NIS America Announces Three New PS3 Exclusive RPGs

TimeAndEternity

By the end of the year, there will be at least three more JRPGs to play on your PlayStation 3 before jumping ship to the PlayStation 4. Hey, thanks for the role-playing love, NIS America!

There’s Disgaea Dimension 2: A Brighter Darkness, the next chapter in the cult-favorite strategy RPG series paying tribute to Nippon Ichi Software’s 20th birthday and the 10th anniversary of the Disgaea series. The Guided Fate Paradox is a rogue-like spiritual successor to Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger Vs. Darkdeath Evilman. And then there’s Time and Eternity, an absolutely gorgeous (seriously, it could very well give Ni no Kuni a run for its money in a video game beauty pageant!) and first-of-its-kind hand-drawn HD animation RPG coming from Luminous Arc developer Imageepoch.

The trio of PlayStation 3 exclusives will be released both digitally and at retail in North America and Europe, Time and Eternity scheduled for a summertime launch followed by the other two games in the fall.
