    It sounds really fun, and while i loved the Disgaea sequels, they never compared story-wise and especially comically-based to the first one. Glad that is back.

    I wonder if we’ll see more of Gordon, or maybe the return of Mid-boss, cuz i can’t even remember his name. kekeke

    • Dansar

      I really hope they aren’t DLC, but this is NIS.

    • Tiredman

      Agreed. I am seriously hoping that they do come back, and their English voice actors too. The acting of the first game was top notch and sold the game big time.

  • r0gamer940

    Love food for thought #4. Just saw a pic of the priest and its a preaty nice trap

  • RichyGaming

    I don’t know if I’ll be buying this game. I still haven’t gotten used to Laharl’s English VA, there were a few scenes where I felt it didn’t fit his character from the sound of his VA. But that’s not the only reason I’m not getting it. But at any rate I’ll wait until I hear more things about this game since it’s not even out yet. Gotta give it a chance, dood.

      You’ll not get your salary if you’re not buying this game….

    • Zero_Destiny

      I like Barbara Goodson’s portrayal as Laharl myself. The voice of Rita Repulsa, just so perfect. ha ha

      But to each their own, everyone has their opinions. :) There’s always the Japanese audio if you want, although, I dunno about the other reasons. lol

      • RichyGaming

        Well, yeah. There’s always the option for JP audio instead. But I like both, I just didn’t get used to Laharl’s VA. Tough luck I guess lol.
        I really do like Barbara Goodson’s way of VAing for Laharl, though. I can’t imagine any other voice actor who can pull off Laharl except Mona Marshall (I believe this VA did Roger from Star Ocean 3, Kite from Dot Hack, Young Bobobobo, Terriermon, etc). But I think the best performance was on the first Disgaea game. I’m only saying because imo Laharl gave more cold emotions. I understand he’s changed but the JP VA still somewhat makes him talk that way. In comparison to Disgaea 2, 3, and 4, it didn’t feel the same. I’m not gonna give out spoilers so I’m just gonna say his mischievous way of doing things sound more goofy than usual.

        • Zero_Destiny

          I see, I see. Well it’s all good, sounds like you enjoy the subtleties in Kaori Mizuhashi’s performances in the later games.

        • GibbRS

          If you’re worried that Laharl will be a really nice guy in DD2, don’t be. He’s pretty similar to how it was in the middle of Disgaea 1 in DD2. If you liked Disgaea 1, you’ll really like Disgaea D2. I finished the Japanese version and loved every minute of it.

  • Dark Zerato

    NIS should turn Laharl into a part-timer at McDonald in the next game.

    • r0gamer940

      you mean McRonald’s right?

      • Dark Zerato

        I think it’s MgRonald.

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

          Nope, it’s McReagan.

          • Ramengeddon

            you’re totally out of the loop here lol

  • Magnumsally

    exciting

  • Kitestwinblades

    This game alone will make my October xD I cant wait!

    • GibbRS

      Just October? :P

  • Sangaz

    yep, the new trap healer was a great addition. This will be the first game I’ve actually used the male healer class.

  • xAtKx

    This game will easily make my backlog unplayable for months.

  • Suriel Cruz

    I’m counting the days till I got my hands on Disgaea D2, literally on my PSN ID status. xD As for DLC… I really want to play with Adell and Lilliel from The Guided Fate Paradox. Hopefully the 1st DLC Characters will release the same day the game release. ^ ^

    • Zero_Destiny

      I’m really excited about the Phantom Brave DLC. That’s still one of my favorite NIS titles, the sprites they get in D2 look great.

      • DesmaX

        Too bad they left Gig for the last wave… oh well

        • komiko12

          What?! Gig’s is the last batch?
          I was waiting for Marjoly… :/

          • DesmaX

            The last batch should be, according to the trophy list (NISA just left all of the trophies on start… Wonder if they’ll release them sooner), Gig – Nisa – Plume

  • WyattEpp

    Sounds great! But…you haven’t played Disgaea 4. What. What are you doing, you need to do that. Like, last year. (It’s good.)

    • MrTyrant

      It’s amazing and one of my NIS top games but maybe he is waiting for the vita version that is coming the next year.

      • Zero_Destiny

        lol It’s more like I just skipped the initial release. I was even thinking of buying it for all the goodies, but didn’t have the money. Then I never really got around to buying it later and just moved on to some other games or happenings in my life. It’s happened a lot more often for me now that I’m older. ^^;

        I keep hearing good things, I might have to buy the PSV release some time in the future, could be a blessing in disguise.

  • MrTyrant

    The release date it’s two days before my birthday, I think it’s good gift. I also want to buy Beyond Two Souls that is going to be released the same day, right?

  • Xaltmas

    I will buy this, if only for Etna.

    “and set up if you want auto-save or manual save.”
    Honestly, I just can’t believe that it’s so hard to find a JRPG with auto-save function these days… Glad NIS finally decided to do it.

    Day 1 for me

  • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

    oh man i forgot i need to go pre-order this

  • KuroNathan

    “As someone who sat out previous Disgaea titles this generation”

    Aww really Thomas? You missed out on Disgaea 4 which is the game I consider the best out of the entire disgaea series in terms of gameplay, story, and humor. You should really go and check that one out.

    • Zero_Destiny

      I guess I really should get around to it. ^^; lol Everyone keeps telling me how good it is.

      • GibbRS

        Disgaea 4 was my second favorite behind Disgaea 1… well until Disgaea D2 came out (in Japan). Like Kuro stated, the gameplay is amazingly polished and enjoyable.

  • Shady Shariest

    ugh… Save my fund and buy this for halfies from U.K or 1 month of WoW… -_-’

  • SlickRoach

    Disgaea D2 and Pokémon X & Y coming out within a few days of each other? R.I.P. fall college semester. Impatiently awaiting my premium edition in the mail in the upcoming weeks.

  • Cody

    I always use Flonne as my save.

  • Punny Fuzz

    I wonder if Barbara Goodson will also be voicing Femharl?
    In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever heard her actual female voice before.

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

      She did voiced the leading female character in the dub of Tekkaman Blade; Star Summers.

  • Rockman

    Great article, can’t wait to get the game LE.

  • ZekeFreek

    I’m kind of disturbed by the sheer number of people who skipped 3 and 4…

  • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

    Still need to pick up the first, but the direct sequel is looking really good. The series just continues to look aesthetically pleasing as well; the core gameplay never needs to make any drastic changes, just a tweak here and there and we are good to go.

  • ChiffonCake

    How’s the editing of the translation? Some pre-release screenshots made it look kind of iffy, and I was wondering if they had fixed that or not.

  • Brimfyre

    Decisions!!!!
    I’ve bought and played every Disgaea at launch but I would seriously rather play this on the Vita. SRPGS are well suited for the traveling lifestyle handhelds afford. If only it had remote play!

    Or with my luck this would be the only NIS game that won’t be ported to Vita. Curses, I’ll just get it.

  • Croix Zapp

    Oh my! New addition to party!

  • Croix Zapp

    Knowing i can only play this on my vita in 2-3 years time make me sad =/

  • GibbRS

    One of my favorite features of DD2 is the dude in the courtyard with the cheat menu. You can set the enemy level as a menu option, instead of voting it up or down a dozen times in the Dark Council. You can also turn on or off things like the assist attacks (which I really dislike).

    The assist attacks are goofy because you’ll attack some really tough enemy with one of your tough dudes, and some weak character will jump in all “Hey I can help too!” then attacks the tough enemy for 0 damage, getting slaughtered with a counter attack. It happened so many times before I figured out you could turn it off.
