Nippon Ichi Software have announced a new Disgaea game for release next year at stage event in Japan today: Disgaea Dimension 2, slated for release on the PlayStation 3 on March 20th, 2013.


This is actually “Project D,” NIS’ mystery 20th anniversary title that they teased earlier in the year. Further details will be announced at a later point, and the game’s teaser website will go live in 12 days.


A bag of cookies for Luna Kazemaru for the heads up!

    Disgaea 1 remake possibly? Holy crap, dood.

    • burnfist23

       Nope. See the new characters and Laharl’s pants? This is a sequel!

      • How did you notice the pants?lol

        • burnfist23

           How can you NOT notice the pants? He’s been wearing shorts for years so any addition to his pant legs is pretty damn noticeable.

          Plus, I saw the Summer Greeting Cards that teased the game.

          • With everything going on in that picture his pants kinda just blended in.

            and I was trying to figure out who the girl with purple hair was.

          • kaizerlith

            Does anyone notice the short haired girl on the right of the pic in angel flonne’s clothes?

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Oh snaps, this is awesome.

  • Wafflenaut

    Sounds interesting. Never seen that purple haired girl before or of a Disgaea Dimension 1.

  • komiko12

    A retelling of Disgaea 1 with the modern Disgaea mechanics with updated graphics and units?

    or a Disgaea story set in an alternate Dimension/Netherworld ?

    I am spotting new units/characters.. and Flonne is still a Fallen Angel here.

  • Could this be the game where Laharel makes his grand return as the Main character!?

    • heartless141

       he will complain about not having enough screen time anyway

      • Raze

        No no…
        The first thing he will complain is…
        “Who the hell change my pant in this game??”
        And Etna who will laugh over it…

        • heartless141

          and flonne will be all like

    •  I would love for Laharl to “start” as the MC only to be overthrown by Asagi switching their roles and having Laharl and Asagi react to this scenario :)

      But yes, Laharl as the MC will be glorius as well.

  • Raze

    Laharl as MC again??
    Yes pleaseeee….

  • KyoyaHibari

    Words can not express my joy…

  • heartless141

    he… got… a…


    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      Ooh I didn’t even notice that. Etna is also wearing tiny tiny shorts now too. Nice changes.

    • MrRobbyM

      I miss the short shorts…ahem.

      • Derek E Nay

         Those shorts makes me wish I was gay… I am going to miss them.

  • I am so excited for this.

    Literally the amount of excitement around me is going to form into a physical aura. I can’t wait until November to hear more about this!!

  • $24431191

    Best news I’ve heard all day.

  • Dimension 2? As in 2D?

    I hope it’s a Metroidvania…Though “Hell Yeah” was pretty much Zombie Rabbit Laharl, the MetroidVania…

  • tyrantflughude

    This must not be part of the main disgaea games because flonne is is not in her angle clothes because remember in D4 she became an angle again.

    • Manny Being Manny

      To me, it seems like a direct sequel to Disgaea 1. Nippon Ichi has been hyping Project D for a while as their 20th Anniversary Project, so I’d think they’d want it to be BIG. And a direct sequel to their biggest hit would fit the bill.

    • heartless141

       she’s acute nonetheless.

      sorry i just have to xD

      and damn spoiler :( i haven’t have the chance to play D4. my fault i suppose

      • Tenno Seremel

        It’s not that you get any explanation in D4, though. She got there before D4. Possibly after Disgaea Infinite.

        • heartless141

           ah i see, thanks.

  • pgover

    Oh man, a new game starring the original Disgaea Trio? My hype is just soaring through the roof. I can’t wait to hear more about it!

  • Interesting… I’ll definitely be watching this game.

  • Muffum

    A Disgaea fighting game, maybe?!

    …Hey, a man can dream.

    • Actually that’d be a pretty good idea.

    • xavier axol

      a fighting game cross over with persona you’re saying!!!!! well i would love to!!.

  • Tien Ron

    i think this is a squeal to disgaea one that jumps to four, cause i’m
    seeing another angel there maybe to come and collect flonne  

  • wakeing up to this kinda just  made me a happy man  ‘.

