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