NIS America announces Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 1 for Nintendo Switch; includes Phantom Brave & Soul Nomad
During today's New Game Plus Expo stream, NIS America announced Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 1, a Nintendo Switch collection containing two classic Nippon Ichi Software strategy RPGs: Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle Remastered and Soul Nomad & the World Eaters.
This Nintendo Switch collection is set to release in Summer 2021. Additionally, Soul Nomad & the World Eaters will also see an individual release on PC in Summer 2021. Note that Phantom Brave already has a PC release, which should be functionally identical to the remaster included in this Switch collection.
Phantom Brave originally released in 2004 for PlayStation 2 and was the first title to be localized by NIS America. The game saw expanded re-releases on both Nintendo Wii and PlayStation Portable, before getting a PC port in 2016 with all DLC and previous content. The new version included in the Switch release will also contain all content from previous releases. The game stars Ash and Marona in a tactical RPG using a movement ring gameplay system.
Soul Nomad & The World Eaters originally released for PlayStation 2 in 2007 and has never seen a re-release outside of a PSN digital version in Japan. In the game, the player controls a warlord who forms an army capable of either saving the world or destroying it.
An announcement trailer, description, and screenshot set can be found below via NIS America. A Limited Edition can be purchased on NIS America's online store for $99.99.
