Disgaea 2 PSP

The latest activity on the Disgaea front has recently come to light in the form of 魔界戦記ディスガイア2 PORTABLE / Makai Senki Disgaea 2 Portable, a PSP port of Disgaea 2.

The game will feature additional content in the form of an unwanted Actare story arc, with the character taking on the role of protagonist for a while. At least it isn’t Etna.

Speaking of which, there’s no word on additional Etna material…

Various additional extras and gameplay tweaks are also promised.

Release is due on March 26th, and pre-orders have already opened. It’s not clear whether an international release is due.

Via Dengeki.

Those looking for something more original might like to check out the Prinny based title instead…

A straightforward adaptation of a PS2 game to the PSP is slightly embarrassing, although not as embarrassing as a Disgaea 3 PSP adaptation will be;  Nippon Ichi really ought to at least make some effort to bring the technology level of this otherwise excellent series up to scratch.

    I assume that like the PSP port for the original Disgaea, it's not going to be lacking anything especially noteworthy from the PS2 version?

    I'm glad to hear this. I need more SRPG's that I can take on the go. I have enough games to sit in front of my TV and play without the gigantic timesinks that the Disgaea games can be.

    ^^^ I definately want a Disagaea 3 port to PSP ^^^

    I only have the first Disgaea for PSP, which is a great title but... Disgaea 3 just has soooo much stuff in it and I like the changes they made from the original.

    Agreed! Never make a 3D Disgaea. It will ruin Disgaea's Shine. And I've been waiting this port so long and now it's coming. Can't wait!

    dang. Thats a hot picture of rozalin O_O... anyway YAY i knew this game would come out on the PSP. I'd be more suprised if it came out on the DS. It and whoever said that this game should be in 3D should just not play the game duh. Disgaea really wouldn't look that great in 3D

    A PS2 game to a PSP isn't an embarrassment. It's an improvement.

    Seeing Disgaea 2 to the PSP is a great relief to us PSP gamers..seeing the 3rd installment would also be great.

    Really, I'm sick of PSone imports to the PSP and more good games for the Nintendo DS

    That's right

    Why DS can have a shit load of FF/DQ remakes, and PSP don't?

    3D might come out ok if done like a Naruto game or Valkyria, but what is really annoying is that we still don't get huge high res sprites and CG...

    Personally, I hope 3D Disgaea will never happen.

    Agreed, This compared to Square Enix's Dissidia looks completely bland T_T

    It's fine for those who love 2D sprites, like myself. It's not supposed to stand up to a game like Dissidia. They're in completely different genres.

    Why even compare it to Dissidia when it´s not even in the same genre?

    My biggest concern is why they are releasing all these titles to PSP instead of creating new ones.

    Disgaea should never be in 3d, never. It would ruin everything.

    eh, it could work. it'd be kind of fun if you could actually use Laharl's wings. It wouldn't be good if it was like a Spyro ripoff or something, but something more kingdom hearts-ish could work. Prinny's pretty decent, and I'd have never figured Disgaea could become a 2d game. I'd be hella happier if they let me be something aside from a goddamn pitiful Prinny in Prinny, tho

    Actare is unwanted?
    would I ever feel do-not-want towards any character that's voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama?
    NO!!

    I'll still buy it first day, even if it is merely a rehash of the original. Would be nice if there were more anime cinema like aspects, similar to Persona 3/4, and the Final Fantasy Tactics port.

    I was chuffed as chips when I heard this news.

    I still am.
