Disgaea Dimension 2’s First Trailer Hits With Giant Zombie Tower Attack

By Spencer . October 31, 2012 . 7:07pm

Nippon Ichi Software shared a first look at Disgaea Dimension 2, a direct sequel to Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. Looks like the Sorcerer/Shaman class from Disgaea 3 is in the game and has some crazy zombie tower attack. The PlayStation 3 game uses the high resolution sprites like Disgaea 4. If you want Laharl, Flonne, and Etna’s original look pre-order Disgaea Dimension 2, so you can get a code to get Legacy Variation costumes.



Disgaea Dimension 2 comes out on March 20 in Japan.

  • Japanese Laharl’s just not quite as good as knowing American Laharl is Rita Repulsa.
    Any translations of the trailer dialog yet?


      • Does that mean Baal has to recruit 5 teenage demons with attitude?

      • SomeRandomGuy: You kinda succeeded. You have quite a fanbase around the world.

    • Kibbitz

      Rough. In square brackets means some translation disputable.


      Etna: Eh? You’re mistaken, my Lord, the next lead is obviously me, E-TO-NA.

      Flonne: Oh, Laharl-san, Etna-san, the lead role of course belongs to me, Flonne!

      Laharl: What’s with you guys all of a sudden?

      Etna: You’ve said it, Flonne-chan.
      Flonne: Of course! Being the lead obviously means being a hero, doesn’t it?

      Laharl: Eiiiiiiiiiiiiii, what in hell are you guys talking about? It’s finally my turn to-

      Etna: [So, as the idols, let’s just have Flonne and I as double leads then.]

      Flonne: Alright, let’s both of us do the title call then!

      Laharl: Oi! 

      Etna/Flonne: One, two, Disgaea Dimensions 2, please look forward to it!


      As for Laharl’s voice-acting, I’ll just like Japanese Laharl’s Mizuhashi Kaori more, no disrespect to Barbara Goodson.

  • Raze

    Talking about who’s become the protag…
    Of course The title of Protag will always held by Laharl-sama…

  • MrTyrant

    DAY 1!!!!!!

  • Herok♞

    looks great how long will we have to wait is the only question.

    • Couple months after Japanese (read: not sure, but hopefully not too long).

  • Safros9

    The trailer was rather underwhelming for some reason… I suppose it just lacked the punch that most Disgaea game trailers pack.  But so long as Pleinair is in, I can forgive any shortcomings that this game may have in the future.

    • Ren Mojito

      Don’t worry,this was just the start,an introduction! when the wheel starts up thats when the jokes will be a-flowing.

    • Locklear93

      It’s a little early to worry, I think.  The game WAS just announced, after all.  I do agree, though, that if that’s all they have ready to show, then maybe it’s not time for a trailer at all yet.  Regardless, I expect to have fun with it; NIS developed (as opposed to published) games have only let me down once.

  • Achrmaeiad

    Laharl: HAAAAAAHAHAHAHA!  I’ve sure kept you all waiting!  I, the great Laharl, am finally the main character again!

    Etna: Eeeh?  Come now, your highness, the next main character is me, Etna!

    Flonne: Geez, you two, it was decided that I’d be the main character this time!

    Laharl: What’s this all of a sudden, you guys?!

    Etna: You said it, Flonne!

    Flonne: Of course!  The main character is the “hero” after all, right?

    Laharl: Eeeeeeh?!  What are you two blabbering about?!  Listen, it’s me this time!

    Etna: Well, as a compromise, how about we have me and Flonne as double main characters?

    Flonne: Sounds good!  Well then, now let’s both say the title together!

    Laharl: Hey!

    Etna + Flonne: Aaaand, look forward to Disgaea Dimension 2!

    Laharl: And I’m the real main character!

    • Locklear93

      Thank you! A translation up front like that is great.

    • OH man, thank you!

    • Thanks for the translation. I really like those 4th wall scene.

      •  From that translation, Laharl indeed sounds depraved of that coveted MC spot.

  • Ren Mojito
  •  Is that flower. . . who I think it is?

    • I’d be amused if that flower can gloat and sprout villainous speeches that Demons are inherently evil. Imagine it also operating Battleship Yoshitsuna.

