Nekopara Vol. 1 removes setting and alters imagery for its PS4 launch
Neko Works newest visible novel/recreation Nekopara Vol. 1 arrived on PS4 this week, with the cat ‘n’ cake title making the leap from PC and Nintendo Swap to Sony’s black field, permitting PS4 gamers to get their paws on the title. And they’re none too happy with it.
In line with Sony’s new coverage of firming down visible novels – and different closely sexualised content material, alterations have been made to the PS4 port of Nekopara Vol. 1. This contains the removing of a slider that will increase… nicely… “bounciness”, in addition to censoring the “Bathing” photographs, achieved by including further steam to the scenes deemed seemingly too steamy.
Nekopara’s “petting mode” stays intact, however PS4 Nekopara followers are sad with the modifications, significantly because the Nintendo Swap launch handed with out reduce. (As an apart, it is baffling to somebody like myself, who grew up within the early ’90s, to learn a narrative the place Nintendo did not censor one thing, however different console giants did.)
Followers are making their ideas heard on social media and by way of an web petition. Nekopara Vol. 1 is on the market now on PS4, PC and Nintendo Swap.