  • Cephrien

    Oh god. What if this is like– some kind of.. FIGHTING GAME? .. -looks at Arc System Works- A__A

    • Dude. I really was thinking of writing about a Disgaea fighting game in NISA forum but … but *manly tears* can this really be true? I really wished to play a Disgaea 2D fighting game .. I mean it can HAPPEN! No, it’s probably happening right now. I… I..I..I’m speechless.

      Can’t wait for more news!

  • DOOD….

  • Astraye
  • Ladius

    It’s apparently a full-fledged sequel to the first Disgaea game, and that is as awesome as it sounds. NIS is outdoing itself with its 2013 lineup.

  • SirRichard

    A direct sequel to the first game starring the same lot is basically what I’ve wanted from the series for a while now, I seriously hope that’s what they’re doing.

  • riceisnice

    I expect ridiculous amounts of content featuring the best from all 4 Disgaea game and a freaky load of cameo appearances.

    • leadintea

      Not to mention a crapload of DLC :/

      • MrRobbyM

        The best thing about the older Disgaea games was the plethora of unlockable characters :/

        • Draparde

          but. as far as i can tell/remember, they’ve all had the same (cept 4, having 8 as opposed to 9 non-DLC unlockables, and 1 only having 2.)

  • The original had the best characters by a mile. Glad to see them return proper

  • This sounds like a retelling or alternate canon title but more Laharl’s side of the series is good thing.

  • Is there a Disgaea D1?
    Somehow the naming reminds me of crossover games.
    Perhaps a story where all the Disgaea leads participate in?

    • Manny Being Manny

      Theres no Disgaea Dimension 1… which is the main reason many people (including myself) feel this is a direct sequel. They can’t name it Disgaea 2, so they would add another word in there to differentiate it from Disgaea 2.

      Also, I doubt its a crossover. The teaser site just shows silhouettes of the main trio. It seems to be focusing on them.

  • Fidelis

    The only thing curbing my excitement is my confusion..

    Flonne is a fallen angel again?

    But who cares

    Here’s hoping to see guys who haven’t made any appearances besides quick allusions since the first like Hoggmeiser, Maderas, and Lamington.

  • Demeanor

    Make it a disgaea sequel, a classic RPG with disgaea setting, an action game, a 1-vs-1 fighter, I’d be happy with ANYTHING :D

    • Manny Being Manny

      >Disgaea D2 is a sequel to Laharl’s story.

      Great, its confirmed then? I am so freaking hyped for this now.

    • Fidelis

      Oh boy oh boy oh boy ohhhh boy

      As a college student now..I’ve been waiting for Laharl to be the main character again since 7th grade

      Ooooooooooh boy

  • Ayaka

     My heart is crying tears of joy after reading this.

  • IshimaruKaito

    i love disgaea sooo much and i dont even kno why?

  • Setsuna ♥

    I hope I wasn’t the only one who thought of Initial D when I saw “Project D”

  • Isaac Newton

    The REAL Disgaea 2 LOL!!

  • I miss the female gunner

  • konsama

    Laharl as MC again? Hell yes!

  • It should be noted that this is actually a reboot of Disgaea 1! CANNOT WAIT!

    • zweii

      That is not proof. Its their translation from the famitsu article. Everyone else interpreted it a D1 sequel.

    • SetzerGabbiani

      I pretty much suspected this.  It will probably be Disgaea 1.5 with Disgaea 4 hi res sprites and every improvement they’ve made up to this point.  It would be fun to see them poke fun at how far they’ve come since the first game on PS2.

  • Nitraion

    Laharl you buy a new pants? XD

  • MrRobbyM

    Oh god my hype meter is going crazy.

  • riceisnice

    I hope those aren’t all the generic classes. I don’t see professor, heavy knight, Cyborg, Majin, or female gunner.

  • I spot a few new generics (or maybe they’re actual characters)

    Purple haired girl above Laharl
    Blonde girl below Laharl
    and another gal behind Flonne with hair covering her eyes

  • Mister_Nep

    With a name like Dimensions I’m hoping this is a crossover game with the other games in the series. I’d love to see the main characters of each game come together for a game, and do…..well whatever demons, vampires, werewolves, angels, midbosses, and humans can all mutually agree to do.

