NIS America Releases English Trailer For The Witch and the Hundred Knight
The Witch and the Hundred Knight is one of those games that have lurked on the Nippon Ichi docket for quite some time (check out our impressions from back in 2012). The game did release in Japan last summer and is finally on its way for a localized release next month. For the unfamiliar, it’s […]
Preview: DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Publisher: Nippon Ichi Software America Developer: Spike Chunsoft Genre: Murder Mystery, Action-Adventure Release Date: 2/11/2014 Thanks to the wonderful folks at NIS America, I got my hands on a pre-release copy of the upcoming Vita remake of DanganRonpa.

NIS America’s Phoenix Spaulding and David Alonzo on DanganRonpa
Back during Anime Expo in early July, Nippon Ichi Software of America announced that they would be localizing the Vita remake of the first DanganRonpa game. The game, which was originally published on the PSP in Japan, never made it to America before now. I got a chance to sit down with Phoenix Spaulding, the […]
E3 2013 Impressions: The Guided Fate Paradox (Sony PlayStation 3)
I didn’t realize before E3 that I’d have a chance to take a look at another Disgaea title… until I realized that it was actually The Guided Fate Paradox. This latest NIS release should appeal to fans of Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger Vs. Darkdeath Evilman on the PSP as it is roguelike in the same vein […]

E3 2012 Impressions: Legasista (Sony PlayStation 3)
Fans of the Cladun series of games should feel right at home with the upcoming Legasista by System Prisma and NIS America. It’s an action RPG with dungeon crawler elements played from a top down perspective, though not quite as retro looking as its predecessors. Legasista takes place in a world that has abandoned science, […]
E3 2012 Impressions: The Witch and the Hundred Knights (Sony PlayStation 3)
The Witch and the Hundred Knights had the rare honor of earning my interest based on name alone. I mean, think about the potential of a name like that. You know there’s going to be a witch involved. Is it a good witch? A bad witch? Do you play as her? And then there are […]
E3 2012 Impressions: Mugen Souls (Sony PlayStation 3)
As much as I like the Disgaea games, I sometimes think of how nice it would be if the humorous over-the-top nature of the games can be applied to a more traditional RPG setting. And wouldn’t you know it, come this fall, the folks at Idea Factory and NIS America are going to deliver. As […]

Phantom Brave: We Meet Again Genre: Tactical RPG Developers: Nippon Ichi Software, System Prisma Publisher: NIS America Release Date: 08/14/2009 Despite being a fan of tactical RPG series such as Shining Force, Fire Emblem and Ogre Battle, I surprisingly haven’t much explored the world of Nippon Ichi.
