Of the Big 3 in the video game console market, Nintendo is obviously the most family-friendly provider around. That being said, it does not mean the Big N is liable to shy away from games for older audiences. More violence and suggestive content could be on its way to the Nintendo Switch soon, according to multiple developers quoted in The Wall Street Journal.
“It was a surprise that the Nintendo we know so well allowed outside developers to release such games for the Switch.” — Kaori Nishioka, web designer
Nishioka references upcoming releases including Bethesda’s DOOM and Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon, which features scantily clad women in an action RPG.
“[Nintendo] was passive until now, but that is no longer the right word to describe its stance today.” — Anonymous executive
Games like Gal Gun 2, in which the player takes aim at young girls with pheromones, are also on the way to the Switch. This surprised developer Inti Creates.
“I thought it wouldn’t be possible to release such a game for the Switch, but surprisingly, Nintendo gave me positive feedback.” — Takuya Aizu, chief executive of Inti Creates
