The Massage Freaks game was removed from the Eshop and postponed indefinitely, possibly because its sensitive content touched the Hinatazaka 46 idols.
Recently, we have shared with you information about an interesting NTR-music game called Massage Freaks, in which the gamer is a massage therapist specializing in relieving stress for young girls or beautiful women by his hands. This game is expected to be released on Switch on August 4. But less than a week before the release date, the game was removed from the Nintendo Eshop.
According to information from the Automaton site, after the game was announced, it was realized that the names of the characters in the game were very similar to the names of the members of the Japanese idol group Hinatazaka 46. Soon after, the gamers took responsibility. It was difficult to find out that NSX qureate played the trick when renaming the characters in the game playing a bit like Hinatazaka 46, for example, Mukuni Haruyama changed to Yurine Haruyama.
Not only was it discovered to put the names of idols into the game to satisfy sick pleasure, sexual assault acts in Japanese massage establishments were also mentioned and compared with this game. Maybe these are the reasons why the qureate maker had to postpone the game indefinitely, although they did not give a reason why. It is known that the game pre-orders on Eshop have been refunded and with this momentum, it will be a long time before Massage Freaks officially returns.
You might be a little shocked to see how sick this NSX is, but the qureate itself is no stranger to similar sex scandals. At the beginning of 2022, their towering game Duel Princess was also removed from Steam and Switch eShop, qureate also did not reveal the reason, but anyone who plays this game will not be surprised. This game has pretty average graphics, but there are ragged scenes located somewhere very close to the 210 category.
Duel Princess is now back on PC, but gamers definitely won’t be able to find it on Steam, but can only buy it from “special” consumables distribution channels. That could be the future of Massage Freaks.
