fun though with it being uncensored for the physical version.
Hang on it’s £6 on digital or £23 on game card wow that’s switch tax for you!
@Kalmaro that's why it's only 7 bucks. Actually isn't that bad considering.
I'm glad we live in a world where games like this get made and can come out for a console fully uncensored. There shouldn't be any limitations when it comes to art. The game doesn't hurt anyone, those who aren't interested can just ignore it, but there's clearly a market here.
I played the digital version and enjoyed it enough, but I don't see the need to spring for the physical just to see some extra details. But I'm glad the game exists. Bodes well for the future of gaming for those who can appreciate a little NSFW and sex appeal.
Just telling you, as i told some other times: if you input the konami code you get the uncesored version.
@Dirty0814 For value, the Series S and Game Pass is better, but Playstation has way better exclusives.
If you're okay with the violence that permeates all of media these days, I don't want to hear you complaining about something like this. If you think it's okay to have vivid, graphic and realistic scenes of murder, torture, war, and violence of all kinds, don't whine about obviously unrealistic, pseudo-sexual content.
I have no patience for that crap. We live in a world that treats intense violence as perfectly normal but the slightest bit of sexuality as taboo.
If you think a pair of naked boobies is going to far, but it's fine for your 9 year old to play GTA-5, I don't respect you or your opinions.
Fully uncensored...yeah right.
This game is still crap. Uncensored boobs or not.
Held off on trying since I already have Deep Space Waifu on Steam but may give an uncensored physical version a go.
Funbox Media? Someone has a sense of humour...
I guess not being 12 kind of puts me out of the target market of this game?
Is new grounds a thing anymore? Seems to me the better option.
Don't know if my wife will let me buy this!
