Ben Sheene / Feb 14th, 2014 No Comments
NIS America announced their acquisition of four new titles for North America and Europe at a recent press event. Battle Princess of Arcadias, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited and Fairy Fencer F. The four titles are planned for release throughout 2014.
Battle Princess of Arcadias takes players to the kingdom of Schwert, a once peaceful land now overrun by monsters. As Battle Princess Plume, players will recruit a group of warriors to fight against enemies and take on huge bosses in epic siege battles. Battle Princess of Arcadias also features an extensive system for upgrades for both equipment and skills. By collecting weapons and materials from fallen enemies, players can enhance their gear; new skills can also be unlocked for weapons and if they level up enough, they can transform into more powerful forms. Developed by Nippon Ichi Software, the game features colorful art and 2D brawler gameplay, similar to last year’s Dragon Crown. Battle Princess of Arcadias is planned for a release later in 2014 on the PlayStation Network, exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
[adsense250itp]Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is the sequel to the recently released mystery adventure game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Danganronpa 2 again features classmates from Hope’s Peak Academy but instead of being trapped in the school, they are now trapped on Jabberwock Island. Their only way to leave the island and escape the nefarious bear Monokuma is to kill a fellow classmate and get away with it. The familiar visual novel format returns as players discover the secrets of the island, investigate murders and participate in new minigames to get to the bottom of who is guilty and who is not. Developed by Spike Chunsoft, Danganronpa 2 is planned for a Fall 2014 release in both the U.S. and Europe. It will release in both physical and digital formats for the PlayStation Vita.
Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is an expanded and enhanced version of Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten, which originally released on the PS3 in 2011. Because A Promise Revisited will be released on the PS Vita, players can now have all their Disgaea 4 action on the go. The enhanced version will feature tons of bonus content that adds to the core game’s experience. New scenarios will help add further backstory for the game’s characters, new characters will be introduced along with some from previous Disgaea games, new spells and jobs are just one of the many ways gameplay is being enhanced. Bonus music tracks have been added as well, packing the game with almost 100 tracks. Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is planned for a Summer 2014 release.
Fairy Fencer F is a turn-based RPG featuring concept art by Yoshitaka Amano, character art by Tsunako and music by Nobuo Uematsu, who are are definitely known for their work on past Final Fantasy games. Fairy Fencer F tells the story of warriors called “Fencers” who seek weapons known as “Furies.” These weapons were created by the Goddess and Vile God–two opposing forces engaged in war long ago–and are infused with their power and the life force of a fairy. Anyone who collects a Fury weapon is rumored to be granted one wish. Then one day, a man named Fang becomes a Fencer after pulling a Fury from a stone, changing his destiny forever. The game will feature plenty of weapon and skill customization to help players unleash massive combos on their foes. Developed by Compile Heart, the game also has a similar visual style to their past titles, such as the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. Fairy Fencer F will be available both physically and digitally for the PS3 sometime this Fall.
It was also revealed that Nippon Ichi Software is developing a new game for the PlayStation 4. No details were given outside that announcement, except that more will be revealed sometime at September’s Tokyo Game Show.
