Who wouldn't want to play a game called The Princess is Money-Hungry?

Apparently the folks at Nippon Ichi Software didn't get the memo that I need another Japanese Vita game sitting on my shelf like I need a hole in the head.

Why do I say that? Because a couple of days ago the developer and publisher of weird and wonderful niche titles went ahead and announced one. It's name, as I'm sure can guess (and if you can't, lift your eyes and look at the headline at the top of this post), is The Princess is Money-Hungry.

OK, so that's its unofficially translated name. In the original Japanese, its name is Princess ha Kane no Mouja.

Whatever you call it, though, this upcoming action RPG sounds intriguing. Don't take my word for it; here's what had to say about it after reading through The Princess is Money-Hungry's just-launched Amazon Japan listing:

"You’ll defeat enemies and collect money, and when you find a really tough enemy, you can even buy them with money. You can use the money you earn on special moves. When you’re in a pinch, you can somehow use money to get past it."

I guess you could say it sounds a tad like Nintendo's Freshly-Pickled Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, but that's fine with me. Especially since this Vita title's sure to feature Nippon Ichi's charming, trademark spritework.

Does this mean I've already pre-ordered a copy of this sucker (it's set to hit the streets of Japan on Nov. 24)? No, but only because no one's allowing it at the moment.

As soon as that changes, though, you can bet your sweet patootie I'll slap down some money for it. How about you?
