Magic mushrooms… in Disgaea 4? Watch what happens when Emizel throws one at Desco.

Just like Super Mario Bros. she turns into a giant!


Disgaea 4 also has crates to toss around for players to create a staircase.

If you’re out of Prinnies, you can grab bombs on some stages and lob them at enemies. Be careful, bombs hurt friends and foes alike plus they can trigger a Prinny chain explosion.

Players can also pick up tombstones, but after you lift one a zombie may appear.

  • NipponjiRurouniJSRF

    NIS really knows how to make a game with depth, I can’t wait to play this

  • :D that is AWESOME!

    i wounder what else might be in the game!

  • Sal

    Hmm, I wonder if the mushroom only works on monsters?

  • Methylene

    Why am I suddenly predicting a large amount of mushrooms getting tossed at Succubi and KitKats?

  • The more I hear about this game, the more I feel like the wait to Summer is painful enough.

    I’m glad at least that this game is getting a pretty steady trickle of information about it’s mechanics and features. It gives one enough to think about and speculate over before it arrives, and gives a drive to dive into it once one has it. Just as long as they avoid too many story details, the feeling will be fresh and well-worth the wait.

    • The wait to summer gives us plenty of time to run through fantastic games so the slate can totally be clear and this game can get the full attention it deserves. I know one thing, I will probably be hooked on this game for 2-3 months and wont touch another game at all.I may even try to platinum it before playing other games…lol. Its gonna be epic!

      • this game for 2-3 months and wont touch another game at all.I may even try to platinum it

      • I guess– I still have Makai Kingdom, ZHP, and Atelier Rorona to finish off out of my NISAmerica-owned games. And even then, I need to get Neptunia!

        And yet, I still want Disgaea 4 right now.

      I find myself incapable of waiting. I can’t read a bit of Japanese, but I’ve got a first run collector’s edition pre-ordered at Amiami. I’ll do like I always do with imports, and figure out menus through trial and error, then get to enjoy the plot and humor later, come summer.

  • Ram

    I’m a bit more curious about Fuuka’s class being “Prinny?”. Wonder what’s her story.

    • Darkrise

      She’s a soul that didn’t get fully transformed into a prinny apparently.

      • jello44

        I was hoping she was going to be some insane Prinny fangirl.

        • Testsubject909

          There’s already tons of those in real life.

          • do i smell a yandere prinny thread? :D

      • Aren’t Prinnies criminal souls that transformed into blue exploding penguins to live a life in slavery? Then Fuuka was some awesome criminal girl?? :D

  • Code

    haha nice, maan being able to use characters to make staircases, in older Disgaea games would have been such a time saver >w< Nippon Ichi is making some really smart and creative moves with this one!

  • Darkrise

    All the more reason to Day 1 this!

  • Disgaea 3 let me down, but this one looks really really awesome. Looking forward to it.

  • Super Mario galaxy 2 is a great game but i feel like i should start on hardcore games. I need help deciding?

  • HarryHodd

    Ms. Prinny looks so cute holding a bomb over her head.

  • Souji Tendou

    I still remembers the day when I spent 1000+ hours in Disgaea (1), and then it got deleted by those stupid AR Max device. Nearly kills someone back then.

  • ninetailes4life

    Well my summer vaycay just got even more fun

  • Maybe it’s just me but I think the 2D sprites look more detailed than in the previous games.

    • Naturally, because they are! The past games had normal sprites, these here are awesome lovely HD sprites of love~

  • Day one.
