Rejoice all ye faithful, for the time of Electronic Entertainment Expo is nearly upon us. E3 is built on bringing out the big guns to try to one-up the competition, and while small, NIS America hopes to surprise you with what they have up their sleeve.
While already promising to bring attendees hands on time with several games, including Disgaea 1 Complete, Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk, SNK 40th Anniversary Collection, and the Switch version of Ys VIII, they also tease new announcements to come that they hope you’ll get hyped by.
While NIS is of course a smaller company with a set focus on more niche Japanese titles, there is some high profile stuff they might surprise us with, including more information about SNK Heroines, or perhaps as of yet unannounced ports or continuations of series such as Danganronpa, RPG Maker or PSYCHO-PASS. Stick to Gamingbolt as we report on all the best reveals from E3 2018.