    • Locklear93

      …but every game in the series does that to a lesser or greater extent!

      • Mister_Nep

        I meant a full-fledged game. Not a cameo where they get a scene, and then become a playable character. I want an actual adventure with all of them together.

  • Mnstrzero00

    Another Jesus-tier 2013 release?! Arghh! 2012 is such a waste of time! If only hibernation was an option.

  • Locklear93

    This wouldn’t have been my first choice; I’ve always greatly preferred Adell and Rozalin over Laharl/Etna/Flonne.  That said, new Disgaea is new Disgaea, and I’ll end up buying more than one copy, unquestionably.

    Edit: It’s also the right choice for NIS as a company, unquestionably; Laharl and co. have always been the most popular characters, and Disgaea 1 is the most popular game.

  • Yuriangels

    I want to ask, are they going to do this with there Spin~off too or just the Disgaea main series ?

  • Wondering_Zero

    Looks like a direct sequel to the first Disgaea. Which is fine and dandy, but I never particularly liked the Disagea 1 cast of characters. Yea, Etna was cool and Flonne was fun, but everyone else was just meh…Laharl especially rubbed me the wrong way for some reason..

    I’ll be picking it up regardless though since I love the Disgaea games. Oh, and I’ve spotted at least 4 new character classes in that picture. The blonde guy right under Laharl, the purple haired girl above Laharl, right under the gunner and cleric is a blonde girl with her bangs covering her eyes, to the right of the red mage looks like a female angel since she’s wearing Flonne’s angel in training clothes. Though, they could be brand new main characters instead of generics.

    • topdog2007

       that over lord larahl to you bud !
      and larahl is aswome one of the best disgaea charters in the universes but i got a spot light for grand over lord zetta HAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      I think I’m alone in preferring Disgaea 2’s cast over all the other games in the series.

  • I’m wondering if it’ll share the same tone as the first one. While I like D2-4, I do sort of feel like they are more like Makai/Phantom Kingdom, rather than sequels to Disgaea.

    • Ladius

      I agree with you regarding Disgaea 2, but 3 and especially 4 are in line with 1’s themes and general atmosphere.

  • Raharu95

    Oh yes. I… Devils Yes! I been asking for this since forever. Just the premise guarantees a buy for me.

  • Emma Hill

    Oh yes. YES!

    Laharl is the lead once again!  Get in there! Can’t wait for this! Eeeeeep~~~~! ^3^~<3

  • Andres Pena

    so thats how laharl’s shorts look like unfolded oh and his braclets are gone too and i see that a new angel trainee is showing up am sooo looking forward too this <3

  • Code

    rar, awesome > A w <~!! The original is one of my all-time favorite games, so this is definitely already in my most wanted upcoming games o w o;; Also like what they did with Laharl's costume, although not as crazy about Etna's u 3 u;;

  • Ravage27

    2013 is going to be awesome :)

  • AceWildCard


  • My life is made…I could go on typing, but let this suffice: my life is made.

  • OverlordZetta

    Eh. We’ve had enough Laharl and pals in other games to spawn at least two sequels. Call me they make Disgaea 6.

    • topdog2007

      then your not a true fan of the disgaea games

      • OverlordZetta

        Sure I am. I enjoy the gameplay, and their writing (for the most part), and most things Nippon Ichi does, but I’ve been dreading this for a long time.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething
  • VisualData

    This was a wise decision on NIS part. The other Disgaea “sequels” never really measured up to the caliber of Hour of Darkness cast, characters and story.

    •  …BULL, as much as i like the 1st game still BULL

    • Tianyu Wei

       I personally think D4 gave D1 a tough match… D4 was clearly much more refined in almost every way than D1, graphic, story telling, dialogue, etc. I played all 4 Disgaea in Japanese btw, so I am not sure if that growth in “maturity” in the series was properly translated.

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      Very much disagree. I’d say 1 is probably my least favorite of the series.

  • If the skulls don’t wear hoods and yell “Mommy!” anymore, I’ll be very disappointed. (Really.)
