They should censor the entire game off of the planet. No reason at all to pander to such a demographic.

Not sure if I was going to get this either way, but Mugen Soul's limited edition is still in stock nearly two year's later after it's own censorship scandal.

Good point. We don't need such filth, keep it in the ecchi section

the lack of moans and gasps when you are molesting girls kinda makes it even more creepy imo.

Original source:

So after talking with the staff working on the game, this is what we're looking at in terms of a final release:

- The punishment minigame will remain as is, with a couple small tweaks. The first is that the associated audio will not be present (moans, gasps, short phrases, etc.). The second is that for certain scenes with little to no steam, some steam effects will be added back in to obscure some potentially problematic images. This will be kept to a minimum.

- No other scenes or content will be removed. As a general approach, we are being very conscious of the general tone of the game and making sure that we retain the spirit of the story and characters without taking things too far (this will mostly consist of terminology choices and character interactions here and there).

And that's all. I realize that for some people, even this will be enough to avoid the game. But I would like to note that we did get in touch with all of the rating boards about this title, providing them with sample scenes, images, and dialogue from the game. Based on their feedback, we decided these changes would be necessary in order to make a release possible in all regions.

You can believe that or not, but at this point any discussion about whether or not we REALLY talked to them or if we're actually just spineless lying cowards will be considered unproductive and off-topic, and any particularly aggressive or angry posts will be deleted or edited at my discretion. That's also all the detail I can provide, since we're still in the midst of working on it and any further detail would be subject to change.

I don't know how to feel though. I dislike censorship period but it would seem that not much is getting changed, so maybe I'll grab the game if the price is right.

Funny thing is that, at least imo, the game would be far better if they removed them.
It's just a tedious way to get new skill for the characters.

This seems odd to me. If people actually want the game in NA (And I'm assuming they do) then the only things they know about it are from the non-censored version, so why censor it at all or at the very least add a censor option that's on by default but you can turn off at any time. Isn't the point of this game the sexual stuff or does the gameplay have enough merit to stand alone? I'm confused.

To be fair, it was probably this or an AO rating considering how some of the characters look.

Censorship sucks, I agree, but you have to look at the broad picture sometimes. Looking at some of the samples and how the ESRB works with sexual content, there was no way in hell this was getting released uncensored here. It was either censorship or no release at all.

NISA is getting desperate with their localization choices since they lost GUST, and now some of the Idea Factory games as well.

Not sure how you and some posters seem to think you're arguing against censorship and in favor of artistic expression. Criminal Girls is garbage for the kind of perverted chumps Chris Hanson became a household name for exposing and humiliating.

Shouldn't they just have some integrity and not release the game at all if it's one foot away from that?

I think this should tell you the story of how the last news thread about the game went. In general, the threads devolve into thread shitting that's somehow allowed, until the threads get so out of hand they're cut down.


It's always interesting to hear about censorship in any game, and this isn't much exception. Have to imagine with this it's to keep this in a M rating, though maybe such a thing doesn't matter for something like this? If that's the case and it doesn't matter, why bother censoring something to begin with? Guess it's an "all regions" thing as they say. /shrug

Ok.

I'm not going to buy it either, but why shouldn't it be allowed to exist?

Aren't those shooter games the same thing, but for cold blooded killers rather than pedos?
