The PS4/Switch version of Cosplay Love!: Enchanted Princess is the Teen rated version of an AO rated PC game so is missing all the steamy stuff.

A launch trailer for the game "Amazing Princess Sarah" was just published on the official Playstation Youtube channel and someone on the comments said the cover art was censored. It's true, the game's art on Steam is more revealing. Not sure if there's more censored content but at least the cover art is.

 

Thanks for the heads up. I've added it to the 'Out of Game Censorship' list. If it turns out there's in-game censorship, I'll add it to the main list as well.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I've added it to the list. And even if it's "obvious" that the console version is censored, it still belongs on the list. I'll add any console release of a VN that has an official 18+ patch on PC when I'm made aware of it.

 

The problem is that a list like that can get quite large to the point it might as well have a separate list just for console ports of eroge.

Also what would list include?
Any eroge at all that has a console version? What if the console version is the only way to play it in English with the original PC version having no English translation (official or fan)? Do we count the console port even if it never left Japan?
Do we count remakes that were designed from the ground up to be all ages such as the PS3 remake of Tears to Tiara?

Console ports also often get additional content which means there is no definitive version. Get 18+ for the adult content and miss out on later additions or play the all ages port for the additional story content but lose the adult stuff?

Maybe, but I don't see the point in separating them yet.

Any eroge that has a toned down console release can be included on the list, yeah. It doesn't matter if the console release is the only way to play it in English or if it never left Japan so long as the proof that it's censored is easy for me and other English speakers to understand (like a comparison of CG's).

 

Remakes can be included, yeah. I already have Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen on there as an example. And it doesn't matter if the remake has more content. If they're similar enough to the point where a direct comparison can be made, then I'll put it on the list.

The trophy list just appeared on this site and, interestingly enough, the same artwork is used uncensored for the trophy tile that you will see from your console.

So was it only censored for the trailer? Why bother then.

Yeah, that's odd. I had a look on the store though and it's using the censored version of the artwork. Same thing with the game icon, so I think it's fine to stay on the list.

Skullgirls is getting censored in the near future but if the comments section of this article is to be believed (take the comments with a pinch of salt), it has been censored twice already: https://nichegamer.com/skullgirls-valentine-gets-redesign-remove-crosses/

 

Yeah, there's a Censored Gaming video about some of the other censorship. I feel like I knew a lot of this stuff, but I guess I overlooked it when putting the list together. But anyway, I've added the censorship mentioned in that video along with what was mentioned in that article you linked to the list.

Pussification of America continues, in the future, babies will have their spines removed after birth.


Worse.

 

They’ll find a way to eliminate the need for man and woman to have children. Babies will be made in a laboratory, genetically modified. They will have no exposure to the outside world because hey…. we already spend all our time behind an electronic screen. 
 

They won’t have any concept of critical thinking or how to approach views that are different than their own. 
 

This is no accident. This is all planned and carefully executed by the ruling elite.

Regarding that Yakuza 4 actor who got ruined by the tabloids allegations of him doing cocaine, it turned out that he was just eating a type of children's candy - as per witnesses there.

 

https://soranews24.com/2016/12/05/japanese-actor-accused-of-using-cocaine-may-actually-have-been-eating-little-girls-candy/

 

But by the time the ugly momentum was ignited against Hiroki Nariyama, people were out to smear him as hard as possible and started rumours questioning his heterosexuality. So yeah....apparently the censored recast for Yakuza 4 is all based on malicious lies and homophobia.

Funny, i was discussing about this a day or two ago in another forum, we were talking about copyright issues concerning hypothetical re-releases of Onimusha 2 and the main character having the likeness of some late Japanese actor...

I just received my physical copy of this and can confirm that the physical box art is censored as well:

So what's the word on the Nioh Collection on PS5? 

 

In Japan, you're able to buy each game individually. If launched in English settings, does the game still suffer from reduced blood/gore?

Could be wrong, but I believe the more extreme gore and dismemberment were actually added for (or at least exclusive to) the Western versions of those games. Don't quote me on that though.

I ask because some Japanese games (even Team NINJA's past titles) boot up without the restrictions if the game is launching in a different language other than Japanese.

Probably not due to the cero D rating, human dismemberment would give it a cero Z rating (regardless of language), which afaik anyway, is the only thing different about the Japanese version (yōkai dismemberment is still present). But again, don't quote me on that.

I remember that Ninja Gaiden Sigma on PS3 censored decapitations in the European and Japanese versions. So its not just Japanese but also Europe. Only the N. American version was uncensored.

Legend Of Arcadieu 1&2 coming to PS4/5

 

https://gamuzumi.com/games.php?id=arcadieubundle

 

Both have 18+ patches on steam

 

Asking the publishers if there's any further content differences between PS and Switch

 

Thanks, I've added it to the list. Gamuzumi are usually upfront when the PlayStation versions of the games they publish have additional censorship, and since it's not mentioned on the game's page, I would imagine it's identical to the Switch version. Still, it doesn't hurt to inquire about it. Feel free to follow up if they get back to you.

I was "bearing" with the Ecchi content beeing mostly removed by Sony. But what bothers me is the Gore and Violent games in general, like Visage beeing censored when the PS4 isn't and PS5 is... Martha is Dead, and probably some other tittles. Sony is being the american Sony in Sexual content and being the Japanese Sony in Gore content. Since in Japan very explicit gore is not welcome there. 

 

And the Sexy being toned down is already a thing i don't appreciate, but now seeing the gore stuff also beeing affected really really bothers me... A lot. I love horror games, it's my favourite genre, and now having to deal with it is really bothering me because of the money and time invested on my PS account, and the games i still have to play in it. Visage on PS5, Martha is Dead, Doki Doki, and probably some others that i just don't understand... Sony is trying even harder to make the PS5 a platform for kids? Since it's weird Visage is uncesored on PS4 but is on PS5? It just bothers me. For now it's just cutscenes. And few dialogs. But i fear we will start having Levels of Resident Evil 2 Remake censorship like in Japan or worse, like it comes to mind. 

 

And also a game i covered here, The letter: A horror visual novel. That is another horror game censored...  

 

Sony kinda did this with the PS3 on the west with the Sexy games, you barely had none here to be honest, but you had loads of them in Japan. But They were never localized. Only the AAA get some free pass in this, maybe Resident Evil and some other mainstream horror games, it's a real shame. 

 

But i think these are phases, this is the Cooky Sony of the PS3 era. And also Jim Ryan and Commie fornia headquarters. When times change they will also change, Nintendo changed, Sony will eventually with a different leadership, beacuase when Xbox picks up the pace and Sony starts to loose they will start allowing stuff. It happend with the PS3 era will happen in the futute, it's just how things are... For now, we still have to show our discontent with it and play on PC or the Switch these niche games. 

 

Sorry for the offtopic.
