Disgaea Dimension 2 Character Teased, Might Have Monster Mounts

By Spencer . October 24, 2012 . 1:02am

More info about Disgaea Dimension 2 comes from Dengeki PlayStation. Disgaea Dimension 2 takes place several years after the events in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. The game will have new characters and the magazine teases one of them is Laharl’s ?????. This new character is standing next to Flonne in the package art. Find her in the center and look at the bottom right. I’m guessing it’s the girl in blue and white without the bow.

Disgaea Dimension 2 will take the best features from Disgaea 1 and Disgaea 4 plus add in brand new elements. One of these might be monster mounts, which have been rumored in online forums. Disgaea Dimension 2′s balance will be closer to Disgaea 1.

 

Disgaea Dimension 2 is slated for release on March 20 in Japan.

    “Monster Mounts”… “MONSTER MOUNTS”… Has NIS been given the “Best SRPG of All Time” award yet? I feel they’re coming very close to earning it.

  • DurableTomb

    Monster Mounts, huh? *Stares at first image* Monster Mounts…., huh? *Stares at second image* ……… I’m sorry, what was I talking about again? Say, on a completely random and unrelated topic, has uh, has Overlord Prier always been a Monster class ally? Just, uh, curious is all…

  • Klaus00

    This is why I love NIS also..
    would be cool if Krichevskoy and Seraphim returns in this game (needs a badass new playable character) :D

  • chroma816

    D2 sounds better with every new bit of news. I can’t tell if any of those new characters in the pic are classes or actual characters, however.

    I’m not so sure about going back near Disgaea’s balance, however. Not sure how it’d work with D4′s system. 

    Also, monster mounts? Sounds pretty damn cool. Succubi mounts…Nekomata mounts…Explosive prinny mounts…

    I just hope they stay with the D4 designs for monsters/classes – I prefer those Succubi rather than the D1 ones.

  • Herok♞

    So its a direct sequel that takes place several years after D1 so that means D2 already happened so where will it pick up in the plot since several years means at least after D2.

  • HassanJamal

    Monster mounting? Hehehehe. This game sounds so potentially amazing!

  • SirRichard

    I really liked having chocobo mounts in FFT, monsters could be used as a great way of increasing mobility on the field and for opening up other attack options.

    Honestly, as long it’s Disgaea at heart (and it’s looking that), I’m there, but experimentation is always nice.

    • GibbRS

      I dunno.  Mobility isn’t much of an issue in Disgaea games, since you can get to the edge of the level on the first turn, easily.  I actually don’t use monster classes nearly as much as I should, and I hardly ever use Magichange, so I’m not sure I’d get much use out of monster mounts either.

      • SirRichard

        Yeah, but that’s what I’m driving at: mounts give monsters a reason to be used and will probably have to make them reconsider map layouts and other gameplay features, if they’re even happening. If nothing else, it’d be a neat little thing.

    A Magic Knight riding on her Succubus steed

    well. . . that’ll be something

  • Kitestwinblades

    I have a feeling the first trailer is going to blow our minds!
    Its already big news that this is a sequel! :3

  • Xerain

    That girl in blue and white looks to be an angel trainee. Her hair style should also look quite familiar to anyone who remembers that one translucent character from the true ending.

    Larhal’s ????…oh the teasing its soo gewd

  • Ayaka

    Oh God do not tease me like that.

    This is terrible. The mastermind behind all this wants me dead by the end of the week. Sequel to first Disgaea, Disgaea 5 currently on-progress, give me something else like a new plushie set for a very rich bundle and I’m ready for the hospital.

    • DurableTomb

       I’d rather have posable Figma figures of Adell, Etna, and Cyborg Kurtis.

  • Yuriangels

     No more! my body can’t take much more. Just stop!

    • Kitestwinblades

      Its like laharl’s reaction to sexy bodies all over again XD

  • riceisnice

    Disgaea Dimensions 2′s balance will be closer to Disgaea 1? But Disgaea 1 was horribly unbalanced.

  • komiko12

    Bring back Marjoly!!!

    • Manuel Jimenez

      I’m pretty sure they just mean balance of D1 to D4, its more like D1 instead.

      • komiko12

        I meant that Marjoly should also be playable here.

  • Marik78

    Hm… May it be Laharl’s daughter ?

  • Tianyu Wei

    Monster Mounting I think they are talking about is magichange… where you can use the monster as weapons or combine them then use them as a huge weapon…

    • SLick123456789111

      Imagine riding a Prinny or a Wood Golem.
      (or a Succubus)

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Tohsaka

    Makes me wonder how OP those Monster tamer classes are going to be this go round…

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Hopefulla NISA times it where we can get this and D5 at like the same year. I wouldnt mind seeing the series go annual since jrpgs seem to be a dime in a dozen and limited to like two releases per year in the states now.

  • Demeanor

    I vote for “Laharl’s little sister”.
    Imagine if she wanted to be an angel trainee but is really a wicked demon at heart XD

    • Andres Pena

      it might be one of laharl’s cousins from the novel 

  • Raharu95

    They better bring back the holy dragons if hey are doing monster mounts. that is a must!

  • Andres Pena

    what if its laharl’s mom reincarnated or someone related to laharl’s mom training to be an angel trainee

  • Andres Pena

    what if its laharl’s mom reincarnated or someone related to laharl’s mom training to be an angel trainee

  • http://twitter.com/ChaWork Cha Thada

    Why is everyone going towards a family member why can’t it be like laharl’s old pet angel or laharl’s fiancee.., just pointing it out. it’s the netherworld literally could be anything. and I’m hoping for something cheesy.

  • eliel

    i wonder if they will bring back the scout from part 1? i thought it was a cool class i loved to summon the turret :D

    • Emma Hill

       I hope so, the turret was actually quite handy when dealing with large amounts of enemies.

  • Göran Isacson

    But of course! It’s Laharl’s father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate!

    Hey, as good a guess as any at this point.
