First Look At Disgaea 3 Return And The Vita Game’s Two New Characters

By Spencer . August 10, 2011 . 10:23pm

Nippon Ichi is bringing Disgaea 3 back on the market with an expanded PlayStation Vita port. Disgaea 3 Return has four new scenarios and two brand new characters. According to this teaser trailer, the girl with a tail is named Ruchiru.



Other tweaks include tera class magic and better character animation during cutscenes. All of the downloadable content from the PlayStation 3 version is included in Disgaea 3 Return too. That means you’ll have 20+ extra characters, 40+ music tracks, item world command attack, class world command attack, item world survival attack, trophies, extra save icons, and the Raspberyl chapters.


Disgaea 3 Return will be a PlayStation Vita launch title in Japan. NIS America have not announced the game… yet.

  • that’s awesome! i’m looking foward into this ;D

  • I am. Surprised! I would have totally bet on a certain vampire and prinny girl being the new characters for this, but for them to make completely new characters? This is interesting indeed!

    I’m liking the tweaks made, but I especially like the fact that ALL of the DLC is built in. I think I’ll wait for the Vita release to experience Raspberyl’s chapters, in this case.

    • xXDGFXx

      don’t care much about vampire, want prinny girl. the new characters are so cute X3

      • I just really figured they’d be doing them. As two of the main characters of Disgaea 4, it’s not like it’s unusual to have future games appear as cameos in older rereleases. (Adell and Rozalin were in Afternoon of Darkness/DS, Mao, Almaz, Sapphire, Raspberyl, and Champloo were in Dark Hero Days)

        It strikes me as surprising that they /wouldn’t/ have Disgaea 4 cameos in this.

  • KyoyaHibari

    I may consider it, I’m hoping that it can use my PS3 save if possible and the new scenarios and characters are extra so I can easily continue on from there.

  • Juho Vuolo

    I guess this means another wad of money for NIS from me. Gotta love including all the PS3 DLC and new content.

  • Hours

    I’m pretty excited about this version since I haven’t got to D3 yet.

  • pgover

    Ok, even if i have to buy the game well before i actually own the console, i will own this game. Entirely new characters, new scenarios AND all of the DLC bundled into the game? NIS just knows how to take my money from me.

  • Code

    rar, ohh I like the new cat-girl she looks neat >wO>’

    • xXDGFXx

      games lack horn-y girls >:3
      need more! they’re cute X3

  • interestin ill be getting a VITA soon than

  • Jeez, I have Disgaea 3 on my PS3 and 300 hours clocked in…..and yet you’re making me want to buy Disgaea 3 again on the PS Vita! 

    Nippon Ichi, how do you do it!

    • its a passive skill they have

      • Yu_TheKing

        No, It’s their Evility.

    • dragoon_slayer12

      No, because it’s portable, they expect you to give them your life. That’s why the series is going portable XD. I don’t mind.

  • Well….damn.

    Now I want this. Curse you NIS for making awesomeness with games and deals.

  • Is it just me or does it seem like they’re using the moving portraits from Disgaea 4? I swear I saw Ruchiru blink. Anyway, I’m already excited for this.

    • xXDGFXx

      they all moved, even Mao is moving when he begins to lift his arm.

  • MAN this is gonna be awesome.

  • Ben Tan

    damn, day one!

  • elsalvadorps

    What…why is my pocket empty?

    • dragoon_slayer12

      Good thing you have time to fill them then XD.

      Oh, I get it. ;-)

  • Advent_Andaryu

    Day one buy for me, if NIS brings it to the US (and oh they will) they just sold a Vita.

  • Draparde

    Ruchiru looks interesting. well so does the horned girl. i wonder what connections they have to the main cast. :o and if they are apart of the four new scenario’s…and if both are apart of one..or if they each have one of their own.

  • dang, I bought most of that stuff already o 3o

    oh well, maybe when I get a PSV, I’ll give it a rent

    ha, just kidding, I’ll most likely buy it~

  • @Draparde whaddya mean?

    like a couple?~

  • Guest

    Hm, I haven’t bought Disgaea 3 yet, so if this is the “complete” version I’ll probably get it for the Vita instead.

    • Yu_TheKing

      Same here. I’ll focus on getting Disgaea 4 and then get Disgaea 3 Return. And you won’t have to spend money on all the DLC.

  • Oni123

    Sooo Disgaea4 for PSVita2 then =D?

  • Salvatore! Nice, D4 this year and D3R next year, this is an exciting time to be a Disgaea fan.

  • MCoelho

    My Vita will be filled with Disgaea, since i can re-download Disgaea 1 and 2.
    Hope i can pass all my saves too.

  • dragoon_slayer12


  • Göran Isacson

    Disgaea 3 for the Vita. That sound I just heard was my buddy desiring something so much he desired a hole into the time-space continuum and bought a Vita before it even exists- he’s CRAZY about Disgaea.

    On the one hand, I could be glad because this means I can mooch of HIS Vita and play Gravity and Dragon’s Crown! On the other hand… it’s DISGAEA. I’m lucky if I’ll get to borrow it five months after it releases.

  • SeventhEvening

    Well, I’m glad I didn’t end up buying the overpriced DLC. I’m looking forward to picking this up.

  • MarkMario

    More Disgaea is always good.

  • AnimeRemix

    I never played a Disgaea game in my life, but I think I’ll stick to buying #3 and #4 on PS3… I doubt I will actually care for dlc. =/

  • Sal

    Hurray! 4 new scenarios!

    if the 1st scenario is Rasberyl and the second is the new girls.

    I hope we get Overlord Almaz scenario and Super Hero Aurum’s backstory as a scenario!

    • I just want ANY Almaz storyline!

  • xflame10

    by new scenario, you mean stuff like etna mode or another marona right?

  • Kitestwinblades

    Hell Yes! Day 1!
    Alright Nippon Ichi, Disgaea 3 has 50 bucks worth of DLC on the PS3. Think you can work something out? Put maybe at least… half(or more) of the characters you can download in this version? Its bad enough we’re gonna have to re-download stuff for Disgaea 4 (Those new sprites are worth it in my book, though). How about letting that 3G work with a little online play inspired by 4?

    Finally, i’m not really feeling those new characters. Maybe its the eyes? The blonde is close but somethings not quite right…  Modern Anime fashion perhaps?

  • that’s strange… after i stopped watching the trailer, i noticed i had my wallet in my hand….

    • gustave154

      Me too…

  • the dlc is already in this version of the game, no need to dl them again my friend :D

  • Raharu95

    I know there is gonna be DLC for this game, even if all the original DLC are inisde it already. So maybe we will see the High Def Sprites for the game in the future. One can Dream ^_^

  • Ben Tan

    this game should get “transfarring” and will be a number one hit
