Nippon Ichi Teases Two Games Fans Have Been Waiting For Will Be Revealed This Week

By Spencer . July 9, 2013 . 1:13am

imageMakai Wars Live is one of Nippon Ichi Software’s 20th anniversary projects and it’s a stage show event. Nippon Ichi gave a little tease of what to expect in Dengeki PlayStation magazine, which says two games that fans have made many requests for will be announced at Makai Wars Live.


Our bet is Asagi will finally get her very own video game, but that’s only one title. What do you think the two games will be?


Makai Wars Live takes place this weekend on July 13 at Yokohama Blitz.

  • ‘Our bet is Asagi will finally get her very own video game’

    Boy, you’re in trouble betting that.

    • Asagi must be begging and on her knees. Cannot blame the poor lass for being depraved of that coveted lead character spot after so many games.

  • Will it finally be the Soul Nomad portable version?

    I really hope so.

    • Pinkemon

      Yeah, me too. I’m one of those people who never got a PS2 and would otherwise have to use the computer as a PS2 emulator. Of course, it means I can legally buy the disc anyway but it’d be pretty nice if there was an enhanced remake.

      • brian

        I hope they’d localize it, thought I doubt it would be remade, just ported.

        • Pinkemon

          Well, I figured it’d be a remake in a way that the Disgaea portable ports are, so I guess not entirely a remake but a port with extra content. Though I’d be fine with it if there was no extra content too.

  • Raze


    I’ll laugh sooooo hard If Asagi isn’t the MC in one of those two games…

    I can live with Soul Nomad 2 or something near that though…

  • Asagi to get her own game? Wishful thinking?

  • Hau To

    Could one be the long awaited La Pucelle 2? As for the other one, I’m not sure. Makai Kingdom 2 or….?

  • WyattEpp

    The suspense is terrible!

    …I hope it’ll last.

  • Sardorim

    I know I’m being set up for disappointment but I choose to believe that one of the games announced will have Asagi as Main Character.

  • Go2hell66

    this asagi trolling has got to stop

    • It’s been going on for a decade. Why do you think the joke would stop now?

  • admeister

    Soul Nomad 2 and Makai Kingdom 2, please!

    • AkuLord3

      Those would be VERY NICE

    • Mar Mar

      I miss Gig ><

      • Raze

        They should make a continuation from the ending where Gig become a female…
        And the story will be Gig’s adventure to become a male again…


    • Sergio Briceño

      Yeah they are most definitely sequels.

  • Betrayer

    No, don’t do it. I have enough games to play. STOP EATING MY MONEY!

    • Anime10121

      I’m a masochist, HURT ME MORRREEEEEE!!!

  • Guest

    A new Mana Khemia?

  • Guest

    A new Mana Khemia?

    • That would be GUST, not Nippon Ichi. Mana Khemia is an Atelier spin-off.

      • CirnoTheStrongest

        Mana Khemia is NOT a spin-off. It’s a part of the series just as much as Atelier Arland or Atelier Ellie

      • admeister

        That aside, I’d love to see a Mana Khemia 3! Gust are playing it safe lately, though, and are sticking with the main Atelier series.

  • ivanchu77

    “Makai Wars Live” !?

    At first It seems clear that Asagi is finally getting her own game, the event name is a big hint and fans crearly want that to happen, but NIS loves to troll when it comes to asagi so…. i dunno

  • Honestly I hope its not makai wars otherwise we may not get asagi being the bud of jokes trying to steal others spotlight anymore, like dressing up as a prinny. I wonder which games they will be

  • Zonic505

    Prinny 3!!

  • darkbartz

    La Pucelle 2 and ZHP2. Asagi gets to MC the event. Oh I kid, but I do want La Pucelle 2 and not to be gypped out of it like La Pucelle PSP…

    • pimpalicious

      I wouldn’t be as upset about LP PSP if the US didn’t get a gimped version of the original. Anyway though, La Pucelle 2 would be awesome.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    You’ve waited Asagi…but its finally happening.

  • Serpenter Rex

    Asagi getting her own game? NIS is trolling you guys good.

  • For Asagi, it is a dream finally fulfilled… After the long, heart wrenching humiliation of being denied the main character spot for how many NIS games.

  • GibbRS

    I’d guess Disgaea 2 D2 or Disgaea 3 D2, since they’ve already said they’re open to making “D2” versions of other Disgaea games.
    It would also be cool if they made a good cross over game that had characters from tons of different series (and they were all main characters instead of just DLC add-ons) like Project X Zone. It would be cool for Flonne and Totori to be fighting side by side. ^__^

  • DesmaX

    I’m thinking Asagi game (I don’t see a reason why make an Asagi live-show… But it could be NIS fooling everyone), and something Soul Nomad related, because it’s about time to that game to get some love

  • komiko12

    I’m really skeptical about the Asagi thing.

    Something about Priere, Marjoly or Gig would be good.

