NIS America Will Pull Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention Out Of The Netherworld


NIS America have announced that they’re releasing Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice next year. Wait, no – we mean Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention, which is their name for Disgaea 3 Return on PlayStation Vita.


Absence of Detention has new characters, stories, and systems, not all of which have been revealed yet. One of the new features is Geo Blocks, which allow you to manipulate a stage’s rules and reach enemies that would normally be out of reach.


Geo Panels complement Geo Blocks. You can place the blocks on the panels for effects such as EXP bonuses or invincibility. All panels of the same colour will share the effect caused by the Geo Block. NISA also mention “Item Worlds,” which are randomly-generated battle stages within items you pick up. You can clear these to boost the item’s power.


Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention is slated for a spring 2012 release in the U.S. and Europe.
