By Spencer . February 21, 2013 . 10:15pm

disd2-01NIS America confirmed they will bring Disgaea Dimension 2: A Brighter Darkness to North America this fall. The PlayStation 3 game puts Laharl back into the spotlight as the main character. Laharl is the King of the Netherworld in this game, but not everyone acknowledges Laharl’s leadership. Meanwhile, Laharl’s sister shows up and Laharl… turns into a girl?


We’ll find out more about Disgaea Dimension 2: A Brighter Darkness soon! The game comes out in Japan this March.

  • Zarx

    Huh, did not expect it to come so soon, happy about it though.

  • Natat

    Haha damn, NISA is on a roll right now.

  • Belphegor

    Damn, here’s me thinking there weren’t many games on the horizon this year and now NISA announce 3 must have titles in one day… my gaming backlog is not going to like this one bit…

  • Adol Christin

    I never doubted NISA :)

    • Kevadu

      Doubting that NISA would localize a Disgaea game is just silly. Not only does it have priority being an internal NIS game, but it’s literally their most successful franchise. They don’t have anything that sells even close to what Disgaea games do, so why on earth wouldn’t they localize one?

      • Adol Christin

        True. We have gotten every single Disgaea game (even the Vita game) :)

        • Testsubject909

          It’s hard to go back to Disgaea 3 after having played so much Disgaea 4 though.

          Actually the more I think about it, the harder it is for me to go back to play earlier Disgaea games. Just every few features here and there that I constantly miss and would prefer to be able to make use of…

          Though on the other hand, Disgaea 2 does have that fast-forward early lv9999 monsters to your party with the simple rule that you can capture enemies twice the level of your highest level party member in the base (at least that’s how it worked on the PS2, no idea for the PSP version).

        • Punny Fuzz

          Even the goddamn visual Novel!

    • Curan_Altea

      The only thing I was disappointed by lack of La Pucelle Ragnarok localization but that one was understandable.

      • Tien Ron

        no it wasn’t, because disgaea in itself isn’t religious friendly so they had no reason not to release it

  • Suriel Cruz

    TOLD U!!!


    • DesmaX

      NISA is just a publisher, they don’t make games

      • Suriel Cruz

        Yeah I know, but they can work in publishing it… if Guts do it.

        • DesmaX

          But Tecmo owns Gust now. They’re the one who would publish it

          • Suriel Cruz

            Yeah… now!

  • Curan_Altea

    All the money I won’t have.
    college or games………

  • chobitsza

    I still hope that someday NIS games can be launch both JP and US at the same date…Yeah, I still hope…

  • Draparde

    First XIV info now NISA … along with all the other games coming out this year…. i…i don’t know if i can make it!

  • I want NISA to give me time to finally finish up with 4, (I did just beat Baal in 3) but at the same time I don’t want to wait long to play this… So conflicted.

    • Testsubject909

      Do what anyone usually does when they’re pleasantly burdened with a lot of good unfinished games.

      Make separate classified piles.

      I have my own set:
      A) Unplayed games
      B) Unfinished games
      C) Games which I got an ending but did not complete 100%
      D) Games I have completed 100% but still enjoy playing every now and again
      E) Games in storage since I’m done and will most likely not return to them anytime soon (Such as the Ace Attorney series)

      But I warn you, slippery slope of getting more and more unfinished games, less and less time to play them all, and well… yeah. Unless you’re also part collector, you’d probably end up reselling some of them to make space.

  • kool_cid414

    Okay, so in the last 20 minutes or so I’ve got news on a new disgaea game I wanted to buy a spiritual successor to a game I recently fell in love with (ZHP) and Time and eternity. I’m in either in heaven or hell with all the wants and none of the monies.

    • Testsubject909

      Now we just need a game to follow the footsteps of Soul Nomad and I’ll be 100% delighted beyond reason with NIS.

      • DesmaX

        I though The witch and a hundred knights was going to be that

        I mean, a dark RPG made by NIS

  • Go2hell66

    NIS went HAM today

  • SupaPhly

    nisa, stahp, you’re drunk

    • Drunk with awesome lol

      • StephenBellicci

        “Ugh… They’re still doing the main character BS? I wish NIS would go
        back to the old days when they actually had trailers that’d get me
        excited for the game, like with the first Disgaea trailer that had the
        Tsunami Bomb song in it. Nowadays, it’s just a lot of 4th breaking
        “humor” and a whole lotta ham.”

        Now now. I miss the Tsunami Bomb awesomeness song like in Disgaea 1 too! But this still looks great.

        PS Tsunami Bomb forever!

    • Testsubject909

      *gets ready a fresh batch of bottles of sake*

      NISA, it’s a party, you’re the guest of honor and you’re invited to play a little game.

      Take a shot every time you do something wacky! We start right now!

      • Xalsunwolf

        (Xalsunwolf has Passed Out)

      • Oh Gods, everyone will be drunk in 5 minutes!! ROFLMAO!! XD

    • Has NISA ever been anything else?

      Also, hi, LoL player :P


    Was there ever any doubt it would not release here Kappa?

  • Very excited, now I need to go and actually finish the first Disgaea!

  • Ah yes, this and Paradox will be pre-ordered once an Amazon listing appears. No questions asked.

    Especially this. I want this soooo much, I can feel it.

    • Anime10121

      Preorder pages for all 3 are already up, had them preordered 5-6 hours ago :)

  • natchu96

    Main character rights seems to be the number one thing characters do in universes where the fourth wall has been thoroughly smashed . . .

    That, or how much the script sucks.

  • Can I has a Vita version?

    • Herok♞

      since its a disgaea game it will get a vita version eventually since NIS put most of their disgaea games on portables later

      • Pyrotek85

        Yeah I’m actually expecting them to announce Disgaea 4 on vita before long.

        • I’ll be waiting. Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention is still sitting on my shelve since I haven’t finished P4G yet >_>

  • This comes as no surprise and I’m so ready for this!

  • ragingmerifes

    Holy crap… this week is being intense for us… PS4, SMTIV release date, Disgaea D2 and Time and Eternity localization, more stuff from FFXIV, FFX HD screenshots… we just needed a new Doctor Who episode to make it perfect, but it can wait until March.
    Still, best week ever.

  • NISA forever!

    Any news on EU on any of these?

  • riceisnice

    That was fast

  • noctis_nox

    Dooood!! This is awesome dood!
    Can’t wait!! This and fate paradox.

  • Sergio Briceño

    These are dimensional news! Ok too forced again…

  • Ayaka

    Guess this fall will be a real nightmare for my wallet.

  • leadintea

    Ugh… They’re still doing the main character BS? I wish NIS would go back to the old days when they actually had trailers that’d get me excited for the game, like with the first Disgaea trailer that had the Tsunami Bomb song in it. Nowadays, it’s just a lot of 4th breaking “humor” and a whole lotta ham.

    • DesmaX

      Don’t be like that.
      That Disgaea 4 trailer was pretty cool

  • Tokoat

    I woke up to the email from NISA announcing this games localization… can’t… contain…. excitement!

  • zferolie

    Just take all my money NISA! Take it all!


  • Brimfyre

    Well NIS will be getting roughly $200 from me this year.

  • Brimfyre

    Damn Fem Laharl is hot.

  • MrTyrant

    Disgaea 2 Dimension, The Guided Fate Paradox and Time and Eternity. NISA made my year completly.

  • Demeanor

    Just listening to the VA felt SOOO GOOOOD!!! XD Day 0.

  • Quinton Cunningham

    Please let this be dubbed as well. The JP voices make me want to drive a power drill into my skull

  • Anime10121

    <3 Nisa, they are quickly rising to the top of my favorite game companies :D

    I love how they are so true to releasing what they are good at and not trying to cater to an audience who doesn't want, or even like these types of games. Other developers (not saying who) could learn many a lesson from Nippon Icchi ;P

  • This is cool to hear!!! Disgaea fans in US will be really happy to have this out here soon.

  • Kawashima

    Its great to see NISA is bringing these games over within the year but Im also curious about the Special Report Division game as well. Any idea if NISA has plans for that?

  • Goddamn NIS, Y U TAKE MY MONEYS?!