  • shion16


  • kupomogli

    It’ll be nice when NIS eventually makes these games look better than a PSX game.  Until then, I’m going to continue talking crap about them since they still have yet to make a good TRPG.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      I think after the fourth time you choose to ride this horse we can say. Final warning.

    • Zeik56

       You could make a valid argument about the quality of their TRPGs, it’s certainly not everyone’s cup of tea. However when you try and suggest their games look anything like a PSX game it just makes you look like an ignorant little prick and nobody is going to take you remotely seriously.

      If you’re just posting that to rile up the fanbase you’re doing nobody any good, including yourself. If you want to actually have a conversation it would behoove you to avoid such blatant hyperbole.

      • Well, that seems to be his habit. He’s also whined about Musou and God of War before – without any rhyme or reason, of course.

    • DurableTomb

       And as long as you keep trashing the graphics, I’m going to continue to infer that you are a hypocrite for having a FFVI character as an avatar. If your looking for a more appropriate avatar for yourself, I have a suggestion:

    • Peeka Chu

      NISA have made notable improvements to the Disgaea series graphics over the years. This isn’t a series known for their “cinematic” movie-quality cutscenes or engine though, so I’m not sure what you were expecting. 

    • SLick123456789111

      Because even if I give you your “Disgaea graphics are crap” argument (which I disagree with) , Disgaea still is a more defined franchise than Final Fantasy , which is waning away with each new installment.
      …But of course , you don’t want to hear that & will deny it.

      • Hate to admit it, but that picture made me lol’ed. 

        Sad Lightning is sad.

    • pothier.adrien

       You guys do understand that you are just feeding the troll by replying to him ?

  • Oh I want this.  I want it bad!

  • Fidelis

    my universe has ended and began anew

    A  new Disgaea game is one thing

    A new Disgaea game starring Laharl is something that I legitimately thought I could only dream of for all these years..

  • Time to put some money away for the LE.

  • DurableTomb

    You know what? Frick the inflated shipping cost and not being able to read or understand Japanese. I’m going to preorder this at Playasia, even if all I’d be doing is getting it a few months earlier than the inevitable US version.

  • Peeka Chu

    Next year is going to be very, very expensive. Especially seeing as the 360/ PS3 successors are likely to launch.

  • Go2hell66

    looking good, will play anything with more etna in it :)

  • TheSwordUser

    Years from now, people will wonder what the hell happened to “prequel” (as in, Disgaea Dimension 1, not Hour of Darkness)

  • Matheus Mendes

    I WANT…no,that’s not right…I NEED A PS3 NOW!

  • Deathgod881

    I want as well lets hope it comes out in the US

  • sd28

    i would have preferred a sequel to the second game but a sequal to the game that started the series is just as good and should serve its fans well

  • pothier.adrien

    “This video is private.” T_T

    • s07195

      Same problem here.

    • Ravage27

      is it region locked or something? :(

  • SprintsMcGee

    It says “private”, so here’s a link to a watchable version of the video for those who keep getting the same message. 


  • Ohohoho, that flower at the end of the trailer…please have a darker tone, please have a darker tone, please have a darker tone.

    If this game turns out like I am imagining it in my head, it could be one of my favorite games of all time.  

    • Göran Isacson

      HInt: it’s never going to turn out like the game in your head.

      Harsh, but an unfortunate truth I’ve forced myself to adapt to, many, many times… :(

      • I’m well aware of that, and it makes me a sad panda.

        • MellowMadman11

          The real question is, are you a sad panda with a mean face?

    • Zeik56

      It’s Disgaea, why would you expect a darker tone? Even at their most serious these games aren’t remotely “dark”.

  • Some new designs for the generic units wouldn’t hurt. Hell, I’d even take HD versions of the D1 sprites.

    • DurableTomb

      I’m interested to see what units from the original they’ll keep. These I have yet to see in the promotional material. The male thief was replaced by the female D2 thief and I doubt they’ll use the D1 Geomancer and his over-powered Dark Gun.

  • DurableTomb

    *Whistle* Hey! The Play-Asia preorders for the special edition of D2 are up.

  • TobeGrendizer92

    When I saw the picture for this article on the main page I thought, “That it, Laharl! Put on your best Dreamworks Face!”

  • MellowMadman11

    I had no idea Laharl’s VA was Barbera Goodson!
