You knew Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days was coming. The only question was when. NIS America set a fall release target for the enhanced port of Disgaea 2.
Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days takes elements from Disgaea 3 and adds them to Disgaea 2. Axel can take advantage of the magichange system and partner with Mao, the protagonist of Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice.
The game also has a new side story starring Dark Hero Axel who even has his own hub world. Unfortunately, the domestic release of Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days will not get a multiplayer upgrade like Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness.
