Nippon Ichi Software Reportedly In Financial Hot Water With Employees Unable To Be Paid

>the announcement itself, which states the total requested funds raised of 573,638,750 yen is for the cost of developing a game, including employee pay.

>The other big misstep in recent times is with Disgaea RPG, their mobile title which has failed to recoup invested costs.

>News has come from various Japanese news outlets that Nippon Ichi Software, the studio behind the Disgaea series and other titles like Destiny Connect, Yomawari, and more, is in financial trouble and allegedly need funding to pay employees.

>While Nippon Ichi Software recently did well with Labyrinth of Refrain and Disgaea 5 Complete, owing to overseas sales, as a whole their games have not been doing well

>The news is based off a recent announcement by the company via the JASDAQ stock exchange that Nippon Ichi was applying for an MS Warrant Stock, a move which is seen by traders as a last resort of sorts.

>Essentially, it’s a way of raising funds by selling stocks for cheaper used by companies who have become unable to borrow funds from the bank or investors.

>The downside is that it screws over investors by incurring losses as stocks are now worth less. While this move can be used several times to raise funds (and this is Nippon Ichi’s first, meaning Nippon Ichi isn’t going to just shut down tomorrow), it incurs loss of trust from investors.

>As for the allegations about not being able to pay employees, this is a deduction based on the announcement itself, which states the total requested funds raised of 573,638,750 yen is for the cost of developing a game, including employee pay. In the event that they don’t manage to raise the full amount, employee salaries will be prioritized.

>The other big misstep in recent times is with Disgaea RPG, their mobile title which has failed to recoup invested costs. The game entered maintenance hell since its March 19 launch, and ended up being pulled in April for further fixing, with at least three months needed to fix everything, which means further costs are being put into the project without any money earned back.

>Disgaea RPG also caused a stock plummet back in April.

Reminder that NISA is only kept alive because of "owing to overseas sales". NISA would die if it wasn't for the censorship-tolerant sycophants supporting these shrill jackasses, and if NISA died then NIS would die.

TL;DR NIS is made a mobile game which sucked so hard and was so broken it knee-capped them. They had decent sales in vidya but that was really just because of Westerners buying NISA trash. They had to file for some maneuver in the Japanese NASDAQ and it's tantamount to flipping the bird to current investors while gaping in public to sell your ass for food money. But don't worry, if things get worse they will prioritize employee paychecks which they can't really afford right now pls gib 574 Million yen so we don't die pls

TL;DR for the TL;DR NIS is on fire and asking for gibs in the moonrune stock market

I thought it was the French who were cucking out, since NISA games were the only weebshit they get or something to that effect. I remember reading about that during the Ys thread at least.

Let me tell you about Ys 8s PC port.

The PC port was shat out in a terrible, godawful state. The game ran like ass. The blur effect that accompanies meaty attacks or monster roars tanked the framerate even harder. You could not exit the game without alt-F4'ing. Certain bosses and effects would outright crash the game. That's not even getting into the giant trashfire that was the translation, going from getting Sahad's hair color wrong in text, to translating "chasm" to "big hole", to eventually giving up by the midway point of the game and forgetting to use punctuation marks and correct grammar, and eventually just being so lazy to double check which character is supposed to say what, so you have someone like Hummel, who is a quiet professional who's kind of ironically edgy but not really, ends up saying something like "DUDE GHOSTS SCARE ME GAHAHAHA " which is another shittier character.

Are the French localizations as fucked as the English ones? I would have to assume so, but I'm hoping there's an anon with experience there. Surely they still have to deal with the same game breaking, console melting programmers, even if they have a better class of translator.

Also OP you might want to copy out your posts considering there was already a NIS is burning thread >>16480782 and both OPs provide good information. Hopefully vols don't do anything retarded to your thread but you never know.

I am getting a feeling that something is wrong here. Namely I think murica branches of nip companies are planning takeover of sorts as with Soyny. It goes like this:

>Nip companies are bound by nip laws that they cannot sell over half their share to gaijin so filthy gaijin cannot creep into nip

>But the law does not prohibit opening gaijin branches

>Fucking (((rats))) plan an inverse takeover by gaslighting through social media and political pressure on the main branches to get the nip to make horrible decisions

>Sales plummets, main branch kneecapped

>It is time for main branch to close and the gaijin branch to take all the assets, IPs, and make all decisions

>Circumvented the law entirely, as expected of (((them))), centuries of nepotism, usury, and mad rule lawyering makes them pretty much devils in the flesh

Someone need to contact our sister board on 2ch and warn them and get them to warn the main branches in nipland, but the thing is gaijin cannot post there and I do not know if VPN can work there either. We need to get the message across somehow.

I can confirm. French localisations are actually good, since they stray away from the English ones and base themselves off the Japanese ones.

