It was also published by PQube in North America and Europe. Due to the game's sexualized content, it was banned in New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates.

Australia / New Zealand / United Arab Emirates[]

  • Gal*Gun: Double Peace was classified R 18+ in Australia for "Sexual activity related to incentives and rewards" on June 2, 2016. In January 2017, the game was banned in New Zealand due to its sexualization of female high school students.[1][2] Publisher PQube appealed the "objectionable" ruling in New Zealand, but was denied. The chief censor stated: "The game’s lack of difficulty means that this content is available to even unskilled players and further supports the idea that the intention of this game is for the titillation and arousal of the viewer, rather than for any interest in gameplay mastery."[3] In a decision dated 11 January 2023, Gal*Gun: Double Peace remains banned in New Zealand.

Where to find it uncensored[]

The game is available in uncensored in all other countries. It was briefly available in Australia until publicity about the raunchy content caused retailers such as Electronics Boutique to pull the game in July 2016.[4][5] However, it is still available online though the PlayStation Store in Australia.[6]
