NSFW Nintendo Switch Games Banned For Uncensored Nudity

Apparently, Nintendo has decided not to allow any uncensored nudity in Nintendo Switch games. In 2022, it’s relatively easy to bring your game to a massive platform, as developers large and small have access to publish their game on digital stores like Steam, Nintendo eShop, and more. This has resulted in a lot of clutter in some of these stores with many low quality pages cluttering up the stores. However, it has also allowed many other developers the opportunity to make the games they want to make and put them in front of a large audience if gamers can find them. Some developers have used this to make games that other big developers wouldn’t dream of making, including titles that feature aggressive amounts of nudity and hentai.

While it’s a bit more chaotic on Steam, Nintendo has seen several of these types of games appear on the Nintendo Switch and doesn’t seem happy about it. As detected by Nintendo Everything (via Kotaku), game publisher Gamuzumi noted that he had submitted his new games Elves Christmas Hentai Puzzle Y hot tentacle shooter to Nintendo for review and were rejected. Gamuzumi wrote on Twitter that Nintendo no longer allows “uncensored boobs” and that “obscene content” could damage the family brand that Nintendo has curated. Gamuzumi is looking to release a censored version on the Nintendo Switch, but has yet to submit it for approval. The publisher also stated that this will likely affect other developers and publishers as well.

It’s unclear if this is an outright ban against nudity and other NSFW content or if it will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Perhaps if it is kept to a relative minimum, Nintendo will accept it, but that remains to be seen. Kotaku reached out to Nintendo for clarification, but received no response. Only time will tell if this ends up impacting other games, especially now that bayonet 3 is weeks away from its release on Nintendo Switch.
