has announced that Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories hits PlayStation Network today with details below, as follows:
Greetings all! We're super excited that Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories is coming to PSN later today as a PS2 Classic! I'm dropping by today to talk briefly about the title and to answer any questions you may have for us!
First let's talk about the Disgaea in general for those that are new to the series. Disgaea is a turn-based strategy role-playing game series that is well known for its over-the-top attacks that give you the ability to inflict millions of points of damage on your enemies, its cast of hilarious and memorable characters, and lastly its deep customizable gameplay and seemingly endless replayability. If you're an RPG fan and new to the series, this is an opportune chance to try it out on your PS3 for only $9.99!
Here is the story in a nutshell: a mighty Overlord named Zenon (one of my favorite characters) has cursed the land and now Veldime is transforming into a nasty Netherworld. Memories are sterilized, bodies demonized, and the world is generally falling into chaos.
The only one unaffected is a young man, named Adell. He stands up to fight the curse, but of course things never go as planned. Enter the haughty daughter of Zenon, a filthy little frog, lovable demon siblings... even a washed-up rock star?! No one can ever predict what will happen in the world of Disgaea. And of course, the other Overlords refuse to sit still watching...

Lastly, it's definitely worth mentioning two really cool mechanics called Dark Assembly and the Item World. The Dark Assembly is a senatorial-type system where players can make outlandish requests like "lower enemy level" and "I want better weapons!" and then bribe the members of the assembly to make it happen!
Need to power up your weapons and items? No problem, dood! With the item World, you can access a limitless battleground where you can upgrade weapons and items by progressing floor by floor. The Item World feature is by far one of the biggest fan-favorite mechanics of the Disgaea series, and really adds to the infinite replayability that the series touts.
Again, thank you for hanging out here today to talk about Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories with me! I'll be back soon to talk about Generation of Chaos: Pandora's Reflection (PSP) and also Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory (PS3)! Thanks, dood!
