On top of Disgaea 3 Return, a PlayStation Vita port, Nippon Ichi has four more games in the pipeline. A feature in Dengeki PlayStation has a few hints.
One title is an action RPG with 3D graphics and full polygons. This title is being made by the Prinny: Can I Really be the Hero? group. We’ll hear more about this title in a month. The Disgaea team is also working on a new title using their know how with internet connectivity and experience from Disgaea 4. A famous illustrator is working with them as a character designer. System Prisma, makers of the ClaDun games, is also working on a new title. Dengeki PlayStation did not specify platforms for these titles.
The fourth title is a popular Nintendo 3DS game overseas will be released in Japan. Cave Story 3D, perhaps? As of now it has not been announced for Japan and NIS America is tied to it.
An interview snippet also mentions Nippon Ichi is interested in making a PlayStation Vita sequel to Criminal Girls. However, they can’t imagine doing it without [Kazuya] Niinou, so this won’t happen for some time.
I suppose this is a good time to mention we have an interview with Nippon Ichi president Souhei Niikawa coming up…
