Etna’s Long Lost Cousin? Nah, It’s Another Disgaea 4 Cameo Character

By Spencer . January 28, 2011 . 3:31pm

Every "Omega" tier spell in Disgaea 4 has an anime tie-up. In case you missed the crossover madness here’s a quick recap of who Nippon Ichi got so far:

 

That leaves Omega Cool. Astarotte Ygvar from Lotte no Omocha (Lotte’s Toy) shows up when you cast the powerful ice spell. Being a succubus, Astarotte naturally fits into the demonic Disgaea universe. She even looks a bit like Etna and Flonne mashed together.

Disgaea 4 comes out on February 24 in Japan. NIS America plans to release the game here this summer. While they haven’t said anything about the anime cameos, Z.H.P. retained all of the light novel additions.

    ZHP had cameos? Wow, I need to play it.

    Anyway, I always thought it was Omega Ice, anyway, I so can not wait for Disgaea 4. I hope it gets an ultimate premium edition in CONUS, and you know, I will be there on day 1 baby!!!! Day 1!!!

      Pockets as Big as a Black Hole. But be careful everyone or you could seal your faith.

      • Darkrise

        At this point I think he already did.

    • Testsubject909

      Personally, you should’ve played it for the ludicrous story and the gameplay. But that’s just me.

      There are cameos, but they’re late in.

  • Zero_Destiny

    “She even looks a bit like Etna and Flonne mashed together.” lol I thought the same exact thing too :) Also was I the only one to see “Lotte no Omocha” as Loto no Omocha and freaked out thinking Disgaea had a Dragon Quest Summon lol. That’s what I get for glancing I guess. :( One day, maybe one day they’ll be a Disgaea and Dragon Quest Cross-over.

    This is gonna be licensing hell for NIS America.

    • Locklear93

      Maybe, but I doubt it. As the original article noted, ZHP kept all of its cameos, and it had Holo and Index. NIS was well aware when they lined up cameos that Disgaea 4 was a game they’d be releasing stateside. They likely made sure things would work out from the beginning. (Unlike Jump Superstars, where each individual work has its own licensees in the USA, to the best of my knowledge, none of the named characters above has any game properties with US license holders, which probably simplifies things dramatically.)

  • Darkrise

    I don’t recommend Lotte no Omocha to anyone who hates ecchi so be warned. =P It also got greenlit for an anime this spring I think.

    • Testsubject909

      *looks around* …huh, okay. Guess I’ll be the one asking.

      What about those of us who DO like Ecchi?

      • Darkrise

        Then you’ll really like it. =P Comedy is great and the plot isn’t that bad, it’s actually kind of interesting.

  • goronyan

    Rotte no Omocha, one of non pr0n projects made by Haga Yui (葉賀ユイ) sensei, who’s also well known from BakaTest manga series, wich also there it’s own animation scheduled for the next season of this year by studio Diomedea(or it was Shaft?dunno >P) and Rotte’s voice will be dubbed by Rie Kugimiya (*´ω`).

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Definitely can see the little airhead from Baka in that girl.

    • tr1gun1212

      Sounds like a must-watch, thanks for the seiyuu information especially.

  • PrinceHeir

    Holo FTW :)

  • Code

    rar, Disgaea 4, I want it, I want it right now omo

    JUST MAKE LAHARL APPEAR AGAIN!!! Of course with Etna well Flonne will definetly appear.

    My only reason to play Disgaea 2 and 3 !!

    not to mention Laharl is always top one in NIS survey on there characters!!

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      Why wouldnt Laharl appear? I think the real concern is making Mao and or Almaz etc appear in game on disc non DLC characters, as well saw from D4, characters from D2 were not standard post game characters, lol.

    • skyblaze

      I’m 99.9% sure he’s in it… I just hope they bring Barbera Goodson back for his voice (it was so off in Prinny 2… what on earth happened up there NISA? ._.)

  • cmurph666

    Who?

  • KotaroInugami

    Funny. When I first read that manga, I thought she might have been a character made by Takehito Harada himself. I soon found out she wasn’t, so it’s cool she appears tho.

  • heartless141

    i never used mage classes in D3, but this is a must!

    wonder if the final moves of the other classes/weapons get cameo as well :D

  • Hetare Kaiser

    Kind of amusing considering that the artist of Lotte no Omocha, Haga Yui, has made Disgaea-themed doujin CG collections and doujinshi in the past.
