NISA Has Three New JRPGs For Your PS3

on March 30, 2012 7:45 PM

Starting in August, NIS America will bombard your PS3 with all sorts of colorful animated JRPGs. It all begins with Legasista, a PSN title where you crawl through dungeons, acquire and upgrade increasingly powerful equipment and the like. That’s due in August (no specific date was mentioned, but at least there’s a solid month, right?)

The release window gets murkier for Mugen Souls, a more standard RPG wherein you can turn enemies into items through this thing called Moe-Kill. All I can think about is the bartender from The Simpsons. Finally, sometime in 2013 NISA will release The Witch and the Hundred Knights, where, as the Forest Witch, you command knights to do battle with the horrible Swamp Witch. At least we assume she’s horrible. After all, she’s the antagonist.

Well, those of you decrying the dearth of JRPGs in the States seem to be getting a bit this year, eh? First Xenoblade Chronicles, then The Last Story and now these. There are still plenty of gems out there waiting to be localized but at least this is a start, right?
