Can I assume a veteran Disgaea player can skip the tutorials? I've grown weary of doing them again and again throughout each installment just to learn one new feature.

I'm super glad we can choose colors now. I liked Disgaea 2's "Scout" level Thief's color scheme more than the others, and now I can choose that!

"Oh, and now humanoid units can ride monsters and train them to perform special attacks."
Okay. Already planning a team of half-female humans, half-Nekomatas. The yuri/monstergirl team rides on!

Definitely looking forward to this.

What I've seen so far looks good (the graphics are definitely spiffier).

With all the other games coming out around then though, it's going to have to compete for my time (and probably win in most cases XD). I mean, I'll have FFXIV and GTAV to play too >_>

I don't expect to get this game before October though, as I'm importing it from the USA, from NISA's online store (because of exclusive goodies).

EDIT: Mikau Kahn - We could probably get away with skipping them, but I won't. They're usually fairly straightforward, not too time consuming, and often contain some humor. We could choose color palettes in previous Disgaea games (I can't remember when it was introduced. Either D3 or D4. I don't remember how we did it either).

Mikau Kahn Hahah, you're my new favorite. The chapter-based tutorials aren't skippable, as they contain narrative, but I imagine any experienced players will burn through them in no time at all. General tutorials can be burned through pretty fast as well. I don't believe they're all outright skippable, however.

I've barely played the original Disgaea but for some reason I'm hyped for D2. I guess I should restart D1 at some point so the hype of D2 isn't lost

Playing through tutorials won't be the death of me, and I guess it'll be worth playing through them to experience all that original-Disgaea-cast banter.

Whats with October? First Pokemon X and Y, then Rune Factory 4 gets pushed back until then, and now Disgaea D2 is set for the same day as RF4. Well, at least Disgaea fits right in with Halloween.

It's actually shocking that from what sources are saying, the game is getting release in EU/AU (late September) before NA (Early October). I wonder if it has something to do with GTA5? Seems unlikely, since they're not similar games at all, but perhaps NISA (and other companies) want a buffer anyway. Why EU/AU didn't get the buffer, if that's what it is, I dunno.

ImmoStride - You should. Try to get Afternoon of Darkness (PSP) if you can. More content and all that. I still like D1 the most of all of the Disgaea games.

Shadow of Death

I personally like Disgaea 2's story more, but I like Disgaea 1's characters more, but I like Disgaea 4's gameplay features more, but I like Disgaea 3's Classroom System a lot...

Shadow of Death - I would get that if I didn't already have the original PS2 version. I'd love to get Afternoon of Darkness but there's nowhere nearby that has it in stock ;-;

Duncan Idaho ~ Already read it this morning, thanks. I was kind irritated that EU is getting it before NA.
