Nippon Ichi Software announced a new title called The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince, an upcoming game with a monster that pretends to be a princess and acts as a guide for a blind prince.
Nippon Ichi Software holds a special in-house event each year, where all employees come up with a different video game idea and one of the submissions is guaranteed to become a new game. This is how titles such as games such as htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary and Yomawari: Night Alone came to be.
The idea of The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince was thought of by a female web designer employee of Nippon Ichi Software. It is characterized by its drawing book-style illustrations.
The game is a bittersweet love story about a monster that pretends to be a princess and its interactions with a prince who can’t see.
Lastly, here’s a first look at some in-development gameplay, courtesy Famitsu:
More information on The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince will be revealed on a later date. Its platform(s) and release date have yet to be announced.
