Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 2 heads west this May


Two more classics from the archives, Dood

NIS America has announced a release date for the localized edition of its second compendium Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 2. The retro twofer will launch on PC and Nintendo Switch in the west this May. This double pack includes two cult action-RPGs, featuring the colorful characters, wild creatures, and melodramatic anime action that is a trademark of the NIS catalog.

The first title is Makai Kingdom: Reclaimed and Rebound, a revamped edition of 2005 PlayStation 2 release Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome. This Disgaea spin-off follows sees the player take control of overlord-turned-book (yep) Lord Zetta as he attempts to overthrow the Netherworld from his new, page-by-page form. Use a huge range of spells and weaponry, as well as the game’s unique INVITE system, to claim the realm from your enemies and place yourself back on the bookshelf… erm… throne.

The second included title, ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman, is making its first appearance on a modern platform in over a decade. First released for the PlayStation Portable way back in 2010, this wild, tactical RPG places a heavy emphasis on customization, as players build their own custom hero and lay waste to armies of underworld denizens in a quest to face their fate as the “Absolute Victory Unlosing Ranger.” Oh, and you’ll also rescue world savior Super Baby and defeat the nefarious Darkdeath Evilman.

Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 2 launches on PC (via Steam) and Nintendo Switch in North America on May 10, with Europe to follow a few days later on May 13. NIS Classics Vol. 1 is available now.
