    I suspect they have probably put in an english translation in order for it to be refused a UK certification; so at this point in time they could just roll out an asian release with english subs, the amount of attention the game has gotten here due to the fact it's been refused means it's still worth making this sellable in one way or another?

    hopefully!

    I think there’s only 2 realistic options, if all the work is done and they can’t release it in the West, it’ll get a asian English. It could be the exciting vita game play Asia were hinting at

    Otherwise I think it’s just not happening at all.

    Trying to recall any similar situation to this in the past

    Damn that sucks. That's good on pqube's part for cancelling it outright rather than have a censored version though. Hopefully they can work out a deal with Play-Asia or Sony's Asian division.

    Seriously, this is all because Sony doesn't deem the game fit for their platforms? And they gave PQube the runaround, letting them invest their time, effort and money into localization, marketing, rating approvals (where applicable...) etc. instead of just saying "we cannot have this flagrant danger to the moral values and mental health of our youth be associated with our family-oriented branding in the West" before all that.

    I mean, a publisher surely can't just start promoting games coming to Sony platforms without having green light from Sony upfront? So they must have been okay with the game at some point I would suppose. Too bad there won't be any more official details.

    They seem to be hinting at a possible Steam release in the comments, so we might get to play it in English in some way at least.

    Something just doesn't add up here. They clearly state it rated Mature with ESRB and 18 with PEGI. Surely neither of those are grounds for cancellation. Isn't PEGI 18 the Pal/UK version of ESRB's Mature rating? There's more to this than "complying with the platform holder."

    I wasn't planning to get this but after how things have turned out I hope this gets an Asian English release so I can give 2 fingers to the SJW who ruin it for everyone else. Will go nicely next to Dead or Alive that hasn't been played yet either.

    Hmmm... In this sense, the American ratings system is a little better than the PEGI one. You guys have an AO rating, which a clear divisive line between console-friendly and not. We don't really. There are several 18+ games that were fine on the platform, but actual pornography is also merely 18+. Getting an 18+ rating is thus ambiguous regarding it being console-friendly or not.

    They say however not that the ratings boards were at fault, but that the platform stopped it. This makes me think that Sony made an exceptional decision to refuse this on their platform.

    Further, they say a Western release, which pretty much means Europe (minus Eastern Europe, typically) and its predominantly white (ex-)colonies, which means Australia is off as well. Although I'd laugh my bum off if it'd be an Australia-only release.

    I have still a sliver of hope for an Asian English release though!!

    Edit: see this!


    They're playing with our hopes again! xD

    Play Asia showing willing to try help. Where there’s a will there’s a way.

    Not holding out any hope for this but you never know.

    Actually is the other way around. What's mature? 16, 18, 21? Adulthood in most european countries is established at age 18 so having a +18 pegi should basically mean that the game comes as it is, sadly that's never like that because of stupid political issues and morals.

    PQube have been liking a lot of post in response to Play-Asia offering a hand doing an Asian release. I reckon they're game but until we see something more concrete I'll presume this DOA

    It would be nice if PA could pick it up but I would assume the release is dead as well. Their release are already the best quality copies by a mile, so it would be interesting to see what they would do with it if they did.

    Nah, what I mean is that it is more clear in terms of what is allowed on PlayStation and what isn't. In the US, that's incredibly clear: M is allowed, AO isn't. In the EU, it's less clear: 18+ is sometimes allowed, sometimes not.

    Also, I like the non-age system better, then parents can decide for their children what fits best, without mindlessly sticking to arbitrarily chosen ages. I think in that sense the mature rating shows that there will be adult-like themes, but there will not be any explicitness. In that sense I think it also beats the PEGI system in that it is more descriptive, rather than relying on people's average idea of what is okay at what age.

    Partly no.

    If the cast had let's say males, females and maybe some fantasy creatures between 16 and 80 years old that would be nice, I'm totally in for variation in characters.

    The concept of male only or female only cast is being milked too much, especially in japanese games like this.

    I agree. I liked the first Hyperdimension Neptunia in concept, but when I realized it quickly became a series aimed at otaku with maybe two or three male characters in the entire series, I quickly gave up on it.

    I would play Saggy Boob Dungeon though. :D

    I insist, I disagree by a mile.
    +18 is for adults, not based on some arbritary and subjective criteria such as "mature". What's mature? What's a teen? What's a tween? etc...
    The mere coexistence of "AO"/Adult Only and "Mature" is truly ridiculous as they are supposed to be the same and they are the same in Europe. In fact, the "X" rating is purely used for porn and that's it, everything else is +18 at most.
    PEGI keeps it simple and clear with a color and age code, the main problem is the misconception of videogames being toys.

    You are saying it yourself though: 18+ is for adults. The word adult is much more explanatory than the age of 18. Some people can be considered adult at 16, whereas others may be considered barely mature at 16. That's why I think the descriptive terms work better. We can ascribe the terms as we see fit, and it leaves it more open. Whereas the idea that someone is an 'adult' by 18, and that is why 18+ means for adults makes 1) the explanatory value of the 18+ supervene on that of the term 'adult' so that it doesn't actually add any descriptive power, and 2) ties adulthood to a fairly arbitrarily chosen age that simply doesn't map onto most individuals.
