Publisher Mighty Craft announced today that they are temporarily removing Super Real Mahjong PV from the Japanese Switch eShop. This was done due to a request from Nintendo, as the game insufficiently censors nudity and as such conflicts with its current age rating. The Japanese video game age rating agency CERO expressed similar concerns. A patch is currently in the works which will properly censor the respective scenes in the game; Super Real Mahjong PV will then be available again on the eShop. This patch is expected to be ready sometime next week.