That's the same translation quality that saved Fire Emblem since Awakening, since French localisators were basically fitting as many of the Japanese content into the American mold. And while it's harder when the game is actually modified for the American release (which happened with Fates), French releases either kept most of the Japanese text or revamp the text to fit the spirit of the original one while crushing any meme-worthy content. Except in some cases like Pokémon, where they just add new ones, like a fucking reference to the Gen 1 fossils meme in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

NISA is taking its time with CS3, which is all good for the game, but knowing how cheap they are, the return might not be what they are looking for, "too much money and time for a game to sell like this". Sen 4 is going to be even worse since it will sell less. If they can see that happening, they might release sen 4 in a terrible state or just eat it up to avoid the wrath of Falcom.

Knowing how desperate NISA and NIS are for money after losing so many franchises and all those red numbers coming from NIS, it wouldn't surprise me.

I dont believe for a second nisa is giving a shit how CS3 comes out. Itll be shit and ill hold this position until it releases. If they cant even do a light story game like ys8 properly, theyll never do cs3 right.

French translations in Nippon Ichi Software games only started with YS8 as it was a big success due of this. France is also the very best market for japanese goods even imports this japonism craze is over a century old, and anime were a huge hit in France since the 70s, so NISA did a sound logical business choice. Remember that for the average french weeb, knowing english was a long-time per-requite by default for vidya.

As for the quality of the translations, I have no idea honestly.

fa0c19  No.16488253



Not a baguette so I can't say for certain, but it might be worth considering which entries exactly it is that you're looking at for the French scripts. Just saying since NIS games up until the PS3/PSP were apparently handled by Koei in PAL, and I wouldn't be surprised if the PSP extended ports of 1, 2, and Phantom Brave for the most part might reuse Koei's prior work.


Should be worth noting that obviously quality is going to vary between companies regardless of where one is. Whoever 505 Games hired to do the French script in WA5 did a deliberately meme-tier script from what I hear, the sort not even the frogs were willing to put up with, and resulting in them just playing it with the English script instead (which I assume 505 would have simply bought the rights to from XSEED).

They poached three but it was just to damage control. One was just to get the old voice actors back after they sent out a letter stating they would not work with NISA again after being poorly treated during Ys 8. Two have two years of work to fix and do in half a year, going from when NISA announced they got CS3 and when they actually got CS3 back in 2017. One left after her cat died. I dont know if she came back. The other two have to contend with the incompetent people at NISA who will most likely write over what they have judging by how they treated Durante's work.

CS3 will still, unfortunately, come out under NISA since i dont see that company dying by the end of the year.

NIS stocks are actually on an upturn in the long term. Not that it matters – anons need to get it through their skulls that the stock value DOES NOT MATTER to the company itself. The company does not get any value from rising stock price (unless it's sitting on stocks that it plans to sell for extra capital, but that's not all that common). The stock value matters to the STOCKHOLDER, ie retards that know absolutely nothing about vidya but bought the stock because it looked "perspective". In theory, a drop in stock value could motivate the investors to call for a change in leadership of the company, only that shit just doesn't happen in vidya, because again, the investors don't know shit about the thing they invested in, and so they get bullshitted by company leadership blaming the losses on things outside of their control etc., with an extra sprinkling of concern trolling, all to make sure enough of the investors are mollified.

The stock value of a company doesn't mean shit as far as the compny itself is interested. What matters are its earnings.

This is misinfo by a NISA shill to damage controll. NISA only got three people from xseed, and it was several months after they acquired and began work on CS3 and shortly before the publicly announced they got the game. So this should tell you NISA knew there would be backlash and as damage control hired these people at the last minute to use them as shields to deflect critisism. One of those three was a voice director to get the dub english VOs on board and she literally left a few weeka later because her cat died and other personal shit. This leaves two producers left from xseed.

NIS’ attempt to bring their signature strategy series to mobile devices with Disgaea RPG has also been a disaster, as the publisher had to pull the game back in April in order to fix its rampant bugs.

The WiiU's failure had nothing to do with that. It was the massive lack of third party IPs, barely any ports (that would be inferior anyway) from other platforms, bad advertising to the point where people thought the WiiU was simply a tablet for the Wii, and it didn't even have any system sellers past Smash and 1 Mario game.

Remember when NIA was good? :^(


One of the main reason WiiU failed because the overpriced touchscreen Gamepad was fucking retarded. I'd say the SJWism of Nintendo of America was the second biggest factor especially because it hurt Fire Emblem. But the main reason was because not enough of the first party Nintendo titles where actually that appealing. Nobody really buy's Nintendo for Third party developers. Most people just want more good (challenging) Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong and Metriod titles. What is killing Nintendo are the casual titles like Yoshi Story and Captain Toad and the flood of "Indie" Shovelware. Skyward Sword and Other M being awful and Mario 3D world being middling was just the nail in the coffin. If Metriod and Zelda was good the WiiU would have sold better. Hell Bayonetta 2 was almost a system seller alone but none of the other games aside from Tropical Freeze and Mario 3D looked remotely fun.

The switches biggest problem atm is that it also is lacking competent first party titles. It started strong with Odyssey, Xenoblade 2 and BoTW but its falling off fast with ports and hyper casual games like Yoshi, Animal Crossing and Kirby. The fact that Switch is handheld is the strongest factor.

IIRC Skyward Sword was also on Wii U, and I made a mistake about Other M. I never owned a Wii or Wii U. But I think the core of my position is largely actuate.

