Nippon Ichi and Arc Rise Fantasia developer ImageEpoch are working together on a new project titled Criminal Girls. Yes, it is as crazy as it sounds. This PSP RPG puts you firmly in the shoes of a prison guard in hell. Seven girls (representing the seven deadly sins) are imprisoned in the jail you work at, because they’ve been naughty in life. Your job – if you choose to undertake it – is to reform these girls by…wait for it…punishing them. Basically, you beat some sense into them to see if they’re ready for a second chance at life.
Yes, part of this punishment apparently involves spanking. Who wouldn’t want the opportunity to spank some naughty, scantily-clad girls, even if they are digital? Why do I bring this game up, even though its chances at seeing a North American release are probably less than zero because we’re a bunch of prudes? Because it’s NIS, and I love NIS. That’s why.
Criminal Girls releases in Japan in November, for around $70, in case you want to import, you naughty, naughty person, you.
