Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni has been removed from Steam in Australia and Germany

I (Robin Ek, TGG) just found out that Marvelous, Meteorise and HONEY PARADE GAMES sexy action brawler "Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni" has been removed from Steam in Australia and Germany :S

The story is too old to be commented.

I feel sorry for the gamers in Germany and Australia...

I could be wrong, but I think it's the same deal for New Zealand. So I bet that they import a lot of games from Japan as well (or Hong Kong for that matter)..

TGG_overlord257d ago

I've been told that New Zealand is pretty much as bad as Australia is when it comes to stuff like this, yes.

Almightsponge256d ago

Australia is very bad. Nz is fine with games. I cant think of a game were we received a censored version or the game was banned in NZ

SaveFerris256d ago

I remember Gal*Gun was banned in NZ.

Almightsponge256d ago

@saveFerris you're right, hadn't heard about that. Currently 9 games banned in nz: criminal girls: invite only, gal gun, manhunt 1 &2, postal 2 &3, rapelay, 3 sisters story and reservoir dogs. And aussie is around 32 titles according to wiki

Just check out the comments on Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni's Steam page, and I understand that people are angry. Because I feel like everyone should be able to buy and enjoy the game no matter where you live ("if" you are old enough to play the said game in question).

Almightsponge256d ago (Edited 256d ago )

It is available in NZ

It's no wonder why game imports are so important to the folks in Germany and Australia. In the matter of fact, I know quite a few people from Australia that import tons of uncensored (and banned) games from Japan every year.

TGG_overlord257d ago

Imports will most likely rise over time I bet.

Fist4achin257d ago

Thats a bit of a stinker. I would think there are a lot bigger things going on in society to be concerned about than a video game that shows a little skin.

In Germany they have unisex showers and in Australia they have nudity on basic television but this gets banned? O_O
