Status Unreleased

In 1974, Nintendo released Wild Gunman, an arcade game that used 16mm film rather than video. It was a light gun shooter where the player engages in a gunfight with various Old West-style outlaws. The gunmen were represented via film footage of actual live-action people. The player had to watch for the opponent's eyes to flash, then shoot at them. 10 years later in 1984, it inspired the Family Computer/Nintendo Entertainment System game of the same name.[1]

Nintendo also designed a more adult version of the game, known as Fascination (ファッシネーション). It was also a shooter using a light gun, but the film was significantly different. Instead of shooting cowboys, the player shot at a Swedish woman in an evening dress who danced around the screen. When she struck a pose, the player shoots. Instead of killing her, parts of her clothing come off. The process was repeated until she was completely nude.[2]

This game was never released to the public, and likely due to the company wanting to keep a "family-friendly" image, they rarely mention it.

However, Gunpei Yokoi - famed designer at Nintendo - specified that they didn't release Fascination because its mechanism was too "complicated and fragile".

Fascination should not to be confused with the 1991 point-and-click adventure game of the same name, which is also erotic-themed and developed by a studio that would then put on a family-friendly image (Coktel Studios).

Probably made before Hiroshi Yamauchi decided to shun adult content on his company's hardware.

You won't BELIEVE how many "family-friendly" creators have done NSFW stuff in their past. (or heck, present and future!)

...

What is wrong with that anyway?

What's wrong with it is probably kids looking for stuff coming from the creator of their favorite show/whatever and finding things thet they're not supposed to see.

Look at all the Ren & Stimpy fans who were disgusted by the Adult Party Cartoon.

But the problem with Ren & Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon was that it wasn't made for kids, but it was just too offensive to be funny and disgusting with no substance or any kind of reasonable, thought-out message.

All of the people who were disgusted with Adult Party Cartoon weren't just kids, but even older fans of the show hate it as well for those reasons I described.

So, there was public location testing done in Shinjuku? I guess that makes chances of discovering a cabinet slightly higher...slightly.
