Santa Ana, CA – NIS America announced today that Disgaea®DS for the Nintendo DS has shipped to retailers nationwide.
Disgaea®DS builds upon the original Disgaea’s intuitive battle system and quirky storyline by incorporating refreshing new features. Players will initially take on the role of Overlord Laharl, a young demon prince who has just woken from a two-year long nap and finds out that his father, who was the king, has passed away. In order to regain his rightful title as King of the Netherworld, Laharl sets off on a demonic adventure, but must do so with a back stabbing servant, love stupid angel, and a few disgruntled penguins who are looking for trouble.
About Disgaea® DS
Disgaea’s game system is simple yet addictive. It has the same basic concept as other strategy RPGs, but uses many unique features and enhancements that make this game unprecedented. The following are some of the special features of Disgaea® DS:
Geo Panels – A group of stat-altering elemental properties that are placed upon certain parts of the battlefield. When there are one or more colored panels on the battle grid, it means an element can affect that area. The effect can boost or reduce your unit’s stats
Geo Cubes – A new addition to the PSP version, Geo Cubes are magic items that add more depth to multi-player battles. You can use the various Geo Cubes to enhance your abilities, summon monsters, or even attack your enemies with them.
Demon Gadgets – Randomly generated items that appear on the battlefield. By acquiring these gadgets, you can power-up your units. Some demon gadgets can level your unit up by 30 levels at once.
