That adorable little suicidal penguin from the esteemed Disgaea franchise is now getting his own adventure, aptly named, Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? But unlike the games where the Prinny originated, this will be no strategy/RPG. Nope, this is going to be a straight-up side-scrolling action title, and NIS has already come out and said it won't be for the faint of heart. They said Prinny is going to be the "hardest" side-scroller you'll ever play, so unless you've got the guts and the reflexes, the Prinny may not be the "hero." You get 1,000 lives to make it through the brutal levels, and if you make it, you da man. How the idea for such a game came about, we have no idea, but hey...it's amusing.
