imageDisgaea Dimension 2 is a direct sequel to Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, but it’s not Disgaea 5. Think of it like a Final Fantasy X-2, but without dresspheres.


Dengeki PlayStation clarified that Disgaea 5 is also in development. Nippon Ichi Software would like to keep the Disgaea Dimension series going in the future too so we might find revisit Adell’s story or see Mao in college in the future.

Read more stories about & on Siliconera.

  • Interesting! I certainly would like a sequel game to Disgaea 3 actually– definitely my favorite of the series.

    • SLick123456789111

      Same here :)
      For the story & atmosphere alone.
      Want to see how all the main characters developed in a sequel.

  • “Disgaea Dimension 2 is a direct sequel to Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, but it’s not Disgaea 5. Think of it like a Final Fantasy X-2, but without dresspheres.”

    Awesome. I lol’d =^_^=

  • Perona

    No dresspheres, no buy.

    • topdog2007

       PFFT over lord larhal don’t need a dresspheres  HE RIDES A FUCKING COMMENT AND Laughs AT THE SAME TIME THAT HOW BAD ASS HE IS

    • DurableTomb

       What would Laharl do, don a shirt? … I’m not sure that the world is ready for that just yet.

      • topdog2007

         lawl larhal will never don a shirt he be like screw shirts D:<

  • That’s… REALLY COOL! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before, where a series has a spin-off consisting of direct sequels to the older games! Also, I am DYING to see a character redesign of Adell and Rozalin. I LOVE those two!

  • shion16

    A side story about the son of Almaz and Sapphire would be great.

    • Herok♞

      Almaz got together with Sapphire or did you mean Adell and Rozalin?

      • shion16

        my mistake
        thanks for telling me before i get trolled :P

  • Man I really whant them to continue Disgaea 2(my favorite in the series)

    I also wonder how disgaea 5 will go…(they’ve done a demon prince gone overlord, prinny Instructer, Student, and Demon hunter)

    • I want to see a story about Overlord Prier, continuing from the epilogue of LP: Ragnarok.

      • Sir, you just won the internet. I’m a big La Pucelle fan, and this idea is awesome

      •  Is it true that the story where Prier turned into overlord is the cannon??

        • DurableTomb

           Weeeellll, it’s a little complicated. You could take the separate Overlord Prier chapters in Ragnarok as canon, but then where did Croix go? OR you could take the “side mission” in the main chapters where Priere becomes an Overlord, but then gets left behind by Alouette and Culotte for “having become too obsessed with power”. What I would like to see is the Dimension series dredge up Priere with Dark Prince Croix as bonus allies (or perhaps, dare I say it, Father Salade). If the two paths divide enough, perhaps then, I could see what Kurtis’ wife and daughter looked like, and maybe he could free himself from the Prinny casing. One can dream.

    • Demeanor

      We need a girl protagonist. Think what they could do with THAT! XD

    • BadenBadenPrinny

       I’d want to see a Prinny overlord or have an Angel for a main character for once

  • Hoshi星

    Imagine if NIS decided to do yearly Disgaea… Our bodies wouldn’t be ready for all the grinding.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Only if there were faster ways to do gringing, that is.

  • MrRobbyM

    Okay NIS, you are my favorite right now.

  • topdog2007

    sweet  NIS   i want this game now than ever !

  • My brain exploded… *Tosses wallet full of change*
    Also is anyone having trouble with the site not loading all the way o.O 

    • MrRobbyM

      It’s been doing that on and off all day for me too.

      • Oh good! I thought was my computer or web browser haha~

  • Fidelis

    This is more than I can take
    There is no better feeling

    • DurableTomb

      Except for the day it is released over on your shores.

  • Raze

    Yes YESSS

    • xXDGFXx

      Tsundere Maou <3

  • This is the first time a boner actually ruined my zippers. 

    Thanks, NIS! 

  • Yeah! If they make dimension into a series I’m so happy! There will be more Laharl, Flonne and Etna AS the main characters!

  • FFmax

    Damn you Disgaea for taking shots at my wallet. Now I have to grind up to level 9999 again.

