NIS America has recently announced the official release dates for strategy RPG Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness. According to their announcement, the game will hit the PS3 in Europe on September 27, followed by a North American release on October 8.
For those not in the know, the Disgaea franchise is an RPG (with an anime adaptation) that pokes fun at the genre itself, featuring comedic elements and parodies of genre tropes, and is also known for having a strange leveling system, where characters can level up to 9,999 (most RPGs only allow you to level up to 99 or 255) and use ridiculously strong, screen-filling super attacks even during the low level parts.
Disgaea D2 will feature enhanced customization along with a revamped character creation system, and a Master/Pupil system for learning skills and boosting stats. There’s also a new Item World, and will feature the return of main characters Laharl, Etna, and Fionne with a brand new story.
