The next game from the Disgaea team has nothing to do with Disgaea. Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman is a new series from Nippon Ichi that begins with a… car accident. The undefeated Absolute Victory Unlosing Ranger gets hit by a car and a meek passerby dons his heroic costume to defeat Darkdeath Evilman.
Here’s how the ESRB describes Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman.
In this strategy role-playing game, players take control of a young hero trying to save the world from an evil villain. Players view the action from a top-down perspective, as their small hero interacts with characters and engages in brief battles with monsters. Battle sequences include punching sound effects and enemies that blink or disappear when defeated.
During the course of the game, characters sometimes engage in suggestive dialogue; for example, "If only my breasts were as pitiful as hers," "[Y]ou got the equipment made for men dangling between your legs," and "Uh . . . Besides bruise her uterus? Not much." The game also contains some references to alcohol; for example, "I serve alcohol so I’ll always check your ID at the door ," "My biggest treasure is my huge bottle of booze" and "I got drunk." Language such as "b*tching," "a*s," and "t*ts" appear in the dialogue.
Alcohol and boob jokes? That sounds like a game made by the Disgaea team to me. NIS America set October 26 as the release date for Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman. It’ll be released on PlayStation Network and in stores on a UMD.
