NIS America announced on Monday that it will release its The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince (Usotsuki Hime to Mōmoku Ōji) game for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on February 12, 2019. The company began streaming a new trailer to accompany the announcement.
NISA describes the game:
Alone in the forest, a wolf sings her song. Mesmerized by this beautiful voice, a little prince from a nearby kingdom wanders into the dark forest every night to find its source. However, the little prince startles the wolf during one of his visits, and she swipes her long claws in fear and blinds him.
Now, the blind prince must trek through the dangerous forest to find a cure and restore his sight. The wolf, transformed into a beautiful princess, shall be his guide. With her ability to transform at will, she will protect the little prince at all cost. But can a blind prince survive in an all-seeing forest?
NISA is also offering a limited "Storybook Edition" that comes with the game, book, soundtrack, and collector's box.
Nippon Ichi Software released the game in Japan on the PS4, Switch, and PlayStation Vita on May 31.
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.
