Who would have thought that for this console generation the Nintendo Switch would be home to slightly racier content than the PS4? Omega Labyrinth is proof of that.

Dungeon crawler Omega Labyrinth was released on the PS Vita in 2015, telling the story of Aina, who hoped to increase the size of her bust. By defeating enemies, she could get bigger breasts.

The latest game in the series, Omega Labyrinth Life, is headed to the Nintendo Switch and PS4, with once again, a larger bust as the goal. The main mechanics in both games are the same, but as pointed out by Hachima and Siliconera, the Nintendo Switch version has more fan service than the tamer PS4 release, which is described as the version you can play at your parents’ house.

The Switch version has destructible armour illustrations while the PS4 one will not. Also, the “touch” events and the “Paper-Rock-Scissors-Boobs” mini-game will be in the Nintendo release, but not in Sony’s. While the PS4 version does have hot springs scenes, the imagery won’t be as explicit as on the Switch.

Both games are rated Cero D, which is ages 17 years old and up in the U.S. However, the PS4 release is about $20 cheaper. Guess that’s what fanservice is going for these days. 


    • We’ve known for a while that American SJW pearl-clutchers are running Sony’s approvals process. I guess it’s a little surprising that Nintendo is chasing the Otaku crowd so hard when they are essentially a captive market after the discontinuing of the Vita. Maybe all the Japanese approvals people who worked for Sony got the shits and started working for Nintendo? 😛

      • Oh dear gawd do you listen to yourself? So glad the only white first world issue that affects you is being allowed to play with preteen anime boobies. Western culture indeed.

        • I just happen to believe that refusing classification of such games does nothing to ‘protect the children’ and I don’t judge people who like and play that type of game.

          • I was tempted to reply to the above.. and then realised its a guest account. So no realpoint responding to that..

            But I find it slightly ironic how the acusation is making it look like the issue is “white male first world problem” when its technically more of an asian/jp problem since this is basically western sensibilities over riding stuff japan has no issues with…

    • Conker was tamed down for Xbox compared to Nintendo 64. GameCube release of BMX XXX had stripper videos with no censoring like on Sony. It’s not unprecedented.

      • @zambayoshi too:
        I know it’s nothing new I’m just getting a chuckle out of the most infamously child friendly company suddenly not being the most strict.

        If I’m being honest the whole thing has been pretty stupid.
        I’m not one for buying these sorts of games but things like censoring Lady’s arse in DMC5 just made me shake my head.

      • The difference here is most of that stuff has never really affected the Jp region releases where a lot of fan service and the like were common on Sony consoles..

        The fact that thus internal censorship is now even affecting original releases from the land of otaku is whats realky jarring.. im actually very interested how this would affect their sales in the homeland where fan service is par for the course…

  • So what does this mean for the Australian classification? The original was refused classification but with the changes to the PS4 version does it mean that could change?

    • Depends. The publisher can resubmit it as a new game. It would be weird if it got accepted as R18+ (LOL) on PS4 but RC on Switch. My guess is the PS4 sales in Australia would be negligible, so I’d be mildly suprised if they re-submitted just for PS4.

    • Youre confusing this jp sequal to the original cancelled release.

      The first game was a ps4/vita only game from D3 and was going to be ported over until the prudes at Sony literally blocked its english release.

      Whether these sequals make it out of jp is another story..

  • All games should be available online, and a local physical version if you have an ID, if you are buying a 18+ game for your kids (or under-age in general), it is your own fault. I’m sick of not being able to buy games in general just because of an invalid release due to content. Hell go look at Steam and tell me that high sexual content games don’t exist. (higher then any console game I’ve seen anyway)
