Clean up for the next guy

Publisher NIS America has released  a new trailer for Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors.

The trailer does not show gameplay, but rather acts as an introduction to Criminal Girl 2‘s basic concepts and atmosphere, as well as showing off the cast of cute girls you’ll get to play around with and how the physical edition will look. You can watch it below:

Criminal Girls 2 is the sequel to Nippon Ichi Software’s (aka NIS Japan) Criminal Girls, which centered on being the warden of one of Hell’s dungeons, with your convicts being very cute girls with magical powers whom you had to fight, connect with physically through the touchpad, form relationships with, and eventually reform. Of course, while Criminal Girls was a success in Japan, NIS America continued with their track record of destroying titles in the name of localization, and riddled it with censorship so ridiculous  that even far left outlets like Kotaku mocked it.

Sadly, it appears that in spite of the glossy trailer and cute physical edition, Criminal Girls 2 will suffer the exact same fate, with NIS America admitting  that they will change everything from artwork to dialogue in the spirit of “localizing” and out of fear of being slammed with the dreaded “AO” rating, though recent evidence suggests that this latter justification is farcical at best.
