Here's a treat for all you hardcore Disgaea fans. It's actually kind of funny if you understand Japanese. See, Mao, the main character of the third title is interrupted in his quest by Laharl, Etna, and Flonne, from the first Disgaea game. Laharl says Mao is his son, but Flonne and Etna can't agree...

As the Prinnies would probably say, "Welcome back to the world of Disgaea, d00d." Then they'd probably explode or something. Anyhow, Nippon Ichi has opened up the official Disgaea 3 website, detailing bits of the story and pictures of characters ... you know, the usual website-related stuff. Our pro...

Hardcore RPG fans are all weeping somewhere, grateful that Nippon Ichi has announced a new Disgaea game -- and it looks to be exclusive for PS3. The sequel, which is planned for 2008, doesn't appear to make any "next-gen" visual enhancements for the series, but we don't think Disgaea fans will care...
