If you’re a Disgaea fan you probably know about all of the weapons, but just in case let’s go through the standard sword, spear, and fist. Disgaea Dimension 2, a direct sequel to Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness, has these weapons:

 

Sword and Axe

Spear and Staff

Bow and…

…Book!

The book weapon in Disgaea Dimension 2 isn’t like Raspberyl’s book with teeth. Books let users summon spirits  like a fire spirit named salamander that breathes fire on enemies. You can also use the book’s corner to smack enemies.

Laharl can create other characters to join him on his quest to show the Netherworld who is the new king. Let’s check out the classes announced so far.

Warrior (male or female)

Magician (male or female)

Healer (male or female)

Martial Artist (male or female)

Disgaea Dimension 2 lets players choice voice samples and a personality for their characters. If you make a vigorous priest you’ll give characters you heal a defense boost. One kind of female mage will use HP to cast spells if their SP runs out and sporty female warriors may do extra damage depending on how many squares they move towards their target.

Yeah Disgaea Dimension 2 has a bunch of different color options to choose from.

    I thought that girl in white was a new healer female… but I see the old healer female below.

    … Did disgaea give us a trap?

    • xXDGFXx

      That is never a bad thing.

      • zferolie

        Never said it was ;)

      • Calintz YT

        No, no it is not. Delicious.

    • William Hsia

      well, its not their first…..

    • OlimacFTW

      Disgaea already gave us a trap.
      Alraune.

    Does my wallet taste good, Nisa… ?

  • Alane Felix

    Weird that after four main games, three remakes and several spin-offs, they add a new weapon type. I kinda like the books, though. I liked them well enough in Makai Kingdom and Phantom Brave, but they make staffs seem inferior since they actually HAVE abilities.

    Also, I hope the ability to change a character’s sprite color is easier to do than in D3 and D4…!

  • AkuLord3

    Yay new weapon…can’t remember much but i did use the Book in Makai Kingdom…be cool if they brought the Katana or hell all the crazy weapons from Makai Kingdom

    • DurableTomb

      I’d be ecstatic to see a return of the Makai Kingdom version of the Super Robo Suit.

  • Pockystix

    looks so good

    wonder if we can still have your units become lovers.

    Nothing like your Magic Knight being in a relationship with your Succubus lol

  • MrTyrant

    So we have new weapon (yay! about time) and we can change the color of the characters we create since the beggining? because searching for the paint shop in the Item world was annoying, mayber there are extra colors to unlock.

  • Tien Ron

    that can’t be a male healer….could it?

    • komiko12

      Unfortunately, I think it is… You could see that the female healer design is still the same.. so that means..

  • MediaMindControl

    Sorry nisa, I love you. I really do. I’ve seriously bought every one of your games. Soul nomad being the favorite. but this book thing does not impress me, nor does it add enough of an edge. I think you could easily add a few more weapon types to the game. well actually on second thought I guess it doesn’t matter since majority of the time I play this game, it is mindless grinding with skipped animations. so new moves. sure why not.

    • Testsubject909

      Soul Nomad, loved it!

      Reminded me a lot of Ogre Battle… I don’t meet enough people who liked Ogre Battle…

      • MediaMindControl

        I liked Ogre battle. I find it hard to not like these types of games though seeing that they are probably my favorite genre. S-RPG’s and all. Always looked for a Japanese wonderswan over here so I could play all the SRW games I played on the emulator. I really enjoyed how soul nomad was sort of mixed with advanced wars. IMO s-rpg’s don’t appeal well here in the states. It’s Sad really.

  • Elvick

    Wonder if this engine would work on Vita. I’ll be buying this day one when it’s localized (positive thinking~), but I’m just curious if we’ll ever see Disgaea 4 on Vita, and eventually this. I assume it’s the same engine anyway.

    • Testsubject909

      I’d certainly be willing to repurchase Disgaea 4.

      Aside from one looney poor girl who is in complete denial, though I can’t completely blame her considering what would happen once she admits it… I really love the cast of Disgaea 4 and the gameplay is the most rewarding of them all in my humble opinion. Which is no big surprise since they’ve had 3 prior titles to tweak and refine the formula.

      That said. I expect Disgaea Dimension 2 to further improve on it as well. At least I certainly hope so.

    Sicily amuses me more and more every time I see her. Give me Sicily now!

  • Phlo

    Haha, Salamander summon attack name is a Fahrenheit 451 reference. I guess they read Ray Bradbury over in Japan, too.

  • Isaac Newton

    I swear I will KILL Overlord Bald(PUNS) with my super mega hyper ultra magnificent shining BOOK !

  • Locklear93

    Ah, my beloved female martial artist is back. Assuming female samurai/holy swordswoman/whatever you want to call her is intact, I am quite happy. Though I wouldn’t mind the female gunslinger from Disgaea 3 returning, too.

  • Ravage27

    So hyped for this, new weapon sounds really cool ^_^

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000619126996 Emma R Hill

    Sounds awesome, glad to know my Female Brawler is back. She helped me get through Disgaea 1 and 3 with no problem at all.

  • komiko12

    Nice.. I think the two girls summoned from the book are based on Fuujin and Raijin? Love that new Female Martial Artist/Brawler.

    Now, there would be people who are looking for the strongest combination of personality and voice sample..

  • OverlordZetta

    A new weapon? About time. Now how about some new classes that don’t get phased out with the next game?

  • Raharu95

    Male healer, What happened to yous O_o?
