Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 2 Hitting Switch in May
NIS America has announced Nintendo Switch release dates for Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 2. The bundle — containing remastered versions of tactical RPGs Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman and Makai Kingdom — will release for Nintendo Switch in North America on May 10, 2022, with the European release following on May 13, 2022. A $99.99/£74.99 Limited Edition is currently available to pre-order from NIS America’s North American and European online stores. A PC release is also planned for spring 2022, but its exact release date has not been confirmed.
Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman was originally released for PlayStation Portable in 2010. The game sees players controlling a silent character who takes on the mantle of the Unlosing Ranger after the previous one is killed while rushing to confront the Darkdeath Evilman and save Japan. The new Unlosing Ranger trains up in an alternate version of Earth, home to randomly-generated dungeons.
Makai Kingdom was originally released for PlayStation 2 in 2005, with a PlayStation Portable version released in Japan in 2011. The game puts players in the role of the overlord Zetta, who tries to restore the Sacred Tome — a book that controls reality — after he burns it and has to seal himself inside to avoid his own destruction. The remastered release is based on the PlayStation Portable version and includes its extra Petta Mode story starring Zetta’s daughter from the future.
