Visual Novel ‘Aokana: Four Rhythms Across the Blue’ Will Have All-Ages Version Censored on PS4 for Western Release

PQube and NekoNyan made an announcement regarding the PlayStation 4 release the Sprite-developed visual novel Aokana: Four Rhythms Across the Blue in the west.

The publisher let fans know that the PS4 version in the west will have four scenes modified and three scenes removed. These changes are being applied to the PS4 version only; the Nintendo Switch release will be the full all-ages release. The altered scenes were not shown, but it’s probably the bath and ecchi scenes that show characters in minimal clothing.

Following the announcement, the publisher also let fans know that they will release a poll to see whether or not to have a physical release of the PS4 version or just focus on releasing a physical version of Switch, given the changes.

Aokana: Four Rhythms Across the Blue tells the story of a world where people have the ability to fly through the air using special shoes. Also, a popular sport known as Flying Circus is currently all the rage.

The story follows Masaya Hinata, who was once a prodigy who turned his back on the sport after suffering a defeat, although there is another reason. During the story, his passion ends up being reignited after he finds himself teaching a transfer student, Asuka Kurashina, how to fly.

This will be the all-ages version of the game, but don’t worry their are still plenty of ecchi moments that still occur.
