NIS America (NISA), the American subsidiary of the Nippon Ichi Software game company, announced on Thursday that it will release its parent company's Disgaea Dimension 2: A Brighter Darkness role-playing game on PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe this fall.
The Disgaea D2 strategy role-playing game sequel takes place after the events of the first Disgaea game. Although Laharl (voiced by Kaori Mizuhashi) has officially become Overlord of the Netherworld, no one except a few demons and higher angels in Heaven accept him as the Overlord (or realize his new position). In order to prove himself, he creates the new goal of ruling all demons with an iron fist.
The Overlord's vassal Etna (Tomoe Hanba) and the Fallen Angel Flonne (Yuko Sasamoto) return for the sequel, while Kaori Ishihara joins the cast as Sicily, who is described as "the Overlord's younger sister?" Rounding out the cast is Minori Chihara as the demon Barbara and Daisuke Hirakawa as the mysterious demon Zenolith. Chihara also performed the opening theme song "Cradle Over."
The game will ship in Japan on March 20. The first Disgaea game was released in North America by Atlus USA in 2003. Geneon Entertainment released the anime adaptation of the first game in 2006, and the license was recovered by Funimation when Geneon Entertainment ceased in-house North American distribution. Broccoli Books licensed the Disgaea manga, and released two volumes of the four Disgaea 2 manga until it also closed its doors.
