I don’t like to bring up bad news during weekends, but sadly enough, today is one of those days. You see, I just found out that Marvelous, Meteorise and HONEY PARADE GAMES sexy action brawler “Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni” has been removed from Steam in Australia and Germany. This became known when emo185 posted the following information on Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni’s steam page:
“Hello Everyone, As of today, 10th August 2017, VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI-, VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- Complete Edition and the VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- Complete DLC Pack are no longer available for purchase on Steam in Australia and Germany.VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- was removed for sale in these countries in accordance with local legislation. This announcement does not affect any other country and VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- will continue to be available to purchase on Steam in other countries.
Those who currently own VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- on Steam in Australia and Germany will still be able to play the game from their Steam library. We are currently investigating the possibilities to make VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- available again in these countries.We apologise for any inconvenience caused and we will provide updates when possible.” – emo185 Social Media & Community Manager for Marvelous Games (Europe) & Founder of AnimeBlurayUK.
In other words, players in Germany and Australia can no longer buy “Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni” via Steam…However, emo185 did add the following statement:
“We are currently investigating the possibilities to make VALKYRIE DRIVE -BHIKKHUNI- available again in these countries.”
It’s also worth pointing out that Germany and Australia are well-known for pulling of censorship stunts like this. So I wasn’t all that surprised to hear that “Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni” ended up like it did in those countries. Nevertheless, I still feel sorry for the players in Australia and Germany, because “Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni” is a really good game that’s worthy of your time and money.
And with that said, what’s your take on this matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
