Nippon Ichi formally announced Disgaea 4 and, yes, the graphics have evolved.
Humongous weapons, dual sword wielding, and tower attack… jump rope? Disgaea 4 even zanier character stacking ideas. More importantly, the game has a network mode. The trailer shows a ship sailing in with two Valbatozes and Fuka (the girl dressed as a Prinny) when another user docking for a fight.
Disgaea 4 comes out in Japan on February 24, 2011. First print copies include a PR card and product code to download Flonne. I suppose that confirms downloadable characters too. The 9,975 yen ($116) limited edition includes an artbook, soundtrack CD, and a Petit Nendoroid Fuuka of Fuuka.
