Okay, well it's not entirely in English. While the logos and superimposed text in this Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice trailer are all in English, the in-game footage being showcased here are mostly from the Japanese version.

It's one thing to get a bonus for pre-ordering a game and it's another to actually be empowered in deciding what that pre-order bonus will be.

Disgaea 3 certainly doesn't look "next-gen" at first glance. However, Nippon Ichi swears that this title simply wouldn't be possible on any other platform. Marketing coordinator Jack Niida, commented about the game's sprites, and the complexities they feature:"It's simply because PS2 lacks the proc...

How important are graphics in the scheme of game design? Do they trump audio? Level design? Gameplay?
