Nippon Ichi Software announced on Thursday the Usotsuki Hime to Mōmoku Ōji (The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince) and "project Nightmare" games during a livestream to introduce titles planned for release by July. The Famitsu.com website also began streaming an in-development teaser video for Usotsuki Hime to Mōmoku Ōji.
The Usotsuki Hime to Mōmoku Ōji game will focus on a heartrending love story between a monster disguised as a princess who guides a blind prince. The livestream revealed visuals for the game.
The concept for the game originated from a female web designer for Nippon Ichi Software who submitted the idea in 2017 during for the company's annual "Nippon Ichi Kikaku-sai" event that chooses one submission to become a game. Previous titles that originated from past events are the htoL#NiQ -Hotaru no Nikki- game and the Yomawari: Night Alone game.
The livestream revealed a live-action teaser video for the untitled "project Nightmare" horror adventure game. In the video, a woman appears to wake up in an unfamiliar location, and a hooded assailant attacks her. Nippon Ichi Software president and CEO Sōhei Niikawa, who presented the livestream, clarified that the video is not a special live-action trailer for the game, and it represents actual scenes from the game.
Nippon Ichi Software also announced during the livestream that Disgaea will get an HD remake to celebrate the original Disgaea: Hour of Darkness game's 15th anniversary. The text “Disgaea Next Work” appeared in the livestream.
In addition, the livestream revealed trailers for the Shikihime Kyōdōtan (Your Four Princess Knights' Training Story) tactical role-playing game, which is slated to launch on March 8, and the The Silver 2425 release that will bundle The Silver Case and The 25th Ward: The Silver Case on March 15.
