Hour of Darkness, for the PlayStation®2 Computer Entertainment
Santa Ana, Calif. (February 09, 2006) –NIS America, Inc.
announced today that Disgaea 2, the sequel to the ever
popular strategy role-playing game will be released in North
America for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system.
In 2003, Disgaea was praised as a “sleeper hit”, earning it
a chapter in the history of gaming enthusiasm and securing
its legacy for the future.
Today, Disgaea 2 incorporates some of the same features
it did in the original to retain its “Do anything & try everything”
heritage while making radical innovations that include suggestions
from game fans. One such innovation is the new Geo battle
system that adds new depth and strategic possibilities to
the combat by altering the actual battle conditions. Another
revolutionary feature is the Dark Court system where the good
are punished and the evil are praised. In the Netherworld,
you can never be too evil. Whether you love the innovative
battle system or the massive character and item customization
system, Disgaea 2 will fulfill the darkest needs of gamers
“Disgaea 2 is an evolutionary title created with the help
of many people, including our fans. We really appreciate the
support and I simply hope everybody will enjoy this exciting
game”, says Haru Akenaga, President of NIS America.
Responding to fan suggestions and recommendations, Disgaea
2 marks the introduction of a new 3D environment, animated
sprites, and anime cut scenes for NISA. It combines exceptionally
deep, smooth environments with industry-leading sprite design
and animation. The improved graphics exceed the demanding
standards of our fans.
About Disgaea 2
In the peaceful world of Veldime, humans rarely encountered
monsters. That was until Overlord Zenon cursed the land and
all who reside within. With the curse in place, the humans
became monsters and ravaged the world. It is up to Adell,
the last remaining human, to oppose Overlord Zenon’s tyranny
and restore peace and harmony to Veldime.
In Disgaea 2, players will take on the role of a young
fighter named Adell and travel the netherworld to defeat the
evil overlord Zenon. Battles will take place on a 3D grid
based field. During combat, players will take turns between
the enemy to move and attack.
