Apparently YouTube is continuing to remove gaming profiles from their database that features content that doesn’t coincide with the Regressive Left’s Social Justice Warrior agenda. We’ve reported that they’ve been removing certain entries from certain game series from the YouTube Gaming recommendation tabs, such as the Dead or Alive Xtreme series, but apparently even more games from both Dead or Alive and Senran Kagura are being removed.
A reader reached out to inform us that in the recommended search under YouTube’s gaming category, all of the Senran Kagura games have been removed save for Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link, which is an Android game that came out back in 2017, and is available for download from over on the QooApp page.
Here we go again more ridiculous censorship by YouTube. After removing DOAX3 they removed now almost all Senran Kagura games from Youtube Gaming, except their own android game sure. Where does it end? Why the hell should I use their censorship streaming service over Twitch now? pic.twitter.com/PArcyxCL2F

This is true. If you click on a review for the Senran Kagura games – such as Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal, the tab on the page will lead you back to the general YouTube Gaming channel instead of the video portal for the game. You can see the example below with Gammalad’s review of Senran Kagura Burst Re: Newal.
However, as mentioned above, if you click on a video for Shinobi Master Senran Kagura New Link, the tab that leads you to the video portal for the game will show up, as evidenced in the video from Kurisu2106.
Essentially what this means is that you can’t subscribe to the other Senran Kagura games; you won’t be able to receive automatic updates and notifications regarding those games from the YouTube Gaming database; and you won’t be able to easily browse through the international video listings regardless of the language to see what other users are saying, playing, and uploading regarding those games. Overall, removing the games from the YouTube Gaming library means that it shrinks the visibility and discoverability of new content for that game.
Sankaku Complex is also reporting that the same thing is happening with Dead or Alive Xtreme games. This applies to the original Dead or Alive Xtreme, the sequel, Venus Vacation, and even the recently released Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet for the Nintendo Switch and PS4.
Now so far it appears as if Dead or Alive 6 is still safe. If you check videos on YouTube for the game they still contain a tab that takes you to the gaming hub for Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja’s latest installment in the fighting game series.
As noted by Sankaku Complex, the removal of the tabs affected listings for both user uploaded videos and the official videos uploaded by the publishers.
This may not seem like a big issue, but taken into account with Sony’s censorship policies and the continued push to censor and take away your games from Social Justice Warriors, you can readily see that there’s a concerted effort to start slowly diminishing the presence of these games in the wider gaming markets.
Heck, it wasn’t long ago that YouTube began demonetizing Senran Kagura content, and that came after they shut down a livestream being hosted by the developers, not unlike what EVO did to Dead or Alive 6 during the EVO Japan livestream.
Don’t be surprised if more fan-service games get “untitled” from YouTube’s gaming channel.
