DSiWare Title Zombie Blaster Will Rise Back Up From The Dead

Zombie Blaster DSiWareThis zombie won’t go down that easily, Nintendo. Oh no, it won’t.

Yesterday, DSiWare title Zombie Blaster — released in North America on Thursday, October 10th — was removed from the 3DS eShop only weeks after making its debut, as reported yesterday by Nintendo Life. Moments after discovering the news, we contacted the game’s publishing company Enjoy Gaming for the reasoning behind this apocalyptic conundrum.

It turns out there was a discrepancy with the title’s Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) rating, which triggered Nintendo to bury it 6-feet under. The publisher has stated that the issue has been fixed and that the title will rise back up from the dead after Nintendo approves the updated changes.

Hi Kevin

It was removed due to an error in the ESRB rating embedded in the code. ESRB re rated the game as Teen with descriptors and Nintendo took the product out of eShop because the parental controls were then wrong. The code has now been altered and resubmitted to Nintendo for their normal checks before it will be re released on eShop in the not too distant future.

Thank you for your interest. I hope this answered your question.

I guess that just goes to show that zombies really are undead. Hopefully the title gets re-listed in the 3DS eShop in time for Halloween.
