I'm a big fan of pixel art and retro goodness, but I've gotta say, I can't see using anything but the higher resolution option: It's still pixel-based art, but it's pixel-based art at its finest.

Disgaea 4 releases in Japan on February 24, 2011, with NIS America bringing the title to North America next summer.
