Fresh from Anime Expo, NIS America released some solid news about a few titles they have been quiet about. First off, Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love, due out this fall on PlayStation 2 and Wii, will be released as a premium package. This special release will feature two discs, one with English voices and one with the original Japanese. Along with containing two discs, this tactical RPG will come with a special cover art, and most importantly, will retail for only $39.99.
Hot on the heels of that announcement came confirmation of a North American release for Atelier Annie: Alchemists of Sera Island. While RPGamer had revealed info prior to this announcement, it's now official. This Nintendo DS RPG will have players not only fighting in a unique tactical combat system, but building a resort while collecting items for alchemy. This hybrid game will be available in October 2009.
NIS America has also announced that a trophy patch for Disgaea 3 will be released on PSN on July 16. This patch will add more than 50 trophies, but current saved data will not be usuable with this patch, so players will have to start over to obtain them. For a list of trophies, click here.
RPGamers who pre-order Phantom Brave: We Meet Again can still obtain the Japanese Original Soundtrack: Sato Tenpei's Selection. This sampler includes ten songs as well as a tray card containing the Japanese lyrics for two of the songs in the game. This bonus is limited to the first 500 customers and is only available here.
Finally, NIS America is hiring a script editor. If you are interested in jumping into the gaming industry more details are available on the company's main employment page.
