“Super Real Mahjong PV” removed from the Nintendo Switch eShop; will be censored via patch
Japanese publisher MightyCraft announced on Monday that they’ve pulled the Switch version of Super Real Mahjong PV from the Nintendo eShop because it was found to be too explicit.
Originally released in 1994 for the SEGA Saturn, Super Real Mahjong PV is a mahjong simulator with stripping mechanics added as a sexy bonus. Despite the game already being censored when compared to the Saturn original, both Nintendo and Japan’s Computer Entertainment Rating Organization (CERO) determined that some of the scenes in the game were still just too damn
hot sinful following the game’s release.
MightyCraft has removed Super Real Mahjong PV from the Japanese eShop and intends to resubmit the game to Nintendo and CERO once the naughty bits are addressed. Niche Gamer has reported that this process is expected to take about a week.
And for those who already purchased and downloaded the uncensored version of Super Real Mahjong PV? The game will be patched for all of them, so yet again, consumers who purchased the product as it was originally intended will have their game forcibly changed whether they like it or not.
Super Real Mahjong PV is the latest game to have sexual content censored via a patch post-release, following other titles such as Street Fighter V and Devil May Cry 5. While the PS4 has clearly been the most censorious platform lately, Nintendo’s Switch has been viewed as a safe haven for mature-themed titles. Here’s hoping that the removal and censorship of Super Real Mahjong PV isn’t the beginning of a new trend on the Nintendo’s hybrid system.
In the meantime, Goddammit.
