Nippon Ichi NGP title confirmed

Nippon Ichi Software has confirmed rumours of an NGP game in the works, due some time this year.

Destructoid reports that Nippon Ichi VP Johanna Hirota announced an in-development NGP game at an event in San Francisco last week.

Hirota wouldn’t be drawn on details, but did give a vague release window of “this coming year”; this matches speculation of a 2011 Japanese launch for the NGP.

The announcement correlates an earlier rumour that the studio had an NGP title in the works, although not that it’s a new Badman.

Nippon Ichi is best known for the Disgaea, Priny, and Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! franchises.
