Someone fill me in on the story of this.
I saw Laharl and crew. I thought those guys were only in DIsgaea 2 and it's remakes?

Nippon Ichi characters tend to make cameo appearances.

I'm looking forward to this, the Laharl arc is my favorite part of the series.

NIS does love cameos. I've lost count of how many there are in Disgaea 4.

Main cast of Disgaea 1, from what I found on a wiki this seems like it's a direct sequel to that story? I honestly haven't kept up much with Disgaea games, went straight from the first to the fourth, so I missed...a lot.



That's all off memory, Shadow of Death could probably pick out a couple things I got wrong.

Sweet, finally! I've been waiting for someone to make a thread in this forum (and I'm so glad that there's a nice trailer out).

It seems you guys aren't too familiar with what's going on? I've played all the main Disgaea games (1 ~ 4) so far, and from what I understand, this one is a direct sequel of the 1st one, which is why I'm so excited about it. 2 was alright, 3 was pretty decent, 4 was good but they all lacked something, namely Laharl, Etna, and Flonne being the main characters.

The fact that the famous trio is back is like the whole reason I'm 10x more excited for this than I would be if it were just Disgaea 5. This is gonna be great.

Tenshi! Long time no see.

So is the title of this game referring to itself? The 2 I mean, it's calling itself Disgaea 1.2, so to speak?

I actually really liked the cast of D4, if they become DLC for this, definitely picking them up.

This is indeed a direct sequel to the first game, which pleases me greatly. I think it takes place 5 or 10 years after the events in the first game? Not sure. I haven't researched properly.

It's sort of calling itself "Disgaea 1: The Sequel in effect. The 'Dimension' bit there, is mainly to distinguish itself from Disgaea 2.

D2 was decent (But I hated the Felony system, and getting to the Land of Carnage was a pain), D3 was better than D2 I think and made getting to the extra stuff easier. D4...Hell, I haven't even finished the main story on that one. Loads of people liked it, but while the story was decent, I found the stages an annoying exercise in tedium. Every stage nearly, was a puzzle. Not hard puzzles, but sometimes time consuming. I did rather prefer stages more focused on beatdowns, even if there isn't as much 'strategy' to it. The way D1 did it was more enjoyable.

Geo Puzzle after Geo Puzzle was just annoying.

Lorx - You were off on one key point, but not too bad ^_^



Naturally I'm getting Disgaea Dimension 2's most premium NA version, even if I do have to import as usual from NISA's store. I wonder if we'll get the statues that Japan is getting? Doubtful TBH.

Yeah I can agree on that much for D4, once I finished the story, never went back to it...ever. Puzzles can be fun, puzzles can be interesting, but it got really old that every stage was a puzzle until the final levels. Those levels were beatdowns against some enemies that skyrocketed up in level pretty fast.

Sounds like my kind of fighting XD

I'd probably end up revisiting those stages, weakening the enemies, and combining them for greatly increased EXP. Or even doing it on the initial run-through if I happen to get two or more enemies down to very low HP.

Nothing quite like a "If I fail to kill this enemy I created, which is 2 to 3 times my level in one turn, I'm probably screwed?" fight eh?

Lorx ~ Hey, yeah it's been a while. I still have you on MSN, though, but you're not on much and the only thing I ever really know to talk to you about is Disgaea so I guess we haven't messaged each other in a long time >.>

To add to what I said earlier, my main dislike of Disgaea 2 consisted of the Felony system. As for Disgaea 3, I destroyed that game. Had Everyone at 9999 with Rank 40 Max Level weapons and my class was full of 1 unit of each class of tier 6 human or monster that I also raised to level 9999. (That's like 64 units). I spent 200 or 300 hours I think on that one.

Disgaea 4 was alright, but the story wasn't as good I thought. Though maybe a little better than questing for hot sauce. I beat the CoO on that game and got a few characters up to about 5000~ or so with some Giant Desco'ing and whatnot, but then I decided that was enough.

-----

As far as Disgaea Dimension 2, as it's been established, yeah the Dimension part is just to separate it, but it's definitely a sequel to D1, which is great because they had the best Main Characters IMO. I think it's been 10 years since Disgaea 1 came out, not 10 years after the events of D1 within the game. I'm not expecting there to be a huge time gap between where we left off and the story of DD2.

I am overjoyed to learn that there will be a legitimate sequel to my favorite game in the series with my favorite cast, but I can't help wondering about a few things.

The gang's appearance in D2 is canon, is it not? As is Flonne's in D4. How will that be handled, I wonder.


Either way, I really hope that the character development they all went through isn't retconned out for the sake of some jokes or even an entire plot arc, especially Laharl's.

Corruption - Well, considering the plot is supposed to take place a mere handful or so years after the events of D1 I think, chances are all this stuff happened BEFORE their appearance in D2 and beyond.

Wouldn't put it past them to put leading comments to their cameo appearances in other games, like maybe a character will disappear for a chapter (and it's part of the challenge to survive without them), and it turns out they were 'Making an appearance in another game' or some such >_>

Shadow of Death Another thought I had earlier today about how they might work in the appearances in other games is that D1 had a ton of different endings, and this direct sequel might work off of a different ending than the others.


Or you might be right. It could be that this sequel will actually prominently feature Baal as a major character instead of a bonus boss, since Laharl actually has a reason to want to see him dead (he killed his dad) and that was the reason, iirc, that Laharl appeared in D3 or one of the other Disgaea games - he was pursuing Baal.
