Nippon Ichi is almost done with Disgaea 3. In Japan it’s coming out on January 31, 2008 (?!). The story features Mao an honor student who never shows up to class and Raspberyl, Mao’s troublemaking friend who does all her homework. Things are topsy-turvy in the underworld!
Gameplay-wise there are a lot more throwing options in combat, monster fusions and 3D puzzles with Geo Blocks. Disgaea 3 also adds in a few new classes like the female samurai and the male Souryo. I'm excited about the new tower attack pictured above. Something about swinging a tower of your allies seems so wrong… yet so devilishly right.
Update: Game|Watch has changed the release date from Disgaea 3 from January 31, 2008 to TBD. The date could have been a leak or it could have been a mistake.
