Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?


Explosive penguins always equals a good time. Rejoice Disgaea fans! Your favorite lovable yet easily combustible penguins get their very own game. NIS is branching the Disgaea series out into...

Great old school platforming action ; Solid controls ; Awesome humor and charm

Difficulty may turn off all but the hardcore

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero


The first news of a Prinny dedicated title had me excited, and the fact that it was going to be on PSP, and a platformer meant I could take the console out of retirement. That was back in late 2008, and now the game has been released and for a first...

Prinny's difficulty is something people from the NES era can easily appreciate. Everyone else is just going wind up with a broken PSP.

Prinny: Can I Really Be a Hero?


You know, I'm not one to complain about difficulty in games. In fact I love it when games offer me a legitimate challenge. If you're anything like me and you love a good fight that will give you a hard time then man, oh man, do you want to check out...

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? is only for Disgaea fans or lovers of hard platforming titles. Anybody else who applies will find the game's challenge too frustrating and may be lost in all the "doods". If you're one of the select few who will enjoy...

PSP Review - Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero?


This PSP platformer is so difficult, you get 1000 lives to try and complete it. Are you up to the challenge? The heroes of the game summed it up nicely: "Give it your Prinny best, dood!"

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?- PSP


Dood! So, like, there's this game, dood, where you get to play as the Prinnies! They're, like, the heroes, dood! I guess that's because they have to be, otherwise Master Etna will kill them...So,...

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? Review


For those who haven't entered the demon-obsessed world of the darkly humorous Disgaea franchise, this one's going to take a bit of pre-review explaining. You see, Prinnies, who up until now only played a supporting role in the Japanese tactical RPG...

Prinny’s cute-meets-macabre humor, engrossing presentation, and ability to make your PSP fun again, are reason enough to pick it up. And if you don’t know a Prinny from a Chocobo, don’t worry about it: this game is the perfect introduction to a...

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? (PSP)


Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? is a sucker punch in the collective gut of every overzealous Disgaea fan with the audacity to believe that their favorite support character deserved a game of its own. Instead of creating a role-playing game that...

As much as I want to hate on Prinny for being more difficult than it ought to be for Disgaea fans, the game has a lot to offer that you won't notice right away. If you give up too soon on Prinny, you'll miss out on cool extras and unlockable content, a...

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? Sony PSP Review


Again, prinnies look like innocent penguins, but they're reincarnated to serve an angry demon master. It turns out one of them ate her Ultra Dessert, leaving her in an enraged state. It's up to 1,000 of them (yes, that means you have 1,000 lives and...

Superb visuals and audio, challenging gameplay, great sense of humor, package comes with bonus soundtrack CD and limited edition Penny Arcade comic strip

Incredible overuse of the word "dood" (dude), platforming may prove too challenging for some, penguins die

It's not often you see a game featuring an animal that is, in fact, a reincarnated soul of a demon. However, you probably shouldn't put too much thought into it and appreciate Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? for what it is, a charming and engaging...

Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero?



Prinny's elongated title is unmistakably Japanese in flavor and makes no attempt to align itself with the short-winded and, to put it blatantly, indicative titles of other modern games. Similarly, it's gameplay cares nothing for contemporary design...

Product Specifications

Following an urgent order, a lowly Prinny rushed to meet his boss, Demon Lord Etna, in her chamber. He arrived to see Etna beating his fellow squadmates to a pulp! She was definitely in a bad mood, being even more abusive and violent than usual. As it turns out, someone had snatched her favorite dessert from the fridge! Eager to vent her frustration, she orders Prinny to hunt down the Ultra Dessert. And if he doesn't deliver the goods by the next morning, he'll learn what eternal suffering really means. And since Prinny is at the very bottom of the Netherworld food chain (more like in the gutter), he was no choice but to snap into action. Adorning the red scarf that proves his status as the game's hero, Prinny sets out with his not-so-faithful Prinny Squad to risk life and limb tracking down the Ultra Dessert.
