Singapore has first access to an Item World Command Attack upgrade which inserts a Scorekeeper in the hub world and an online ranking mode into Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice. Players can compete in the Item World Command Attack challenge, which isn’t a direct battle of might. This event counts every move you make and measures your efficiency at completing the item world.
You can select one of three difficulty levels: beginner, intermediate, or advanced then enter a special version of the item world. This world does not have automatically accessible gates to the next floor. Randomly placed exits would defeat the purpose since blind luck could put a gate right next to one player and far away for another. You must meet specific requirements to make a gate appear and all gates are under control of an enemy gate keeper. Alternatively, you can just beat every enemy instead of dashing to the gate. Once ten floors are completed you get an assessment and a ranking.
Players that get a high score in the Item World Command Attack challenge get to use the Angel Soldier, an additional character, as a reward. Angel Soldiers are proficient with bows and staffs. Their native evilty is Angelic Protection and it reduces non-elemental damage to a nearby ally by half. This class can also learn spells like heal, fire, ice, and wind.
The patch costs $6.19 SGD ($4.30) in Singapore. Solo cameo characters are sold for around $2.49 SGD ($1.75 ) in the region. NIS America has not announced if they will release this patch in North America, but chances are we’ll see it soon.
