Ride em dood: Disgaea Dimension 2 has Prinnyback riding


Why walk when you can ride?

You guys! Disgaea Dimension 2 is doing something new with the monsters, and it easily tops any of the other monster systems from the previous games. Overlord Laharl is tired of walking to places, so he has given his monster vassals the honor of becoming his royal mounts. And in accordance to the Overlord himself, this new system will be referred to as the Prinnyback system (I'm nicknaming it Prinnyback riding). 

With Prinnyback riding put into place, players will be able to hop on top of Prinnies, dragons, and mothmen -- giddy up, dood. For now, these are the only monsters that are present in the screenshots below, so lets hope that Disgaea D2 gives us the option to ride into the heat of battle with every monster that's available in the game -- including Succubus and Nekomatas.

There's also a compatibly system that helps the riding character obtain stat boosts from the mount that they bond with. And to suit your quick grinding needs, characters paired up as Prinnyback riders will be able to share the experience points with their mounts. 

If the monster choices happen to be limited, I am still satisfied with having the chance to saddle it up with a Prinny or dragon. But at least we are getting some new team attacks done by characters and monsters -- they have a Nekohameha Wave! 

Oh man, all of this riding talk is making me want to partake in the ultimate comradeship between rider and steed. It may be awhile before we get to ride into the sunset, but my body has went through the proper requirements to overcome the long wait. So to everyone that's excited for Disgaea D2, are you all stoked about Prinnyback riding?
