Today NIS America, Inc's PR/Marketing Coordinator Nao Zook has announced that starting today you can pre-order Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! on PSP UMD.

To quote: Seeing how much you guys are interested, we've decided to start the pre-order for the Badman UMD at However, in order to make it possible for us to manufacture the UMD, we will have to get at least 1000 orders.

So we decided to start accepting pre-orders for the UMD (ends 11/13), and IF we receive at least 1000 pre-orders, we will start the manufacturing process.

If we can get some support from retailers, we will make the Badman UMD even if the pre-order does not reach 1000 orders by 11/13! If you know any friends, family members, coworkers, or anyone else who liked Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!, please let them know they can now get the UMD version of Badman at!

I really appreciate your understanding of why we are doing this. Some of you who voted "Nay!" for the poll might be wondering about our move to start the pre-order, but the poll results from here and the NISA website indicated that there were many people who wanted to have the UMD version of Badman. So, we wanted to support the fans who want to have the UMD of Badman as much as we can!

Before wrapping up this post, I would like to let you know that the promotional trailer for Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! 2: Time To Tighten Up Security! is available now for your viewing pleasure!

Badman 2 will have 2.5 times as many heroes, 4 times the number of stages, and 3.3 times the number of monsters than the first Badman! What I really like about this sequel, well, besides the subtitle :p, is that your creepy crawly monster army can mutate!

If you don't keep your army's ecosystem balanced, your Omnom bugs will mutate into this looooooong Omnomnomnom the image below. When you have mutated monsters and creatures, they will gain new abilities and strengths. So, mutation is good! This is just one example of mutation. Make sure to watch the Badman 2 trailer to learn more about it!

Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! 2: Time To Tighten Up Security! will be released in early 2010! As it gets closer to the release date, I hope I can come back here again to talk about it!

Thank you very much for supporting NISA, as always! It's getting colder and colder lately, so stay healthy and fight off the flu and those nasty colds!
