NIS America Announces New Games At Anime Expo!

Yeah, I'm a wee bit late with this one. NIS has just announced 3 games at this year's Anime Expo. The Vita will receive htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary and Criminal Girls: Invite Only while the PS3 will get The Awakened Fate Ultimatum!

Now, an interesting thing about Criminal Girls... A noticed was placed in the press release saying certain aspects of the game will be edited. This kind of notice 1st popped up earlier this year for Monster Monpiece, and I like the fact that NIS is mentioning this upfront, even if fans of the import will hate the notion that the game will not be uncut.

Read more after the break

From NIS:

THE FIREFLY DIARY COMING TO NORTH AMERICA AND EUROPE THIS FALL!
Anime Expo, CA (July 3, 2014) –NIS America is excited to announce that the moody puzzle action game, htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary, will be available digitally this fall in both North America and Europe as a PlayStation ®Vita exclusive! In this atmospheric title, you’ll use the Vita’s touchscreen and rear touch pad to navigate a young girl through dangerous ruins. Two fairies –one operating in light, and the other in shadow –must work in tandem to uncover this girl’s memories and save her from the darkest of fates.
 
About the game:
In the depths of a labyrinthine ruin, a young girl named Mion rises from a deep sleep. Lost, alone, and with no memory of how she got here or where her parents are, she is greeted by two fireflies—one composed entirely of light, and another who lurks among the shadows. By shifting between a world of light and a world of shadows, these two fireflies must work together to recover Mion’s memories and lead her out of the ruins, where voracious shadow beasts, ancient machines, and treacherous traps lie in wait to bar her path. But what secrets do Mion’s lost memories contain? What is the connection between her, the ruins, and the fireflies lighting her escape? The answers may reveal a deeper darkness—one that must be faced from within...

CRIMINAL GIRLS: INVITE ONLY TO HIT NORTH AMERICA AND EUROPE IN 2015

Anime Expo, Calif. (July 3, 2014) –NIS America is happy to announce that we will be bringing Criminal Girls: Invite Only to North America and Europe next year! The game takes the much adored 2010 Playstation®Portable title Criminal Girls, which was released in Japan only, and revamps it with a host of brand new content exclusively for the Playstation®Vita. Explore the depths of Hell as you lead a female gang of delinquents on their quest to absolve themselves of  their sins and be reborn on Earth. But be careful, leading a crew of delinquents to battle and discovery isn’t as easy as it sounds. Wrestle with the girls’ conflicting battle plans, spend some one-on-one time keeping the girls motivated to be their better selves, and uncover their deepest, darkest secrets on the way to reforming them into not just upstanding citizens, but a cohesive, and effective battle group.


About the game:
Seven delinquents, seven sins, and only one way out. Just hired for a new, mysterious job, you
soon discover that this isn’t your normal prison gig. You’ve been entrusted with the care of a crew
of girls whose sins have damned their souls to Hell and an eternity of punishment... Their only hope of salvation is for you to recognize their unique histories, and to guide them along the path to redemption. Navigate through the four trials of the Redemption Program, and motivate your crew of delinquents to learn the skills to redeem themselves, or leave them to their fate.

Key points:
Mind Your Manners: These girls aren’t your typical RPG team –they have minds of their own! To defeat the convicts doing their time in Hell’s dungeons, you’ll need to listen to your team’s desires, and choose your path to victory from the ever-evolving repertoire of skills, spells, and combo attacks that they want to use.
Touching Gameplay: Connect with the girls, and uncover each of their unique personalities
through one-on-one motivational sessions with a unique use of the front touchscreen and rear touchpad, and fulfill the girls’ special requests to discover more about their interesting, and often
dark pasts.
Criminal Girls, Reborn: This Playstation®Vita update will mark the first time a Criminal Girls game makes its way to the US, and with English text! The update also brings previously unplayable characters into the fray—Miu and Himekami—and includes brand new scenarios and levels to challenge your prison smarts. It also revamps the much lauded motivational gameplay with updated artwork, and brand new Live2D graphics and effects.

Notice: In order to bring this title to as many fans as possible in both North America and Europe, NIS America has edited certain aspects of this game.

Anime Expo, Calif. (July 3, 2014)–NIS America is happy to announce that we will be bringing The Awakened Fate Ultimatum to North America and Europe next year! The game will be released exclusively for the PlayStation®3 entertainment system.

About the game:
Several years after a certain revolution came to pass, and the powerful Satanael was defeated, the devils were still dominant in their constant war against the angels. Meanwhile, a certain Celestia was resorting to guerilla warfare to survive. They focused on researching a way to create a "God" to use as their ultimate weapon against the devils. After creating the "Fate Awakening Crystal," which can turn a human into a God, the angels could only wait for the day they found someone who was compatible with it...

One day in the Human World, a boy is attacked by a group of devils on his way home from school.
He is stabbed through the heart, but as he is dying, he gets saved by a mysterious girl, and wakes
up in an unknown location —Celestia. As if guided by the Fate Awakening Crystal that is implanted in his chest, he finds himself thrust into the middle of a war between angels and devils. With his newly awakened powers, he must choose how best to use them, and ultimately, which of the two new girls in his life he will be able to save
...
