Continuing to work on titles developed by Spike Chunsoft, following their success with the Danganronpa franchise, Nippon Ichi Software America have confirmed plans to bring the strategy game Grand Kingdom to both North America and PAL regions in the future. Developed for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, this game seeks to immerse players in the life of a mercenary troop, and allow them to experience tactical and strategic combat in an immersive campaign, as well as online.
While no release date has been locked in as of writing, NIS America are looking at a “Summer” launch window. Expect to hear more about this title in the coming weeks and months.
Mitsutoshi Sakurai | CEO of Spike Chunsoft
We are very excited to be partnering with NIS America to localize and release Grand Kingdom in the West. Danganronpa has seen great success with NIS America so far, and we are confident that they will also do the best job of bringing the experience we envisioned for Grand Kingdom to fans. We hope that fans all over the world will support us and enjoy this new game as well.
Takuro Yamashita | CEO of Nippon Ichi Software America
We’re very happy to be working with Spike Chunsoft once again. Our company was built on tactical and strategy games, such as Disgaea, and it is our goal to create a legacy of fans for Grand Kingdom just as dedicated as those of the Disgaea and Danganronpa series.

About Grand Kingdom
After the fall of the once-prosperous Uldein Empire over one hundred years ago, the Four Great Nations now wage war to claim dominion over the Resonail continent. Battles are no longer fought by honorable knights loyal to a nation, but by mercenaries who sell their services to the highest bidder.
As the leader of a mercenary squad, the player will lead their troops across a battle-scarred continent, overcoming obstacles and adversaries as they complete quests doled out by each nation. In doing so, they will unravel the mystery behind the downfall of a mighty empire.
