When The Guided Fate Paradox comes to North America on November 5, the world as we know it will surely end unless we can get hold of the Doctor! Or... perhaps the Nippon Ichi PS3 RPG is one of those not-so-universe-ending paradoxes we've heard so much about. Sci-fi tomfoolery is apt for The Gu...

Most North American players haven't even seen one mission of Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten yet, as it's set to come out in the States this September. But the game came out in Japan last February, and now Nippon Ichi has announced two different downloadable scenarios coming this August and Octo...

If you're a fan of Nippon Ichi's twisted strategy RPG series, Disgaea, you've likely spent a ludicrous number of hours staring at illustrator Takehido Harada's charming 2D character art. You'll get to do so again with Disgaea 4, with the benefit of higher-resolution artwork. By the looks of things ...

Niche Japanese publisher Nippon Ichi hasn't had a very good year. With an expected loss of 299 million yen ($3.33 million) for the fiscal year, it's clear NIS must make drastic changes to turn things around. According to a report by Andriasang, the company blames its poor performance for relying t...

[Prinny Blog] Disgaea developer and publisher Nippon Ichi didn't have the best 2009, dood. Last week, the company announced its earnings for the first nine months of its fiscal year (ending December 31, 2009), recording operating profits 97.5% lower than those of 2008. This week, reacting to the...

You can imagine our surprise when we discovered Nippon Ichi's Last Rebellion had gotten itself a release date -- it's been nearly nine months since we last heard anything on the title (and that was its announcement!). The game's set to hit PlayStation 3 consoles on March 12 in Europe and 'February'...

Are you ready to lose another set of 1000 lives? If so, then Nippon Ichi has a new Prinny game for you. Unfortunately, Nippon Ichi has decided against releasing any information on the game, even obscuring its lengthy title. After playing the first game, can we suggest Prinny 2: This is Going to be...

Nippon Ichi continues to crank out announcements for its new upcoming games -- though calling this one a "game" might be a bit of a stretch. Though Disgaea Infinite shares a name, setting and characters with the core Disgaea series, it's far from a strategy-RPG title. In fact, this installment is a...

It's not surprising, but it certainly is welcome news. NIS America is planning on bringing Atelier Rorona to English-speaking audiences. NIS' Allison Walter confirmed to the EU PlayStation.Blog that the company is "working on Atelier Rorona right now" and that "it should be coming out in English an...

We're still having a hard time wrapping our heads around this: a 3D RPG from Nippon Ichi? Trinity Universe doesn't have the graphic quality we've come to expect from PS3 exclusives, but it's certainly a far cry from Cross Edge. Those hungry for an old-school, turn-based JRPG will find themselves sa...

Nippon Ichi is working on yet another crossover RPG for the PS3 -- but this time around, it actually looks like a current-generation game. Yay! Welcome to the third dimension, NIS. Trinity Universe combines the Atelier and Disgaea universes in an action RPG that's supposedly heavily inspired by Xe...

A brand new "Hero Transformation Project" is coming to PSP. What does that mean? We're not exactly sure either, but a snapshot of this PSP game teaser (via PSP Hyper) shows our spiky-haired friend turning into all sorts of things, ranging from tanks to Prinnies. It looks like Nippon Ichi, creator ...
