I almost don't want to be writing this review. That's because Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is quite a lot like its predecessor, Trigger Happy Havoc. That means it's one of the few games where "spoilers" really matter, and t...
It looks like Natural Doctrine is really attempting to introduce strategy players to the cruelty of natural selection, if the latest trailer for NIS America's new PS4, PS3, and Vita game is to be believed.  Though ...
Anime Expo 2014 is among us, and NIS America has revealed three new titles that they're planning to localize in the west. If you happen to be a Vita owner, then you'll enjoy the first game on the list, since htoL#NiQ: The Fir...
Some of you may have been following the NIS-developed Battle Princess Arcadia, a side scrolling action RPG for the PS3. We've been treated to a few screenshots and videos, but NISA just dropped the release date for the locali...
Originally released in 2012, Nyaruko: Crawling With Love is a bizarre little romantic comedy which takes a typical harem anime set up and inserts tons of references to Lovecraft into the mix. The end result is a weird series ...
There's something comforting and satisfying about Japanese turn-based RPGs, growing your party and exploring the unknown in the name of loot and power. Every progressive inch forward is one step closer to realizing your ultim...
Hoeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! While pinching myself, I'm here to share with you the great news that NISA has licensed Cardcaptor Sakura the TV series for home video release. The series was originally licensed by Geneon and sat in ...
Before I was a professional writer, my primary source of income was working in the customer service industry. Every single day I would deal with customers face to face and while most of them were perfectly fine, there were so...
Last year NIS America surprised damn near everyone when they revealed that they had licensed the series Love Live for home video release. Now, a little more than a year later, they sent out a press release which falls in the ...
Diablo 3 was disappointing. That might be an odd way to start a review on a game from Nippon Ichi Software, but while I and many others await the Reaper of Souls expansion to complete the many Diablo 3 renovations, the u...
A few months ago, NIS America revealed at a convention panel that they were looking in the possibility of dubbing some of their anime releases. Since that time fans have been speculating on which title would be the first from...

If today's release of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc in North America isn't enough to get you excited, then what about the news that the sequel may be following it? Kyle Hebert, a voice actor who has previously worked on an...
I'll be honest with you. Before playing Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc for the first time, I had to dust off my PS Vita, charge it up for a few hours and install a stack of updates. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time ...
Yep, the best title. Here it is: "ハーレム天国だと思ったら、ヤンデレ地獄だった". Didn't ...
NISA deploys its anime licensing tentacles once again and snatches 2010 TV anime adaptation of similarly named light novel, The Crawling Chaos: Nyaruko-san. Now titled Nyaruko-san: Crawling with Love, the NISA title will come...
I haven't been paying too much attention to coverage about The Witch and the Hundred Knight, but these new screens and video have put it on my radar. It looks like a cutesy Diablo or Torchlight. My fondness for those games c...
NIS America has just netted (oh ho!) this season's anime Nagi no Asukara, to be released under the title Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea. Now, the show lovingly referred to on Jtor AM as Snorks and That Show With No Underwat...
For a second, I almost forgot that The Witch and the Hundred Knight was a thing. If anything, I should be ashamed of myself, since the title features Takehito Harada's artwork (character designer for the Disgae...
Having played the original Dangan Ronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc a total of two times, I can't wait to see how folks new to the series will react when NIS America releases its localization out west next year. It's a glorious lit...
This news may only interest some of you, but as someone who lived through the anime dub/sub debate before dual audio DVDs made the issue moot, I wish more games have the option of both Japanese and English dubs available to p...
If you've been craving more Hyperdimension Neptunia, NIS America have announced the North American and European release dates for their PlayStation 3 JRPG, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. This latest installment of the serie...
NISA has a date for Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc: February 11th for North America, and February 14th for Europe. There's also a delicious physical copy cover art out now, after the jump. Trigger Happy Havoc will also be a...
Gamers in the United States will be able to play the latest installment in the long-running Ys series before the holidays, with Ys: Memories of Celceta set to drop on November 26th. However, Europeans needn't feel too left ou...
The Disgaea games are great fun, but it's becoming an increasing problem to find some good time to sit down by the TV and play some console games. In fact, it's the commute to work where I get most of my gaming fixes, so the...
The school idol teenage drama anime Love Live, while licensed by NISA a while back, is now on Hulu. NISA is really on a roll with uploading things to Hulu, and this latest show features the story about an idol group, &mu...
Spike Chunsoft's Dangan Ronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is a fantastic game. A combination of Ace Attorney-like trials and investigation, and 999/VLR-like atmosphere and plot progression, Dangan Ronpa is rich with personality. I p...
