Nippon Ichi Teases Four Future Titles

By Spencer . August 8, 2011 . 9:20pm

prinny On top of Disgaea 3 Return, a PlayStation Vita port, Nippon Ichi has four more games in the pipeline. A feature in Dengeki PlayStation has a few hints.


One title is an action RPG with 3D graphics and full polygons. This title is being made by the Prinny: Can I Really be the Hero? group. We’ll hear more about this title in a month. The Disgaea team is also working on a new title using their know how with internet connectivity and experience from Disgaea 4. A famous illustrator is working with them as a character designer. System Prisma, makers of the ClaDun games, is also working on a new title. Dengeki PlayStation did not specify platforms for these titles.


The fourth title is a popular Nintendo 3DS game overseas will be released in Japan. Cave Story 3D, perhaps? As of now it has not been announced for Japan and NIS America is tied to it.


An interview snippet also mentions Nippon Ichi is interested in making a PlayStation Vita sequel to Criminal Girls. However, they can’t imagine doing it without [Kazuya] Niinou, so this won’t happen for some time.


I suppose this is a good time to mention we have an interview with Nippon Ichi president Souhei Niikawa coming up…

  • I’m personally most interested in knowing what the action RPG is going to be like. I mean, sure, I’m definitely curious on Disgaea team’s efforts, and I love me some Cladun, so I’m curious on them, but an action RPG from the Prinny team? I just wonder what will be involved with that.

    “One title is an action RPG with 3D graphics and full polygons. This title is being made by the Prinny: Can I Really be the Hero? group.” 

    hmmm very relevant to my interests; but always interested to see what Nippon Ichi has on the go >w<' But I can't help but feel like the Prinny! series has been superb and they should consider doing more action titles owo;

      Unlosing Ranger: Can I Really be the Hero?

    Criminal Girls is perfect for Vita. Spank back touch panel for… uh… spanking.

  • will you have a questionnaire? because id like to ask some questions about disgaea 3 dlc(but im sure you guys area are already got that much covered lol)

    maybe you could get some dlc info, and maybe what changes will be made to the game systems(if any are tacking place)

    also yay prinny 3!(im guessing on this one lol)

  • robomega0201

    NIS is making a polygonal game???  Isn’t that one of the signs of the apocalypse?

  • fuzaco

    That action-RPG sounds interesing. I wonder what platform they are making that for.

  • Arcm

    Looks like I’ll be getting a PSVita sooner than later : )

  • Ask if there’s a chance of criminal girls coming overseas…

    • Guest

      Highly unlikely unless they want to commit suicide.

  • Sweet <3

  • Draparde

    I wonder if all 4 will be games im intrested in. i’m excited now lol

  • sandra10

    Is it safe to assume that at least two out of the four games will be on the Vita?

  • None of those seem to fit the ideal of a ZHP sequel :(

  • no zhp sequel? :|

  • Ben Tan

    what would be cool is Arc system works and NIS collaboration to make a 2d high res fighting game in the vein of blazblue using NIS characters.

    just imagine laharl vs zetta in hd!

    Mwa haha ahaha haaha~!! Mao’s Triumphant Return~!!

    Tell the prez I want save compatibility between the PS3 and Vita versions of Disgaea 3, so I don’t lose my 4 million hours worth of save data.

    Also, the name Disgaea 3 Return has got to go. Call it Disgaea 3: Presence of Injustice or something.

    • I imagine there will be a new subtitle when/if it comes to America. They have a habit of doing that!

  • Methylene

    … I thought Criminal Girls didn’t do well, or was I mistaken?

    • Darkrise

      It did about average I think and that was only in the 1st week. By now the sales should be a lot high enough for them to even talk about a sequel.

  • DarkWaterClone

    I hope one is Makai Wars & the other one will be La Pucelle 2. Seeing as NISA never brought the first one out it would suck if they pass on that one too. But I think if LP2 comes out NISA would bring it out.

    I am going to guess two will be for the Vita & one for the PS3. Unless out of the three games they count making the same game as one for the PS3 & Vita. Which then would be pretty cool. This way if people want to play the game on the TV they can & if they want to take it on the go they can do that too.

    I really hope that is what it is. Three games coming out but really working on six games. Just the six only count as three.

  • Hope at least some of this stuff makes it’s way to the PS3 via the PSP Remaster series. NIS really needs to realize that western gamers don’t care for the PSP. And that, if early sales are any indication, we’re none too hot on the 3DS too.
