More news has surfaced regarding the censoring of Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors. It turns out that the sexy, dungeon-crawling JRPG will have more than half of its “Motivation” scenes (sexually themed BDSM mini-games) censored in its Western release on the PlayStation Vita.
“More than half of the total Motivation scenes have been edited in some way. The overwhelming majority of these edits, something like 30 in total (including regular and Knighted outfits), were just removing chains/ropes. I found approximately 10 instances of more noticeable changes, such as changing a pose or adding clothes (mostly involving Mizuki and Kuroe). In short, more than half of the Motivation images were changed, but most of the changes were just removing visible restraints.”
Censored Gaming also sent out a tweet recently based on another forum post made on NIS America’s official website indicating that the character stories, the overall plot and the dialogue hasn’t changed from the original, save for minor tweaks to the characters’ ages.

Just a short while ago NIS America published another teaser trailer ahead of the game’s Western release to help get gamers in the mood. But they avoid showing any of the censored motivation sequences.
Criminal Girls 2 was also denied classification in Germany and can’t be sold in Australia.
The game was originally due for release this September in North America but according to PlayStation Lifestyle NIS America sent out word that Criminal Girls 2 has been delayed to October 11th due to manufacturing issues.
