Europe has been getting games from Nippon Ichi, mostly due to a strong relationship with Koei. They published the sudden influx of Gust RPGs, Grim Grimoire and soon Soul Nomad and the World Eaters. Unfortunately for the creators of Dynasty Warriors they’re going to lose a business opportunity. Nippon Ichi is opening NIS Europe.
NIS Europe will be responsible for publishing titles, probably games localized by NIS America. No specific games have been announced at this time, but Nippon Ichi has plenty of games in the pipeline like Disgaea DS. This news will probably affect North America too in the future. With another direct revenue stream it isn’t hard to imagine more localized games in the future.
