Nippon Ichi Software recently held a Japan-focused livestream to announce a trio of 2018 releases, as hosted by company president Sohei Niikawa. On the docket for the year are the new titles Liar Princess and the Blind Prince and Project Nightmare alongside a remake of the original Disgaea.
Liar Princess and the Blind Prince was the inspiration of a web designer within Nippon Ichi Software who won an annual game pitch contest. Her stenciled ink drawings helped define the game’s look. It tells the love story between a monster who becomes a princess and a blinded prince.
Under the auspices of a code name, Project Nightmare is classified as horror adventure with live-action FMV sequences. Only the briefest of teasers was shown.
Finally, Mr. Sohei Niikawa teased a Disgaea remake project in celebration of the series’ 15th anniversary. The original Disgaea launched on PlayStation 2 in 2003. Little else about the remake is known.
None of the three games have announced platforms or release windows for now. No word on global releases was given either, but given the pedigree of Disgaea, that game has a sure shot of a western release. Stay tuned for all things Nippon Ichi Software.
