Earlier today NISA announced the release date for the upcoming RPG Criminal Girls 2 for the PlayStation Vita.
With the news today came a lengthy post about changes that were made to the game and why those changes were made. Fans were forced to make a choice on whether they would continue to support the localization of the game or refuse to buy it. The outcry seemed to be split.
However, the user “Prinny Supervisor”, a moderator and Editor for the NISA forums, addressed a few complaints made while adding a post that we felt our readers should see:
And as an additional note, something that I see going around a lot that I wish I could respond to directly, but will instead have to address here:
The “censoring” of this game is in no way an attempt to “pander” or “market” to certain people. It is in no way a response to any anticipatory backlash by “feminists” or “SJWs”. Understand that these edits were done to bring the game down to an M (and equivalent) from an AO, not from an M to an M (but with less sexual content) or T. We know what game we’re making, y’all. It’s from our parent company.
If this game required no edits whatsoever from the ESRB and was released with an M rating, I would love it. I would rejoice. All of the “SJWs” in the world could send me death threats over email, form a picket line outside the office, egg my house, set my car on fire, and write essays and give television interviews about how Criminal Girls 2 is the most abhorrent game ever made and no civilized person should ever play it and shame on everyone involved in its creation…and I would prefer it to having to deal with all of this “censorship” drama.
Don’t ever, ever believe that we want to censor things.
Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors is coming to PlayStation Vita on September 20 in NA and September 23 in EU.
[Author’s Take] This is as candid as it gets in the world of video games and a company getting in front of a “PR spin” on things. I would like to add that we are in no way telling you how to spend your money or make you forgive changes made through localization. We only report news and we saw this as an update to the story.
