Postby Prinny Supervisor » Wed Jun 01, 2016 10:45 am

Rejoice! It's official! Criminal Girls 2 is getting an international release.

Let's just get this out of the way right now.Here's an FAQ/blog that probably answers all your questions... But I can answer others! If you ask a question that's covered by the blog post I will direct you to it or quote from it.

By the way, did you guys see the Party Bag edition!? Crazy!

Very excited, loved the first one. I want those Party Bag lapel pins like burning, but $75 is just too rich for my blood. Going standard edition, I suppose.

Any idea when other retailers will have the game available for preorder?

I am not sure about the specific dates you will be able to preorder outside of NISA's online store, but I do know for certain that the Party Bag edition is an NISA store exclusive.

I'm really glad to know this is coming here and I just pre-ordered the party bag edition! I also must say I am pleased to see that there was a disclaimer on the product page detailing the changes being made to the game, it's always best to purchase with an informed decision. While I normally do not condone censorship of any form, this is an exception as it allows people to still enjoy the game itself even if the fanservice is toned down somewhat, but hey, that's one of the reasons people import games. I love fan service just as much as any other fan, but if I had to choose enjoying the game fully in my native language versus stumbling through my limited understanding of japanese and various guides, I feel that this is a fair trade off. Thank you NISA for your efforts, full disclosure like this is the most anyone could ask for. :D

I think anyone who expected it to release in the west uncensored (especially with one of the characters practically looking like a little kid) were fooling themselves, way too many western countries with sex laws that just wouldn't work with "Softcore Torture Porn: The Game". Nothing against the game itself, but anyone who actually expected it to come here uncensored was delusional

Thank you for your support! We definitely wanted to be as transparent as possible with our fans so that they know exactly what the game will contain and why.

And let's not forget guys, beside all the fanservicey stuff, it's actually a really fun dungeon-crawler RPG!

Not sure if I'll bite this one. All the BDSM fetish stuff is kinda the point of the game. Toning it down isn't something I'd approve of for this title, even if a FAQ explaining why since most of is "could of been" instead of a definite. The "but that other game got an M" is a perfectly valid retort since we all know that game is lewder than this. I might wait for a sale.

Honestly, the torturing aspect just makes this game a no go for me, even with the possible DRPG elements, but nice to see it localized for those who care :lol:

Don't worry, the game still features the "S and M" system, and not all the art was redrawn. There are still BDSM themes present.

So if I'm understanding this correctly, the censoring gets rid of ropes, thereby exposing more skin?

I'll have to see if I can preorder the LE. I quite liked the first game.

Cool, the game's finally officially announced. I actually liked the first game and the sequel seemed like it improved on quite a number of things. If nothing else, the battle and sprite animations look quite the bit better.

Though I am surprised that there are three different editions of the game being sold. Kind of makes me question the whole "Yomawari" situation even more. Anyway, probably will get the basic LE. Don't really have any interesting in any of the extras in the Party Bag Edition.

Except it kind of isn't. Well, it would be but most of the examples I've seen people use ignore a lot of the other aspects that make up the whole context. Even the smallest of details can make or break things which makes some things very tricky to work with.

Well then, time to go on a complete media blackout for the game I guess. I actually want to enjoy this game and I don't want the experience soured by people complaining (valid or not) like last time. Though I doubt I'll be able to escape some, if not most, of it.

Regarding potential questions about what's being changed, we're still in the process of finalizing the redrawn art assets so we can't provide much in the way of specific information.

What I can say is that the art alterations are intended to placate the concerns of ratings boards by way of addressing the following concerns they've raised:

1) The strongly implied lack of consent that is depicted in certain motivation scenes.

2) The level of detail in clothing that overly accentuates the girls' genitalia/pubic region.

Note that these are some of the concerns they raised, not all of them. However, I want to assure everyone that we are treating the quality of the finalized art very seriously. It is of utmost importance that the art meet our audience's reasonable expectations and quality standards, while also not being too salacious for the ratings boards.
Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

That's my primary concern, a quick google shows plenty of chains, rope, and other things that would be considered "non consensual" based on the example given. If the alteration is to get rid of that, there's going to be a lot modified. That's why I'm hoping more clarity can be given in the future regarding just what was deemed had to go.
