More NIS classics are on their way
[Update: Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 3 will launch on August 30 in North America and September 2 in Europe. NIS also shared a “spotlight” trailer for La Pucelle: Ragnarok.]
Another batch of classic NIS games is coming to modern consoles. Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 3 packs together Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure and, for the first time in the west, La Pucelle: Ragnarok.
The news was revealed during today’s New Game+ Expo as the “one more thing” of the showcase. The two games will come packed together in a single collection on August 30, for both Nintendo Switch and PC. You can check out some gameplay of the Prinny Presents below:
This is the third Prinny Presents that NIS America has put together from its back catalog of classics. The first contained Phantom Brave and Soul Nomad, while the second is due out this May and has Makai Kingdom: Reclaimed and Rebound and ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman.
Since these Prinny collections dive into the history of NIS, it’s a fitting selection to have both the roots of Disgaea in Rhapsody and the never-made-it-over entry of La Pucelle: Ragnarok. For those who want to maintain a playable archive of NIS games, it seems like a pretty solid two-pack.
The games will feature some sharper graphics and image optimization for Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure, and Ragnarok will have extra content, a new voice cast, and quick travel. Plus, for the collectors, the physical version will have a soundtrack and art book at retail.
Even as NIS America keeps rolling out new games like the most recent Disgaea entry, these Prinny Presents are a fun way of commemorating the long history of strategy and RPG from the studio. No firm date has been set yet for the Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 3 pack.
