NIS America Bringing Three RPGs Exclusively to PS3


More JRPG goodness for you fans of the genre out there! NIS America (mostly known for hit series such as Disgaea and Phantom Brave) are going to be bringing over three new RPGs for the PlayStation 3. These are all exclusive to the system and should be releasing throughout the rest of 2012 and early 2013.

Legasista is a 2-D dungeon crawler, or "survival action-RPG" as described by NIS, will be making its appearance on the PlayStation Network in August 2012. It will feature randomly generated rooms and allow you to customize your weapons, skills, and even customize your own character by means of importing your own artwork or picture.

Mugen Souls will be securing a physical release on the PS3 sometime this fall of 2012. Jack Niida of NIS claims that if you're a fan of SRPGs like the company's Disgaea, Makai Kingdom, and Phantom Brave, you'll definitely want to pick up and play Mugen Souls. The game will feature a turn-based battle system with free movement (not a grid-system).

And last, but not least, The Witch and the Hundred Knights takes a step away from what NIS usually does with 2D art styles and RPG gameplay. It's set in a full 3D environment and has real-time action RPG gameplay. As the name implies, you'll be commanding 100 knights in battle.

Are you interested in any of these particular NIS RPGs?

I've always been a pretty big fan of JRPG's, especially ones by NIS and Atlus, so this is good news for me! Thanks for sharing this, I might just have to check out Legasista especially, that sounds like my type of game. Since they're for a system I like quite a bit, the PS3, that makes it just a lot better. :)
I'm sure barrel must be excited as he seems to love more JRPG's and I know he mentioned wanting more to play :P I don't have a PS3 so I won't be getting these but this is great news for those that like JRPG's.
I'm really into the the fact that there's so much customization available in these, personally. I'm not sooper into dungeon crawlers, but the other two seem like they're worth the time. :D

Plus, I like NIS. What can I say?

That's a false and true generalization!(?), Actually, I'll be honest and say even though I've been hearing about these games for a while I haven't expressed too much interest in them...and still don't. I'm only vaguely interested in Legasista and The Witch and the Hundred Knights (I've played enough Idea Factory games to know not to get excited about Mugen Souls, but we'll see what happens), but for Legasista in particular I doubt I'll want to play that kind of game on console (probably Vita), like the Cladun games before it which that game is supposed to be spiritual successor. I've got plenty of other JRPG games I'm much more excited about this year in contrast personally (one or two courtesy of Nis bringing them over), so definitely those take priority 1st before I even look at these games personally, fortunately or unfortunately that may take a while...

It's nice to see Nis is hardworking at bringing so many niche rpgs though.
