PQube cancels Omega Labyrinth Z western release on PS due to disagreement with Sony over sexual content

Forums - Gaming Discussion - PQube cancels Omega Labyrinth Z western release on PS due to disagreement with Sony over sexual content

What's exactly the content? Sex?

EDIT: read the OP wall text, and lol.

"In another mini-game, players are required to "fondle" a woman's chest to stimulate the growth of a crystal rod found between her breasts."

Seems like pretty standard Japanese mobile game-esque 'touch' mechanics with some girls moaning and fanservice hotspring steam shots. Nothing terrible, but likely had some loli characters which is hard to push through globally.

I've seen enough Japan anime to know that when they sexualize a 10 year old, she looks like she is 18 minimum, 90% of the time.

Really hoping this is sarcasm. Otherwise I don't think you've seen hardly any anime.

Anime, like video games comes with box art so I can tell if said anime is about elementary school girls or not. Yes I know there is a ton of completely pedophile anime out there, but also 99% of anime woudl probably be considered pedophilia if you took their ages seriously. I mean look at the huge big famous ones like One Piece or Naruto. They completely sexualize some of the females who are not 18 years old. But without someoen stating their ages, they could also pass for being 20 something. 

I decided to watch a trailer for this game, hoping my recommended in youtube doesn't get too pervy now, and besides one girl I saw, the rest are easily passable for older than 18 if the localization changes the text. And even the one I did see that looked a tad young, she did not look elemtary school young. It wouldn't cause an uproar if they changed her age too. They could just cut her pervy content and upset the 20 people who would have purchased this game as well. 

But I know Xenoblade chronicles X in its localization changed Elma's age to 18 from like 15 or 16 from Japan. Can't recal if they changed the little girls age, but whatever they changed it to, it was not over 18 and thsu they basically gave her undershirts, lol.  But she could have passed for 18 as well, she didn't look any younger than many 18 year olds right now. if not told their ages in game, I woudl have thought she was 18 and elma like 25 or something. Maybe its me being the age I am, but most 18 year olds look young as fuck to me.  I would feel like a pedo if i hooked up with one. 



Im not a fan of the series (nor have i ever even played one of their games) but its a shame they couldnt release the game as they wanted it, in my case im not against sexually mature content on consoles (we do have the ESRB so parents can check up on what games they let their kids play and which they should avoid).

Also to me its just weird that Sony demanded the game to tone it down despite the fact that the ESRB approved the game, but i will admit that i have no idea how "sexy" this game is so i cant really judge wether it warranted the censorship or not.



It's likely that Sony demanded to tone the game down so that it could be released in areas where it was refused classification, like UK/Australia/Germany/etc.

I agree, censorship is definitely not good, if it has a mature rating just sell it to adults and that's it.

That said, went to watch it, and there are two points.

First, the girl I saw definetely looked like an adult.

Second, it was a mini-game where a oval shaped crystal is between her breasts and you have to mess around with them to estimulate the crystal to grow between them, in the shape of a sausage, changing colors from purple to red until it glows and turn white... LOL

There are already games with that same mechanic on the Vita (i remember a pirate loli game a couple of years ago in which you also rub their breast by touching the screen in order to grow their boobs), but maybe it never realeased(?)...  i dont keep up with those sorts of games.

But i do know there is a game on the Vita (i think it was called Prisioner Girls or something like that) where you do indeed rub their bodies in order to punish them, and its pretty sexual (not to mention the girls are practically little girls).

And here is another game with the exact same gameplay function (called Mary Skelter) also on the Vita. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPuvqOpmw68

So that sort of thing isnt new on the platform but it seems Sony aint having none of that anymore.

Rubbing them is not new indeed.

Rubbing a pair of breasts to make a crystal in the shape of a sausage between them until it eventually gets large and all white... yeah, that's very damn new lol

Its just funny because lets be honest its not that different, i mean they were completely OK with games where you fondle little girls bodies (for whatever reason) with them moaning and everything but i guess the sausage in this one is where they draw the line.



This type of game is common in Japan (which is why it got released in Japan) but some western countries like USA are fairly conservative about nudity and sex.
You can show a man getting his head blown off with a shotgun, but not boobs.
European countries are generally more the other way around. Less heads exploding and more nudity. But this game seems to have elements of suggestive sex acts.
An 18+ rating would seem more appropriate for this. But maybe they think that will alienate too many potential customers? I don't know.