>NIS is selling Daiwa Securities 3750 stock options at 837 yen/option to obtain later up to 375,000 shares of NIS stock at 90% of the then current value. NIS gets immediate cash 3,138,750 yen, but NIS are devaluing their shares by allowing someone to buy at a discount.

>The newly issued shares available on 6/3 will provide NIS possibly with up to ¥573,638,750 depending on how many of the options Daiwa Securities exercises and when.

>It actually just states that they will use the money to develop games, and although not needing to raise capital like this would be great, it doesn't seem to warrant this kind of alarm. The mention of dev pay is just as part of the cost to develop games.

>Say NIS isn't doing well and their stock becomes ¥1100/share. With options, Daiwa Securities can still buy shares at ¥990/share (lower limit) and immediately sell. Theoretically netting ¥41,250,000. Realistically the net will be a lot lower since the sell price will be lower.

>The bottom exercise price of the warrants to be issued by NIS is 920 yen. If the share price drops under 920 yens, the warrant bears no intrinsic value. In such a case, anyone who acquires the warrant would lose money.

>Of course, that doesn't mean the stock price can't or won't recover later. IT media also confirmed that NIS had 2 billion yen in cash and equivalents on its balance sheet, dated March 30th. The severe drop in the stock exchange is a serious alert but again we have yet to see actual evidence that the company is in immediate danger.

Good to see they're recovering.

They're devaluing their own stocks for quick cash, kind of like a nigger selling his ebt card for a quick fix.

They're using it for "new and existing IPs"


i.e. To get the Disgaea mobile game actually running, and for that new PS4/Switch game they have coming out next month.

Unfortunately Disgaea RPG is pretty much guaranteed to be a flop after all the bad press, and the new game looks… not very good.

But [repeating-digits]-man, you're now thinking of the hiatus Hagiwara and Bastard!!! have since we have gone back to Griffith's sexual adventures one again. Oh wait, you're actually talking about Guts and his potato waifu, nevermind

Disgaea was legitimately a good game series. It's just a shame the latter games got casualized by adding the Cheat Shop. But you are right Disgaea also needs Takehito Harada. Harada dose not need Disgaea.

A Japanese friend told me the tik tok game was pretty bad too. Likely it flopped as well as a result.

Now those are some dead eyes if I've ever seen them. You're right on both accounts regarding disgaea: it absolutely needs Harada to retain it's distinction and fans, as well as the series being wounded by unwanted additions like the cheat shop.

Having only played D5, I know that the cheat shop is what makes the endgame grind unbearable. Once you get to the postgame they start bloating stats on enemies to the point where you barely tickle them while they oneshot you without grinding. Was this something they did because the game had the cheat shop, or is this one of those cases where people complain because games no longer force you to grind for hours?

On a somewhat related note, D5 really suffers from how you're supposed to grind up one character to be absurdly strong in the postgame, at the expense of the whole strategy RPG thing.

>chara world grinding, which if course only applies to one character

>gear, which you want to be the highest rarity so you can't just buy or find it like in another SRPG, you have to find it while winning the lottery

>item world once you have the gear

>have to focus on stat growths so you can't even put them in the exp squad to get a bit of exp for the others

>grind weapon masteries and skill levels

>grind every class for one character so that you can reincarnate and level up again except with ridiculously boosted stats

It's all fucking grinding. It takes hours upon hours to do this shit for one character, so all the other units become completely pointless. You have to go through all the grinding to use them for anything but building combos so that your one superunit can oneshot the enemy harder. The enemy that, when you first unlocked it, was literally a million times stronger than your units combined. Why would they take away the entire unit variety unless you spend hours grinding each one up to a usable power level? In any other SRPG or JRPG I've played you rarely have to grind anything other than a unit's level, and even then it's a relatively small difference in power that might allow you to use the unit even if it's a few levels behind. As opposed to enemy stats being so bloated that each unit and every tiny aspect of that unit and its gear needing to be ground on its own. Based on what I've heard from an older Disgaea fan this was a flaw in the old games too, so it can't be entirely because of the cheat shop.

I mean I've unironically spent thousands of hours in various Disgaea games (most recently around 500 in D5C) but pretending the games aren't entirely about grinding is fucking stupid.

Most post-game content works in such a way as to mandate a whole fucking lot of grinding just to get the tools to challenge super bosses and stages because their numbers are so bloated strategy is pretty much fucking useless below a certain treshold your units have to be in. It's not a game like Tactics Ogre where grinding is not only NOT recommended, but excessive amounts of it are entirely discouraged to the point they can make the game harder and engagements are balanced in such a way as to scale with your current party level and demand more strategy from the player's part than just infinitely growing numbers. You HAVE to grind in Disgaea, that's the entire point of the games.

Did something happen today? They are at -13% at the moment. What's with this sudden drop?

Disgaea is all about grinding. I know most people here seem to hate the concept of grinding, but as far as a game made out of grinding as the core gameplay element Disgaea is about the best it could be. It's interesting because there are so many different details and ways to grind and how absurdly powerful you can become if you understand how to put it all together and put the time into it.
