NIS Isn’t Stopping – They’ve Teased a Second New PS4 Game


While there are really zero details as to what this game may be as of yet, Disgaea 5 developer Nippon Ichi Software has said that the new Disgaea isn’t the only game they will be putting out on PS4.

Sohei Shinkawa, NIS’ president, was being interviewed by 4gamer.net when he mentioned the new title. See the quote below.

“We’re already preparing [another title] for PlayStation 4,” Shinkawa said. “So, to fans of Nippon Ichi Software, if you buy a PlayStation 4 to play Disgaea 5, rest assured that we’re preparing other titles coming afterward.”

Unfortunately, it isn’t all good news. Shinkawa also said that it’s a potentially dangerous move by NIS:

“If, for example, we’re off our release schedule by even a week, that’s enough to affect our performance for this quarter,” Shinkawa said. “But when you look at it in the long term, it’s really important for a small company like ours to take that initiative of putting out PS4 games with this sort of timing that we’ve got going, so when it comes to console projects moving forward, we’re looking to transition into development for the PS4.”

In any event, no one knows what this game may be. There are hopeful rumors of Asagi, the recurring NIS character, will finally be getting her promised game. Others are hoping for La Pucelle, Phantom Brave, or even a Witch and the Hundred Knight sequel. It’s still anyone’s guess at this point.

What would the Niche Gamer Nation like to see?



I'm a pretty chill guy. Huge video game fan, but a bigger anime fan. I also love to write - obviously.

    Since when has NIS ever developed for PC? Personally, I’m more bugged by the fact that they only make Nintendo games sparingly at best, but ah well. At least this finally gives me incentive to buy a PS4, although I still see it as something I’ll hold off until there’s a price drop.

    I hope everything will work out for them.
    Even if i’m not a huge fan of their games, I think that variety is important.

    They never developed for PC that i know of, but surprisingly that doesnt stop me from wanting to play turn based strategy grindtastic rpgs in my platform of choice

    Ive played the first 2 games in the ps2 emulator and i’d love buying the sequels on steam or gog, a ps4 feels like a waste of money when i have a good pc rig

    You know past couple games I played like Battle Princess of Arcadias and Guided Fate Paradox became insufferable grinds for me after a while. I think NIS is still creating games for a NEET mindset (e.g. grinds like Disgaea while only Disgaea has the fans to sustain those grinds).

    Maybe if they branched into the $15 PSN downloadable realm it might help them manage better… maybe even use the Unity engine? I’m talking about games with the same production mindset as Legasista and Hotaru no Nikki. And then offer limited edition physical releases with artbooks for $60. I mean, the only reason I’m buying these games is because of the anime character designs and soundtracks; I rarely complete these grindfests. I bought Witch and 100 Knights on release date and always played the OST in my car, but after seeing reviews and with the distraction of other JRPGs it seems to be forever in my backburner.

    Aside from Disgeaa, the only games I’ve completed were the ones developed by other companies and only published by NIS America.
