Prinny You Can Be The Hero, Just Wait Until February OK?

By Spencer . November 4, 2008 . 6:39pm

patiny Like we reported in September, NIS America will publish Prinny and it’s getting an equally awesome name here. In North America the game will be known as Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? and it’s scheduled to come out on February 17, around three months after the Japanese release which comes out later this month. Unlike NIS America’s other games, Prinny is a side scrolling action game where you control a single Prinny, but have 1,000 extra Prinnies (read: lives) in your reserve. If that isn’t challenging enough Prinny has Hell Mode where every hit means instant death. In normal mode each Prinny has three life points. I think I’ll stick with normal mode for my first playthrough since NIS America describes Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? as “tough-as-nails”. I can’t wait for the challenge and spider crab tanks.

    Well in my case, I’ll definitely be dusting off the ole’ PSP in February. Totally buying this DAY ONE. Proof that 2D gaming has yet to die!

    Alongside Ys I&II, February is already shaping up to be a sweet little month.

  • I know that Prinny on the cover is fearing for it’s life, but it looks bad-ass!!

    ^ You must be joking. If not, just be grateful we’re getting it.

    And yeah he’s totally bad-ass, I love his tiny little legs… that’s really good cover art, thumbs up NISA.

    Wonder if they’re planning a simultaneous Prinny/Mana Khemia release like they did with Disgaea/Rhapsody DS??

    DOOD! LOL! Awsome looking game & 2D to boot. Hopefully he gets to fight Laharl.

  • Ugh

    The title just needs “d00d” tagged on at the end to be perfect.
