The listing for a controversial video game has been removed after being accidentally uploaded to the Nintendo online store.

Don’t Get Caught was marketed as “a silly and scary first-person stealth game with a twist”, with content that “includes scenes of sexual activities which are inappropriate for younger audiences”.

In it, players control a character who must pleasure themselves in the back seat of a car without the driver noticing.

While the game was not available to purchase while it was listed on the Nintendo eShop – its release date was marked as 13 July – many gamers took to social media to voice their indignation at the game, and at the apparent lack of quality control oversight by Nintendo.

“What were you thinking allowing this?” asked one commenter on Twitter.

Another remarked that it was “baffling it made it on there”.

In the comments underneath the game’s trailer on YouTube, others were weighing in about the ethics of the game. “This is a disgrace,” wrote one person.

Don’t Get Caught‘s official synopsis reads: “You hitchhike a ride and then travel with a driver and a creepy doll. During the ride you have this crazy sensation to do something inappropriate. But remember – Don’t Get Caught!”

The game’s developers, Ultimate Games, revealed to Nintendo Life that the game was uploaded by “accident”, and there are no plans to release the game on the Nintendo Switch.

While some adult-rated games are released on Switch, many of the console’s most popular games are suitable for children.
