Saucy JRPG Toushin Toshi II Is Getting Remade For The Nintendo 3DS

Posted by Damien McFerran

"God of the City" will launch in Japan early next year

Japanese developer Imageepoch is remaking Alicesoft's controversial PC RPG Toushin Toshi II for the Nintendo 3DS. The game — which carries the name God of the City — launches on January 30th 2014, and will retail for 6279 Yen.

The original title was released in the early '90s and became famous for its adult themes, which makes the port to the 3DS somewhat surprising — however, it's expected that much of the questionable content will be removed from this version.

Still, with this and Senran Kagura Burst available on the console, the 3DS is getting a nice sideline in "mature" games. However, while Senran Kagura has been lucky enough to get localised for western markets, it's unlikely that Imageepoch's remake will receive the same treatment.

Not familiar with the original, but from the few pieces of art there, it kind of looks like a text-based game. Not really my thing, I guess. Cutesy anime girls are a welcome addition to any title, but a game they do not make :P

Not familiar with this one. Oh well, probably won't make its way Stateside anyways. Why remove the "questionable content" if its from the early 90s? So sick of this Instant Gratification soaked in Political Correctness world we live in these days.

As the immortal mark twain once said:censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak simply because a baby can't chew it.

The title "God of the City" is incorrect, it should be Toushin City or Toushin Toshi.
The "Toushin" title granted to the victors of the tournament in the game is a remnant of ancient history where a group of mages created enormous robotic bodies and massive floating fortresses to combat the Demon King.
The robotic bodies were called Toushin, or Combat Gods, and were used to fight on par with an invincible army of monsters.
The floating fortresses were called Toushin Toshi or Toushin Cities, the setting of the game is a city called Toushin City built on the ruins of one of the fortresses that crashed.

For the people complaining about the censorship, you might want to do a little research. ;) This is a hardcore you know what, and no way in hell would this game be localize. Censor or not. Senran Kagura is a kid's game compare to this.

Call me when Rance Quest gets an uncensored full 3DS release. Then I'll care about saucy JRPGs.

If it were simply an Ecchi game then I'd concur with the censorship complaints but this is a H-game. As in Hentai. Porn. They kind of HAVE to censor it.

Normally don't care for/about Mature games but I'm glad the 3DS is getting it's fill in saucy anime titles that I would actually be interested in. Doubt this one would get a localization though.

No, no they don't actually "HAVE" to censor anything. You know that AO rating? That one rating thats never used and people actually cause an uproar over when it is? This is what its for.

I'm not personally interested in it myself but if a game derserves a certain rating thats the one it should have, not watered down until it can be sold to as many people as possible. If it can't be sold it shouldn't even be made/localized. They won't cause that'd limit sales and major stores won't stock it (which they shouldn't) but the industry needs to put its responsibilities before the all mighty dollar. Right now even the "mature" rating is a joke.

@Zombie_Barioth If it has anybody underage (Or who could possible look like they were) it could never be classified in the UK. (I think elsewhere is less pointless a cartoon cannot hurt anybody). Meanwhile Facebook are pretty happy to let people look at video's of people being beheaded. (And does not allow pictures of mothers breastfeeding - on something dedicated to that). Western culture is totally warped.

(It is not something I would be interested in but I don't think it should be illegal.)

Yea, theres that too. Its a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. Parents, media, and everyybody else complain about mature content getting into the hands of children, even suggesting it should be banned, but if they do the responsible thing and make them AO then they'll complain about adult content on the "childrens'" game consoles. Don't you just love double standards?

@unrandomsam
Mankind is a fickle one thats for sure. We don't like taking responsibility for things even if its our own fault. We'll decide whats right and wrong then create double standards when we see fit.

@WiiLovePeace Actually, the original game is freeware that has been translated. You'll have to google Toushin Toshi 2 though.

@RPG_KING The original game was pretty brutal in the 18+ material. They have to censor it for better or worse. It's bizarre that the game would get a remake on the 3DS in the first place though.

@Zombie_Barioth Yeah. If parents don't want their children to get the games so badly, they should keep a close eye on them. I find it funny that the same people who want government regulation on media don't want it on health care, but ah well.

@RPG_KING well, granted, the original went far beyond a few seconds, but that doesn't mean it's okay to cut it.
Nintendo already got a lot of undeserved backlash and beef for MadWorld, which was not only uncalled for, but also largely biased ('experts', huh?).
The western world (USA and EU both) is filled to the brim with lousy perception and double standards when it comes to media content (Dragon's Crown, anyone?). But nobody has any interest to change the current mindsets, simply because the most conservative people are also often in charge for things they just don't get.

That being said, I'd probably get this if it was uncut, but if it's getting censored, I'd rather stick to the original version. It's free, after all.

@RPG_KING Is society ready? Where we can engage in a Sexual activity, Straight, Homo, Rape, Gang Bang, etc on a H-game? No, this is the kind of scapegoat they would use to backlash the gaming industry because it makes it easier for them to blame.
