NIS America held their annual press conference tonight where they announce new titles and solidify release dates for other titles, and they’ve delivered spectacularly!
The conference started with some release dates, including The Firefly Diary hitting West on Vita on 24th Feb (NA) and 4th Mar (EU), The Awakened Fate Ultimatum arrives after on PS3 on 17th Mar (NA) and 20th Mar (EU), and Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy has been delayed until 9th June (NA) and 5th June (EU) exclusively on Vita.
Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance has been confirmed to head West and is slated for a Winter release, although Japan will have it on 26th Mar if you can’t wait and want to import. This isn’t a shock to anybody as they’d previously announced that it’ll be heading West, but it’s nice to have a timeframe to look forward to and it’s still exclusive to PS4. There’s also the games first official English trailer!
The highly-anticipated Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is the next big game on the list, releasing in the West later this year during Winter exclusively on Vita. The team apparently began making Another Episode when they were stumped for ideas on DR3, and they wanted to challenge themselves by making a spin-off third-person shooter-inspired title set between the events of DR1 and DR2 featuring Komaru Naegi, the sister of DR1 protagonist Makoto Naegi, and the returning Toko Fukawa.
The last game, Rodea the Sky Soldier, will be heading to Wii U and 3DS and is an action-platforming game set in the skies; it looks similar to Kid Icarus: Uprising and Nights. Kid Icarus was a bit of a pain to play on 3DS, so hopefully Rodea the Sky Soldier feels more comfortable to play – Wii U shouldn’t have the same problem though.
I’m mostly excited for Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls – which I love the localised title of – as it’s one of my favourite series’ but all of the information from tonight’s NIS America event has made me happy, bar the delay to Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy, of course.
