What Disgaea 4 Picked Up From Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger Vs. Darkdeath Evilman

By Spencer . January 20, 2011 . 1:23am


Before delving into Disgaea 4 the Disgaea team made a PSP dungeon crawler called Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman. Aside from wearable Prinny parts, Z.H.P. takes place in its own underdog universe.


While we haven’t seen any Unlosing Ranger cameos (yet?), the Disgaea team took the base building feature from the PSP game and brought it into Disgaea 4.

You can move and arrange shops, perhaps in a nice little shopping district, plus decorate your base. Disgaea 4 lets players place objects and characters everywhere to create the school, cemetery or Prinny amusement park of your dreams.

For reference, here’s what a basic base looks like.

    Yes! This was a fun feature in ZHP. Depending on how you were playing or what you were looking for it was very useful.

    I kinda wish they brought out a ZHP ps3 game instead of D4 – but dont get me wrong ill be getting D4 anyway

    Very nice. This is giving me another reason to still keep coming back to the Disgaea series.

    Can I divorce my wife, marry my daughter to become my wife and make my ex-wife my daughter?

    OH goodie, that means I should get through ZHP Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman before the phenomenally epic Disgaea 4 comes out. Ive had the game since release date but not even booted it up.

      Bad, bad TS! You’re missing the roguelike that made roguelikes fun (for me, anyway)! It’s a great game, I totally recommend playing it. =D

    I cannot imagine how much time I would spend playing disgaea 4 when it comes out. It seem there are so many interesting thing to do. Go NIS!!

    Looks really awesome, I love to create my own areas, even if it’s just the base and it seems there is a great variety of objects to use. :D

  • Pichi

    It’ll be nice to have a cameo for like say, how to sure this feature and such.

  • PrinceHeir

  • HarryHodd

    It is going to be so nice to play a Disgaea game with nice graphics. Screens look great.

    Awesome feature, this is why D4 is one of my most anticipated games of 2011. It would be cool if players could visit each other’s bases.

      Dude, Alexander speaks the truth!!! Definitely one of my most anticipated phenomenally epically awesome games of 2011, hands down. Day 1 Baby, Day 1!!!!!!

        I like you, Tsuna. Day 1 indeed.

    Sexy base is sexy

    That sound more like Makai Kingdom.

    Phantom Brave had the ability to move shops and characters (the shops were NPCs) around the home base and that game first came out on the PS2…

  • Goat

    Looking forward to this. The last pic reminds me of Makai Kingdom more than ZHP though.
