Personally, I'm neither here nor there on dubs, but if skipping them can keep costs down and increase the chances of games coming across that wouldn't otherwise, then I'm all for it.

Incidentally, why is the budget for Criminal Girls so low? Is it a game that wasn't being planned for localization that NISA had to pick up to fill a gap in their schedule or something?


Probably because they wouldn't make back that money.
I don't think the masses are going to flock to this game.

I don't know if I'd be pleasantly surprised or not.

Thank goodness they decided not to dub it. It'll probably be like playing a poor mans hentai movie and we all know how bad dubbed hentai is.

well i don"t really care about the dubb as long as it translated in the subtitle its fine with me

but i can assure you this game won't work for the general gamer of rpg useless they want it for the mini game cause it seem to be a rather hard game to play if your not careful

but i might be wrong depending on the scenario of the game and the game play it could be actually user friendly but i highly doubt it coming from Japaneses games dont forget its not like the neptunia serie who had a whole pack of game to do and learn from.

i think its already fine to have it localized and it wont be too late to dub it latter on if they receive the feedback for it maybe as a paid extension of the game or something

The neptunia series actually started off with one of the absolute worst games I've ever played (from a systems and mechanical perspective,) it was objectively a complete and utter mess where you couldn't even use a health potion of your own accord.

There is absolutly no way this game is going to be anywhere near that bad or user unfriendly.

from what i heard you cant controle all the girl completely in it useless you dicipline them (show them some love the harsh way :p)

so the battling systeme might be a little messy and we were talking about potential dubb of the game and i thing the first hdn was not all that hard but it was really long to play yes i like re:birth 1 much better

as for criminal girl ill enjoy it even in the event it is a hard game like some new found treasure *o* the probleme come from the general public and rpg player who dont all like jrpg

That's correct - they're unmotivated and won't always obey you. I'm sure the game is balanced to handle that, though, and it actually sounds kind of fun. ^^

Sure! Criminal Girls had a very tight development and localization schedule. We couldn't work in a dub with the quality we require within that schedule. Other dubbed games had much more time and a more open development schedule.

Is there going to be a way to turn off the jp voice.

Turn the volume down to 0 should work.

Is that sarcasm or do you really hate dubbing that much?

Considering post history elsewhere, unlikely.

Regardless, it's a non-statement that doesn't add anything.
