Today is the first day of Anime Expo in Los Angeles, and NIS America turned broadside on to deliver a fusillade of announcements. The first is Princess Guide.
If the name sounds unfamiliar (and it probably should), it’s the localization of Nippon Ichi Software’s Anata no Shikihime Kyouikutan, or Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story, which was released in Japan in January for PS4, PS Vita, and Switch.
In the west, the game is losing the PS Vita version (raise your hand if you didn’t expect it), and it’s coming for PS4 and Switch in 2019. It’s unfortunate for the Vita version, but I don’t think it’s too surprising that we’re not getting it in a game launching next year. We’ll have to make do with the PS4 and Switch versions.
If you want to learn more, you can read an official description and key bullet points directly from the press release.
