The fine folks over at NIS America took some time out of their busy localization schedule earlier this week to show off three new Japanese RPGs, which will be available for PS3 owners in North America later this year.
The first reveal is a game many die-hard Disgaea
fans already knew about
and have been anxiously for confirmation of a western release. Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness
(a direct sequel to the first game in the series) will not only re-unite Laharl, Etna, and Flonne but it will also have the best character creation system in the series to date. The game is expected to launch in North America this fall.
Also coming this fall is The Guided Fate Paradox, another tactical-dungeon-crawling RPG from the original Disagea team. In this one, a teenage boy (Renya Kagurazaka) basically becomes a God (for whatever reason) and is thrown into the middle of a war between angels and demons. Oh and he must also fight those demons in a dimension known as the Copy Word, in order to fulfill people’s wishes in our world (the Original World).
The third game is the Namco Bandai published Time and Eternity, which is due out this summer. In this “HD animated RPG” (it’s basically an anime in which you play) a lucky man is about to marry a beautiful princess…and then he gets murdered. But don’t worry. In a Bill Murryesque turn, his wife-to-be (who is actually two different women sharing the same host body…don’t ask. It’s easier that way) will travel through time to do battle with his murderer, in order to prevent the crime from happening.
Even with the PS4 on the horizon it’s great to see the PS3 still has plenty of games on the horizon. All three of these RPGs look interesting in their own right but Time and Eternity especially, as it’s hand drawn anime esthetic could make it one of year’s more visually appealing
titles, at least for fans of anime.
What do you think RPG fans? Have any of these three titles piqued your curiousity?
