MIKAGE opens the pre-registration for upcoming RPG “Criminal Girls X” (クリミナルガールズX), which will be released first for PC and smartphone, with VR support for the smartphone version in May 2020. A console version will also be launching in Japan later. The game is a project celebrating the 10th-anniversary of the RPG series “Criminal Girls”.
▍PV (Eng. Sub.)
The game follows an unnamed player character, who wakes up in purgatory after chasing after his love to save her from the eternal torture that awaits following an “unnatural” death. He is given the opportunity to have his wish granted, but only if he accomplishes the trial of redeeming 24 girls within a one-year span.
To accomplish this task, the protagonist is given the form of a cat and guides the 24 girls through battles against Oni while facing their past sins. The girls gather fragments of their memories as they do so, in the hope of being revived in the real world.
The game also reveals several screenshots, which showcase players going through dungeons of purgatory with their selected party. Events will sometimes take place between floors, while enemies may drop items that can be used to create equipment.
While combat has the appearance of an action or shooting game, they are full-fledged turn-based battles. When players defeat each floor’s boss, they will earn memory fragments, which can be spent to unlock memories for each heroine.
Pre-registration of the game is now available through the “DLsiteにじGAME” platform. Players have to apply and login to the “DLsiteにじGAME” account in order to pre-register the game. Click here for more information.
Players will be able to obtain gacha tickets and CGX packs to increase the intimacy level with the girls after the pre-registration.
