Also, hello again, Niche Gamer forums! Happy to answer any questions you have!
Do you guys communicate public concerns regarding your localizations to your Japanese branch? Does the Japanese branch have a public email that people can send feedback to, or something close to it?
And since you guys said that releasing games unrated is against company policy, is there any possibility of such a policy being changed, especially since you've recently started doing PC ports (including Criminal Girls 1 itself!) and games on such a platform don't require such a rating? (and hopefully this isn't too unrelated, but do you guys do your PC ports in house or does the Japanese branch do most of the work in making them?)
On another note, why does NIS America make one version of a game for Western audiences, rather than treating each individual country and its ratings boards as a different beast to tackle, so to speak. Is that strictly a cost issue, or are there other reasons involved? It just seems kind of strange for there to be two main versions of a game typically, (Japanese and Western versions).
