NIS America Press Party 2011

NIS America will be throwing another fun filled press party this year on February 10, 2011. We definitely expect Ar Tonelico Qoga to be playable at the event. Little is known this time; however, a special guest from Japan and an "exciting new title" will be announced. As usual, we will be present to provide you with the latest information, stay tuned!

You can also check out our coverage of last year's event here.

Final Fantasy XIII Versus Gameplay 7 min Trailer

A new trailer has been released of Final Fantasy Versus XIII containing old and new clips of the game. Gameplay footage is heavily emphasized in the video and Kingdom Hearts fans will instantly recognize the free roaming combat system since Tetsuya Nomura worked on both games. Interestingly, the game environments resemble modern day Japan based on the cityscapes. As usual, the CG cutscenes are gorgeous and some of the best we've seen yet from Square Enix.

Video included inside.

Super Robot Wars J in English

English speaking mecha fans are rejoicing slowly as we have received word that a fan translation group has released a complete English patch online for the Game Boy Advance game, Super Robot Wars J (Super Robot Taisen J).

The main series are strategy role playing games (SRPGs) involving character and mecha cross overs from various anime and video games. Licensing issues have prevented the games from reaching Western shores in English apart from the Original Generation (OG) series which features original characters and mecha.

It's a shame Namco Bandai doesn't release the game stateside.

Please do not discuss or ask where the patch may be found.

Black Rock Shooter Game US Release Hinted?

NIS America announced on Tuesday that they have secured the rights to publish games by Imageepoch in the United States and Europe. Haru Akenaga, President of NIS America was quoted,

I am attracted by their philosophy of creating games. Imageepoch is already a distinguished videogame developer in Japan. Not only that, but it is my firm belief that their future titles will fascinate JRPG fans in the US and Europe in the near future.

Interestingly this collaboration announcement with NIS America came almost exactly a week after Imageepoch's press conference which apart from announcing several new titles, also revealed more information on their upcoming PSP blockbuster title, Black Rock Shooter.

Though none of this definitively proves anything, we would say an English release is likely based on NIS America's history. Stay tuned as we keep you updated with the latests news.

Imageepoch has previously worked on the Luminous Arc series and the PSP title Fate/Extra based off the Fate/stay night franchise.
