  • Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (PS Vita)

    Not calling it NIS Europe?

    • Sal Romano

      Nah. NIS America already publishes games in Europe under the name NIS America.

  • Yaro

    Thats pretty nise. Sorry I had to.

    • yuxz13

      Good one.

  • Andrew Arndt

    its true but this greatr news im happyi can buy from nis once more finally, ;D

  • Vayne

    We have Gamestop and Amazon, why a own store?

    • usagi_san

      Why not? Company can directly deal with consumers without needing a middle man having to be sold on selling their product; first-hand data that allows them to determine how well their games sell, etc.

    • Elvick

      Because they deal exclusively from their store as far as their Collector’s Editions are concerned. And now Europe can order it straight from them directly, instead of importing through their NA store or buying second hand.

      It’s better for any NISA fan in Europe.

  • Nightcore34

    Finally Europe gets some love.

  • Zukato

    For Europe, in the name of love!

  • Astraye

    Atlus should watch and learn.

    • DukeVerde

      Persona Q is by Atlus, so yeah… I think they are learning. <_<

      • Elvick

        Not sure how NISA publishing Persona Q in Europe is “Atlus learning”.

        • Luffink

          They should learn and publish their own games in Europe. I had to import Trauma Center 2, and couldn’t get Trauma Team because of the Wii region lock

          • DukeVerde

            They are telling NISA to sell a box, oh my sweet jesus… I know, that so deducts points from Atlus not wanting to waste expenses and time doing it themselves. -_-

            • Elvick

              They don’t “tell NISA” to do anything.

              • DukeVerde

                Oh, so NISA does it out of the kindness of their hearts? That’s not how business works, sorry.

                • Elvick

                  If you think that was my point… Lol, so dumb.

                  • DukeVerde

                    What was your point, besides trying to be snarky?

        • Pyrofrost

          Because Atlus and NISA made a deal that would make getting games to Europe more smoothy. That, in itself, translates to “Atlus learning.”

          “Atlus not learning” would be them continuing to work with Ghostlight and Zen on a majority of projects.

          • Elvick

            Altus learning would be them expanding. They are larger and have higher profile IP than NIS does in and out of Japan. Yet they still rely on a 3rd party for Europe.

            • Pyrofrost

              It’s probably less expensive for them to piggy-back off of NISA and use TK-EU as a distributor. The deal between the two of them was likely something that was mutually beneficial for them anyway, as Atlus and NIS (before there was a NISA) were business partners in the past.

              The point is, that they are doing things to make the localization transition smoother for them than it was.
              If they weren’t “learning” they would just sit on their hands, while continuing to work with Ghostlight and Zen.

      • Astraye

        PQ is DEVELOPED by Atlus, Nisa is bringing the game in Europe.

      • Ash_Riot

        Shin Megami Tensei IV being digital only in EU after all of this time (over a year) is not a sign of “Atlus learning”…

    • Pyrofrost

      How is Atlus not learning? The whole reason Atlus is collaborating with NISA, is due to the distribution deal NISA has with with TK-EU, and the complications they go through when working with companies like Ghostlight and Zen. They formed the whole deal with NISA to use TK-EU for distribution and make getting games to Europe a bit easier.

  • DarthBrian

    Great news for Europeans! Congrats! :)

  • sackboy97

    That’s really nice news! Without the high shipping prices the limited for DR2 becomes very tempting!

  • Unretributed

    “When the store launches next Tuesday”

    But next Tuesday is the 24th not July 1st….

  • Demolish

    I want send this news to Atlus Co. :)

  • Elvick

    Great news for Europe fans!

  • Santashi

    Hurrah! Go NISA! The extra shipping cost and customs possibility always made me hesitate to order from them in the past, so this is great news.

  • 武神水樹

    Congrats EU

  • DGM09

    Well, that answers my question of where to buy Persona Q’s Limited Edition and makes Danganronpa 2 definitely cheaper. Wish this had been created sooner since I ordered quite a few games from them, but it’s great they’re putting this up.

    • Elvick

      Just think that your orders probably helped this happen!

  • Zechs

    <3 NISA. I'm gonna buy so many limited editions…

  • devilmaycry0917

    where is Xseed???

    • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

      Xseed doesn’t handle physical releases in Europe, so if NIS didn’t, we would get digital only games here.

  • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

    No Dancing All Night news yet? I really wish NIS brought this one in Europe, too.

  • Noelemahc

    This would mean Persona Q would be the first ATLUS game to get a proper LE in Europe since never. Also, this means that unless ATLUS (who is self-publishing P4A in Europe from now on) releases the SE for P4U, the Tarot deck cannot be completed. Bummer.

  • PrinceHeir

    Good for you!

  • artemisthemp

    Now I don’t have to worry about DLC for NISA Vita

  • Kazkari

    Has anything been mentioned about Fairy Fencer F? The news everywhere is so lackluster, I seriously can’t find anything useful.
