Omega Labyrinth Z Western Release Cancelled After Sony Deemed It Too Obscene

Omega Labyrinth Z has been in the headlines recently as its western release draws near, but this might be the end for it once and for all after the publisher of Omega Labyrinth Z, PQube has shared on Twitter that Sony has now pulled support for the game and they had to comply with the request since they are the platform holder. Omega Laybrinth Z was planned for the PS4 and PS Vita.

Omega Labyrinth Z has already been refused classification in Australia followed by the UK, however, it was still planned for an English localized release in the rest of the markets. The game is already out in Japan and other Asian markets but this is the first time it would have been available to play in English.

The full statement shared by PQube on Twitter can be seen below.

PQube strives to release Japanese content for its fans as close to the source material as possible. In the case of Omega Labyrinth Z, while PQube has worked with all relevant age rating bodies in their respective territories, PQube must respectfully comply with the wishes of the platform holder and have therefore withdrawn any future plans for Omega Labyrinth Z’s European and North American release on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

Let us know what do you think about the decision by PQube and Sony in the comments below.
