NIS America to release Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles in North America and Europe this Summer for PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC

NIS America has announced that Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles will launch for North America and Europe in Summer 2023 for PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Marl Kingdom Chronicles is a dual-pack of two classic RPGs, both of which are being officially released in English for the first time:

  • Rhapsody II: Ballad of the Little Princess, which originally released for PlayStation in November 1999.
  • Rhapsody III: Memories of Marl Kingdom, which originally released for PlayStation 2 in Japan in December 2000.

Rhapsody II and Rhapsody III will release separately for PC via Steam.

These two Rhapsody titles conclude the Rhapsody trilogy, following Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure which re--released for Nintendo Switch and PC just last August. (Note: There are currently no plans to bring the original Rhapsody to PlayStation 5).

The game will support English and Japanese audio with English text. The songs will remain voiced in Japanese. Limited Editions for all console platforms are available to pre-order from NIS America's online storefront.
