Interesting story and theory. It could also be that the game just reached that age.
It is indeed very interesting. Even SSVS back then got a lot of backlash over it's gore and violence in arcades where it can be observed by the general public. When anyone of any age can walk in and play it, or even just see it. As there was no age rating system for game center games.
SSVS was removed from arcades.
The out-pour of complaints during this time is the very reason why SNK Playmore completely censored the AES release. And even when they "fixed" it, it was still censored.
We will never know, but it is probably a good reason why SSVS Perfect was never released back then and we got the Tenka Ichi that we did.
