No, NIS America Will Not Be Publishing La Pucelle Ragnarok


We often get queries asking if La Pucelle Ragnarok will be published in the U.S. by NIS America, and we’re usually quick to say “no,” stating everything from the state of the PSP market to NISA having too many other games to work on.


Understandably, La Pucelle fans wanted to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, so here’s a quote from NIS America, when we asked them to give us the final word on the subject:


“All right. No, we will not be able to bring it over. We’ve got a lot of fantastic new titles lined up for 2011, and we think fans will get pumped over those even though we can’t bring LP:R out of Japan. For those who’ve supported it over the years, thank you very much for your efforts, but in the end, we won’t be bringing it out of Japan.”


La Pucelle Ragnarok is the PSP port of La Pucelle: Tactics, a Nippon Ichi-developed PlayStation 2 role-playing game published in North America by Mastiff and Koei in Europe. While Ragnarok was published in 2009 in Japan by NIS, Tactics was originally published way back in 2002.
