I'm not sure what to make of this new NIS game

Nippon Ichi Software's new title seems to borrow from Minecraft and 3D Dot Game Heroes. The teaser starts off calmly enough, with characters constructing a nice little house, but then it quickly escalates into an invader (?) leaping up int...


Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony comes west in September

At the NIS America event in San Francisco, Danganronpa director Kazutaka Kodaka joked that he was jealous of how well Ace Attorney and Persona sell, but I bet there's some truth behind that. His latest Saw meets Ace...


Review: Disgaea 2 PC

Despite sinking many hours into strategy RPGs (SRPGs) as a kid, I've never had a chance to play the Disgaea series. I've seen buddies play it and have casually followed the games as an onlooker, but the timing and console exclusivity n...

NIS names new Vita game after sex with me

The busy folks over at NIS have announced another new game, World’s Longest 5 Minutes, which, well, I've already done the joke in the headline. Mostly because there's little else to say. It is coming to PS Vita in Japan on July 28 and...

Creepy NIS Vita horror game is actually kind of cute

NIS gets creepy with new teaser

These days, Japanese games being creepy usually has more to do with upskirts than spooks. Fatal Frame couldn't even get squeezed into Nintendo's E3 event. Still, very-anime publisher and developer Nippon Ichi recently uploaded this "New Ti...

Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary

No, that isn't an encoding error up there in the headline: "htoL#NiQ" is indeed this PS Vita game's title, and is essentially a very stylish way to type "The Firefly Diary" in Japanese. Whatever personal peculiarities led the team at Nippon...

Review: The Guided Fate Paradox

One of the greatest things about video games is the opportunity they afford us to take on roles we'd normally never have the chance to do. For example, in The Guided Fate Paradox, the latest from the team that brought us the Disgaea: Hour o...


A new Nippon Ichi action RPG is in the works

We know that Nippon Ichi are working on a new RPG, which is pretty much a given at any time as well as a huge 'no sh*t' kind of thing. But Dengeki PlayStation says its an action RPG. Maybe it's something like the upcoming The Witch and a Hu...

The Guided Fate Paradox headed west on November 5

Though NIS America's last title left much to be desired, I can't help but be overly optimistic for the release of The Guided Fate Paradox. Set to release November 5, the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive roguelike will be available in two e...
