NIS America is known for their expansive backlog of titles, such as the Disgaea, Ys, Trails, and Fallen Legion series of games, and with such a strong lineup of titles, they have been a staple company in the gaming industry since their inception back in 2003.
This month, the gaming world was gifted with what’s coming next for the exciting publisher in the Spring & Summer 2022 seasons, with a group of titles that aims to provide entertainment for the coming weeks. Without more introductions, this is what the exciting company aims to bring the gaming world soon, globally.
NIS America Releases Coming Soon in Spring & Summer 2022
Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 2
This mashup of two beloved titles from the NIS America catalog — Makai Kingdom: Reclaimed and Rebound & ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman — finally make their way to the modern age, with the Classics Vol. 2 on Nintendo Switch only available as a bundle, or on PC where the titles can be purchased separately.

Disgaea 6 Complete will be available worldwide on June 28th, featuring all the traditional tactical RPG gameplay Disgaea fans know and love, worldwide.
Yurukill: The Calumniation Games
NIS America sharpened their game lineup with a brand-new title called Yurukill: The Calumniation Games, which is a huge genre bending title that can be described as an isometric shooter like Xevious or Twinbee, mixed with courtroom drama like Phoenix Wright or Danganronpa. With epic boss fights, and a sprawling narrative that features voice acting, this will be a new title to keep an eye out for. Yurukill releases on July 5 in North America, and can be pre-ordered also from the NIS America website.
Fallen Legion Collection
Finally, combining the two Fallen Legion titles into a neat bundle, is the collection releasing later this year by NIS America. The A-RPG series that features grid like gameplay elements, is heavily story based, and fans will want to see it through to its conclusion. It’s HUGE to finally announce not only will this exciting bundle release on PS5, but for the first time ever, Fallen Legion will find its way to the Xbox console line. With over 20 different storyline endings across the two titles, there will be plenty of value in this bundle releasing in North America on August 23rd.
Prinny Presents NIS Classic Vol. 3
This title brings players back to what possibly Kickstarted the tactical RPG genre in 2002 with La Pucelle: Ragnarok and 2009’s Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. Both arrive in this package with huge quality of life improvements such as the ability to rotate the camera, and updated sprite artwork for both titles, with a release date scheduled for August 30.
Besides these exciting titles releasing in the hotter months, when things start to cool down when Autumn comes around, NIS America still has one last title worth looking at in The Legend of Heroes: Trails From Zero, which takes place concurrently during the storyline of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, and its sequels, in the lands of Crossbell rather than Erebonia. This cult favourite JRPG finally sees an NA release on September 27th, also featuring quality of life improvements and enhanced visuals.
NIS America shows no signs of slowing down on their plethora of releases in the coming months with their huge lineup announcement.
