Disgaea Team’s Next Game Looks Like Z.H.P. With A Touch Of, Well, Disgaea

By Spencer . September 28, 2012 . 6:02pm


The God and Fate Revolution Paradox is the next title from the Disgaea team. While it doesn’t have a Laharl cameo yet, it has the spirit of Disgaea in it. Players can pick up and toss units plus there is a grid based world to move around in.


Most of the elements revealed so far remind me of Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman, a PSP roguelike with a customizable hero. Players can dress up Renya, the protagonist who runs into an angel, in various costumes. The God and Fate Revolution Paradox also resets your level when you leave a dungeon, but also has an overall level statistic. Dungeons in The God and Fate Revolution Paradox are randomly designed.




The God and Fate Revolution Paradox is in development for PlayStation 3.

  • Two games I love mashed together! This is gonna be awesome

  • Anime10121

    This game looks HOT!  I need to know when this thing releases!

  • pgover

    So character customization, lifting and throwing, Z.H.P level up system, randomized dungeons and angel party members to join you in dungeons? Words cannot express how excited i am for this. I salute you NIS, you mad geniuses.

  • Andres Pena

    SOOO awesome wish i had a ps3 lol

  • DesmaX

    Instant buy from me

  • Jrpgfanatic

    Wow, this looks great. Pleasantly surprised. Well who am I kidding, I’m not surprised, this IS the Disgaea team after all.

  • While I do love how the game looks, I’m not impressed by the character designs so far. ZHP’s heroic theme was simply awesome in all kinds of ways, I hope this theme will be at least half as fun.

  • drproton

    ZHP is my favorite game on the PSP.  I hope this will prove to be its successor.


    Already preordered.. but Dec 20th so far away still :(

  • Based on the roguelike Z.H.P. and random generated dungeons, it can’t be bad, right? I like the looks of this!

  • well. . . this is something

  • MrTyrant

    Me like, me buy.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Looks interesting.^_^ NIS America, i am waiting for you now.^_^

  • Party Members with ZHP gameplay….wanna see what cool things can be done with it.  Very excited

  • Welp, everyone has already pretty much expressed all my feelings on this below, so yay lol. =^_^=

  • AlteisenX


    And more s’s to infinity. <3

    • xXDGFXx

      Now find the limit of Yes with respect to N :O

  • hadjimurad

    moving closer to #1 on my want list…         i love the artwork! and the gameplay seems deep and fun.

  • Göran Isacson

    Those ARE some pretty neat gameplay-mix ups. Still not that sold on the character design, but if it’s as much fun as previous games I see no reason I wouldn’t fall in love with this one too.

  • And I really hate the level reset system in ZHP… =_=

    • That…you’ll have to blame to the person who created the original Mystery Dungeon game.
      Also, your Character Level < your Total Level. You can be a super-hard boss and STILL be Char Lvl 1….as long as your Total Level is high enough. That's not to say your Char Lvl doenst matter, especially if you need MORE boost to your already insane stats from your Total Levels…

      • But iirc there’s a cap on the original stats right? that means once you reach the cap, the total lvl is useless. That’s why I don’t like that system too much, now if only they remove that cap…

  • Barrylocke89

    Oh, so it’s similar to Z.H.P…I’m suddenly a lot more interested in this game.

  • Godmars

    Considering the art style have to wonder if the Disgaea crew do cameos whether they’ll have new designs or just look older. What that might mean to their own series.

  • komiko12

    It is almost a necessity to have the Laharl cameos for a Nippon Ichi game.

    • BadenBadenPrinny

       I’d say that’s more of Asagi’s role, but that works too :3

  • Yes! so glad to hear this.
    They put to much work in to Z.H.P, to not base any other game of the concept.

  • CirnoLakes

    Oh my God, that thumbnail. It’s gorgeous.

  • Learii

    another great game NISA

  • Asuna Ilano

    whoa, and here i was just hoping for a sequel to Z.H.P. but this works too.

  • My Vita needs this and Z.H.P.. The growing Vita library can only get better and better.

  • HassanJamal

    Looking great, it looks an overly cute disgaea. Hope they have some nice eye candy  enemies to it :)

  • Rather a ZHP sequel for the Vita…but w/e.
    I’m still kinda not sure about the Vita, but considering ZHP was one of THE biggest reasons I got my PSP…I might consider getting a Vita if this was also for it. So long as its trailer is as FABULOUS as ZHP’s.

    Can’t wait to hear how the English version has been censored.

    • Anime10121

       Really? NisA censors 1 game, that’s understandable as it has some suggestive material (though I still wish we could have gotten the same content) and now Nisa is going to censor all their future titles? Never mind Muigen Souls is only being published by Nippon Ichi and this game is being developed by Nippon Ichi.  This game is being made by the Disgaea team, and their games aren’t really pushing the Teen rating, let alone an M one, so why would you think any thing would be censored?

      • $3587643

         It’s not understandable. It can’t be justified. My trust is broken. Repairing it will be hard.

        Learn to take a joke, man. Your asspain is palpable.

        • Then make sure to indicate beforehand that you’re making a joke. Do you expect people to know what sort of tone you’re taking, after all the snarky one-liners you’ve been dropping?

  • Blesmi

    So it’s basically like a spiritual follow up to ZHP? Hell yes sign me up!

  • Demeanor

    Looks exactly like ZHP so far, system-wise. Sprites are lovely and great, but I need moar mechanics details to understand just how is this different from ZHP…
    Also, I hope the kami main has some Hi Ougis or something… every game should have them :P

  • This is one of those games that I wish would get a Vita version.

    • Dede Ogbe

      fingers crossed.

    • Safros9

      It’s NIS, a Vita version is to be expected… in a few years. But it’ll come. Just have patience.

      • British_Otaku

         And it will be the best version of the game without a doubt… >_>

  • Roberto Maselli

    I didn’t even dare to hope for a sequel to ZHP (well, spiritual successor)
    As always, NIS knows how to earn my money.
    I hope this game also gives the possibility to have special equipment sent to you while you are in a dungeon (I think it was the Space Police facility? Been a while since I last played).

  • Dylan Anantha

    Just finished ZHP a few days ago, I can’t wait for this!

  • OverlordZetta

    I’d be sold, but part of ZHP’s charm was the pick up and play part of it.

    Still I’ll be all over this.

  • Riseabovethesky

    I’m just glad it’s not Disgaea 5.
