Developer Movie Games Lunarium and publisher SimFabric revealed the latest edition of their controversial horror adventure, Lust for Darkness: Dawn Edition. Unlike what you would initially think, it doesn't feature any additional content or even improved visuals. Back in July 2019, the title was removed from Nintedo's North American Switch eShop despite staying within the European shop as usual with its 18+ rating.

The toned down edition was tweaked to remove some overly sexual content and reduce its suggestive content just enough to warrant a lower ESRB rating. After successfully attaining the lesser rating, Lust for Darkness: Dawn Edition crawled its way back to United States, Canada, and Mexico's Nintendo eShop. If you are wondering what will happen to the already existing Lust for Darkness in European stores, the studio will just make the Dawn Edition available for those interested in a more friendly adventure through the Yelvertons' Victorian mansion. Publisher SimFabric reassured fans they didn't take out anything that would lose Lust for Darkness its DNA.

The game occurred to be too strong, even for a mature American audience, getting a postrelease Adults Only rating, and consequently, being removed from local eShop. After tweaking a controversial content and reworking the most contentious assets, SimFabric is happy to announce Lust for Darkness: Dawn Edition. A special version of the game adapted to the American rating policy. Lust for Darkness is still naughty and full of erotic tension - the game hasn't lost its DNA. It has been just reworked here and there, according to ESRB recommendations and will return to distribution in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
