2014 was probably the best year for NIS America to date in my experience. They had a number of outstanding releases, from the usual suspects like Disgaea to surprises like Danganronpa. Already some of the release plans for 2015 and getting announced, and it looks promising for fans of the company.
Let's start with the best-known, but take a peek at a pair of other titles as well:
We are very excited to officially announce that the next entry in the long-lived Disgaea series, Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance is making its way to North America and Europe in Fall 2015, for the PlayStation®4 entertainment system! Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance will be available as both a physical and digital release.

The sixth home console entry to the legendary Disgaea series tells a tale of revenge, and of rebellion.
