posted on by Karen Ressler
3 games slated for fall; The Awakened Fate Ultimatum slated for March

Following its press event on Thursday, NIS America streamed trailers for its upcoming games The Awakened Fate Ultimatum, Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, and Rodea the Sky Soldier.

The Awakened Fate Ultimatum:

The Awakened Fate Ultimatum (Kamisama to Unmei Kakumei no Cross Thesis) is slated to ship for PlayStation 3 in North America on March 17 and in Europe on March 20. The game is a sequel to Nippon Ichi's The Guided Fate Paradox (Kamisama to Unmei Kakumei no Paradox ) PlayStation 3 role-playing game.

NIS America describes the story:

Several years after a certain revolution came to pass, and the powerful Satanael was defeated, the devils were still dominant in their constant war against the angels. Meanwhile, a certain Celestia was resorting to guerilla warfare to survive. They focused on researching a way to create a "God" to use as their ultimate weapon against the devils. After creating the "Fate Awakening Crystal," which can turn a human into a God, the angels could only wait for the day they found someone who was compatible with it...

One day in the Human World, a boy is attacked by a group of devils on his way home from school. He is stabbed through the heart, but as he is dying, he gets saved by a mysterious girl, and wakes up in an unknown location—Celestia. As if guided by the Fate Awakening Crystal that is implanted in his chest, he finds himself thrust into the middle of a war between angels and devils. With his newly awakened powers, he must choose how best to use them, and ultimately, which of the two new girls in his life he will be able to save...

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance:

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance (Makai Senki Disgaea 5) for PlayStation 4 is the newest installment in the Disgaea strategy RPG video game series. NIS America will release the game in digital and physical formats this fall as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

NIS America describes the story:

As a new and terrible Overlord named Void Dark seeks to enslave the countless Netherworlds, one young demon has stood to end his reign — Killia. In Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, you will lead Killia and his tenacious army of rebels in their struggle against Dark Void. Along their dark path to vengeance, you will encounter more hilarious writing, over-the-top animations, and absurd damage numbers than anyone has seen in a Disgaea game. Ever.

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls:

NIS America announced on Thursday that it will release the Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls (Zettai Zetsubō Shōjo Danganronpa: Another Episode, or Absolute Despair Girl Danganronpa: Another Episode) PlayStation Vita game this fall. The game is a spinoff of Spike Chunsoft's earlier Danganronpa games, which NIS America released on PS Vita in North America and Europe last year under the names Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair.

NIS America describes the story:

Komaru Naegi, little sister to Makoto Naegi, has been imprisoned inside a mysterious apartment for over a year. One day, she is rescued by Byakuya Togami of Future Foundation, but the rescue is derailed by a sudden attack of hundreds of Monokumas. Komaru soon discovers that the city has been taken over by a group of children calling themselves the Warriors of Hope. Their leader, Monaca, declares that the city will be the site of a Children's Paradise, and to accomplish this, all the adults will be exterminated. Komaru teams up with Toko Fukawa to try to survive the rampaging Monokumas, escape the crafty Monokuma Kids, and uncover the secrets of the city.

Voice actress Erica Mendez announced over Twitter on Friday that she will be playing the English voice of new character Nagisa Shingetsu. The first two games had the option of either the Japanese or English voice over tracks.

Rodea the Sky Soldier:

NIS America also announced on Thursday that it will release Rodea the Sky Soldier for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS this fall. Kadokawa's Zin Hasegawa is directing the game and Sonic franchise co-creator Yuji Naka is the original creator.

The game was initially announced in 2011 for the Wii and Nintendo 3DS consoles. However, no further details were announced until last November, when it was revealed that the game would be released for the Wii U instead of the Wii. In Japan, a limited edition package of the Wii U version will bundle the Wii game Tenkū no Kishi Rodea (Sky Soldier Rodea).

NIS America describes the story:

1,000 years ago, Emperor Geardo of the Naga Empire sent an army of machine soldiers to invade the sky kingdom of Garuda. Thanks to the efforts of Princess Cecilia and Rodea, a machine soldier who promised to protect Garuda, Emperor Geardo's assault was thwarted.

In present day, a spirited inventor named Ion discovers an abandoned robot that has fallen into disrepair in the heart of a scorching desert. Upon completing her repairs, the robot stirs to life and reveals itself to be none other than Rodea. Stunned to find himself in the future, Rodea learns that the Naga Empire is no more and that Garuda has known peace for 1,000 years.

But this peace was not meant to last, for the forces of Naga have returned to wage war against Garuda. Remembering the promise he made 1,000 years ago, Rodea takes to the skies to defend Garuda from the Naga Empire once again.
