PS5 Exclusive: Shocking New Horror Game Too Intense for Xbox or Switch

Christmas Massacre, a distinctive low-poly horror game, was set to launch on Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation by the end of the month. However, with just weeks to go, the game’s developer revealed that Xbox and Nintendo have refused to let the game release on their platforms, deeming it “too crazy” for their consoles. Indie developer Puppet Combo, known for its PS1-style horror games, is behind the controversial game.

Puppet Combo, which has gained a reputation for its spooky games featuring lo-fi aesthetics and eerie characters, has been a staple in the indie game scene since 2012. With a portfolio of over a dozen horror games, the studio is no stranger to creating chilling experiences. Their upcoming title, Christmas Massacre, was scheduled to launch on PlayStation on November 17, leaving Xbox and Switch users out in the cold.

According to Puppet Combo, Nintendo rejected the game’s release on their platform and refused to allow any alterations to make it acceptable. The indie studio also mentioned that Xbox has also refused previous Puppet Combo games, despite the studio’s efforts to make them available on the console.

While the controversial content of Christmas Massacre may have impacted its availability on Xbox and Switch, the game is still set to launch on PlayStation. Sony has shown support for Puppet Combo, even featuring the developer’s previous game on the PlayStation Access YouTube channel.

Puppet Combo manager Ben Cocuzza addressed the situation, acknowledging the disappointment of fans who were expecting the game to launch on Xbox and Switch. Despite efforts to make the game available on all three consoles, Xbox denied the game, and Nintendo chose not to release it.

The decision by Xbox and Nintendo to block Christmas Massacre has left many fans puzzled, especially considering previous Puppet Combo games have been available on these platforms. The refusal of Nintendo to release the game has sparked debate, given their approval of other games with questionable content on their platform.

In light of the recent development, Puppet Combo’s Christmas Massacre will only be available on PlayStation, leaving Xbox and Switch users longing for the chance to experience the unique and controversial horror game.
