Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness | Announced!
After conquering the land of Yisstol in Fire Emblem: Awakening I have been in the mood for some more SRPG game time. I guess the law of attraction is on my side because NISA just announced they will be releasing a new Disgaea game titled Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness. Now if you’re new to the Disgaea series know that Disgaea 2 is the fan favorite among the mothership titles of the series. So it’s a no brainer that NISA would release games surrounding that particular title. Disgaea 2 is like the Final Fantasy 7 of the Disgaea series to be blunt.
Disgaea D2 is going to follow Laharl, Etna, And Flonne on another bizarre adventure. But this time Laharl has realized his dream of becoming an overload of the netherworld. The denizens around him though do not view him as such a demon worthy of the stature of overload. In order to prove his worth and gain their respect. Laharl has once again taken up his sword on a journey with his “comrades” across the netherworld. He will encounter family he never knew existed, and learn of hidden abilities locked dormant within his being. So many surprises await all the strategists out there salivating at this announcement but it’s not over yet.
DLC will also be developed for Disgaea D2 to make sure you get an infinite amount of playtime which is the norm amongst the Disgaea games. NISA has also included a few gameplay revisions and additions to make sure that this Disgaea journey is one to write home about. These revisions and additions include the geo panel system, a more in depth character customization, the endless item world, and the master/pupil system. It looks like this Disgaea D2 is going to be the most massive adventure yet, and I for one cant wait!
