For those hoping for an uncensored version of Criminal Girls: Invite Only are in luck as modders have been making fan restoration patches for the PC version of the ecchi dungeon RPG, a formerly PlayStation-exclusive title. The Steam modders have been able to restore large portions of the game back to how it was in the orginal Japanese version, of course with the added inclusion of the English text. The following restorations have been done:

  • Removed the fog during the Punishment mini-game. In the Western version, the fog remained throughout the entire mini-game, whereas in the original Japanese version this fog gradually disappears.
  • A later patch allows you to toggle between having fog and no fog during these minigames by pressing Ctrl+S.
  • Futhermore, the restoration of the audio during the mini-game has also been done. The audio was removed during localisation.
  • Finally, the modders have added in the Blindfold DLC from Japan that was never released in the West. This has the girls wearing blindfolds during the mini-game and commenting on how they cannot see.

There is still some work to do, including changing the name of the minigame from “Motivation” back to “Punishment” which was present in the original Japanese version and removing the zooming in of the camera that was carried out in some of the mini-games.

Furthermore, a rep on NISA’s forums also confirmed that NISA’s no unrated games policy on Steam releases is set by NIS America themselves, and not their parent company in Japan.
