NIS America recently held its annual Showcase and has laid out its plans for the year ahead. Along with a bunch of release dates and information on previously announced titles, NIS America revealed some new games coming to Nintendo Switch.
Headlining the announcements were an HD remaster of the 3DS JRPG, The Alliance Alive and a new sci-fi, steampunk RPG called Destiny Connect: Tick-Tock Travelers.
The Alliance Alive HD Remastered
The Alliance Alive originally launched on 3DS in Japan in 2017 and was later published worldwide by Atlus. Players control a party of up to nine characters, taking on enemies in a traditional JRPG-style, turn-based combat system. The nine members of the “Night Crows” must fight “The Daemons” who have invaded this fantasy world. The Alliance Alive is set thousands of years earlier as they seek to restore the world to its former glory.
The Alliance Alive HD Remastered will be migrating to Nintendo’s latest console from the 3DS this autumn. PS4 and PC players are also in luck as NIS America revealed that the remaster of the JRPG hit will also be headed to those platforms.
Destiny Connect: Tick-Tock Travelers
Destiny Connect: Tick-Tock Travelers is an all-new game from NIS. In the game, friends Sherry, Pegreo, and their time-travelling robot, Isaac must work together to uncover the mysteries of Clocknee. As the clock struck midnight and a new millennium was about to begin, a swarm of hostile machines suddenly flooded the town, becoming frozen in time in the process. You’ll need to revisit the past to discover secrets and unravel the mystery behind this unprecedented event.
While we’ve known for a while that Destiny Connect: Tick-Tock Travelers has been in development, we now have a solid release date for its debut in the west. Expect to see Destiny Connect: Tick-Tock Travelers hitting shelves this Autumn on Nintendo Switch and PS4.
Alongside the two big titles announced for the fall, NIS America revealed release dates and additional information for previously announced games.
Eager fans awaiting RPG Maker MV will be pleased to hear that the game is still on track for later in 2019. NIS America is also promising that the console version of the game will pack in double the content and assets of its PC counterpart. However, it’s not all good news as the planned Xbox One release will no longer be happening as NIS America focus their attention to the Nintendo Switch and PS4.
Those holding out for a physical release of Neo ATLAS 1469 are also in luck. NIS America revealed during their Showcase that the game will receive the cartridge treatment for the first time on April 9th, 2019.
