Happy Holidays, dood!!! Just dropping in today to wish you all happy holidays and to give a big thanks to all of our fans and everyone that made 2010 an awesome year for us here at NIS America!

NIS America: Happy Holidays

I’m happy to bring a bunch of presents including the Hyperdimension Neptunia trailer! On top of that, we’re also proud to bring some screenshots of Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle for PSP!

Last time I chatted about the basic story of Gamindustri and how it relates to our four lovely goddesses and their journey to save Histoire and Gamindustri. Today, I’d like to turn my focus to some of the other unique features that throw some good ol’ nostalgia and customization into the game. The first one we see in the trailer is the incorporation of a lot of classic SEGA icons such as Alex Kidd, Shinobi, and Space Harrier. During the course of your journey through Gamindustri, you may come across various dungeon bosses who may drop small “Game Discs” as they’re called.

Upon acquisition, they will allow you to customize your battle combinations to add, for example, an Alex Kidd or Space Harrier special summon attack where you can deal some serious late 80’s/Early 90’s damage to your foe. It’s a really nostalgic feature that a lot of the older gamers will appreciate.

Next in the trailer, we come across the use of the “Emblem” and “R/W Discs”. These two features allow a little bit of customization for your character(s). “Emblem” will become available to you early on in the game and its basic premise is you can put your favorite picture or emblem on your character’s posterior. Next we have the “R/W Disc” that will allow you to create your own personal summon to do damage and show your favorite picture AT THE SAME TIME! All you will need to do both is get your favorite pic over to your PS3 and then upload it via the game’s image editor. Endless possibilities and humor will ensue without a doubt. Our QA team and I have flown plenty-a-roflcopter while using these features.

Lastly, two quick cameo characters are shown, one for GUST, and one for Nippon Ichi Software. These characters can join your party to open up alternate stories as each has their own motivation for wandering around Gamindustri. Word on the street is there may be DLC for them to become playable *wink*, but there will be more on DLC next month

Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle

Our last present to give you all this year will be a few quick screenshots of our new Phantom Brave PSP game!! Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle is a port of the Wii version Phantom Brave: We Meet Again – but this time there’s a bunch of new cameos included! Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks we will have a brand spankin’ new website for you all to view along with more screenshots.

  • Luv all the “dood” comments. :-)

  • Hey Ryan!

    Thanks so much for the info! Looking forward to seeing more of the game! However, I have just a couple of questions :)…

    1. Will a demo be released for the game before/after the game comes out?

    2. Are there any major or minor changes between the US version compared to the Japanese version?

    Once again thanks!

  • I’m all over both of these games.

  • Hey, it looks like the NIS America avatars are up. I changed the avatar on my PS3 to the Etna one, but it doesn’t seem to be showing up on the blog yet. weird.

  • i hate games like this

  • I just wanted to say thank you for bringing your games stateside (nowadays more and more companies like to be region exclusive for some reason) for that I give +1 respect to NIS , oh and Merry X-mas doods!

  • Happy Holidays NISA~<3 Thank you for all the games, can't wait

    for Neptunia and Ar Tonelico~!

  • I usually don’t play RPGs (for being too slow for my tastes). But I’m going to try this one, because maybe there is something to this genre that I could get into.
