What Game Are NIS America Teasing For Their July Event?

By Ishaan . May 23, 2010 . 4:32pm


NIS America are hosting their annual press event — named Spoiler Party — on July 15th this year. Last year’s press event resulted in the announcement of five games. Judging by NISA’s teaser, we know there’ll be at least one new game this year.


Which game are they teasing? Here’s a hint or two we dug up:

  • OH MY GOD, IS TOO HaRD TO THINK OF SOMETHING!, WHAT GAME COULD IT BE!?, come on Ishaan that clue is too tricky!

    • Giving it away was…kind of the point… >_>

      • I’m joking =P, i should had put some faces in the first post xD, besides, NISA already says everything by themselves lol, darn i wish i could go to that spoiler day T.T

        • BrotherCavil

          Hate to say this, but you’re a pretty obnoxious dude. >:/

          • Hate to say this, but… obnoxious? in the internet? …that is hard to see you know! (this is being sarcastic, see how quickly i change),My point is, you shouldn’t call ppl “names” just because 1 or 2 posts, or better yet, just don’t say stuff like that on the net, is just baseless.

            EDIT: ugh i just realized all the bad grammar i used below, sorry i can’t even edit it T_T, but i hope is at least a little understandable

          • You know I didn’t think your first comment was bad at all, but I’ve changed my mind after you response. Chill, man, it’s just the internet.

          • Oh, im chilled, i just dislike people who just appear just to “insult” other people, is not just with me, i’m always like this when somebody just appear to attack somebody else (couldn’t reply to your post =/)

          • Don’t worry about it; I know you weren’t trying to be obnoxious. :)

  • Ha ha, “Spoiler Party”? That’s cute.

  • Hraesvelgr

    Is it Battletoads?

  • Artavasdus

    This together with the incredibly epic FalcomXSeed deal is probably one of the best news of the year jrpg-wise. An AT3 localization was pretty sure from the start, but having it confirmed clearly doesn’t hurt :P I hope they release the game in some kind of limited edition, but anyway this is day one material for me. That said, I wonder if NiSA has something else in store for us beside AT3… they have two Atelier games (Lina and Judie, aside from the as-of-yet unreleased Totori) and many NiS handheld titles like Antiphona, Classic Dungeon, Zettai Hero, Prinny 2 and La Pucelle Ragnarok to choose from. Personally I hope to see more handheld Atelier goodness, but I will probably support any of those titles.

    • SeventhEvening

      Anything that GUST made is day one for me. I also want Lina and Judie, but just getting AT3 and Atelier Rorona is more than enough for me.

  • It will be more awesome if their other games announcement include something like this :”Atelier : The Alchemist of Arland” pack (contain two Bluray games : Atelier Rorona and Atelier totori) coming soon this fall! or maybe wintersince they published anime why don’t they also try publishing first PS3 VN to states (White Album), or maybe publish tales of Vesperia PS3 because bamco looks like never gonna localized that game!

    • Artavasdus

      While the Arland pack would be a nice collector’s item, why would NiSA sell two games at the price of one, especially when Rorona is going to be released in some months while Totori isn’t even out in Japan and will probably take another year to localize? :PRegarding Vesperia, it seems that Namco doesn’t want to pass any Tales licenses to other publishers, for whatever reason, so it’s Namco USA or nothing, and seeing how much has passed since the japanese release it’s pretty much nothing at this point :Visual novels localizations for home consoles would be very interesting, but I don’t know if there is market for something like White Album in the USA. Maybe some Nitroplus vns on X360 like Chaos Head Noah and Phantom of Inferno remake could be more appealing, but even them would be extremely niche, and on a platform not exactly favoured by western otaku.

      • it doesn’t have at standart one price they could release that pack at 75-80$.majority of X360 VN has PSP/PS2 and almost all of them are PC port so most people that want probably already get or play it in their PC, even STEINS;GATE now ported to PC While I belive there is market for White Album they just need advertise it right, with seiyuu like Mizuki Nana, Hirano Aya, Satou Rina and also PS3 Exclusive!(altough I belive if they remake To Heart there will be more market than white album) also usually japanese game released in the west are selling better in PS3 than in X360, also they could also released a region 3 asia version like they did with localized version of Disgaea 3 to add some sell

  • shion16

    classic dungeon plz!!
    and prinny 2!!

  • superdry

    Even though the game has yet to come out in Japan (I do hope it’s actually semi-decent though) that I would like NIS to localize is that Project Neptune RPG from Compile Heart (maybe Aksys can take a stab at it).

    Anywho…wahoo that AT3 is coming out here. I guess 1 and 2 have sold enough to warrant number 3, but in this day and age who knows.

