Here we have NIS America's second Anime Expo announcement. Criminal Girls: Invite Only is an updated and expanded version of the Japanese PSP title from 2010, planned for release in North America and Europe in 2015. It's an RPG featuring seven ladies, criminals whose souls have been damned to a life of imprisonment in hell. Also, it's a huge pervert game. Oh, NIS America...
Let me just read you this one line from NIS America's announcement press release, in which they say that one of Criminal Girls: Invite Only's main features is "Touching Gameplay."
"Connect with the girls, and uncover each of their unique personalities through one-on-one motivational sessions with a unique use of the front touchscreen and rear touchpad, and fulfill the girls’ special requests to discover more about their interesting, and often dark pasts."
Aha, yeah, there goes NIS trying to either hide or glaze over that a good portion of this games takes place on a bed, with the seven sinful ladies in vulnerable positions. Just look at the logo, people. It's filled with hearts and handcuffs. "On-on-one motivational sessions" indeed. You're not fooling anyone, NIS America! To add to that, it's likely that some stuff will be censored, as a result of western laws against sexual depictions of young people.
Anyway, "motivating" the girls will unlock their spells, skill, and stats, making them stronger in battle. Thus, it's a core component in putting a team together and progressing through the game. Maybe NIS America will release a trailer down the road showing off how, err, power leveling works. Judging from how they've dealt with potentially offensive content in the past, however, I wouldn't count on it.
Criminal Girls: Invite Only is a PS Vita title that's planned for release in North America and Europe in 2015. The extra content that will come with the PS Vita release includes two new playable characters, extra scenarios, and updated artwork and effects. Again, NIS America has already stated that some content will be censored. Don't expect the game to get too hot and heavy.