    • DurableTomb

      Then grab some Chopsticks and start hunting flies then friend.

  • Oh Nippon Icchi <3 Wuv you forever

  • OkamiKing

    Mao in college?!………… YES

    • DurableTomb

       Disgaea 3: The College Years. Where the only screech is the sound emitting from students in the cafeteria on a mystery meat Friday.

  • kool_cid414

    Am I the only one who would want to see how they’d handle dressphere?

    • DurableTomb


      1. Laharl uses dressphere, Laharl gains a shirt, universe then implodes.


      2. Etna uses dressphere, Etna gains pants, most of Nippon Ichi’s male demographic suffer from rage induced aneurisms.

      • kool_cid414

        Hey option one would be the ultimate attack that always hits for 9999 damage

        • komiko12

          What?! 9999 damage is extremely low in Disgaea standards.

          • kool_cid414

            It’s been a while forgive me especially Istill have yet to get a character past lvl1000 yet it’s still one of my goals.

          • kool_cid414

      • Locklear93

        You forgot option 3: Jennifer gets an even SKIMPIER outfit, and Laharl dies from seeing too much of her body–or from Etna or Flonne stabbing him after he comments that their bodies aren’t a problem.

  • I quite like the sound of these recent developments.

  • I guess it would be a good time to start getting into the franchise. Where should I start? ( Only have a ps3 and a crappy pc) . 

    • DurableTomb

       Then, at the moment, you are limited to Disgaea 4, which is not a bad thing by any means.

      • he can also play Disgaea 3.

        • DurableTomb

           Why would you settle for the PS3 version of D3, when you have the updated rerelease for Vita? If he tries 4 and wants to get further into the franchise,  he’ll probably want the definitive version.

          • yeah I know I’m just saying with what he has he could play 3 too.

            I’d personally start with 4 or 2 but thats just me.

          • DurableTomb

             Great minds think alike dear friend. Adell of the Hotblooded Fist and Valvatorez of the Unyielding Sardine for the win!

          • Nemesis_Dawn

            Because he doesn’t have a Vita? But he does have a PS3.

          • DurableTomb

            I bought a Vita JUST for D3:AoD. You like a franchise enough, then you gotta invest in it.

          • Nemesis_Dawn

            I have a Vita but I have D3 for the PS3 instead of it. Already bought it once and I prefer my JRPG’s on a big screen, every time.

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      Disagea 3 and 4 are both available on PS3 right now.

    • Tianyu Wei

       Disgaea 4 definitely…. it’s the best D4 in terms of production and refinement… You can see the best effort of a Disagaea in D4. D1 may be the “best” because it’s the origin of the series, but in terms of game play, and everything else pertaining to game-play D4 is definitely the most refined game of them all.

      • Pepper Padoga

        Yeah. I played all 4 of them. I think story wise Disgaea 1 was the best but in terms of gameplay and graphics, Disgaea 4 is the best. 

    • Locklear93

      I’d actually recommend Disgaea 2 for beginners, rather than 1 or 4.  I’m in a minority here, but I find its story and characters are the best.  More importantly, though, Disgaea 3 and 4 shifted a lot of emphasis to mana when they changed the extra gain system.  The detailed explanation of this is complicated, but the short version is that Disgaea 3 and 4 emphasize farming mana more than 1 or 2, which I don’t think is a good change for beginners.  (On the other hand, for people invested in the post-game, it IS a good change.)  Disgaea 4 also has, in my opinion, a real drop off in the quality of its story past a specific boss.

      Don’t get me wrong, I love every Disgaea game, including Disgaea Infinite–but I definitely feel there are pros and cons.  The only con I can come up with for Disgaea 2 is that it was a PS2/PSP game, so if your PS3 isn’t a model with PS2 backwards compatibility, you’re stuck.  (In which case, I recommend 4.)

  • Draparde

    I was wondering if this would be the only Dimension they’d make. i’m so glad it’s not. man. NIS, three games your making that i will be buying day one…and NISA will be making that 4 i’m sure with Atelier Aisha….  :D
