Nippon Ichi Software Developing Another Action RPG

By Spencer . October 8, 2013 . 2:10am

battleA little tidbit from Dengeki PlayStation is Nippon Ichi Software has another action RPG in the pipeline. The developer behind Disgaea and horror series Hayarigami has been steadily expanding into action RPGs with games like Blue Roses, The Witch and a Hundred Knight, and most recently Battle Princess of Arcadia.


It’s unclear if this is a follow up to The Witch and the Hundred Knight or if it’s a brand new game. NIS America will release The Witch and the Hundred Knight in the West early next year.

    Looks like NIS will be kept busy for a while. It’ll be interesting to see how they do on more ARPG’s.

  • Dark Zerato

    Disgaea action. Sold.

  • You know what would be nuts? If NIS made a Disgaea fighter and have Arcsys help out on it. It would be more broken than the Hokuto No Ken fighter. xD

    • Shady Shariest

      Gordon would win everyone :P

    • Göran Isacson

      That WOULD be pretty cool, I cannot deny. Though I wonder if they would be willing to spend money on something so far out of their comfort zone, what with their latest troubles.

      That wouldn’t be a breaktrough, making disgaea an action adventure hand drawn Sidescroller game like would be!! they wouldn’t go that far out of their comfort zone if they did that, like a dragon’s crown like game, set in the Makai Senki Universe.. Prinny 1 & 2 Style @chubunato:disqus

      Man I’ve always dreamt of that. It can really work just like how Arcsys made Persona into a fighting game.

      (slightly off-topic) Like how Blizzard made a RTS into a MMORPG.

      Please NIS and Arcsys make it happen!

    • Bentan

      been waiting for this to happen lol

  • Shady Shariest

    But NIS! I won’t have enough money!

  • My money is on something using the Witch and Hundred Knight engine but under a new/different IP.

  • gangrelion

    What do you mean “Blue Roses”? That was not an action RPG.

  • TheExile285

    Vita or PS4 would be nice

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Blue Roses and Battle Princess are both Apollosoft, not NIS. Is this new game being actually developed by them? Or just published.

  • DesmaX

    Probably another game from the Prinny team.

    Hope they’ll keep the dark tone

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    Asagi game?

    • Skeptika Crediblus

      Hells yes.

  • ZekeFreek

    C’mon. Prinny 3 in HD on Vita, starring Prinnies from Hades.
