The beloved Japanese game developer and publisher NIS has officially announced four new titles in today’s NIS America showcase, including corresponding trailers for each.
The titles include GrimGrimoire OnceMore, Monster Menu: The Scavenger’s Cookbook, Process of Elimination, and void* tRrLM2(); //Void Terrarium 2. All four games are expected to release sometime in 2023, with no confirmed launch dates.
Process of Elimination’s trailer showed a lot of style, but absolutely zero gameplay, frustrating curious fans who were interested in what kind of game it would actually be. That is rarely enough, but you can watch the full teaser on PlayStation’s YouTube channel:
The trailer description reveals that players will assume the role of a student who falls in with some detectives, who have a serial killer hidden among them. The fans immediately drew comparisons to Danganronpa, and the genre appears to be visual novel.
Monster Menu: The Scavenger’s Cookbook, meanwhile, has a full trailer that’s very clear about what to expect. Everything you need to know is in the name, blending together a variety of genres like SRPGs in an interesting way. It seems pretty creative, but also dangerously messy. It also feels like more of a mobile game, despite the console release.
Void Terrarium was a pretty unique little roguelite, where players are a forgotten maintenance robot that must protect a little girl, who’s also the last living human. The storytelling and artwork were very innovative, so hopefully the sequel will bring fresh mechanics without losing that spark. It’s expected to release in Spring of 2023.
Last up is another title set for Spring 2023, GrimGrimoire OnceMore. The original game was a massive strategy and adventure hit from 2007, so this remaster has high expectations. It’s already been released in Japan, so it’ll be great for the West to finally experience this classic with some modern features that would be sorely needed to enjoy today. This includes quality of life improvements like adjusting the difficulty.
