NIS America have three new announcements for this year’s Anime Expo for fans of Japanese games especially for fans of sprite RPGs. All announcements are for North America and Europe. Personallly I am really looking forward to these games, and hopefully there is something for you in here as well.

First of all, we are getting the Experience-developed dungeon RPG Demon Gaze II for PS4 and PS Vita in Autumn 2017. Both versions will be released physically and digitally in all regions. NISA details the game:

Magnastar has spellbound the people of Asteria into obeying him. As the Revolutionist Party attempts to overthrow him, it is up to you, the Demon Gazer, to wield the power of demons, liberate Asteria’s citizens, and shine the light of revolution!
Demon Synergy – As the Demon Gazer, turn foes to allies and power them up using the Trance Demon Mode, or fuse with them using the Demon’s Cross!
Dungeon Crawling Made for Everyone – Whether you are a newcomer or a hardened DRPG veteran, utilize modes like Autopilot to customize your adventure!
Love On The Battlefield – Power up your demons and develop relationships with your closest companions, even leading to dating events

And here is the opening movie:

You can preorder a limited edition from the NIS America US store here (PS4/PS Vita).

Additionally, they will be localising The Princess is Money Hungry for both the PS Vita and the Nintendo Switch under the name Penny Punching Princess. The Switch version will get a physical release, while the PS Vita version will be digital only. It will release in North America on 20th March 2018 and in Europe on 23rd March 2018. Here is some more information:

In a world ruled by capitalism, cash is king! Use the money you gather to bribe enemies to fight for you, activate deadly traps with your dough, and when all else fails, smash all that stand against you with your fists! Fight your way from nothing and amass treasures to take on the mighty Dragoloan family and reclaim your kingdom!
Key features:
Cash Rules Everything Around Me – Fight smarter, not harder! Bribe your enemies to fight for you, or activate deadly traps to turn the tide of battle in this fast-paced brawler.
Who Says You Can’t Buy Popularity – Recruit/Buy flunkies to your cause to unlock stronger equipment and master over 70 special moves based on weapons you craft!
A Madcap Romp of Dollars & Dragons – Embark on a wildly funny adventure as Princess, a girl robbed of her royal heritage in a world obsessed with money.

Here is an announcement trailer:

You can preorder a limited edition for the Nintendo Switch version here.

Furthermore, NISA have reconfirmed they are localising The Longest 5 Minutes for PS Vita, Steam and now the Nintendo Switch as well. Like Penny Punching Princess, the Switch version will be physical while PS Vita will be digital only. The release window is Early 2018.

Originally developed by Nippon Ichi Software and SYUPRO-DX and out for the PS Vita in Japan, The Longest Five Minutes will take you inside the mind of a hero during his final encounter with an epic and evil Overlord. As the story unfolds, the conversations you have with your party and the Overlord will unlock memories of the hero’s journey. Each memory plays out in classic 8-bit RPG style, and the outcome of those memories will lead to the strengthening or weakening of your party in their final battle.

About the Story:

Our hero faces the origin of all evil, the Demon King 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 Demon King in the first place, are all gone. Our hero feels as though he’s letting his allies down…
In the midst of battle, his allies’ words and the Demon King’s taunts trigger flashbacks, bringing his memories back piece by piece. Our hero tries to regain his priceless memories before it’s too late, but the Demon King stands before him, his power unyielding!
What will happen in The Longest Five Minutes!?

Here is an overview trailer:

You can preorder a limited edition for the Nintendo Switch version here.

Furthermore, an introductory trailer was released for Yomawari: Midnight Shadows which has been confirmed to release in North America on 24th October in North America and 27th October in Europe for PS4 and PS Vita. You can watch that below.

You can also preorder a limited edition here (PS4/PS Vita).

    Very happy about Demon Gaze 2. I really liked the first game and I’m looking forward to the sequel.
