The Super Real Mahjong series debuted in Japanese arcades during the 1990s. The series has previously appeared on Nintendo hardware, such as the Game Boy Advance. This latest release is a port of the game’s fifth entry, which also got a Sega Saturn port in 1995. For the Switch version, the arcade game’s original nudity was edited out with beams of light.

But as Hachima Kikou points out, the beams don’t quite censor everything.

Mighty Craft Co., the folks behind the Super Real Mahjong series, issued an official statement, saying the entire game is being checked, corrected and sent to Nintendo for re-examination. If everything goes according to plan, the game will be patched next week.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.
