Tonight was NIS America’s press event, and we’ve got a recap of everything new we learned from tonight’s livestream!
First off; Tokyo Tattoo Girls was the companies first new announcement, coming to both PlayStation Vita and Steam. Players participate in a Tokyo turf war, and use magical tattoos to power up their chosen girl – the game releases this summer.
After that, Disgaea 5 Complete’s release date was revealed; the Nintendo Switch port that includes all the game’s DLC releases in the west on May 23rd.
The next new title that was announced was Culdcept Revolt! This title, a mix between a board game and a card game, was released by Nintendo in Japan. NIS America is collaborating with them to release it in the west for Nintendo 3DS this summer. Also on 3DS, RPGMaker FES is coming this summer as well, and will allow players to create pocket sized RPGs all on their 3DS.
God Wars: Future Past is coming March 28th on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
Touhou: Gensou Wanderer, a Mystery Dungeon-esque Roguelike is releasing March 21st on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The title will have some DLC scenarios released around launch to compliment the main game.
Along with that Touhou game, Touhou: Double Focus – a metroidvania-styled game – is also coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita the same date.
Touhou: Kobuto V: Burst Battle, a 3D fighter – with at least 9 characters, and featuring local multiplayer (and PlayStation VR support on PS4) is releasing this Summer for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
After all of that Touhou news, NIS America went all out on a barrage of news regarding Danganronpa. Danganronpa 1-2 Reloaded will feature both Danganronpa 1 and Danganronpa 2 when it releases on PlayStation 4 on March 14th, but will also receive Danganronpa 3 (I’m assuming the Anime, here) sometime after launch. Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is coming June 27th to PlayStation 4 as well (we reviewed the game’s initial Vita release back in 2015). Danganronpa V3 Killing Harmony finally received a western release date, slated for September 26th of this year. A bit of a gap between the Japanese and western releases, but NISA will also be releasing a demo for the title, featuring the main characters from Danganronpa 1 and 2. This little segment of the livestream capped off with a bit of a surprise - there were very little details, but apparently a Danganronpa film is coming this year, as well.
The Silver Case’s PlayStation 4 release is going to differ from the title PC release, and shall include new story content, more music tracks – including both entirely new tracks as well as remixes – and more. It releases April 18th in the west.
Finally, last but definitely not least, NIS America has picked up Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for localization. Both the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 releases of the title will come over, alongside a newly announced Steam release. The title will be getting Limited Edition’s on both PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4.
That about wraps it up for all of the new information from tonight's event! We'll keep you up to date as more information for these titles continue to come in.
