    Fall 2018 was when RPG fans were due to get their hands on Super Neptunia RPG, a sidescrolling turn-based game featuring the quirky cast of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. Unfortunately, the game was delayed at the last second, pushing it back to a tenuous "spring 2019" window. Now, we're facing the same situation once more, as Super Neptunia RPG's launch date has been changed to summer 2019, meaning a delay of almost a full year for the localization alone. To make up for that, Idea Factory International has announced that the game will be coming to Steam at the same time as the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch versions. An exact reason for the delay was not disclosed, but the company did mention that the game will be modified in the west, but only on the PS4. Two CG scenes from the Japanese version have been "slightly censored" to comply with Sony's rules, though this will be the only change from the original release. Those playing on Nintendo Switch and PC will be unaffected by this.

    That awkward moment when Nintendo is more lax than Sony about content in games.

    Such strange times we live in... Nintendo getting smarter about the world and Sony falling into some Old Nintendo-ish market leader mindset.

    Yeah I'm sure it has everything to do with the "perceived age" of chibi-type characters in anime/manga and associated games. Probably scenes with some very partial nudity. Absolute bull if you ask me, even despite the fact that it isn't my favorite aesthetic choice.

    Isnt the majority of the censorship due to characters being despicted as minors? Anyway, have fun watching your weeb porn in games, probably one of the resorts of nintendo to keep the switch relevant.

    Tbh it's worth Sony "slightly censoring 2 CGs" so I can sit back and see how salty nerds get over something so pointless.

    Sony has gone full retard in recent years but people really need to pick their battles sometimes. Or not, it's a lot funnier if you don't I suppose.

    Ruh oh. SOME people going to be awfully upset that the underage girls are getting an age raise and more clothes put on them. If the censorship of that sort of thing bothers you, there's a place called the dark web and a browser called Tor that I'm sure you'd find a lot of pleasure in. Sickos.

    Sometimes I'm glad I'm primarily a Switch/PC gamer.

    I don't think anyone is absolutely losing their shit over this, more just calmly stating their displeasure with censorship as a whole.

    Maaaan what the fuck. The game is finished, why is the localization taking SOOOO long? On the other hand, summer is the best time for release..assuming it's before / during my vacation at least.. Looks like a really nice game. Always hype for some new Nepnep
