With the release of Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 3, RPG fans were able to relive the cult classic Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. However, with that nostalgia came a reminder that the game’s sequels never released in the West officially. That is finally changing with Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles! NIS America just introduced the first of the two sequels, Rhapsody II: Ballad of the Little Princess, with a brand new spotlight trailer.

The protagonist of Rhapsody II, Kururu, shows how she is just like her mother Cornet in the trailer below:
