Some Demons In Disgaea Dimension 2 Like You, Some Don’t

Disgaea Dimension 2 keeps track of which demons like Laharl and which demons don’t. You can improve relationships by bringing characters in battle together, healing them with recovery items or magic, and doing combination attacks.

In Disgaea Dimension 2 you can switch who the lead character is. For example, Flonne and Etna can walk around the castle. Flonne also has a new protect action where she can cover characters under certain conditions.

Etna can call a friendly character in for a cover attack.

The teacher/master system from previous Disgaea games is in Disgaea Dimension 2. This is a way to teach other units like the Warrior magic spells.

Disgaea Dimension 2 also has the reincarnation system. Skills are passed down this way too so you can make an archer with a fist attack techniques.

Like other Disgaea games, Disgaea Dimension 2 has guest artists that created illustrations for "Tera" tier spells. Ryou Nagi who worked on the Ar Tonelico games drew this character for Tera Wind.

Hisakata Souji made the Tera Wind spell effect.

    I think it should be: “drew this character for Tera Ice.”

    Where are all the awesome Prinny specials?

    • AkuLord3

      Having Etna throw a Prinny causes a Nuclear Explosion hitting alot of enemies 83 (this isn’t true….u would need like probably million prinnies to do that though~)

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/Juddgment Judgment8

        Nuuuuuu~ Don’t hurt ze Prinnies!

        • Locklear93

          But if they don’t suffer, they won’t earn enough HL to reincarnate. Are you suggesting you want prinnies to suffer ETERNALLY? You’re heartless!

      • Ferrick

        over a million prinnies were hurt in the making of this special move

    • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

      Seems they’re on strike, Dood.

  • Klaus00

    gonna hope for Kurtis to return D:

    • Richter

      I’m not gonna expect much but I hope they make Adell and Rozalin or even more people make a return as secret bosses or something instead of DLC. Better yet, bring Adell into the story :D Maybe…postlude?

  • Pockystix

    I wonder if they’re gonna go for some slightly alternate endings based on how much approval you have

    • Locklear93

      As much as NIS likes doing multiple endings, I’m fairly sure that’ll come into play somehow.

  • RadShiro

    So I can make my Lady Warrior x Male Gunner headcanon become real?

    Yesssss

    • GibbRS

      Indeed! I can’t wait. I just hope it doesn’t end up with every one of my character having Big Bang and not needing to use anything else. That would get kind of boring, tho I suppose that would be more for post-game content anyway.

  • zferolie

    So they are not going to use the Class world in this game, but will go back to how disgaea 1 and 2 did their skill changing?

    That will make getting skills onto other characters much easier at least. This also makes me happy for story/world building reasons: If Laharl’s netherworld didn’t have that feature last time, why would they suddenly have it? It’s little things like this that make me very happy with how NIS is handleing this sequel.

    Now we just need Asagi to appear and try to take Laharl’s place as a story mission and not a after story mission. Though I need to wonder: when does this game take place, compared to the other Disgaea games? Before Disgaea 2? If so, would Asagi still be chibi?

    • komiko12

      She would still have her SD sprite…

      • zferolie

        Haha, maybe, but they used that joke already

        • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

          What about a 16-bit Sprite version?

          • zferolie

            With classic SNES music in her battle as well

    • GibbRS

      It would be great if Asagi could get a regular campaign story tie-in, like Etna in Disgaea 2, or Axel/Akutare in Disgaea 4.

  • OverlordZetta

    Gotta love the guest artists.
    I’m actually starting to get excited for this! I kind of hope the other games get a sequel now as well…

  • Locklear93

    Oh holy crap, they brought back the teacher/master system for learning spells? Thank God; I liked that VASTLY better than Disgaea 3 and 4′s “You need mana for EVERYTHING” method.

    Edit: Also, hooray for guest art from Nagi. I loved his character designs for the AT series.

    • GibbRS

      Agreed. The Class/Chara World was really boring in my opinion, and I was never any good at it. I’d get to floor 9, go in to pass a spell over to my character and I’d be a few hundred (or thousand) mana short of being able to do what I wanted, so I just wasted all that time. I’m looking forward to being able to have a character stand next to another character and learn spells by using them enough times. Of course, this also means I’ll have to go back to having all of my mages be made by the same mage, so I can have one learn all the spells easily.