    • Pekola

      Oh god La Pucelle stuff would be…wow, it’d be nice.

      But it’s been years, and I’m not sure how much interest Ragnarok garnered.

  • Villainous Inc.

    My prediction – Makai Wars Live is a troll. Asagi gets sick and can’t make it. Prinnies run the show. Makai Wars the game is announced at the beginning of the show, and cancelled just before the end.

  • Not gonna get my hopes up for a game with Asagi. It would be too awesome. So hopefully two other great games will be shown.

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Has to be time for Disgaea 5 on PS4 or Disgaea 4 on PSV.

    • D4 on Vita 0.0

    • Guest

      EDIT: Woops, brainfarted here. Please ignore this post

    • Erikdayo

      Disgaea 4 on Vita would be amazing. As much as I liked D3 on the Vita, I much much much much much prefer the characters in D4. Mao is annoying.

  • SlickRoach

    Asagi finally becomes the main character! And then it was all a dream Super Mario Bros. 2 style.

    • Slayven19

      That would actually work out great :D, really hope its that!

  • Makai Wars is a given, they’ve teased the daylights out of it for almost two years now; since when does an anniversary last TWO years anyway? There’s also that Asagi Diaries site that posts weekly(?) ‘entries’ by Asagi or whatever.

    We all know that even if she does get her own game, we’re just going to be replaying all the fights with her from the various NIS titles from her point of view. They won’t give her an original game in its own right; that’s already been proven.

  • Göran Isacson

    *popcorn.gif* because I cannot wait to see how they will destroy Asagis hopes this time around.

  • KiTA

    Er, wasn’t the announcment “DanganRonpa” and “Demon Gaze,” two games that were basically spammed on NISA’s “suggest localization candidates” forum?

    Edit: OH, NIS not NISA. Hm. I’d love to see them do a roguelike — something not unlike Makai Kingdoms. Like an entire game of nothing but the item world. That would be interesting…

    • ChiffonCake

      …those two were announced at Anime Expo.

    • DesmaX

      Guided Fate Paradox should be just your cup of tea.

      Dungeons normally take a good time to complete

      • KiTA

        Yes, GFP is a pseudo-sequel to ZHP which was a roguelike. Looking forward to it. :)

    • Roberto Maselli

      The upcoming Guided Fate Paradox and Zettai Hero Project for PSP are both roguelikes ;)

  • Monterossa

    Disgaea 5

  • Raika Souku

    if they say its asagi is a main chara and i do have high hopes for her but they played that trick way to many time if they say she the main they probaly gonna make a chara to take the game away from her i mean nis is now known for main chara fighting over games now in cameo

  • deadMastershiro

    Slow down my wallet can’t take any more.

  • Skode

    If Asagi gets her own game then she will lose her schtick about wanting to be a main character in her own game as she guests in practically ever other NIS series going – i personally kind like the fact shes a running joke character but thats just me.

    Anyway next gen Disgaea 5 please… goodness knows what kind of madness NIS can create in the game when they harness the power of a PS4.

    • Slayven19

      Its old anyway and ran into the ground now. She needs her own game and she’s a popular character for more than just her schtick.

  • Vitonofrio del Rosso

    soul nomad 2 or even soul nomad VITA (psp port) and makai kingdom 2 or even makai kingdom VITA (psp port)..
    do it nisa!

    • TheExile285

      Some Vita love would be nice.

  • burnfist23

    Sohei Niikawa already confirmed Disgaea 5 was in development so I wouldn’t be surprised if one of those games was Disgaea 5.

  • Otaku-Sama

    Asagi will finally have her own game. *Manly Tear*
    … I won´t complain too much if this is a lie … I am used to it. I can endure it.
    But I will just feel bad for Asagi if that happens (again) … Not that they care at this point, after all these years of trolling.
    I just hope that Mizuhashi Kaori does Asagi´s voice again. That would be great.

  • There’s no way Asagi will have her own game. If this is true i will have a headbutt match with a mountain goat

  • tubers

    Some VITA ports.

  • lozffvii

    The second game is La Pucelle Ragnarok US/EU release!

    • Jesse Thompson

      God…I hope so…

  • cloudcaelum

    Disgaea 4 Vita D2 Vita please, i hate to playing tactic RPG on home consoles.

    • British_Otaku

      A little soon for D2 on the Vita…
      I can see Disgaea 4 though… >_>
      It’s been a few years or something.

    • chibiwall

      I’m waiting for them too <3

  • Zonron

    what time today? i have been waiting all week for this info ever since i seen this article! im hoping they get disgaea 4 on vita :D

  • Zonron
  • Zonron
    Disgaea 4 confirmed for vita, thats all i realy got from this. Can i get a woot woot!?

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Back from the dead I see. Re-welcome.

  • Asuna Ilano

    I’d give up my soul and turn into a prinny just to see Asagi get her own game.
