Niche Gamer explained that the channel had been around for years before being nuked, writing…
“While it may not seem abnormal for adult content to be removed under YouTube’s terms of service- the Nutaku’s YouTube channel had existed for years- advertising games with trailer still falling with YouTube’s Terms of Service.”
One Angry Gamer’s YouTube channel was oftentimes flagged or penalized for uploading video trailers for games on Nutaku, even though the trailers were censored.
YouTube has been clamping down on fan-service over time and censoring or removing a lot of videos in order to be more advertiser friendly.
In fact, a Senran Kagura livestream was shut down back in December of 2018 for what YouTube labeled as containing “sexual content” even though there was no sexual content on display.
YouTube has also gone the extra mile to remove Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 from their gaming library, so now you can no longer instantly go to the information page on YouTube Gaming for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, it just shows a general “Gaming” tab.
👇More disgusting censorship by @TeamYouTube against Fanservice games. Youtube Gaming removed Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation and Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 from their gaming category, many DOAX videos are now classified as just YouTube gaming. pic.twitter.com/mfSaxfKYQh

It’s true if you visit any trailer or gameplay video, there’s no YouTube Gaming info tab, as indicated on the video from ContraNetwork, which recently uploaded 20 minutes worth of gameplay from the Nintendo Switch version of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet.