      • zferolie

        I honestly liked that system more the class world myself. It did save a lot of time in class word, and while the boosts in it were great, I hated grinding for mana to get the skills, and also playing luck in trying to get the secret skills.

        • BadenBadenPrinny

          While the Master/Apprentice system is fine. I was fine with the system from 3/4 aside from the astronomically high mana costs and Class world being Item World lite. Not to mention mana is going to be pretty much useless again. And it looks like they brought back the old weapon mastery system D:

    • Pockystix

      having mana was all fine and good, since we could save it for things we really wanted, and skip attacks or skills that weren’t in our playstyles. . . but being a mage SUCKED. The spells cost way to much, they cost way too much to even upgrade to make them hit multiple targets, and they were far too difficult to do, especially if you really were masochistic enough to be running fire/water/wind/star mages all at once.

    • xXDGFXx

      Yea, It was always fun to teach them the spells through battles than it was by “Omg, can I just I teach them already!?!”

  • Brandonmkii

    Paragraph above the Tera Cool spell calls it the Tera Wind spell, just a friendly heads up!

  • http://twitter.com/Linka13 Linka

    You had no idea how happy I am about the return of the Teacher/Student system.

    I like the relationship system too. I guess Flonne’s ideals of love are actually spreading in a way!

  • Gohobojoe

    Actually, that chracter for Tera Ice is called Joshua. She was the character for the spell Omega Ice back in D1 and Tera Ice in D2, as well as she’s a boss for the second Prinny game.

  • Demeanor

    Epicness, epicness everywhere!!!

  • Raharu95

    Finally Laharl has a badass facial cut in again. His Disgaea 3 one did not fit. and his Disgaea 4 one was meh . also’ darn, there are no female Gunner D: unless they are using a screenshot without them unlocked, as they would be besides the the males. Now back on topic. i wonder if this like and dislike system will be for other characters other than Laharl too.

  • lozffvii

    YYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!
    The finally brought back the teacher/student and weapon mastery systems!
    I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t expecting it, I thought the mana-based chara world system was there to make the games more of a challenge by limiting what skills you could give your characters. Although saying that, NIS may have found another way to make the game more of a challenge.
    Also here’s hoping for the ridiculously overpowered D1 Majin to make a return!
    Although I’d be happy if they used the D4 Android class as the uber unit again, just because I love robots.

  • Kuro Kairi

    student/teacher huh? does that mean no more class/char world? On my path from zero to uber powerhouse char world what the most boring and annoying thing in the game.

    • Sylveria

      I agree entirely. I am so happy to see the return of the systems from 1 and 2. Class world/Char World is the worst thing that ever happened to the series in my opinion.

  • Calintz YT

    I look forward to seeing this company die, which it will.

    • Elvick

      Nope! :D

  • Isaac Newton

    Cast: Insta Like

  • akiko_sakuraba

    Translation errors: Ryou did the art for Terra Cool, not Terra Wind.

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

    Yesss, teacher and master system is back. In Disgaea 3 Vita, it’s kinda difficult trying to get Mana so my Factory Des X can get +9 on spells. Gee.

  • Nazoc

    They actually brought back the teacher/master system?

    What the hell. It sucked compared to the system D3/D4 used. There’s not even the Class World either?! Great, how am I supposed to make all-300%-aptitude characters now?

    …I may not actually buy this game. I loved all the Disgaeas before and bought them but I’m not liking the way they’re taking this game.

  • http://twitter.com/iAmSoulReaping Yoshimori Kurasaki

    I’m gonna go out on a whim and try this game I already enjoy the anime but hopefully the developer will think about taking this game 3d sometime soon.

    • AkuLord3

      Dude you must be new (seeing as you are) but the series and the rest of other similar Trpgs they do have always be like this. It doesn’t need to be in 3d, heck what you see is them evolving into something new from their old look.
      The First and second Disgaea games are on Ps2 Classics (or if you have a psp/vita get those versions, they’re cheap so give them a go because just liking anime has nothing to do anything
