Disgaea Legion Battle Is Nippon Ichi’s Largest Crossover Yet

By Spencer . April 30, 2013 . 2:10am

dis1aWe’ve seen other Nippon Ichi characters like Marona pop into Disgaea games before, usually as downloadable content. Disgaea Legion Battle takes this a step further by bringing together characters from Disgaea 1-4, Disgaea Dimension 2: A Brighter Darkness, Criminal Girls, Hayarigami, Phantom Brave, Legacista, and Rhapsody into a single game.


The "Legion Battle" part is for a new battle system where up to 15 players can team up to fight a rival legion. GMO developed Disgaea Legion Battle for Android. It’s a free download with additional items available through microtransactions.

    woah! iphone users got the shaft!?

    • Raharu95

      Surprising is it not?

  • KiTA

    Hm, wonder if they’ll localize this.

  • Sardorim

    To think that we got this before Makai Wars. >.<

  • And here I was expecting some sort of crossover fighter/RPG using all of NIS’ series for PS4 and Vita.

    • Zeonsilt

      Same here.

    • Herok♞

      Why when ever there are titles like this with most characters ever or largest cross over you should sadly expect social games.

  • RichyGaming

    I was about to get hype, thinking it was a crossover fighting 2D game. But never mind.

  • Raharu95

    Wonder when one of my dreams of a Nippon Ichi fighter will occur. *goes away to do more hoping*

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      My thoughts exactly DOOD! That would be great. And besides they dont have to be too serious about it. I mean it is Disgaea lolz

    • Curan_Altea

      They just need to get Arc System Works like with Persona 4 Arena.
      They are the masters of 2D fighting games.

    • DesmaX

      Yeah, a Disgaea fighting game with one-hit kill sounds pretty cool

      doesn’t seem like you’d be missing much

    All dat flat

    Ugh, I was actually quite excited as I was reading the article. I was happy when I read that there would be Rhapsody characters.

    Then I saw the screenshots…A card game. -_-

    • puchinri

      Same here. The Rhapsody part made me really excited, but I deflated when I saw the screens. Kind of a shame.

    • Kevadu

      Seriusly, man. What a misleading intro…

    • My thoughts:


      And for those of you thinking of a localization, remember back to the fact that NISA was supposed to do so with the last Android Disgaea title but ended up cancelling it here last July.

      • They won’t localize Android titles because they would have to test it on too many makes and models of phones and devices—that was was the answer we got on the NISA forums regarding the Android version the the Neptunia app.

        So, it’s best not to expect anything released on Android from NISA; they’ve made it clear that they are unwilling to take the risk, or to put the time and money into development.

    • ShadowDivz

      Same, what really got me going though is Criminal Girls.

  • chobitsza

    I missed the crossover game like Cross Edge though…

  • ZekeFreek

    On the one hand, it’s Disgaea. On the other hand, it’s a CARD GAME so NISA will never touch it with a fifty foot stick due to their irrational fear of card games.

  • ivanchu77

    HOLY SHIT, YEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeessssss………….



  • Ceci “Ruzuzu” Kiyomizu

    I swear if this card game sucks your all going to the shadow realm.

  • Kevin Schwarz

    Okay, card games… the easiest and lamest way to get around crossovers over in Japan it seems.

  • A card game? Not interested.

  • Isaac Todd

    Sounds like something GREE would make.

  • puchinri

    Nice to see Rhapsody back in some form and getting some love. I usually feel kind of bad for it (and it’s one of my favorite games from them, if not the first).

    In the future though, I kind of want to see NIS do an even larger crossover, and not just focus it on Disgaea (or use it for brand name appeal).

    • komiko12

      I wait for the day when I see an HD Rhapsody game that can be localized.

      The last time I saw Cornet was in the PSP ver. of La Pucelle that never got out of Japan.

      The game that has Marjoly’s younger form was also not localized.

  • What’s a Soul Nomad?

  • PoweredByHentai

    If anyone’s interested in the game, you can grab it here:


    Unfortunately for me, Google says that I cannot install the game on my Galaxy Note 2. Sadness.

  • Follower_of_Pram

    When wanting more characters, having said characters as just cards isn’t what’s in mind. Quite the shame really for the term “crossover” to be this.
