NIS America To Announce PS3 RPG
RPG fans always wait patiently for news, as they know the start of a new generation typically sees a great lack of titles that fall into their favorite genre. So it's a good thing we've been able to find new info that's gonna cater to that patient group!
According to RPGamer, NIS America has a big event scheduled for May 7 in San Francisco; it's called - wait for it - the "Holy Drunken Shenanigans, Badman!" event, and NIS will have some announcements prepared. It has been suggested that we'll see the likes of Phantom Brave: We Meet Again and Mana Khemia 2, both of which are very possible, but we're more intrigued by the "unannounced PlayStation 3 RPG." We'll hear all about it next month at this NIS event and we absolutely can't wait to nab the juicy details; hardcore RPG fans have often turned to NIS for some of the best when it comes to depth, storyline, and traditional role-playing gameplay. It'll be very interesting to see what NIS has on tap for PS3 owners, who have enjoyed a recent influx of RPG and strategy titles in the past 6-8 months or so. With Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII a long ways off, and considering that many PS3 owners aren't all that enamored with Square-Enix right now, NIS America should be able to snap up a few disgruntled former S-E followers.
Anyway, we'll fill you in on this new RPG when NIS lifts the veil in a few weeks time. Some of you who are familiar with NIS America's work in the past may have a few ideas concerning the possible title of this game...
