Makai Wars OOOO This Summer, Teases Nippon Ichi

By Spencer . April 1, 2013 . 12:10am

imageCould the long awaited Makai Wars game (or movie?) finally come out? Nippon Ichi is teasing an announcement that says Makai Wars OOOO is set for summer. The "OOOO" is probably a placeholder. Perhaps for a subtitle?


Interesting, but this is April Fool’s Day in Japan, so let’s keep our expectations in check. The teaser site says we’ll get more information on April 5.

  • Ayaka

    If this is (as unfortunately I suppose it will) an April Fool’s joke I’m gonna cry
    Quite the right day you pick to make this sort of announcement, NIS.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Poor Asagi — I suspect someone at Nippon Ichi has it in their last will and testament that she is to be trolled by a descendant of said dev 100 years from now.

  • Arcm

    I’m both excited and skeptical at the same time. Why must this news be released on April fools day.

  • Chris Yuen

    Asagi: ” *sniff* I’m finally really going to become the main character of my own game!?”
    NIS: “April Fool!”
    Asagi: “Aww…”

    Poor Asagi…forever made fun of as a joke by Nippon Ichi…

    • Testsubject909

      You forgot the part where she shoots NISA on her flat chest in revenge.

      Edit: With a gun… Just felt like making sure nobody got the wrong idea here.

  • Go2hell66

    April Fools!

  • No. No way. Obvious prank is too obvious.

    There’s just NO WAY they’re giving Asagi her own game. It can’t happen.

  • AkuLord3

    This soo better not be a April Fools…cuz damn it NIS that would hurt ;C

  • If this is an April Fool’s joke, then it’s salt to wounds.. Especially for Asagi.

    • Testsubject909

      Well, more for the Asagi fans.

  • Laith Rem

    I love this. On one hand, thanks to an earlier piece of news, this could be real. On the other hand, it is Asagi so it could be fake. The fact that there is a follow up date gives both hope and despair at the same time.

    Bravo NIS, bravo.

  • Chiupon

    *throws self off bridge*
    if i threaten self harm, do you think she’ll get own game?

    • Testsubject909

      Probably not.

  • Punny Fuzz

    I dunno guys… is April fools even a commonly celebrated holiday in Japan?


    • Mr_SP

      It is. To a degree, at least.

    • Yup.

  • Isaac Newton

    Best April Fools Message!
    My best guess that this will be a cross over Kamen Rider OOO.

  • kool_cid414

    I’m starting to get depressed for Asagi I do want her to have her own game one day.

  • Duo Maxwell

    Is it only me, or the first thing that those OOOO remind me is “F.A.K.E”?

  • BadenBadenPrinny


  • ragingmerifes

    I knew it already. My waifu always tell me stuff like that.

    Now, seriously, that is big news. I can’t even imagine what this title will be like or at least will be. It could be a movie, a dungeon crawler RPG or a board game for iOS, and I will still love it. But I am expecting, personally, a heroic turn-based RPG that plays with common clichés and is self-conscious like most NIS games.

  • Anime10121

    Dont. want. to. give. in. to. April. Fools. day. joke. :(

    Nisa why must you create a false hope within me ;_;

    Unless of course its actually REAL, and in that case- GO ASAGI!!!!
    But honestly though, I half expect Nis to troll Asagi to the point that if Makai Wars ever DOES come out, Asagi will STILL not be the main character.

  • Now count me as another one who git curious. I hope its true lol.

  • They did say they were interested in her having her own game, unless that was a long set up for a April Fools joke.

  • Elvick

    This is why I believe that this day should not exist.

    • Agreed 10000000000000000 times over. >_>

  • I believe nor trust not a thing anyone says until tomorrow….

  • zferolie

    Being Asagi is suffering

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    O_o i………. can’t believe the day is finally coming lol.^_^

  • Natat

    C’mon NIS, you couldn’t have picked another day to announce a game with Asagi huh? I fear this is just April Fools, but I’ve been fooled by April Fools “actually not jokes” before.

  • Mavalex

    I don’t know anymore man D:

    I thought the “OOOO” stands for “OOOOHHH MAN this might be happening”

  • Herok♞

    The worst part is they asked fans if we wanted Asagi to have her game recently, so this might be legit. What I sadly see being the case is the game being real but Asagi not being the main character.

  • DesmaX

    Makai Wars OOOO confirmed for PS4

  • NIS + Asagi + April Fool’s Day = Fake This is almost worse than last year’s fiasco on a certain site.

  • Josué Pedro Soares

    April’s fool joke, for sure.

  • April Fools without a doubt.

  • Göran Isacson

    Ha ha, isn’t it sad Asagi >3 ?

  • Gabriel Alberto Romero Rojas

    As of this post the date in Japan is 2nd of April, the teaser site is still in the Nippon Ichi homepage.

    Is there still hope?

  • Punny Fuzz

    Hey, Maybe the April fools joke is that this isn’t a joke?

    right? RIGHT!?

    (ノಥ益ಥ)ノ︵ ┻━┻ ┻━┻ ┻━┻ ┻━┻ ┻━┻ ┻━┻ ┻━┻︵( .o.)

    • Testsubject909

      Never did see a shmup where you played as a crying angry dude shooting flipped tables at unidentifiable blob faced beings running for dear life…

      What’s the name of the game?

  • kaizin

    ouch i feel really bad for Asagi if this turns out to be a April fools joke.

    • Testsubject909

      Asagi never being a main protagonist tends to be the joke.

      A teaser of a possible game where Asagi is the protagonist released on April’s Fool’s day…


  • Warboss Aohd

    i’m not sure if dis iz a joke or not…….probably iz.

  • ZekeFreek

    This is probably too obvious to just be an April Fools joke. Given what massive trolls NIS are, there might actually be something to this.

    Of course… if they know that we know that they know that we know that they know that we know that they know that we know that they know that we know that they know that we know they know that we know that they know that we know that they know that we know they know that we know that they know that we know that they know that we know…

  • Deva Ashera

    Just watch, the real April Fools Joke will be that they thought no one would believe it.
