Today via press release NIS America announced they would be bringing The Longest Five Minutes to the West. This title will be releasing digital only for the PlayStation Vita and on Steam sometime in 2017. Here is some information about the game straight from the press release:

Our hero faces the origin of all evil, the Overlord himself, but suddenly loses all memories of his adventure.

His finishing moves, the name of his hometown, and even the reason he’s trying to defeat the Overlord in the first place, all gone. Our hero feels as though he’s letting his allies down…

In the midst of battle, his ally’s words and the Overlord’s taunting triggers flashbacks, bringing his memories back piece by piece. Our hero tries to regain his priceless memories before it’s too late, but the Overlord stands before him, his power unyielding!

What can happen in The Longest Five Minutes!?

NIS America has also released a teaser trailer:

This game’s style  reminds me of Half Minute Hero, but I have no idea what the gameplay will be like. Leave us a comment below and let us know what you think.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    Been keeping an eye on this. Seems like a unique concept. Could be fun.

    I’m getting half minute hero vibes from this. But that is a good thing
