    Although Sony is clamping down on saucy content in PlayStation games, Nintendo appears to be quite happy to leave any censorship decisions to rating systems.

    The Japanese company recently reaffirmed this during its 79th Shareholders meeting, when president Shuntaro Furukawa was reminded about “other platforms” applying restrictions independently of CERO (Japan’s rating organisation). This was his response on behalf of Nintendo (thanks, Censored Gaming):

    Nintendo, as do 3rd-parties and their software, applies for an objective rating from 3rd-party organizations prior to release. If platform-holding companies choose arbitrarily, the diversity and fairness in game software would be significantly inhibited. We provide parental controls that can be used to apply limits.

    As noted, parental controls can also be used to restrict younger players from accessing mature-themed content.
