Who knows at this point, we’ll have to wait for more info… the press release was really vague. My guess is they’ll dub it though, since they do dub their games. Probably a low production Los Angeles dub. They normally work with PCB… but who knows at this point.
NIS is in a weak financial standing though, as Tonka mentioned previously… which makes this re-entering (they released Disgaea before) into a gloomy and niche anime industry all the more surprising.

"As Kotaku previously reported, the operating profit for the Gifu Prefecture-based company is down 97.5 percent during the first nine months of this financial year.
The company’s closing price on the JASDAQ (Japanese NASDAQ) was ¥36,200 on Friday. When the market opened this morning, and investors began reacting to Nippon Ichi’s financial statement, the stock price ultimately dropped ¥7,000 (US$78) as the stock was unloaded. With the stock’s value dropping almost 20 percent, the JASDAQ put a freeze on the price so it could not slide any further south."[/quote]
I must say, I find a suprise that the makers of the 1998 hit game “Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure” has decided to enter the R1 market. Needless to say this is good thing and I’ll be praying that NIS America makes wise investments and doesn’t go the way of Pioneer/Geneon USA since it’s nice to see another SoCal label fill that empty void left by Geneon.
