Prinny Platformer Really Is Tough As Nails

By Spencer . December 3, 2008 . 9:48am

NIS America wasn’t kidding when they said Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? is hard. Their first platformer has insidious level design akin to an NES Mega Man game. Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? doesn’t have deadly spikes, but it has plenty of pits Prinny needs to leap over. Miss a jump […]

By Spencer . November 24, 2008 . 8:21pm

Prinny’s basic sword flurry hits enemies in front and in back since the sword attack has frames where Prinny winds up. However, the backslash can only […]

Hey Doods, NIS America Will Publish The Prinny Action Game

By Spencer . September 23, 2008 . 1:25pm

(Prinny: Is it OK if I’m the Protagonist?) is a 2D action game (!) with very familiar sprites. You can […]
