Among all the other games coming out this year, Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 1 was recently released, a collection containing Phantom Brave and Soul Nomad.

I’d never played either of those before, and I’m interested in trying them someday.

(In fact, I probably would have picked them up at launch if this wasn’t the year in which every game I want comes out at once.)

The “Volume 1” in the title was a pretty good indication that there would eventually be another collection, and today they officially announced Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 2.

Volume 2 contains Makai Kingdom: Reclaimed and Rebound and ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman. According to comments I’ve seen online, this includes the new content of the previously Japan-exclusive Makai Kingdom PSP port.

I’m not too familiar with either of these games, but I’ll be sure to look into them. NIS Classics Volume 2 will be out for PC and Switch sometime in Spring 2022.

Meanwhile, we’ve got a lot of other great games coming out as well, with Tales of Arise right around the corner. Have you played any of the NIS Classics titles so far? Which are you hoping will be added to theoretical future volumes?

  1. I loved Phantom Brave when I was younger, but I never could get myself far enough to actually beat it. I can’t remember if it was that I got distracted by other games, if it got difficult, or if I just got too lost in side-content to actually progress the main story… but it has long been a goal of mine to go back to it and finish it, someday. I remember the story being very fun and cute with some darker moments, though definitely much lighter in tone overall than the Disgaea series.
