New Criminal Girls 2 Trailer Shows Off its Improved Touch Punishment Mechanic

Nippon Ichi Software has published the latest trailer for Criminal Girls 2, their upcoming PS Vita-bound sequel.

Featured above, the new trailer shows off the cast of girls once again, however, this time we get a look at its new and improved punishment system.

In the game, you’ll be able to punish two girls at the same time, and things seem to be just as crazy as ever (editor’s note: I wouldn’t watch this at work).

Criminal Girls 2 is launching in Japan on November 26th.

    I hope this will get Asian/English release. Even if this will come to west there is no way it will not be censored.

    Oh come on! Why it didn’t show anything about battle system. That’s the thing I’m most curious about.

    Criminal Girls 1 wasn’t really great game. It was a OK game. Battle system was interesting but it needs some major improvments. Basicly during normal battles you did all to get one hit KO attack… boss fights were bit better… but how many times I cursed for getting attack that I didn’t want to use.

    Hmm… don’t hold your breath.

    NISA is responsible for publishing games everywhere outside of Japan.

    And there are only 2 versions of game. Either japanese one or english one. So asian version of Criminal Girls is exactly the same version as in NA and EU.

    Anyway… censorship in first part is not as bad as people believe. Please note that I’m not the type who playes games for risky content so my opinion might not be the same as yours. Though I hate censorship just as you guys.

    Even as a fan of NISA I must say that it is very stupid censorship. Selective one.

    (wait a bit booting my game to make some screenshot for you)

    Ok take a look at this. They censored less risky stuff such as this:


    But left uncensored more risky stuff such as this:


    Even better all CGs that I think are highly risky stayed uncensored.


    Frankly speaking I’m more bothered by removing sounds in mini games. In result those became even more creepy than if there was sound.

    Anyway. Releasing Criminal Girls 2 is possible with NISA. I’m quite sure they will release it.

    Pretty much if you are fan of risky content the most risky game on Vita is…. Ar Nosurge that was released on PS3 and PSV without any censorship. Stuff like that happen (probably more than games like Moe Chronicles)

    Looks cool. I’m more interested in the story. It could be a parallel team of girls or it could actually be a prequel to the original.

    this looks inappropriate and lewd
    don’t worry guys NISA is here to protect the gaijin children with the power of censorship yay

    their censorship is so pointless it begs the question if they just do it for the sake of it

    maybe censoring games in dumb ways is company policy idk

    Which censorship isn’t dumb?

    Marvelous Europe also censored game in dumb way… I would say that they fucked up even more because they decided to cut out content that wouldn’t raise the censorship flag.

    NISA in that regard isn’t any worse than other companies. It doesn’t deserve all the hate.

    Though I agree that Criminal Girls have stupid censorship. But maybe that was their plan to begin with? To show rating boards that they censored something…. usually stuff that can be found after short time of playing…. leaving more risky end-game stuff not censored.

    Dunno. Can’t say.

    I know for sure that the more gaming press focus on risky stuff of game the more probable it will be that the game will be censored. Not many people were focusing on risky stuff in Ar Nosurge… AND IT IS HELL OF A RISKY STUFF…. that allowed publisher to pass throug rating boards without any problems hiding the presence of risky CGs from them.

    Trailer was quite interesting, slightly lewd, but certainly interesting.

    Is all CG really uncensored? I’ve my doubts since it’s NISA after all

    If I recall, the CG was left intact. But during the punishment minigames where they take place in, more fog was added in than was originally there. This arguably backfired as he showed in the first CG which makes it look like the girl isn’t wearing anything down there. The voices were also removed from the minigame which as some people like Phelan have said, made the minigames feel more creepy than any kind of arousing.

    From what I’ve seen yes.

    All CGs that are in game are uncensored.

    So, does the gamer have a “gallery” to see all uncensored CG?

  15. Phelan

    Hmm? I’m not sure if I understand you correctly.

    All CGs are uncensored but they are not in game. Those are additional pictures that you unlock in game by playing mini games.

    Those can be accessed via menu.

    Take a look


    You can see there

    Art Gallery – CG which are uncensored


    And Scene Gallery – which was partially censored – those are pictures from mini games.


    But as you can see on picture only some of it was censored.

    Thanks, that’s what i wanted to know.
    Mmmmn… Maybe i could consider to buy it…. But after a good price drop.

    People demonized NISA and Criminal Girls but frankly speaking it is good game. Not great game… but good. Worth buying for something like 30$

    Comparing Moe Chronicles and Criminal Girls I must say that when we are speaking about risky content Criminal Girls it is way more mature. Even with censorship.

    Moe Chronicles compared to Criminal Girls feels…. retarded and childish. Even when CGs are showing bit more, it still feels really childish.

    My problem is that i really really hate censorship. Even if the game is good or not i wont buy it (fortune summoners is the only exception, just because it was like 2 dlls and i found a patch to restore the only one censored CG). I’ve waited for years to play Criminal Girls but it’s the only two options for me are wait for a price like 15 dlls, or less, or import it, which is more expensive

    Nah I totally understand you.

    But believe me that censored Criminal Girls is still more spicy than uncensored Moe Chronicles. At least that is my opinion.

    And again I’d like to remind you that the only uncesnored version of Criminal Girls is the one from Japan with Japanese language only. R3 version is also censored. Just friendly reminder.

    Anyway cheers.
