During its annual press event today, publisher NIS America announced plans to release four new titles, “Battle Princess of Arcadias”, “Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited”, “Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair” and “Fairy Fencer F”, in North America later this year.
Developed by Nippon Ichi Software, “Battle Princess of Arcadias” is a side-scrolling, beat-em-up, action-RPG that will put players in the shoes of Battle Princess Plume, who is forced to take action and battle back the monsters that have overrun the kingdom of Schwert. As players destroy their enemies, they will be able to enhance their character through an extensive upgrade system, upgrading weapons and unlocking new powerful skills. NIS America will release “Battle Princess of Arcadias” later this year on the PlayStation 3, via the PlayStation Network.
“Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited” shouldn’t need too much explanation for fans of the series, but just in case, “A Promise Revisited” is an expanded and enhanced version of the Strategy RPG, “Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten”, which was originally released on the PlayStation 3 in 2011. Gamers can look for “Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited”, which will include new characters, spells, job specific techniques, music, and scenarios, as well as all of the DLC that was available for the PlayStation 3 version, in the summer of 2014 for the PlayStation Vita, both physically and digitally via the PSN.
“Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair” is the sequel to the recently released Spike Chunsoft Co., Ltd. developed PlayStation Vita adventure game, “Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc”. Players will once again take on the role of a Hope’s Peak Academy” student, but this time around they will be heading to Jabberwock Island with their classmates on school trip. As everyone starts to relax and have fun, Monokuma returns and restarts his deadly game. “Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair” will be available in the fall of 2014 for the PlayStation Vita, both in physical and digital, via the PSN, form.
Developed by Compile Heart, “Fairy Fencer F” is a turn-based RPG that follows Fang, a young man who has his life changed forever when he pulls a Fury, highly sought after weapons created by the Goddess and Vile God containing the life force of a fairy, from a stone. The game features concept art by Yoshitaka Amano, character art by Tsunako and music from Nobuo Uematsu, who you may recognize from their work on the “Final Fantasy” series. “Fairy Fencer F” will be released both digitally, via the PSN, and physically for the PlayStation 3 later this year.
More details about all of these titles will likely be released as their release dates draw near.
