Prinny 2: First Trailer, Panties Design Contest

Ryan Phillips's Avatar + Posted by Ryan Phillips on Oct 25, 2010 // Marketing Coordinator, NIS America

Dood! I’m here to tell you all about our brand new contest we have devised to hopefully help our favorite Demon Lord Etna to forget all about her lost panties. In order to escape her wrath and specifically from being skinned alive, we’re asking our fans to design a new pair of panties that our favorite Demon Lord herself wouldn’t mind wearing!

Three lucky contestants will be chosen by a panel of us here at NIS America and will win a free copy of Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! for PSP. On top of that, the best design will be made into actual panties and will be sent to the top three contestants and also to 50 randomly picked participants! Get creative and help out the Prinnies by making a most-excellent pair of panties for Etna, dood! Check out all of the details here at the Official Contest Page!

Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! for PSP

On top of that we have prepared the first trailer for Prinny 2 and wanted to share it with all of you!

Those who played the last Prinny adventure — Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? — probably already know this, but this game is designed to be challenging. On my first playthrough, I managed to put a serious dent in my 1000 prinny lives before completing it. However, there’s a new addition that I think a lot of players will like, which is called “Baby” mode. The previous version only had “Standard” and “Hell’s Finest” and even on Standard, a lot of players still found some parts and bosses to be on par with side-scrollers from the 80’s in terms of difficulty. “Baby” mode can be activated within the game when necessary to help with game progress and can stop some grey hairs from sprouting. In my case it helped prevent choice words and hand signals from being expressed in the testing room.

I’d like to also take a quick moment to talk to all of you about some of the new Prinny abilities that are mentioned in the trailer. On top of the basic abilities that were included in the original Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero, there are some really unique features for Prinny 2. One of the most notable abilities available is the new “Break Mode.” The way it works is you first have to eat enough sweets or attack to build your Break Gauge. After a certain point, you can enter “Break Mode” and it will allow you to do 3 separate abilities that can really give you an edge in battle or boss encounters. On top of the special abilities, you will experience a slight damage increase also when using your standard jump slash or normal slash attacks. Break mode now gives you an even bigger reason to get ready for a serious button mashing session, as using it can have a direct correlation to your success against a boss or in certain parts of each level.

The first Break Mode ability is called the “Husky Hip Pound.” Much like the hip pound in the last Prinny game, this ability not only has the ability to stun, it has the ability to damage too! The second new ability is called the Prinny Cyclone. Using the Prinny spin technique while in Break Mode will allow you to do a powerful spin technique that will unleash damage to all nearby enemies that you spin over. Lastly, there is the “Prinnikaze” ability. After building your gauge to Break Mode, you can activate an extremely powerful diving sword attack that will deal extra damage to both enemy and boss alike, dood!

On a funny side note, another comical ability appears in Prinny 2 in an item called a Netheryam. Once get one, you instantly start to fart and it lifts you into the air until it runs out. It can be used to get to areas that would otherwise be unreachable, to navigate a certain area of the map, or to soar over your enemies shamelessly with the power of self-reliance using your own gas.

That’s it for this installment from here at NIS America, stay tuned for updated screenshots, character pics, and more trailers on our Official Prinny 2 Website. Laters, dood!

One of the reasons I haven’t gotten the first game yet is because I read somewhere the controls are too sluggish. I read that when you jump horizontally you cannot change the direction afterwards. Is this true? Is this the case on Prinny 2? It’s unfortunate since even in NES games there are plenty of games where you can change direction in the air.

Other than that, the game looks very fun and I would like to play it.

    Hey AriesWarlock,

    I honestly didn’t find the controls to be sluggish when I did my playthrough. When you jump horizontally, it is true that you cannot change direction on the first jump, however, you do get a second jump as Prinny 2 has the double-jump feature. It is on the 2nd jump that you can change direction which greatly helps. I don’t think the average gamer will have a problem picking it up.

    On my playthrough I really didn’t feel that not being able to alter my direction on the first jump hindered my experience. Granted a lot of side-scrollers that allowed a little bit of tweaking mid-air made for good gameplay on NES, however a lot of the 80′s Castlevania games had the same jumping system as Prinny 2 and they still were a blast in my opinion. Double jump will be your friend as it really ties in to a lot of the boss fights!!!

    Hope this helps!

    + Ryan Phillips on October 25th, 2010 at 1:23 pm said:

    Hey eatthemall!

    I agree that it is a mode, however it’s a little bit more than just a “mode” by itself. The story itself is exclusive to Asagi, along with the bosses. You’ll also find a completely different set of weapons and abilities between Asagi Wars and the normal Prinny 2 game.

    The part I personally liked was that the weapons you can use really changed the way you go through the level in comparison with the normal Prinny 2 mode. I didn’t feel that it was the exact same mechanics as the normal mode and it made for a pretty fun experience.

    Hope this helps!

This is why NIS is awesome! I am so tired of companies worrying about offending someone or always playing the conservative PR role. The PR staff from most publishers act like mindless drones with the same old sales pitches.

Thanks you NIS for breaking the mold once again. Maybe there is hope for the gaming industry after all.

Thanks for the reply. If there is a second jump then that should make things better. I think I will try this now. Please, do pass along to the developers to always keep in mind tweaks and designs to make the experience smooth for players as possibly as they can. Even better, take fan feedback. Thanks.

Hey, I really need this question answered so I can know whether to buy this or not. The first Prinny was great but I had to press the square button so fast I thought I was going to break the screen off of my PspGo. I was wondering if there will be an option to maybe just hold the square button to get off super fast attacks. Thanks.

    Hey Robbie_G_Irish!

    Unfortunately they weren’t able to give us a turbo button option to get super fast attacks going in Prinny 2. The attack button is still the same as the previous Prinny game.

    I know it can be a drag to have to mash the square button during boss fights, but the good news is that of the addition of the combo gauge and break mode. By saving your serious square button hitting for when you have your full break gauge, it will be easier on the hands/PSP unit and more effective during the levels/boss fights.

    Hope this gives you some encouragement ^^
