Tokyo Game Show 2018 was jam-packed full of announcements, many of which we were anticipating and others that were quite the surprise. Nevertheless, Tokyo Game Show 2018 was an impressive event and an exciting experience. Speaking of exciting experiences, we had the opportunity to sit down with President, Executive Producer, and Scenario Writer for Nippon Ichi Software, Sohei Niikawa, who gave us a breakdown of his gaming experiences and life as a gamer. We hope that you enjoy this interview piece as much as we did!
Disgaea 1 Complete - A True Remasterpiece (Nintendo Switch, PS4)
What inspired you to come up with the Disgaea franchise?
Where did the name Disgaea come from?
Being the president of NIS certainly has its challenges, but from a gaming standpoint, what challenges have you been met with during your career?
Will there be any plans to release a new Disgaea title for current consoles? Disgaea 6 perhaps? *laughs*
Will there be any new IPs coming from NIS in the near future?
Do you have any messages you want to give to fans of NIS?
15 years ago, we established NIS America and have been able to bring our titles to fans around the world. Because of the support of our fans, we are able to continue making games. We are so grateful to them. Thank you to all of you. Your existence is our energy and so long as you are there, we will continue making games for you. Please continue to support us!
While Tokyo Game Show 2018 may have come to an end, it’s still truly a pleasure to have experienced this interview with Niikawa-san, as he not only showed us how passionate he is about creating new content, but that he’s a very passionate gamer himself! We look forward to more content from NIS America and of course, new information pertaining to the Disgaea franchise in the near future! From all of us here at Honey’s Anime, we thank you and wish you all the best in your future endeavours Niikawa-san!
