NIS America have announced Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 2; featuring ZHP: Unlosing Ranger and Makai Kingdom.
Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 2 launches Spring 2022 for Windows PC (via Steam), and Nintendo Switch.
As previously teased and in the first volume; the game provides two classic Nippon Ichi Software games in one. These include ZHP: Unlosing Ranger VS Darkdeath Evilman, and Makai Kingdom: Reclaimed & Rebound.
ZHP originally launched in 2010 for the PlayStation Portable; tasking players with powering up the hero to save the Super Baby. Customize your body to change your stats, abilities, and appearance, then venture into dungeons. You keep entering at level 1, but add all your gained levels to your total level.
Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome launched in 2005; and part of the Disgaea series. Overlord Zetta sought out the Sacred Tome to prevent the prophesied destruction of his Netherworld using its reality-manipulating powers
As the book states his own stupidity will cause the destruction of his Netherworld, he burns it in frustration- beginning his world’s destruction. He counters this by confining his soul within the book, and seeking out other overlords to bring his world back into existence through their wishes written in the pages.
Similar to the Disgaea games, please move their units around a map and fell foes (in free movement rather than a grid). However, their goal is to gain the necessary points to win, via capturing buildings and interacting with other items on the map.
This version will also feature the Petta side story, Zetta’s daughter, introduced in the PlayStation Portable remake. Other new playable characters are also promised.
You can find the announcement trailer below.
