I suppose having so many damn reissues convinced SCEA that Disgaea would be worth OKing.

Can't really comment on the others. I'll wait and see how they're received by the sites and people I know.

Grim Grimoire looks promising.  I like the premise and the artwork.

Because of a recent obsession with "that style". ... I would hump Vanillaare for their games Odin Sphere and Grim Grimoire.

That does look interesting, even though I don't know anything about the game itself.  Is much known about this game and/or its play style?

I'm quite impressed by the visuals in the Dragoneer's Aria trailer, I never expected NIS to be bringing out IMO one of the more visually impressive 3D PSP games, those in game characters and that dragon really look good  to me.  I don't know if that's indicative of the game itself or its graphics since I had never heard of it before but I hope to enjoy that game if it's actually any good.

My PSP is steadily getting a lot more work these last months.

I've been keeping my eyes on Soul Cradle for quite some time now, so I'll be getting it as soon as I can get my hands on it. For the other titles, I stand a bit skeptical as usual. But Grim Grimoire does looks interesting enough. But it seems to be one of those titles that I really have to play myself before forming a valid opinion. I am looking forward to Odin Sphere though.

Wow, I see what you guys are talking about!  Odin Sphere really does look incredible.  That's some sweet side-scrolling action and I love the art style.

Great trailer.

Definitely looking forward to Grim Grimoire. Finally, an RTS from NIS. And the artwork's nice, too. Dark, magical, gothic; it's like, Harry Potter, except not stupid or childish.

Soul Cradle looks outrageous; looks to be Disgaea 3, but with even MORE decadance and depravity!

I'm excited for Disgaea Portable, especially since the story will be told on Etna's perspective, not making it much of a port.
