- NIS America's Product and Development Manager for Europe Allison Walter
has shared a video today which offers a look at Disgaea 2 for PS3 along with details on how to snag some NIS America prizes!
To quote: You might believe that Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days is just another re-release of a fantastic game, but what some of you might not know is that NIS has improved on the fantastic part.
The programmers and designers got together to create some goodies to render the game play even more interesting and the story hilarious: 4 new chapters, Axel, a new main character, Magichange, and a ton of cameos from your beloved Disgaea cast of suspects.
The most important addition is the 4 new chapters featuring Axel, the has-been pop star with a crushing family responsibility. Pining to be at the top once more with hordes of screaming fans anxious to get a piece of him, Axel stumbles upon an opportunity to take part in a superhero show popular among kids. He sees himself already at the top only to... well, you'll be able to find out what destiny has in mind for him when you play the game.
Next lovely addition: Disgaea 2 has Magichange, the newfangled weapon system from Disgaea 3. This tricky little system enables monster allies to transform into a weapon. What's even trickier is that you, the gamer, will gain the different skills depending on the type of monster / weapon, which will enable you to inflict massive amounts of damage!
But, did they stop there? Oh noooo! If you place a monster-type character next to a Magichanged human-type character, and then execute the Magichange command again, voilà: you have now performed "Magichange 2," which helps you gain 100% (yay!) of the EXP and Mana gained through defeated enemies for all three characters. So, the choice is yours: defeat by weapon techniques or by system manipulation. There's got to be something political in that...
And, now, let's get down to the contest business: I'm sure that when you're playing Disgaea games, you can't help but think, "But if Laharl had this weapon, he'd annihilate this tossa!" Well, let us know what that weapon is.
Email us your 100-word description of the ultimate weapon for your favourite Disgaea character with a picture to illustrate (if you so choose, but it's not necessary) to [email protected]
. Please put "Ultimate Weapon" in the Subject field. The contest starts TODAY and finishes at the release of the game, 5 February. And what are the prizes?
1 full game of Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days, the World of Disgaea 2 art book, and a Laharl Prinny (unexplodable... sorry!)
1 full game of Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days and an unexplodable Laharl Prinny
We'll post the winners on our new Facebook

P.S. Next post, we'll talk more about our next PS3 title, Last Rebellion, the story of two fighters who share fate and battles.
P.P.S. I still have no word concerning the Disgaea 3 trophies. As soon as I do, I'll let you know here, on Facebook
and Twitter. Promise.
