Atlus and NIS America have become bosom buddies over the years, especially after the release of the original Disgaea
on PS2. NIS America will not be distributing the title in the US. Rather, specialty publisher Atlus will be taking over that role. It appears that NIS America will simply offer the localization for Disgaea 3
Many know that Atlus games have a tendancy to become quite rare on retail shelves. This should be no different when Disgaea 3
launhces exclusively on PS3 on August 26th. "We are honored to continue working closely with NIS America and provide wide distribution in North America for these three great RPGs," said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Atlus.
"Over the years, we have built a strong relationship with Atlus," said Harusato Akenaga, President of NIS America. "We have worked together on a number of great titles in the past and we are thrilled to partner once again to release Disgaea 3
, Disgaea DS
, and Rhapsody
later this year. Please look forward to some of the most hardcore games to be released for PLAYSTATION 3 and Nintendo DS!"