    • Artavasdus

      I agree regarding Neptune, seeing how the game sports personifications of software houses like NiS, Gust and IF I don’t think anyone but NiSA could localize it.

      Regarding AT3, in Japan it has sold more than any of the first two chapters. Sales figure for the western releases of AT1 and 2 are not available, as far as I know.

    • SeventhEvening

      I’d like to see Neptune get localization as well. I’d say that’s a ways off though.

  • Ereek

    July this year?

    Why so late?

    • Yeah I was wondering this at first too, but I think it’s probably better for NIS. It’s too close to E3 now and it looks like the show will be quite the circus this year with new hardware. Better for smaller publishers to lay low until after, maybe?

  • Simon

    I want Zetta Hero, and really hoping they talk more about Atelier Rorona soon

  • All I want is Prinny 2.

  • I guess this means I have to beat Ar Tonelico 2 before this comes out. I just bought part one after playing Cross Edge.

  • July 15th? Gee that sounds far. Guess no Classic Dungeon / Zettai Hero for 2010?

    • Don’t worry.

      • Artavasdus

        I love how your posts on Siliconera sometimes are news in their own right, unofficial and vague as they may be XD

        I look forward to them, but I hope NiSA gives us some Atelier handheld goodness too ;__;

        • They already did, and it wasn’t too good.


  • zhemos

    Wha!! you gave it away so easy! I though the policy of Siliconera was to tease and make suffer while you laugh behind your PC’s at us!

    Oh well, AT3 yay!!!!

    • Haha, only when we’re not supposed to say what it is! In this case, I think NISA expected people to figure it out by themselves sooner or later, judging by that first pic. We just found the answer. :P

    • Hahahaha. Ishaan, did you tell him about our rules?

      • raymk

        lol you guys are cruel man really cruel. OH well AT3 is coming YAY!!

  • nyoron

    Yes!! At the moment this game is at the top of my personal most wanted list. I figured it would be coming eventually but getting confirmation is great.

    Now then… please spend more time on QA for this one than you did on the last one, NISA.

  • Slashlen

    Nice, but July 15th is too far away. I want my AT3 now!

  • idofgrahf

    So in other words, Ar tonelico III is coming state side, those picture are after all, the two main female leads in III. Just hope there will not be any game breaking bug in III.

  • runesong

    Yessss!! ^_^

    This news is made of win!

  • Im really truly excited for this, cant wait! thanks NISA

  • NISA you guys are epic!Does that mean the release will be in July? or the actual announcement? im guessing it will be the announcement :(, i want this now

    • Ereek

      Their press conference is going to be in July. NISA usually announces a few games at each press conference, as well as their announcements throughout the year. The conference is similar to E3 in that it’s actually meant to appease the investors, but we get something out of it, too.

  • Feynman

    I’ve never left a comment here at Siliconera before, but knowing that AT3 is on it’s way feels me with glee. I’ve got my fingers crossed for Prinny 2 and Classic Dungeon as well. Go NIS go!

  • 5parrowhawk

    Would have been funnier with the Prinnies doing the Buri Hamachi dance.

    I mean, they’re penguins, right? Dancing around with fish makes perfect sense.

  • Nico87

    Reckon they will announce Atelier Rorona, Ar tonelico III, and of course Prinny 2.

    • Ereek

      Erm, Atelier Rorona was announced last year. Do you mean Atelier Totori?

      • Nico87

        My bad!

  • Zeonsilt

    Yeeeeeees! AT3!

  • nyobzoo

    July event? Let’s see, Trinity Universe in Summer, Rorona in the fall and hopefully AT3 in the winter but most likely going to be early 2011 :(

  • Prinny 2 plz, plz, plz! Seriously that’s the only game I care about now ^_^

  • masuto

    OMG, it’s Sailor Moon! I always wanted a PS3 Sailor Moon game! Fighting evil by moonlight!~ Winning love by daylight!~

  • cmurph666

    DISGAEA 4~!!!

  • Ar Tonelico 3, definitely. By the way, are you guys seriously thinking that the IP owner, Namco Bandai, would bring this out to America? That’s as far-fetched as seeing other Namco Bandai games with a small name than Dragonball, being brought over by Namco Bandai itself outside Japan. Feel free to shatter scouters, out of frustration.

  • Genjo

    i know whats the other shadow picture is XDhttp://nippon1.jp/consumer/classicdungeon/if ya go under character section the hair style is same as the shadow shape next to the AR Tonelico girls XD

  • What´s the meme?

    I think.

    Why did they feel the need to make this happen now? I´m as much broke as anyone can be and they release one of the most wanted games ever?

    I don´t know if I should cry tears of joy or sadness.

    Time to start recycling some soda cans. To gain the money this hopefully premium pack will cost…
