    I've been wondering how games on the Switch have been doing. I haven't really been following it that much, but also am surprised to see the lack of censorship complaints. Has Nintendo become more lax with their games for this console? From what I have seen, it doesn't seem they are marketing to children as heavily as they have in the past and I think that's one reason the censorship got so bad. What's your views on this?

    The system hasn't been out long enough for them to really censor anything. Its too early to say if they're going to be more relaxed with this platform.
    Also I think Nintendo prides itself on being family friendly. I don't think they'd change that just because their new console is being marketed as being for everybody.

    I mean I guess, but it's still surprising not to be hearing a lot of these Nintendo exclusive titles being hit. Like I've heard BOTW is slightly more darker in its content.

    The censorship concerns involving Nintendo primarily involve games where Nintendo itself had a say in developing/publishing them.

    It doesn't necessarily mean it'll automatically happen to a game just because it's released on a Nintendo console. Just look at all those Senran Kagura games on the 3DS.
