NIS announces September Showcase with new game reveals and more

NIS, short for Japanese developer and publisher Nippon Ichi Software, has announced a new game showcase for September 7th, 2022. It’ll stream on Twitch at 8 AM pacific time, so be sure to check out NIS’ official Twitch channel here.

Fans can expect four new game announcements, updates, a livestream immediately following the showcase, “and more”. Here’s the official teaser trailer for the NIS America showcase:

The uninitiated might be a little taken aback with this new teaser trailer, which has voice actors excitedly using the word “dood” throughout. It definitely seems a little random and awkward without knowing the inside baseball.

Well, NIS is probably best known for their tactical RPG series Disgaea, which features penguin-like creatures called “Prinnies”. These creatures use “dood” all the time for their in-game dialogue, and a Prinny is basically the face of NIS.

Naturally, fans are really hoping to learn about a new Disgaea release in the US. But even as the flagship series for NIS, it took years for Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny to come out, and that title only just launched in 2021. While the critics were lukewarm about it, the fans seemed pleased enough.

The new announcement coincides with today’s US release of Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 3: La Pucelle, which finally brings La Pucelle: Ragnarok to the West, as well as Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. The new collection was announced a few months ago in a teaser trailer, which you can review here if you’re unfamiliar with the titles:

Rhapsody is a part of Marl Kingdom, which is another signature franchise of NIS. Sadly, the EU will have to wait a couple more days until Volume 3 launches on September 2nd.
