Disgaea Dimension 2 Has Female Heavy Knights And A Piggyback System

By Spencer . January 29, 2013 . 3:10pm

dis4 Leaks from Dengeki PlayStation reveal Disgaea Dimension 2 will have a new female Heavy Knight character. You may remember from other Disgaea titles that Heavy Knights are great with spears and throwing other units.


The magazine also reveals a new "piggyback system." No details on what that is yet, this might be the monster mount system that we’ve seen in screenshots before.

    • Göran Isacson

      Unless they are lolis in disproportionately large armors. Because Disgaea. No snoo snoo then, only restraining orders ;_;

    alreadz pro order my speil frist print copy from japan this game will cause me many a night sleep less heh but the wife will keep me in good health

  • xXDGFXx

    I’ve honestly never attempted to use the Heavy Knight o_o

    • Draparde

      I’ve only ever used them once, for a X-dimension stage in Disgaea 4 lol.

    • Akimitsu

      Heavy Knights were great for throwing characters, but that’s all I think I used them for.

    • Ronald Bixler

      That may have to do with the typical way defense is handled in the Disgaea series. Tanks are fine and good in the main story where the unit levels are reasonably tame, but once the post game hits and unit levels start to skyrocket, practically every unit becomes a glass cannon because the enemies are strong enough to wreck you on their turn, high defense or no.

    … Might be cool.
    I’d kind of rather them just bring in the Amazons from Phantom Brave though, but I guess genderswapped classes can work too.

  • Yuriangels

    what if they have male and female class for ever single class? that say nice!

  • TatsuyaKyo

    I can see it now. Tower stacks with units on piggybacks in-between.

  • riceisnice

    But don’t take out the male heavy knight plz.

  • konsama

    Throw ’em, Fuse ’em, and now Ride ’em.

    *Insert Laharl waving a cowboy hat riding a prinny as it falls down…*

    • Ronald Bixler

      Yip pie-kay-yae.

  • leadintea

    I always envisioned the Heavy Knight to be the male version of the Magic Knight.

  • KiTA

    Er, is that screenshot from Disgaea 4, or did they start releasing English localized D:D2 screenshots?

    • Tenno Seremel

      Judging by the scenery it is Disgaea 4.

  • Awkward handshake is awkward XD You can see the tsundere in the air in tht pic lol.

  • Knowing the series, it will be a moe girl wearing heavy armor.

  • Tianyu Wei

    I think Heavy Knight female would look like Barbara..

  • Vitonofrio del Rosso
