Oh Nippon Ichi, it was foolish of me to be worried about your true sequel to the first Disgaea. So what won me over this time? Simple, NIS's style is something that I have adored from them since the moment that I laid eyes upon Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. From the monsters, to the setting and gameplay, Disgaea D2 is bringing back some of the elements that were missing in Disgaea 2, 3, and 4. One thing that makes this cake delicious is that we are getting some of the gameplay improvements featured in the previous games, along with a nice remix of the main theme that plays in Laharl's castle.
I find it rather ironic that we are getting a character that claims to be Laharl's sister, since the Disgaea anime had an episode with a similar theme. Hopefully, Laharl's new quote on quote sister will deliver a better scenario with her role in the story. From the way how she was presented, Sicily will probably be the mid boss character for Disgaea D2, except that she has her own two cronies.
In case your memory is a bit fuzzy, Disgaea D2 will make hell tremble in Japan on March 20th, 2013. But considering NIS's GLORIO track record, I doubt that fans in the west will miss out on the latest game that features the main Disgaea trio.
