Mikage LLC. has announced that they are creating Criminal Girls X, a smartphone and PC title that celebrates the 10th anniversary of the series. The story is being helmed by Sou Yoda (Criminal Girls, 7th Dragon, Stella Glow), while new illustrator Kei Mochizuki is in charge of character designs. Japanese sound composer Nekodaruma is working on the soundtrack, while Tokyo Chronos graphic designer Katou will be participating in the project as well. [Thanks, Gematsu!]
Criminal Girls X is being produced around the theme of “pure love.”
The heroine, the protagonist’s fiancee, is dragged into a mysterious incident and loses her life as a result.
After living a full life in order to rescue his beloved, the protagonist prays to God.
In that moment he learns the truth, that his fiancee’s soul has descended to Asura, the domain on the brink of hell.
“I want to hold her in my arms again…”
The protagonist awakens in the form of a cat, surrounded by a group of 24 young women.

Heroine (CV: Chiwa Saitou)
Currently, the game is set to be released on iOS, Android, and PC in Japan, and will be compatible with VR. Mikage LLC. has yet to sign an agreement with Nippon Ichi Software for the Western release, meaning that whether the game will use the Criminal Girls name in the West is still undecided. However, several American companies have asked about releasing the game, which is being developed on PC as the base platform, on platforms like PlayStation 4.
Criminal Girls X is in development for iOS, Android, and PC in Japan, and may possibly release on PlayStation 4 in the West.
