    A month ago, Nippon Ichi Software America (NIS America), the publisher of Disgaea, Danganronpa, and many more, announced that they would be holding their annual Press Event. Today, the company will be streaming the event live through their Twitch, where they plan to announce new releases and host some "special guests". Stay tuned at to this thread at 6:45pm PST / 2:45am GMT for GBAtemp's live coverage and information roundup of the stream.

    EDIT:
    The event is now live!

    The company will be turning 25 this year, and will be talking about their upcoming plans for 2018.
    Two upcoming games talked about; Penny Punching princess which is an action RPG, and Witch and Hundred Knight 2 which takes the first game's gameplay and refines it.
    A trailer for The Longest Five Minutes. You can see GBAtemp's official review of it here!
    Witch and the Hundred Knight launches March 27 for PS4 exclusively.
    Indie titles from partnered studios: Fallen Legion for Switch-May 29. Another Switch title, Happy Birthdays (previously the delayed Birthdays: The Beginning) will be released this summer, directed by the creator of the Harvest Moon series.

    Touhou game, Genso Wanderer Reloaded. Coming this Summer as well, Switch and PS4. Comes with new story segments and all DLC from the original game.
    Steam Early Access game, Assault Spy, goes onto early access on May 20. Looks like an anime hack and slash. Also looks very early in development.
    The Lost Child, which appears to be a sort of bootleg Shin Megami Tensei. Kadokawa Games, coming Summer 2018. Kadokawa Games has made titles like Rodea the Sky Warrior, Demon Gaze, and God Wars in the past.
    A localization of a "very old" game, never released outside of Japan. Crime visual novel by Suda51. The 25th Ward: The Silver Case, released initially in 2005, will be releasing on March 13 2018. this is a prequel to the Silver Case.

    Ys 8 gets a Switch trailer. Releasing this summer.
    SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy. Summer, for PS4/Switch. Will be getting a physical edition.
    That's it! End of event.

    Or not! Fake out by the stream, one last reveal, which is Labyrinth of Refrain, coming this fall for Switch/PC/PS4.

    Never had any interest in the games they have. Not to sound mean though. Is either one of two things, more info about the switch port of YS VIII on switch which is confirmed to be done.

    a press event for a single game which is a port, and it has to be one title for some arbitrary reason

    you sure there?

    I'm not sure the whole presentation is about a single game, but may be mentioned. :P

    Hopefully we'll get some information about the status of the PC port of Ys VIII. Last news we had on that front was that the game was still experiencing heavy framerate issues and a memory leak, and would not only require fiddling with deeper code than they intended, but that that work in particular was being passed off to another company entirely. Unlikely we'll receive too much detail regarding that process, of course, but at least a more precise release window wouldn't be out of the question.

    Hoping for them to announce a release for a Disgaea that is actually as good if not more as the first one for a change and another Prinny game, because those were amazing and hilarious!

    Imagine Prinny 3 on the Switch in freaking HD. That would be the end of me.

    I hope 1 and 2 though. V3 shouldn't be played before those two.

    Gimme more Disgaea on Switch! Disgaea 5's my first Disgaea game, and I LOVE it! I don't really know their release schedule for Disgaea games, but would it be a stretch to wonder if a new Disgaea game will be announced tonight?

    One of the few companies I still get excited to hear news from (along with Tales studio and Falcom). Nippon Ichi Software makes some fantastic long-lasting games. Made my PSP my baby back in college, lol.

    Your profile pic just reminded me of ZHP. I almost forget about this game.
