NIS America Announces Three New Titles For North America
Our good friends at NIS America have announced three new titles for North America. Before I get into the nitty gritty, I just wanted to take this time to post a special message from the producer for Nippon Ichi Software.
My name is Souhei Niikawa, and I am the producer of Nippon Ichi Software.
Thank you very much for coming to NIS America’s press event tonight.
From this year on, Nippon Ichi Software will limit the number of titles we release in a year.
We are doing this to improve the game quality, and also to increase the customer satisfaction.
The games that have been showcased here tonight were strictly selected and developed with this new policy. The first title is Z.H.P. This is our latest dungeon RPG that has been created by the same staff members of Disgaea 3. The project began soon after the release of Disgaea 3 and for 2 years it has been under intense development to formulate the game system. We’re proud to say that Z.H.P. was made to surpass the Disgaea series and, also it is a title with all of our know how’s and ideas we build upon combined in to. To describe how confident we are about this title…
Let’s just say we’re as excited as the time when we first developed Disgaea.
This is a title that we would like to nurture into the level of Disgaea, so please help us.
The 2nd title is Cladun. This is a hack & slash type action RPG.
This title also has some of the same staff members as Disgaea and it is highly addictive.
As our wish it would be great if you can help these 2 titles grow.
Oh and one last thing. This year the latest Disagea will be released in Japan and it will be for the PS3. Plans to make Disagea evolve to a new level and also plans to surprise everybody is in progress. By the time Tokyo Game Show comes around we will be able to release more information, so please look forward to it.
Thank you very much.
Good stuff, no? I’m very pleased to hear this news. I think more game developers should slow down and focus on releasing quality software. So, once again, this is fantastic news for NIS America fans. Now below I’ve compiled three press releases that detail all the information on these brand new titles. On Monday I’ll be creating media pages for each of them showcasing trailers and screenshots so I hope you look forward to that.
