Did you pick up your copy of Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice this week? If you did you can look forward to adding Yukimaru and Tink from Disgaea 2 and Prier from La Pucelle Tactics into Mao’s army via future microtransactions. Nippon Ichi just added these characters as downloadable content on the PlayStation Store in Japan. Each one costs 200 yen ($1.50). After glancing through the screenshots it looks like Tink can utilize the magichange system and transform into a weapon.
Update: Here's a little more information on what the new characters do.
Prier has a "gathering attack" that increase damage by 10% for every enemy in the target area.
Yukimaru can use copycat ninjutsu to copy the abilities from the first enemy defeated in battle.
Tink's Eros Change adds a 10% boost if he changes into a weapon for a female user.
In case you’re curious here is a list of the downloadable characters in Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice available to Japan thus far.
