Press Release Extract
If it’s humour, depth, tactics and classic RPGing you want, then look no further than Disgaea 2.
Developed by Nippon Ichi, the original Disgaea was voted by RPGfan.com as one of the top 3 games of the year when it was released. It also won the Strategy Game of the Year award on gamespy.com. This sequel retains all of the original game’s “Do anything and try everything” heritage while also making some radical innovations. Fans of Disgaea have also been listened to with their feedback and ideas incorporated into a number of the game’s new features.
Disgaea’s wickedly dark sense of humour has always been one of its most popular features and this has been taken to a whole new level of evil enjoyment with the new Dark Court system. Now the player is positively encouraged to be bad with the game rewarding your darkest most devious actions. But be careful, there are positive and negative results for everything you do within the game. Think you’re badder than you really are and you might just get summoned to court and suffer the shame of being found innocent.
As a direct response to calls from fans of the original, Disgaea 2 will now take place within a brand new 3D environment with animated sprites and anime cut scenes. Players will also be able to stack their characters on top of each other in order to combine their powers and unleash special combos and attacks.
Disgaea 2 is the latest RPG spectacular from Nippon Ichi and follows in the footsteps of the hugely popular titles Makai Kingdom, Phantom Brave, La Pucelle: tactics and of course the massive original Disgaea. With a whole new cast of characters along with many of the gang fondly remembered from the first game all turning up to do battle, Disgaea 2 is already looking like being one of the RPG events of the year.
