Earlier this week during Anime Expo, NISA held their panel detailing both previously announced as well as unannounced titles that the company plans to publish in the future. Although a good portion of the panel was focused on highlighting NISA titles that were already slated to come out in the next few months, the company didn't hesitate to unveil a few more releases dates for previously announced titles, some new Limited Editions for previously announced titles, as well as new titles that the company will be publishing in the west within the coming months/year.

Demon Gaze II

The sequel to 2014's Experience Inc DRPG release. To explain the overall plot setup for the title would actually spoil the ending of the first game, but the important news is that the title will be coming to both North America and Europe this Fall, as a PlayStation Vita in addition to a new PlayStation 4 release. We've embedded the trailer below. The game will have a Limited Edition release available on both platforms.

Penny-Punching Princess

Originally released last year in Japan as "Princess is Money-Hungry", Penny-Punching Princess is an isometric brawler that focuses on one focal mechanic - money! By popping out your handy pocket calculator, the Princess can buy anything, and use it to her disposal. Monster giving you trouble? Buy them. Want to turn a trap against an enemy? Buy it. The title will be receiving a Limited Edition release on Nintendo Switch when it releases next year. The game will also be available on PlayStation Vita when it releases next Spring.

The Longest Five Minutes

NISA actually announced this game a while back, and we reported on it then. The game has been delayed from a 2017 release to Early 2018, but will now also come out on Nintendo Switch. Much like the other titles announced during the panel, The Longest 5 Minutes will have a Limited Edition release. Similarly to Penny-Punching Princess, it'll be exclusive to Nintendo Switch. As previously announced, the game will also be available digitally on PlayStation Vita and PC.

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows

Much like The Longest 5 Minutes, Yomawari: Midnight Shadows was already announced prior to the panel - however NISA took the opportunity to confirm the title's release date. The title will receive a Limited Edition release on both PlayStation 4 and Vita when it releases on October 24th in North America, and October 27th in Europe. A digital Steam release will also be available.
