Trivia: Rule of Rose

  • Banned in China: The UK release was postponed indefinitely after the newspapers picked up on a moral panic story about it in the Italian press of all places, alleging that sexual contact between minors takes place in the game. Hysteria was not helped by the fact that the trailer doing the rounds at the time featured the obviously school-age Diana suggestively raising the hem-line of her dress, whilst smiling coquettishly. While those allegations are dubious at best, Schoolgirl Lesbians of the (chaste) Romantic Two-Girl Friendship sort are a major theme, though it was likely ultimately banned because of the adult characters doing harm to minors.
  • No Export for You: Pressure from Moral Guardians resulted in the UK release of the game being cancelled.
