Laharl, Etna, Flonne and the rest of the gang of the first Disgaea title will be back on our Ps3 consoles sooner than anticipated: NISA America has revealed that North American players will be able to buy Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness on October 8th while European ones will enjoy it a few days before them, with the game releasing on September 27th.
NISA has also revealed that a rich special edition will be available together with the regular one, sold directly from the NISA Online Store: this special edition will include an artbook, two disc soundtrack, a strategy guide, two figures of Etna and Flonne and five art cards.
Disgaea D2 features gorgeous HD sprites, improved interface and menu system as well as all new gameplay features.
Together with some returning features from the original Disgaea like the Demon Assembly, D2 will also introduce a Dojo, allowing players to permanently power up their characters. Units can also be paired together with a master-apprentice relationship, allowing the apprentice to learn the skills of the master. Single and team attacks are still present, with the addition of another team attack type: characters will be able to piggy-back onto one another to unleash some special attacks. Mastering this new attack methods will be really important to conquer even the toughest maps.
