Nippon Ichi Porting Phantom Brave To Wii, Adds Plenair?


image Ever since Nippon Ichi officially announced they were working with the Wii I wondered what game they would port first. Would they do Disgaea? Nah, it’s been done way too many times. I thought an upgraded version of Disgaea 2 was in the cards since Disgaea DS just came out, but Nippon Ichi’s first Wii game will be a port of Phantom Brave (thanks for the tip Pesmerga00!!).


The official site is bare, but we already know a decent amount about Phantom Brave. When I played Phantom Brave about four years ago I liked how it bucked strategy RPG trends. Phantom Brave introduced a free run system which limits movement with dm points and Marona, the main character, tethers phantoms to background objects like rocks. A scan shows Nippon Ichi is adding a mysterious cameo character for the Wii version. And it sort of looks like.. Plenair?

Just a thought. Japan gets Phantom Brave Wii on March 12 for a whopping 7,140 yen ($78). Yikes! Nippon Ichi sold Disgaea 3, a brand new PS3 game, for the same sum when it came out in Japan this past January. We haven’t heard of NIS America is picking this up, but seriously I would be surprised if they didn’t. Phantom Brave was NIS America’s first published game in North America so it holds a special place in their heart. That and a Phantom Brave localization is complete except for the new content. Check out some screenshots from the Wii version below.
