During day 1 of Anime Expo, NIS America presented a panel dedicated to video games.

The panel began showcasing trailers for the previously announced game titles like Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited, Dangan Ronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Natural Doctrine, and Fairy Fencer F, which were playable on the show floor at the NIS America booth and were followed by an announcement of three new titles.

First announced was a puzzle action game titled, htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary. The game will focus on a young girl named Mion who awakens from a slumber with no memories of who she is. She is trapped in a large labyrinth and has to escape with the help of two fireflies who have the power of  light and shadow to solve puzzles and advance.  htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary will be a PS Vita download title via the PSN this fall.

The next announcement was that NIS America will be localizing Criminal Girls: Invite Only for the PS Vita next year. A very interesting and odd game that has you controlling a bunch of convicted girls who are trying to escape from where they are being imprisoned. The girls need to be motivated to get stronger if they ever want to leave. Will you help them escape?

The next game was a bit of a surprise, but at the same time was something many of us were expecting. NIS America announced The Awakened Fate Ultimatum (also known as The Guided Fate Cross Thesis), and it will be arriving on the PlayStation 3 in 2015.

A sequel to The Guided Fate Paradox, which released last year, will have a different focus where you need to save one of two girls. Noizi Ito will return as the character designer, and it will include a special story with Haruhi Suzumiya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Shana from Shakugan no Shana. Your choices will play a heavy impact, and you can’t always save everyone no matter how powerful a god you may be.

There was one last surprise announcement made by Nippon Ichi Software President Sohei Niikawa, who said that the next Disgaea game is in development.
