nis20thThe God and Fate Revolution Paradox and Special Report Division are two of Nippon Ichi Software’s 20th anniversary titles. The Disgaea developer teased a couple more announcements are coming in Dengeki PlayStation.


"Project Arcadia" is a side scrolling game with a princess. Then there’s "Project D" which is a title that will appeal to old and new fans. Could this be Disgaea 5? Souhei Niikawa confirmed they will develop Disgaea 5 at Anime Expo and asked fans to wait a bit for news.


Another interesting tidbit is Hayarigami, a PlayStation horror series where players have to either determine the cause of a strange event is supernatural or logical, will get a movie in the future.

    if its Disgaea 5 i will cry tears of joy
    but please bring also D4 for Vita :D i have already D4 but its so much more fun playing it on the go !

    • Eddie Dominguez

      tbh, i’m kind of tired of the disgaea franchise and its spinoffs.they need a srpg that is fresh and new both in characters and setting imho

      •  Yeah, they did say they wanted to focus on new franchises for a while, if I remember well.

        I mean, I love Disgaea 4, but I don’t think we need a new one for a while

    • cj_iwakura

      They’ve already confirmed its a new IP.

      • New IP eh? Well I am game for new IPs if they are good. Typically NIS doesn’t disappoint.

    • D4 Vita would be heavenly. But that won’t be out until 5 is out for a little bit.

  • Xerain

    The stressing of old an new fans leads me to believe it’s a Disgaea game of a different genre. kind of like how the made the Prinny games, except something new.

    Possibly even a retelling of the first game’s story in a radically different format + new stuff.

    • Eddie Dominguez

      ding ding ding! we have a winner here!

  • komiko12

    Makai Wars? So far off. LOL
    Maybe another “Makai” Game with Overlords and Netherworlds.

    • Eddie Dominguez

      yeah makai wars is the nukem dukem of nis or just vaporware at this point =/

  • Project D as in Project DOOD~!

    • Zonic505

      That would be awesome if Project D meant a Prinny 3.

  • Wafflenaut

    Here’s hoping for Disgaea 4 with the HD sprites for the Vita. Lord knows that the Vita needs all the games it can get, though I am happy Class of Heroes 2 is coming soon.

  • Vampiric

    project d is definitely disgaea 5

  • SirRichard

    You wait around for details on one NIS 20th Anniversary game and another two come along at once!

  • Maybe now the time to go Utube Disgaea vids. And I hope we can get Witch, Special RD, the God game etc…..Theycertainly sounds interesting.

  • amagidyne

    Makai Wars! Marl Kingdom! Soul Nomad!

  • Hayarigami sounds really good. I hope there is more info on it in the future.

  • I would prefer *takes a deep breath*

  • Anime10121

    NIS has me hyped beyond belief!  I cant wait for the Wednesday (Thursday in Japan) Press Conference to hit, so we can get info on all these new games announced in Dengeki!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Project D? DOOOD???^^

    Hell yeah here.^^ A new Prinny game would be great.^^ Especially here, i love more Prinny game compared to Disgaea itself lol.^^

    • Really? While the Prinny spin-off series is good the Disgaea series is just amazing. :P

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Well, I do love disgaea series however, I really love those 2d side scrolling which probably why I fall in love with the prinny series.

        And also, I think disgaea is emphasizing on grinding too much here however prinny here, is very fun as the extreme mode can be quite hard but still fun to play.^^

        • For the main story you don’t need to grind… not really. But I can see where you are coming from.

  • Interested to find out more on these games. Plus… wow… 4 20th Anniv games. All of them seem at least remotely interesting…

  • martin celeste

    “Project D” has got to be an HD revamp of Disgaea 1

  • BadenBadenPrinny

    Zettai Hero Project 2?

  • Göran Isacson

    Project Arcadia… a spin-off featuring Rozalin? Or just me reaching for straws? probably the latter.
