Disgaea 4 Coming to PS Vita, NISA 2014 Lineup Detailed

Last night, the small but spunky team at NIS America reminded downtown San Francisco of its dedication to quirky JRPGs and unusual adventures. Sporting matching white and blue “Dood” jerseys, the team presented its lineup for 2014 at a local venue, with a little help from a torrent of teaser trailers. Anime in-jokes, self-referential dialogue, and explosions of color dominated the multimedia showcase, staying true to NISA’s tradition of catering to otaku culture.

The evening began with NIS President Souhei Niikawa — donning a regal Prinny hat — thanking members of the press for their continued support. Niikawa also revealed that NIS is working on a PS4 game that would enjoy a proper announcement at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.

His brief but humble wishes were followed with a host of trailers, each representing one of NISA’s projects for the year.

PS Vita — Summer 2014

The rich and engrossing strategy RPG returns to PS Vita. The latest in the long-running, cult-classic series, A Promise Revisited packs tremendous amounts of content into one portable experience.

The PS Vita follow-up features all the downloadable content from the PS3 version, brand new scenarios, new characters, and additional musical tracks (making for more than 100, total). Along with another tier of spells and job techniques, A Promise Revisited looks to be the definitive version of Disgaea 4.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye DespairDanganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

PS Vita — Fall 2014

On the heels of the fun and sinister original, NIS America announced Danganronpa 2 would be coming to the states later this year.

As the Hope’s Peak Academy class travels to a tropical paradise for a “heart-throbbing school trip,” the murderous bear Monokuma returns to play his deadly game of truth and lies. New characters, new mini-games, and a new tribal council make up this unique story. Prepare for the same dark humor and intrigue when Goodbye Despair comes to PS Vita.

One of the new game announcements emerging from the event, NIS America pulled the curtain back on its latest acquisition: Fairy Fencer F.

With concept art by famed designer Yoshitaka Amano and music by legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu, Fairy Fencer F tells the story of a great battle between the Goddess and the Vile God. Long sealed away, the weapons fashioned by these two deities remain scattered throughout the world. As the young man Fang pulls one such weapon — called a Fury — from a stone, he finds his destiny forever changed.

Battle Princess of Arcadias

Employ an ample number of skills, weapons, and collectable gear in massive boss battles and team-based fights.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight

PS3 — March 2014

The Forest Witch and the Swamp Witch have been bickering for 100 years. Fortunately for the Swamp Witch, she just uncovered a legendary soldier deep in slumber. Suddenly the century-long feud has tipped in her favor.

Play as the Hundred Knight, and serve the Swamp Witch Metallia in her goal of covering the entire world in mud. Equip five weapons simultaneously and chain attacks together to unleash devastating combos on Metallia’s enemies.

Demon GazeDemon Gaze

Demon Gaze

PS Vita — April 2014

Explore labyrinthine dungeons in this first-person RPG. Fight battles with screen-popping art, brimming with up-beat Japanese rock and adorable inn owners.

May or may not include a dragon princess. Spoilers: it does include a dragon princess.

Mugen Souls Z

Mugen Souls Z

PS3 — 2014

The Undisputed God of the Universe, Chou-Chou, returns with a brand new story. A direct sequel to the original Mugen Souls, this turn-based RPG features a hero with an empty coffin on her back (and, apparently, an empty head).

One of the silliest trailers on display last night, Mugen Souls Z allows players to enslave their enemies with a “fetish pose,” and inflict billions of points of damage in over-the-top attacks. A rainbow-colored barrage to the senses.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Producing Perfection

Hyperdimension Neptunia Producing Perfection

PS Vita — 2014

The first “idol simulation” from the team at NIS, Producing Perfection allows players to help produce the idol careers of the young ladies from Hyperdimension Neptunia.

Help the stars master the art of singing, dancing, and promoting themselves in order to win fame and adoration.

After watching NIS America’s presentation, there’s no doubt that the team continues to showcase its familiarity with niche game genres and it’s fervid love of the community around them. PlayStation.Blog will continue its coverage of the above games as they approach their respective launches, dood.

    Actually, I’ve only heard of Idolm@aster. I don’t know much about it, honestly, just that it’s a music game/anime series and that Neptunia PP has similar gameplay.

    Despite a certain comment above, I’m quite excited for the game!

  • More games in general is always a good thing in my book … Despite what others may say … Some people are never happy :o)

  • I don’t usually get into RPG’s but i like the art style … Probably cause I am an anime fan :o)

  • It makes me sad I have to wait until TGS to find out what NISA has up their sleeves xD

  • Sept 18th is a long way off still thats for sure

  • I’ve been waiting for this! Thank you, based NISA for bringing D4 to the Vita. Please continue to bring good games to the West and we shall support you to our best.

    The audience is Niche, but we will be there for you.

  • I will look into fencer F. I already got demon gaze pre ordered and the first part of Danganronpa has come in. I will not be buying battle princess since there is no dub.

  • I am stoke on NISAmerica right now. What a great line up and so many for the Vita. This seriously is the year of the JRPG localization.

    Props to all the hard work that goes out for this stuff. It’s MUCH appreciated!

  • Love you NISA, you are the reason I own anything from the Playstation Brand.
    Hope you got some nice LE in store for us!

  • I swear to god Im gonna buy ALL those games but Demon Gaze, I hate 1st person RPG but all the others are so cool!

  • @29, you’re right, I fully forgot that they’ll likely be doing that, hopefully if IFI isn’t and it’s NISA the wait isn’t too long. I’d prefer NISA cause I want a physical version so I’m glad to hear why IF isn’t likely doing it, cause it will likely be digital only otherwise. Guess I’ll just have to hope

  • I know I’m mostly echoing many of the previous comments, but I just want to thank NISA for announcing Dangan Ronpa 2’s localisation so soon and the lineup of JRPGs coming this year. I wish more JRPGs are coming to Vita as well.

  • Awesome just awesome.
    NISA could totally boost sales or at least raise more awareness of their games by having their current games on PSN on sale like Disgaea 1 and 2 PSP versions. Let them know if you can guys!

  • Will get everything but Battle Arcadia and Mugen Soul Z.

    Very Happy, with Danganronpa 2, enjoying the first one. Reminds me of the Assassination Classroom Manga(maybe NISA could make a alternate Dangonronpa game on that Octopus Teacher everyone needs to kill to save the world. It similar as everyone has a skill, and there are colorful characters like in Tirgger Happy Havoc).

    Will Pre-order the 2nd one as well. I hope.

    Disgaea 4 already have it on PS3 and will never be touched if keep stalling on the first Disgaea.

    Hyperdimension Neptunia, I hope it is a physical release not like Atelier Ayesha Plus. Since it is an individual title instead of a port, I hope.

    Witch and the Hundred Knights seems like Ni No Kuni without the hold your hand mentality.

  • At this point NISA owns my wallet, soon my life will follow…


  • Oh Damn! Disgaea 4 on Vita?! I luv NISA! I mean all NISA games are awesome! If only Soul Nomad gets a VIta port…

  • Awesome! i have weakness for anime style

  • Good day!
    May I check with you, when will this game Makaisenki Disgaea 4 Return full game ENGLISH version will be release ?
    As for now, there is a Japanese Version for this game in the PSVita store.
    I am a big fans of Disgaea, unfortunately Japanese version will be a big challenge to me.
    Hope to get your reply soon. Thank you!

  • Super Danganronpa 2!
    Can’t wait to play this game. :D

  • Oh great, more awful localizations!
