Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors “Censored Again!”




A recent announcement has confirmed that Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors will be making its way to the west, while unfortunately being slammed with yet more censorship in the process, though many are hoping that the release will still have at least some degree of worth.

The not-so-naughty trailer:

A write-up has been generously provided by NIS America in regards to why they have to make such heinous changes to the game.

Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors will arrive in the barbarian nations on September 20th for the Vita.

    >Four changes to CG2
    >1. Art will be redrawn by highly competent tublrwhales and deviantards so it won't have even a hit that prisoners can be be punished in prison.
    >2. We will rewrite text everywhere where we want to cater to the audience which don't play such games in the first place. Well, it's not like we actually translate games anyway.
    >3. No dub, since we licensed this game for a quick cash grab and nobody will use this track anyway.
    >4. And we also will cut plenty of audio/scenes because fuck you, you sick pedophile bastards, you all will burn in Hell for playing this game.

    Classic NISA.

    >8. Isn’t it possible that the game would have received an M from the ESRB, no changes necessary?
    From our experience and the conversations we’ve had with ratings boards about the content, it is extremely unlikely that the game would have received an M (and equivalent) rating. Unfortunately, it is so unlikely that we cannot take that risk as a company.

    >9. But what about [Other Game]? That got an M and it was way worse!
    Though the debate about precedent and what “should” qualify as AO vs. M is ongoing, the only opinion that really matters is that of the ratings boards. We can (and often do, trust me) argue our position, but at the end of the day, we have to conform with the guidance the ratings boards give us. If they inform us that a title is going to be rated a certain way, we cannot persuade them otherwise by bringing up [Other Game]. They’ve made their decision, and we have to respect that and work with it rather than against it.

    It's not just NISA.

    I'm not sure how these people think when making decisions like this, getting rid of the fanservice in a game that relies heavily on fanservice for sales, nobody is gonna benefit from doing that, not the players, not the devs, not the publishers.

    I'm guessing they want to lower the age rating, but that just means they are unsuitable as a company to handle games like these.

    Despite the description of its release on this site (which seems deliberately tongue-in-cheek), the game is still built around fan service. It's just fan service that keeps it within an M ESRB rating.

    NIS is aiming for an M rating, which means altering content to suit the ESRB's standards. It's not the company that unsuited to localize the content, it's the industry as a whole and their adherence to ESRB standards.

    You would have to be stupid to believe an obvious lie since they do lie all the time about this. Many times ESRB employees say they never got contacted by NNISA for approval.

    Criminal Girls has never been about fanservice alone. Tons of lewds do lewd better than this.

    Its about the emotional bonds and NISA always runs over them. Turning the game into a lame lewd slideshow. And a bad one too.

    In you don't do JP you're out of luck though. I loved the first and am waiting for the "VITA the best" price drop on JP ver.

    Dont buy it, wait a little and PIRATE it when you can.

    Think that maybe you buy the 1º to support the game, and this is the reward, the 2º with much more censorship.

    I thought Vita hasn't been broken into that point yet? By then sales probably won't even matter.

    The tone that used the person for answering sounded like a jerkass.

    There are even worse games, and those aren't changed at all.

    Only because it uses illustrations, and is a Japanese game.

    Thank you SJW for making the localisation teams into a bunch of imbeciles.

    NISA is completely out of reality.

    Did the first butchering even sell well enough to warrant the sequels butchered release?

    The only thing it takes for censors to win is for consumers to buy their censored crap. Nothing succeeds like success.

    I see the NISA cucks are out in full force on various places on the Internet, spouting the usual BS like...

    "It's only minor censorship."
    "You're a bunch of self-entitled faggots."

    The fact it's minor censorship is irrelevant; it's still censorship.

    And if people are self-entitled faggots for wanting something as it was originally presented, you're a fucking moron.

    If there is a pirated version, I will seed it just to decrease the company's profit. I'm not interested in playing this censored shit, not even for free.

    NISA never learns, still censoring stuff for incredibly stupid reasons.

    Well, they ARE literal retards. Look at what they've done to (not with, TO) each and every release they've had since Disgaea on the PS2.

    Of course, the best part of the "censorship faq" they posted is that they had "conversations" with the "ratings board" about the content they want to remove. Not only is the vagueness of this statement a warning sign of BS-ity, but the attempt at shifting blame for something that might or might not occur? Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiight.

    See, traditionally, publishers will send photos & dialog write-ups of the most "grievous" scenes a game may have, often with a game & save files so they can double-check, the ESRB will advise what rating that would be worth with a list of what brought-on that decision and, if the rating is too high for the publishers' taste, will THEN remove/alter the material as needed. This type of pre-emptive ESRBing has nothing to do with the ESRB and all to do with NISA's own internal issues.

    tl;dr: Criminal Girls is a game NISA likes, but since it's too "naughty" for their own morals it has to be purified first.

    Yea, NISA's dumb decision to censor it before even sending it in to be rate by the ESRB. They've gone to a whole new level of shitty localization.

    I've played the first and second game. The game itself is very fun to play. Regardless of linearity and sub par story, its just fun to play.

    The worst part of the game is literally the fan service. I'm not a big fan of the art, but its worse when they put a loli in this style. 2D and 3D are different, but the guilt hits me with this game. The fanservice minigames that you must complete to get stronger are EXTREMELY irritating and not fun at all.

    I know its a fan service based game. I bought it because it was a raunchy game. But I hated that part of the game and enjoyed it for a completely different reason to the point that I purchased both games.

    Wtf is wrong with this game!?

    I've also played the first game and surprisingly it is very fun to play, but Wtf wrong is SJW like you that force them to make them change this and that. If it triggers you for the loli part then you can just ignore this game (it already show the characters in the game cover, you already expected that will happen), don't expect developer to make a SJW safe mode on by default for you.

    Why wouldn't anyone just think of the digital line drawn children!

    You buy a game that you KNOW has lolis in it, then proceed to complain that it has lolis in it. Perhaps this just isnt your kind of game so leave it to the people whose kind of game it is.

    > buys game knowing it has loli fanservice
    > complains about loli fanservice

    The game caters to otaku who enjoy 2d fanservice of all kinds and don't discriminate with their tastes. If you don't like it, you shouldn't have bought it, or simply just don't use that character. Complaining about it merely indicates that you are maaaybe not the target demographic.

    I do agree that the actual 'gameplay' of the motivation sequences is not particularly good, but that's not really the point either.

    To actually answer your question, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the game, conceptually. Fanservice or ero-content involving 2d loli characters is no worse than the same for any other type of character. If it makes you actively uncomfortable, all that means is you are still comparing it to 3d. These are not real people, and should not be compared to real people.
