Happy Holidays, dood!!! Just dropping in today to wish you all happy holidays and to give a big thanks to all of our fans and everyone that made 2010 an awesome year for us here at NIS America!

NIS America: Happy Holidays

I’m happy to bring a bunch of presents including the Hyperdimension Neptunia trailer! On top of that, we’re also proud to bring some screenshots of Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle for PSP!

Last time I chatted about the basic story of Gamindustri and how it relates to our four lovely goddesses and their journey to save Histoire and Gamindustri. Today, I’d like to turn my focus to some of the other unique features that throw some good ol’ nostalgia and customization into the game. The first one we see in the trailer is the incorporation of a lot of classic SEGA icons such as Alex Kidd, Shinobi, and Space Harrier. During the course of your journey through Gamindustri, you may come across various dungeon bosses who may drop small “Game Discs” as they’re called.

Upon acquisition, they will allow you to customize your battle combinations to add, for example, an Alex Kidd or Space Harrier special summon attack where you can deal some serious late 80’s/Early 90’s damage to your foe. It’s a really nostalgic feature that a lot of the older gamers will appreciate.

Next in the trailer, we come across the use of the “Emblem” and “R/W Discs”. These two features allow a little bit of customization for your character(s). “Emblem” will become available to you early on in the game and its basic premise is you can put your favorite picture or emblem on your character’s posterior. Next we have the “R/W Disc” that will allow you to create your own personal summon to do damage and show your favorite picture AT THE SAME TIME! All you will need to do both is get your favorite pic over to your PS3 and then upload it via the game’s image editor. Endless possibilities and humor will ensue without a doubt. Our QA team and I have flown plenty-a-roflcopter while using these features.

Lastly, two quick cameo characters are shown, one for GUST, and one for Nippon Ichi Software. These characters can join your party to open up alternate stories as each has their own motivation for wandering around Gamindustri. Word on the street is there may be DLC for them to become playable *wink*, but there will be more on DLC next month

Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle

Our last present to give you all this year will be a few quick screenshots of our new Phantom Brave PSP game!! Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle is a port of the Wii version Phantom Brave: We Meet Again – but this time there’s a bunch of new cameos included! Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks we will have a brand spankin’ new website for you all to view along with more screenshots.

Before I take off, I just wanted to let you all know our Holiday Comic Contest is in full swing with “No Joy to the Netherworld, Etna Claus has come!” This time around we are asking our fans to complete a comic starring Prinny and Demon Lord Etna for some awesome NIS prizes. Come check it out on the Holiday Contest Website!!

That Gust character looks unbearably cute…

Bunnies. :D

P.S. Please send Amazon some more copies of Trinity Universe. I’m ready for that game now. *looks at backlog* Well, not really but if its going to be rare and expensive I’m ready for another shot to get it at a normal price. :(

    Greetings, dood!

    I’m in total agreement with the GUST character, hehehe.

    As for Trinity Universe, one of the best ways of being able to get the game at normal price is to sign up for our Prinny Bomb, as we usually announce at our “What’s New Section” when we get them in stock.

    Happy Holidays!

@25 – there better be a hundred Etna ones for me to choose from. :p

As much as I love you guys , especially your consistent support of the PSP over the years, I am going to have to pass on Phantom Brave. I don’t know why you brought that over instead of La Pucelle, which is actually good.

So glad we are getting a special edition!

The prinnies wanted me to ask: What’s up with the censoring of the boxart, dood?!

Is that decided by NISA or something the ESRB decides?

The prinnies are not happy :(

Anyways, thanks for bringing this game over to the states!

    Hi Gitaroo!

    You can preorder/buy through the NIS America Online Store to get your special edition! If you sign up for our Prinny Bomb newsletter, you can be notified as soon as the item goes on preorder.

    Hope this helps!

    Hiya FearMonkey,

    We’re definitely happy you’re as excited as we are for Neptunia, dood!

    Although we haven’t officially announced the DLC lineup for Hyperdimension Neptunia just yet, hang tight for a little longer, as within the next couple of months you should be hearing some great news!

    Happy Holidays!
