'Disgaea DS' (NDS) Coming to Europe - New Screens

by Rainier on Sept. 26, 2008 @ 3:16 a.m. PDT

Disgaea DS offers a deep strategy RPG experience with an exceptional story, a fantastic script, and a host of loveable characters and settings. An all-new story focus means a completely different experience for the player, not to mention a brand new ending. Geo Cubes add special effects to the battlefield, completely shifting the balance in the blink of an eye. Using local wireless multiplayer support, take your friends on in grand battles of strategy and wit ┬ľ or try different modes like Defeat the Leader and Capture the Flag.

Simple yet highly addictive, Disgaea DS is an updated portable version of the classic Strategy RPG Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, previously available on the PlayStation® 2 computer entertainment system. Since its release Disgaea has won over a loyal following of fans that have grown to love the quirky humour and deep, long-lasting challenge.

Disgaea DS doesn't just let you take the Disgaea madness on the road, but introduces exciting innovations such as the new duel system multiplayer, complete with masses of customisable rules and game options. You'll also be able to connect to your friend's Nintendo DS to swap and share items, take your battles to a new strategic level with Geo Cubes and there's an added exclusive new story mode dedicated to Etna and her quest to become Beauty Queen Ultimate Overlord.

John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, "I am delighted that we are able to bring Disgaea DS to players in Europe and PAL territories. Nippon Ichi has created a game perfectly suited for portable play that will entertain and challenge in equal measure."

The Netherworld – a place darker than a pitch-black cave, located deeper than the depths of the seas. It is a cursed land where evil reigns and foul beings dwell. Nobody knows its whereabouts, but everybody fears its existence…

The story takes place two years after the death of King Krichevskoy, the ruler of the Netherworld. His son Laharl slept for two full years, unaware of his father's death, while demons fought for supremacy over the Netherworld. With the help of his vassal Etna and her underlings, the egocentric, megalomaniac Prince Laharl fights his way to become the next king.
