Excerpt: Absorbing, engrossing and captivating are all lovely words, which may define similar things, but they all describe Nippon Ichi’s (better known as the developer of the offbeat but excellent Disgaea) newest strategy RPG: Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome.
Excerpt: As a big time fan of Nippon Ichi’s (NIS) Strategy RPG offerings, Makai Kingdom presents a conundrum. As a fan, Makai Kingdom offers the deep, time-consuming strategy gameplay NIS is known for – making it a sure fire winner.

Excerpt: It should go without saying that, as a Nippon Ichi developed strategy RPG (SRPG), Makai Kingdom (MK) is wonderfully complex, filled to the brim with strategy and polished as only the finest of SRPG makers could do.
Summary: Nippon Ichi Software seems to have some bizarre fixation on the underworld, demons, and all the things that usually come after a not so righteous life. All of their titles have something to do with this strangely interesting yet disturbing place.
