Nintendo goes to war against nudity in the world of video games. He wants to ban uncensored “bare breasts”.
Nintendo wants to ban nudity from the Switch eShop
we agree, nudity in video games is an integral part of some games. This is especially the case for hentai style games or adult games. There are also many titles where sex is a real way to bring players back: this is the case in Cyberpunk 2077 for example, or in GTA V.
Basically, it’s “fan service”, yes, but it’s often part of the universe of the game in question. To remove the nudity in these games wouldn’t that distort it? In any case, Nintendo is not of this opinion. The publisher of Mario of Zelda has decided to go to war against “uncensored topless” at video games. and wider, nintendo even want forbid any kind of nudity in games.
In this context, it seems that Nintendo has started with censor games for adults currently published on Nintendo Switch eShop. Indeed, publishers who make adult games with nudity can obviously offer their games on the Switch Store. However, Nintendo now reserves the right to censor the affected titles.

The publisher Gamuzumi is obliged to offer other versions of its games
This is especially the case for game maker Gamuzumi, which specializes in adult games. Upon the release of its new game titled “Hot Tentacles Shoot”, Nintendo was quickly disillusioned and did not appreciate the explicit content at all. According to Nintendo, nudity is too present. The game includes obscene scenes and “uncensored topless”.
In short, obscene content can harm the brand and violate its policies. This means that from now on all games with bare breasts should be censored. And that’s why our Hot Tentacles Shoot game was rejected in the first place. Likewise, our recently announced game, Elves Christmas Hentai Puzzle, was also rejected for nudity. This is the only information we have at the moment, this time we will try to send the games back for validation without the nudity, see what they say or bring news if necessary”said Gamuzumi.
But Nintendo’s eShop policy now states that these games must be effectively censored. A noticeable change in recent days, presumably. For good reason, this was not the case before and Nintendo had to change the thermal pools, without informing users elsewhere.

“Uncensored topless” will be strictly prohibited
As a result, all publishers that make video games with nudity will have to censor their games themselves or risk being banned from the Nintendo Switch store. The latter particularly asked the publishers of style games hentai to deliver a hybrid and alternate version of their games to the Switch Store.
The relevant body parts would therefore be the bare chest (of women apparently). But we can imagine that the scenes that are too explicit, even at the language level, should be skipped. Let’s not even talk about masculine qualities.

Like Nintendo, Twitch is also fighting nudity, but not only…
In a similar vein, know that Twitch has decided to completely ban nudity on its platform. But Twitch also bans live gambling. The nudity ban on Twitch, which has been in effect for many years, was accentuated when the category of lives in which users could show themselves in swimwear (HOT TUB) appeared.
As a result, many channels have surfed the wave to bring back the lost sexy side of Twitch. Sure, when you get banned for a simple exposed nipple during a video reaction, it’s a little hard. Well, know that in addition to nudity, Twitch has decided to ban gambling on the platform. According to her, playing live gambling would be a way to promote it.
