The Princess is Money-Hungry details playable Isabella

NIS's action RPG due out later this month in Japan.

The Princess is Money-Hungry

The Princess won’t be the only playable character in The Princess is Money-Hungry, Nippon Ichi Software revealed. Isabella, a zombie character we previously detailed, will also be playable.

Isabella will become an ally of The Princess as the story progresses, and she possess different means of attack. For example, her punches that expose her bare bones, or her suicide bomb attacks that strike her surroundings. She also has other actions like a skull bomb that explodes after a certain amount of time, and a bite attack that restores her HP. Unlike the princess, she cannot use Zenigami’s Calculator, but she can similarly buy up enemies using “Gold Skulls.”

Nippon Ichi Software also shared information on the “Castle of the Ruined Kingdom” element of the game. In the castle, the monsters you acquire in battle become “People of the Land,” and your relics (traps) are stored as assets. If you gather up a certain amount of People of the Land and relics, you’ll be able to spend money to make a “Zenigami Statue.” By using the skill points obtained through worshiping Zenigami, you’ll be able to raise the Princess’ and Isabella’s stats, as well as learn new actions.

The People of the Land and relics an also be used to create armor. Each armor has a different Ougi set, and can grant special effects such as attribute bestowal as well. There are a total of 78 Ougis in the game.

The Princess is Money-Hungry is due out for PS Vita in Japan on November 24.
