Disgaea D2, Time and Eternity, The Guided Fate Paradox on PS3 This Year

Ryan Phillips's Avatar + Posted by Ryan Phillips on Mar 05, 2013 // Marketing Coordinator, NIS America

Greetings, doods! I hope you have all been doing well! I wanted to drop in to talk real quick about all the awesome new titles that were just announced at our annual press event! We have three brand-new PlayStation 3 exclusive titles lined up for release later this year for North America and Europe, so let’s jump right in!

Time and Eternity on PS3

Time and Eternity on PS3

I want to kick things off with our big announcement from this year’s press event! Coming this summer, NIS America will be publishing Time and Eternity in North America and Europe! Time and Eternity was developed by IMAGEEPOCH Inc. and licensed by NAMCO BANDAI Games, and is a very exciting title for us, as it is a brand-new style of RPG using hand-drawn animation! Time and Eternity places you in a serene kingdom where everyone is ready to celebrate the imminent marriage of their princess to a valiant knight. However, when a group of assassins appears during the ceremony, the glorious day is brought to a screeching halt as the knight is mortally wounded in the ambush. As a last resort, the princess reveals her long-hidden secret—there is a second soul living within her, and together, they have the power to travel through time. But can they act quickly enough to reverse the course of history and find out why their wedding ceremony was crashed? All shall be revealed this summer, dood! This title will feature dual audio voicing and DLC, as well!

Disgaea D2 on PS3

Disgaea fans rejoice! Nippon Ichi Software Inc.’s Disgaea Dimension 2: A Brighter Darkness will be illuminating your lives this fall! This title is a direct sequel to the original Disgaea, starring the fan favorite characters Laharl, Etna, and Flonne! Story-wise, Laharl is back and has settled into his duties as a full-fledged Overlord. However, he isn’t getting the respect that he wants from the locals, so he sets off on a journey to get the respect he feels he is owed! Expect the same awesome Disgaea craziness, with new characters and old friends, and new demons ready to punchasize your face! Fans will definitely enjoy the new Master/Pupil system, where the player chooses the master and the pupil, as well as which skills to pass on! Benefits include new skills and higher weapon proficiencies for the pupil, while the master gets a stat boost for being a rad teacher! On top of that, character customization is back with a vengeance! It all will hit later this year for PS3 with dual audio voicing and a bunch of planned DLC!

The Guided Fate Paradox on PS3

The Guided Fate Paradox on PS3

Last but not least, we have another awesome PS3 exclusive title from Nippon Ichi Software, Inc. titled The Guided Fate Paradox! Some folks may remember that way back at the end of 2010, I came onto PS.Blog to talk about our rogue-like title Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman for PSP. The Guided Fate Paradox is actually the spiritual successor to Z.H.P. – so rogue-like RPG fans across the world should rejoice!

The story for this title in particular is quite unique – imagine you are at the mall and you are forced to enter a raffle they are running inside… and you win! Congratulations, you winner, you! Your prize? You get to become God! Now that you are God, it’s your beeswax to go through the mysterious Fate Revolution Circuit and guide the fates of those who have prayed to God for help! You won’t be alone, though—you will also have a heavenly host of cute maid-angels and hot butler-angels to help.

“But wait,” you may shout shoutingly, “Ryan, go back to the rogue-like part!” Sure thing! This title takes the seemingly masochistic genre of rogue-like RPGs and makes it more approachable and fun for RPG greenhorns! Already a rogue-like veteran? Not to fret, as you’ll appreciate not only the awesome randomly generated dungeons, but also the insane combinations of items and gear you can use! Tank treads or a Prinny car for legs? Bat wings or robotic helmets? It’s all there, along with some over-the-top Disgaea-like special attacks. Also, look forward to customizing your character, equipping your angelic companions, and delving into dungeons so deep, you might end up on Hell’s doorstep! It’s coming this fall for PS3 with dual audio voicing!

That’s all for now, doods! We’ll be back in a few weeks to get everyone excited for the launch of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory for PS3, which is set for later this month in North America and Europe! Thanks again for all your support, doods!

    That would definitely be awesome to see them on Vita, but so far it’s looking like they’ll only be on the PS3. If I hear any updates I’ll definitely be back to talk about it though!

    I’m glad to hear that you’re excited for the game! It’s a really cool and new approach for art on a RPG so we’re really hoping that everyone in North America and Europe will enjoy it!

    Have a great day!

Ryan, help me dood.
My wife is stealing the TV dood
Please ask the guys to made the games remote play compatible dood.

Doods apart, I really would love to have all those great games remote play compatible, I already own every title for PS3 and Vita (of course the English versions, I still don’t know how to read Japanese), but my wife really insists in kick me out from the TV, then I go to the vita.

Other thing that for me is wonderful is the dual audio, if you can let us have the sound in Japanese it would be great.

Best regards, and count me in to purchase all those titles, my pocket is crying right now.

    Hi Sowulo,

    I’m definitely with you on the TV being stolen, dood ^^ Hopefully in the future we’ll see more remote play games coming through the pipeline, but it’s looking like these will be PS3 only unfortunately. If I hear any news on remote play in the future you can bet I’ll be back to chat about it!

    Again thank you for your support!

    Hi Richlando,

    Thanks for posting! As for Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, we won’t be having a PSN version available at launch for the game. For mk2 we did have a PSN version come later, however at the moment we don’t have any news on a digital version for Victory.

    All the best,

I’ll be anticipating all these titles this year. Will Time and Eternity have a Limited Edition? That’s probably the best way I’ll be getting it day one. I’ll get the other two games day one, LE or not.

Also, I love you guys, but this is like the 5th game in a row that’s been delayed with Neptunia Victory. I’m hoping you will break the streak this year starting with these titles, and start a new streak where every game actually comes out on the intended release date ;)

@42,43 its the price that you have to pay for being an early adopter.also, sony doesnt realize that whats “killing” the vita is the fact that the memory cards are propietary and overpriced as well.also, this system as awesome as it is…its competing against a handheld that is 50-75 dollars cheaper and with a growing library of games.as a matter of fact, i’m currently playing etrian odyssey 4

its all on sony if they want this to succeed or not!
