Nintendo goes to war against nudity in the video game world. 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 particularly the case for hentai-style games or games for adults. There are also many titles in which sex is a real way to bring players back: this is the case in Cyberpunk 2077 for example, or in GTA V.
In short, 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 be distorting it? In any case, Nintendo is not of this opinion. The publisher of Mario or Zelda has decided to wage war on “uncensored topless” in video games. And more broadly, nintendo even wants to forbid any form of nudity in games.
In this context, it seems that Nintendo has started to censor adult games which are currently published on Nintendo Switch eShop. Indeed, publishers who make adult games with nudity can obviously offer their games on the Switch store. But, Nintendo now reserves the right to censor the titles in question.

The publisher Gamuzumi obliged to provide other versions of its games
This is particularly the case for the game creator Gamuzumi, which specializes in adult games. Upon the release of its new game entitled “Hot tentacles Shoot”, Nintendo was quickly disillusioned and did not appreciate its explicit content at all. According to Nintendo, nudity is too present. The game contains, among other things, obscene scenes and “uncensored topless”.
“Basically, obscene content could 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 got rejected in the first place. Similarly our recently announced game, Elves Christmas Hentai Puzzle, was also rejected due to nudity. This is the only information we have at this time, we will try to send the games back for validation without the nudity this time, 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 baths, without informing users elsewhere.

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

Like Nintendo, Twitch also goes to war against nudity, but not only…
In the same vein, know that Twitch has decided to completely ban nudity on its platform. But also, Twitch also prohibits live gambling. Already in place for many years, the ban on nudity on Twitch was accentuated when the category of lives where users could show themselves in swimsuits (HOT TUB) appeared.
As a result, many channels have surfed the wave to bring back the lost sexy side of Twitch. It’s sure that when you get banned for a simple visible nipple during a video reaction, it’s a bit 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.
